Western Heat Wave Virtually Impossible Without Climate Change, Researchers Say

But if you read the report itself, which I didn't detail its base, it's essentially flawed. And in fact It's not even consistent internally. Um, the headline says, Oh, this thing could never have happened without global warming. Then you read inside the report you say they say, Well, it could have happened, but by by random chance it could have happened by natural processes.

"the seattle times" Discussed on Bourbon Pursuit
"Hausky club DOT COM to check it out and try some bar for yourself. Use Code Pursuit for twenty five dollars off. Your first box is the reason. Why we don't see anybody buying up a Lotta distilleries that could potentially be going out of business or putting their their. You know the commitment up for sale or whatever it is you know. Keep the product going. Because we've seen only a few really get acquired over the past few years and probably Woodinville might be like one of the biggest names that we've actually seen recently of a big conglomerate. That's bought a craft whiskey and really pumped a lot of money into it so they could produce more like. Why are we not seeing that more? I don't think Quantum Kenny aren't to the point where their Bible or sellable or however you want to think of somebody. You know like Woodinville there. They've gotten their they've invested. What my best to get there. They've got distribution. They need to get there. They've got at the time he need to get there. But I think a lot of cases the big edge just going to do a better on their own you know. They don't necessarily need to do that if they start from scratch. They're GONNA be able to to their only in Abaya something it's the they've already succeeded so once they've succeeded now. They're a potential for a sale in the promise. A lot of these have not really reached that success. There's still on the APP to the success in the problem is if you clip them now they can never get there. They can't get to the point where they've got enough value to be able to write something like this out or be bought by somebody bigger or something like that. Yeah Woodinville like a a perfect storm. It's like right there you know. It's thirty minutes from Seattle. They had distribution in California. I mean which is the number one you know drinking state closed. The Texas is like a just incredible product credible story. It's like you know I think it really just depends. These guys are located because most of these craft steelers are very regional focused. And so if they're in a region where you know you're your position to capitalize off of it makes sense but other than that. It's you know it's hard to it's hard to pony up some big bucks just to you know win a regional player. I don't know you know there's somebody in Texas you know that's like regional player. Who's in a lot of debt? Right now I mean you're buying that debt I mean you. Can you can make up a story. And you know the pirate a few people in and then you've got your own story in your little sub brand without on all that debt. I mean it's it's it's a tough by make if if this truly is a sinking ship and that's how the big guys are looking at it. Why would they jump in as almost like a bailout now like it sounds bad but they would probably just let them blow up? You know go through bankruptcy. Get rid of the debt and then day could come in and make an offer But you know to just jump in and try to buy everything like Brian said you know they're strapped a debt all this other stuff. Where's the advantage Whereas most of these guys that we're seeing get bought up like a rabbit hole and that kind of stuff They had good distribution or like a Kentucky Owl. Who had a national National presence without actually being distributed so there there's kind of a course for making them a large national brand so the way that I also see this is that a lot of the big players When I say players the people that are other larger portfolios of spirits the essentially needed whiskey or bourbon in their portfolio in. That's when some of the buying happened. You know if I take this and I try to relate to what we see inside of the Tech World. I look at it as You know for the lot of the big companies. They don't really try to innovate because they just don't move fast enough So what they do. Is they wait for one or two players a fight out a new technology? Inside of the space they kind of see who emerges and before before that technology becomes mainstream goes big they swallow them up and then they put more money into them so they can grow bigger and help grow that business so it just kind of I kind of see that as kind of like a difference in this world versus that world where there is an opportunity for a lot of these companies able to go and try whiskey from a lot of different places and be able to figure out like okay like we can figure out who's who's got potentially here who can we swallow up and and who could we really help our portfolio at the end of the day some of this tooth just based on the economy right like in a in an economy that's booming. You wanted spend money you want to acquire. You WanNa go out and do those kinds of things but in Konami that we're in right now where it's it's kind of fear based right. It's kind of like hold on steady. The ship let's just get through this and Hopefully come out on the other side I think. Don't you think that might have some intact to on on some companies may buying up other companies? Yeah I mean I would say right now. There's there's a lot of hesitation just for anything I mean everybody's doesn't really matter how big your portfolio is like. You're you're losing money right now. Yeah however it is also an opportunity cost and that's what also when we look at in our own daily lives when the stock market took a shit. What do we do? Did we sit back and wait or did we look at this? My Hey this is a good time. Let's go invest the money. I know that you know it just depends on where you sit comfortably out of like where do you? Where do you look at this as an opportunity to go either invest or do you look at it like we should just hold tight and counter pennies while we still have them yet? But I think they'll have a while to figure I. I just think this is GonNa drag on longer than we wanted to. And the is just so uncertain right. Now what's going to happen you know? And it's in its regional because the states are so in charge of like in like I said these craft guys are so regional It's it's Kinda hard to predict which