Your social media could give scientists a more accurate picture of climate change
"Change means more flooding but the way we traditionally measure flooding isn't telling us how much more example there just one hundred and thirty two tidal gauges along thirty seven hundred miles of the eastern Gulf coast. But there are sixty million people. They're walking around with smartphones. That can report and photograph floods. That's a lot of reporting power and a new study to work. It found twitter is much better at reporting some floods then Standard Methods University of California Davis Environmental Science. Professor Francis Moore is a CO author on that study and joins us today via skype. Hi Francis you look specifically at nuisance flooding. What is that yes so nuisance flooding? Is this kind of low? Level flooding along the coast maybe flooding a road or two disrupting people's lives but they're not necessarily going to be the subject of major reporting so we follow twitter. We see these pictures. Come up once in a while. What locations did your study find? Had this increased nuisance flooding. What we were looking at in particular with whether the amount of flooding you estimate using the twitter data is different from what you get from the tight gauges and in that we found evidence that there were a few places particularly some of the major cities so New York Boston and Miami as well as much of the Texas Gulf coast and that these were areas. You'd see evidence of flooding on twitter before it would show up in the tide gauge data nuisance flooding. You know that name sounds like it's not a big deal right but It can be costly. I mean there are saltwater in pipes underground in basements and utilities. Have you had a chance to look at the economic impact of these increased? Sunny Day floods. Yes so we haven't actually quantified those economic losses. But what I do think is that leave. Mejid kind of disastrous flooding events due generate a love attention they offer confidential and the costly but climate change author presents us with these kind of chronic impacts that are also costly and in particular if that affecting a large number of people. And they're doing it very regularly. Those could be really costly though. People are kind of not able to get to school and not able to get to what the driving conditions dangerous. This type of study can start to get at some of those costs twitter's full of a lot of Information not all of it may be accurate. Not all that may be scientific. So what are the limitations of this? Study the way you used it. And how do you you know weed out what's real and what's not we? Put out the total volume of tweets. That have some wet in them related to flooding and there is a lot of noise in that you can imagine so very often. People are using what related to flooding when they're not actually talking about flooding but we do is we we relate that volume tweets to the local tide height based on tight gauges and if you see a sudden increase in the volume of tweets about flooding that probably due to the fact that there was flooding in that location. So then we can look at. What tight heights? Do you get that sudden increase in the tweets about flooding and we could compare it to what the tight gauge says if the minor flooding threshold in many cases we find those pretty close to each other but then in the cities around the east coast. We find evidence the flooding happening. I kind of low a tight heights than what the tide gauge would suggest. And we're already crowd sourcing. Some weather data through APPs like M. Ping which keeps track of precipitation. What does your study suggests about. Future value for expanding crowdsourced climate data. Well what I think is really nice about the kind of social media type data and why it can really complement the tide gauge network. That we already have is that is telling US something. Not just about the physical extent of the flooding but it's telling us about the social consequences of that

"Commonality fellow in Latin American energy policy at the center for Energy Studies in Mexico Santa and the Latin American initiative at the Baker institute as well as a lecturer in energy economics at Rice University. He's also the founding director and a professor at the center for energy and environment at ES in Venezuela and previously was a professor of political economy at Universidad Catolica unversed bellow in Caracas. Welcome to background briefing Francisco Manali, thank you. So essentially cutting off the cash flow to Maduro, which is what the Trump administration has just done by the secretary of the treasury will this stop Maduro or punish the people because the people in Venezuela authority being punished by Madurai incompetence. And corruption. So how do you see cutting off this cash flow working out in terms of getting Maduro to step down or Willis before the punishment of the Venezuelan people? Sure. So I mean, the US market represents about half of Venezuelan oil exports, and those are the ones who generate most of the kaslo for the company and for the economy because the the one sent to India and China a lot of is to repay that. So this could significantly decrease the cash flow of the country. However, it is also true that they will already redirects these exports to Asia and some of them will generate some cash, so he's not like they will lose half of their of their expert. Having said that as you point thousand already a very critical situation with hyper inflation and massive economic depression. These will makes