way it's going to go one way or the other any other final thoughts before we move on. Now I just want to do a go fund me for Blake's Internet hit getting. That's that's the next thing on list to get fixed of by answer actually get into the Into the show or is it just all start? Cutting you know sometimes blake we just look at your face your pretty face and really enjoyable and we just forget what you're saying. Yeah I know it's bad when my brothers text me like you know you're frozen right trying to figure it out but no I mean I I think it is. You know it is a big thing and we'll see out plays out but for people getting bought up. I just don't think it'll be the right time until we can actually see what plays out and I hope that's not what happens. You know I want to see more independent craft distillers out there doing. They're saying and being supported by either their local community regional community. And all that stuff. So I think that's. That's a advantage for the drinker. So we lose that You know that's a big loss. Yeah and I don't know WHO's left to be purchased really you know who's got Brian National. There's two thousand distilleries across the nation. We tried like this many. So it's like I'm just saying like you know I understand. There's yeah but most of them are not besides wilderness trail. You know they I mean that would be. Probably the the one you would think would be the most appealing to investors But other than that I mean. Not Just pats in Chad but Even like a four barrel. Yes there's there's all but you know you think about. I mean like a wire who gets all kinds of national attention for their Jimmy. Red Corn there in garden. They were guarding guns. A product of the year last year. So they're always in like the Anything made Misao stare in it. Y- you know. There's there's a lot of different ones out there but It is a different business model than like the beer guy so as soon as one bird tot Budweiser Inbev. Whoever it is now comes in and buys them up It's a little bit different on the distilling side and end with the beer to mean. I've noticed Goose Island Bourbon County. Stout has been on the shelves here. It's Christmas since Thanksgiving consistently so you know with beer. You can just ramp up production. You know they've already got a product that's hot. They can increase the production on that product. They can get it distributed in you know what in maybe while may people feel like it's still exclusive and now it's like now. I see it on the shelves all the time so I'm not as enticed by it because I know it's going to be there the next time to. Why do I need to stock up on with all these craft distilleries if they don't really have a brand in everyone's kind of behind already this really hot in? They can't really produce that quickly and they don't really have distribution. You gotTA start to think. Well what are we really buying here? What what is it that is going to bring some value to somebody else? You GonNa need some of that magic in there recipe because it's not like technology like you were talking about Kenny where somebody has created some new thing that can be a component or some. You know some part of something else I mean everyone in a Lotta ways is is really kind of doing the same thing. They're just they're doing it with a different story in a different feel and a different flavor profiles different people behind the scenes. You know that kind of thing. So they don't have some of that magic and momentum to start which is what they worked so hard know to get in the first place then it would. Is it really to buy besides a whole heck of a lot of debt you know and the problems of accompany? It may be a person that wants control. It won't give it up to anybody you know that you're gonna be that's GonNa come along with that you know so I think it's just that type of businesses it's not as salable as you might think In a lot of people who are going to get involved you're going to get involved on their own passionate about it. They're going to start from scratch you or they're big company and they're just going to wait until somebody's done all the legwork and they can kinda sweet bend may be a little bit more but you've already kind of brought that point that they've struggled with you know the themselves like for example. Mvp however they not really been able to get a product of their own to be popular. You know like they're a good candidate to say let's by a brand. That's become popular as we noticed with George Reema. For example they didn't pass bought some more to believe you know there's an example of just like they don't have that magic and momentum to might be out looking for somebody else they can do it if they really. WanNa get in that game whereas a lot of these other big brands. They they already do that themselves. So who were they going to be who they buy? Why would they buy any? I don't know about the big brands getting in pursuit series to have their own distillery so when someone goes belly up I want. They're ready in own a distillery. Just look at the dog and it turns out like Green Ra like it's closer now. I can barely make like bleach cleaner for my wife's hair salon. So much less dissolute future future taste the future. Just call it heads and only give the heads of every production and I like that because with because with a gift card to Walgreens say goodbye yourself. Some readers envision Whoa so. Let's kind of start wrapping this up a little bit with a one last subject here because we look at you know we. We've talked a lot about today. Craft distilleries and stuff like that. However there's one is still lary that is now bringing in h statement back which is kind of almost unheard of and so we look at what Knob Creek is done recently so knob creek for awhile and should I say this. I think the Gaba was two three years ago. They actually took off their age statement from their regular standard releases. However we used to see like up to like fourteen or fifteen year releases out actually happen at private barrel selections. So one thing that we're finally seeing is that now there is believe it's a twelve year blue label and I think it's a nine year Brown label that is starting to make their way back and I know Nick. You all have done a recent review on the twelve year. I believe correct of your join reviewed. I haven't had it yet. But he he liked it quite a bit in. The response was really positive on the twelve year. I think is funny because a lot of people talked about. Why would you buy that when you buy a.