things even worse. And I could generate more of our humanitarian tragedy than it already has happened. Of course, the the of a US government needs to change their regime, and that will allowed to the money to flow back, and we'll bring help from multilateral institutions and will allow Venezuela to restructure the bad. And all those things until the argument is that. Yes, it might you know, caused some short-term hardship. But you know, if you know, they produce his day intended effect than you know, the things will improve significantly. And of course, the question Mark is is is going to happen. I need of course, it depends a lot on. I what other geopolitical actors like China Russia do in terms of giving a lifeline to the Douro regime on second. It will depend on how the military of Venezuela. Reacting turns off either, you know, circling wagons with a regime that, you know, using the external unexcused, or if they will, you know, decide that this is the time for Maduro to go negotiate next to start the for the top military brass. When you talk about using that they external threat by the military, and by the Madero government, which they've certainly done a lot. Of course, a while back. President Trump threatened the military option. And now we learn from the press conference yesterday with the national adviser John Bolton holding up his yellow notepad with a note saying five thousand troops to Colombia that certainly plays right into Maderas hands. Doesn't know. Yeah. I mean, all of course, its strategy of my has been on will continue to be more. So now to you know, I that you ask for the economic hardship. And then, you know, basically say you had to fight for, you know, for the fatherland we are facing on external threat on on which should be United on the other hand. You know, there is no doubt that the media Venezuelan military. You know, historically, they. Typically, decided not to fight unsolved things, you know, by negotiation on by, you know, settling things with through, you know, a discussion about who has more guns and rather than than fighting it out. It's hard to know. I don't think they are, you know, ideologically committed to these regime. I think most of them are basically in there because they have been benefited tremendously economically by the regime at the Somare incurred in both crimes, and and you know, human rights violations on on don't see our ramp off to go. But, but yes, definitely at least to some a hard core supporters of the regime the external threat than the, you know, the symbolism of the US and Columbia, you know, to sort of adversaries that they. I've always argued will unite them. So at this point the US is the state departments. Now saying that all Venezuela's assets in the United States, and now controlled by the leader of the opposition, the president of the national assembly one way, and if the US moves against the retail outlets citgo of Venezuelan oil, wouldn't that mean that for example, other companies like the Canadian mining company that was nationalized and who Chevenez who has all kinds of suits out against the Venezuelan government. Will they be first in line? I mean, what what's going to happen to citgo and the possibility of of other debt collectors from around the world whose property was nationalized under the previous administration. Okay this. Yeah. On on top of those claims. That I've arbitration the seasons in their favor for expert patients, you have also, you know, the bondholders that have collateral the shares of half of the sheriff citgo Android NAFTA, the Russian oil company, you also has collateral of the other half. I think you know, both the sanctions the way they have been beside flaws. The statements by the Trump administration seem to point bad. They want to protect the assets from all these claims in order to allow the Wytheville administration to, you know, have some funds and unto, you know, be able to preserve these sold out the recovery of Venezuela afterward would be less costly here, of course, since we have, you know, independent and independent judiciary. I think so some of these will depend on a lot of about the powers of the executive, and you know, and I will do will be managed in terms of. The legal extractor etcetera. But my perception is that they will try. I mean that that the claims all these actors have right now made much harder to execute to you know, getting control over seat goals, either revenues or the or the sale of people to pay back their old. Well, the bottom line here seems to be Francis. Commonality that this incredibly incompetent government Medeiros that has taken an oil rich country that was sort of model of South America in terms of prosperity. Although, of course, it did have the wide gap in income, which has been common throughout Latin American, and unfortunately is extremely very much the case here in the United States. Nevertheless, the what they've done what seems to have kept Madeira going in the trickle down economy. And of course, the military generals in his cronies get the cream off the top. Unless unless it's going to the people, and what they've done to limp along is as they mismanage the economy is to mortgage their will to Russia, China and to the bondholders so at this point. Is this a competition between the Americans who are owed money or who have collateral against loans all the Russians and the Chinese. Well, you know, I think that the US government knows that or in its intent is to help. I mean, they know that that that moves agencies and the US on the western world will have to help and to reconstruct itself on on on there the economy to avoid, you know, continuing refugee, crisis, etc. So my sense is that the the government of US. Of course, there are interest groups in the US bondholder and all the companies that that might want to see south. But I think that the US government will try to avoid that from happening. Then similarly the Russians will have a very hard time, you know, executing berry collateral, and in the case of the Chinese, basically, I think all of these actors will have to be part of our Deb restructuring and renegotiation. This is big. Equivalent of country that went into bankruptcy, and you have much more claims that what they can pay. And so in the end, I mean, there is no such thing as bankruptcy court. So so he will not be easing bought. A combination of the multilateral agency side, the US government. I think we'll try to avoid these being something which you know, all these acids disappear without the any capacity of the Golan to restructure its debt than recover the economy. My understanding is what's happened to the national company through that period of chevette. And then it got a lot worse under Madero is that they would just taking all the oil revenue in essentially, I the screaming off the top for themselves and their cronies, and then giving this kind of trickle down Lage's. And frankly, a lot of people were very sympathetic to the policies of Gustavus particularly on the left because it did seem like he was really concerned about leveling the disparity in income and helping the poor. But now the is that in Venezuela. The people who are suffering most other poor and mine understanding is that essentially what they've done is a just sort of taking care of currencies bribe the people with the money from the oil revenues, but not invest in any of it back into the oil company, the national oil company, and that's the real problem. The the amount of oil that they've been able to expert over the years has dwindled every year to I think it's about is it about half of what they were pumping about ten years ago. I mean, that's isn't that the essential problem that they simply haven't invested in their their number one resource. And they've let it to go to reckon ruin. I mean that that's without a doubt one of the key elephants. I mean there also the case that they you know, beat anybody anywhere else. Not only in the in the industry, basically was a consumption, boom. Without any actual real either economic growth are significant productivity and investment. So they did for a while, you know, five significant support because of these TV. High oil rents from the commodities fries, boom. But as reports out production was going down even in the good years when the rest of, you know, all exporting countries in the world actually were increasing production because the prices were high end, it was attractive, and of course, when the collapsing twenty fourteen without really in that country and a national company, you know, the simply they crashed and they didn't invest and the production collapsed much more rapidly than it had been slowly declining before and you're right. It's the production is about half of what he was when Travis came into power. And it seems that he's going to continue to the Klein, particularly now that that you know, that the sanctions have been imposed. And of course, the problem is that a lot of that oil as you as you said before goes to repay debts or either giving away the. The magic market for free. So, you know, the the government is starved of cash, and that's why you have a hyper inflation because they basically find themselves by printing money. Well, just just to wrap up though on on the general oil picture since share a specialist on the Venezuelan oil sector, Franciscan Manali. My understanding is that Venezuela produces a very heavy crude, and they're very few places where that oil can be refined mostly on the Texas Gulf Coast Kubrick can refine it and they've been given subsidized oil for some time. I believe that is a dwindling. I think cure sow also can process this oil, but in order to even get the oil to the market the Venezuelans have to mix it with light crude from Algiers and other countries because it is so thick and heavy. So can they afford to even by the light? Crude. They need to make the mix in order to export what they have. That's as you point out a big problem. Venezuela, the extra they have two ways of exporting one is the one that you just mentioned blending you beneath with a not not that much. They're doing it more now with refined products actually from the US rather than with light oil from from Africa, but a little bit of light over from Russia their upbringing it for that. But but they have to with refined process or or. Therapies, they have some facilities. Call upgraders, which are sort of refineries that allow these you know, heavier to become. Has lighter oil the thing is that those facilities are in very bad shape, and they are producing about half of their capacity. And as a result about two hundred thousand barrels of extra heavy oil. So they are exported by blending. And and the thing is that that requires about a hundred thousand barrels of imports it refined products from the US or light oil from elsewhere. You said that means that now they will have to import everything from a probably Russia because I don't think even cheerio Nigeria. We'll we'll be into. He's not a don't pay upfront. So that will even further reduce the capacity to generate cash flow..