How many arrests is enough twenty thirty would you believe a hundred and five over fourteen years? We'll talk about a local of Duchesne suspect and his lengthy time in a revolving door. But first, let's talk about King County officials in homelessness again. And let's again, I mean, this is this not only is the story that we talk about a lot on the show and every show here at Cairo. It's also an election year so you are not going to hear any shortage of stories discussion about the homeless and weirdly enough, we got a little bit of good news. Just a short while ago. King County officials reported in eight percent. Overall drop in the homeless numbers with one group, the chronically homeless people or those who with a disabling condition who've been homeless for year or longer showing a thirty eight percent drop. The Seattle times is now reporting that the steep drop in homes populations is kind of become an issue in itself, because people are starting to wonder whether or not, this is reflects an accurate count in this has been this underscores the difficulty in counting homeless populations. It's always been a problem. The city has city and county both on all actually every place with this is done Los Angeles. Another one. That's actually seen in the same period of time a. Twelve percent increase in Los Angeles. I think has in the neighborhood of forty five thousand homeless people. This particular point I can understand why people would be skeptical though, because you start to question. Okay. We'll when was this count done. What was the weather like when you were doing that was especially cold, where they're more people who happen to find shelter that one particular night, is it only one nine is more than one night? And so you kind of start thinking well is this accurate from what I see every single day. And so the way they try to, to account for that is to is to count every year around the same time under similar conditions, and they send people out to the same areas to do the count. And they try to get developed a methodology that will at least you'll at least even if it's not a perfectly accurate number, you will, which is never going to be you'd never going to establish that it is at least comparable to itself. So if you're counting the same manner all the time, and you're seeing a riser decrease you've got at least some plausible you make some plausible conclusion about which way it's true. Trend to even if you don't know all the final numbers specifically. But now that there is this idea that, wow. That thirty eight percent drop sound seems pretty unusual. Even the even the people who are advocates for more money to be spent on the homeless, and the and more programs to become available, certainly mental health treatment of things like that. They're saying that even they are kind of wondering. Why would we get?.

"Gibson Pinon piece on the Seattle times. I didn't know the background on the reasons that we can lock kids up sometimes. But there is a Becca Bill is named after a young girl named Rebecca headman and at a very early age state had to remove her from her home, and she was placed into care, and the parents then adopted this young lady around twelve years old. She started his skip school in engaging in destructive behaviors and our parents they wanted treatment for her, but she would run away from the facilities at thirteen horribly. She was raped traffic for drug money. Eventually she was killed in a really really, awful fashion. So this effort to try to give children the right of twelve years old to make their own decisions, the states restricted bekker's parents effort to bring her home. So this this piece in the times makes the case that it is reluctantly sometimes the fact that we need to be able to retain kids detained kids in ways that might otherwise make us uncomfortable. So what approach the issue of kids? We've talked about foster kids running away. Sometimes they feel like that's the only thing they can do. And so are we doing the right thing in the inner reform of giving us more ability to hold kids? And in fact, adults two separate Bill for a longer period of time. What's think about that? You know, I think that's probably a pretty good idea. I would say that I do like the idea of there being some sort of. Official oversight. Right. I like the idea of of some form when you're when you're going to be holding a kid that the especially a kid who has somehow it looks like a kid who was on the borderline or has already entered the system that's a kid that needs monitoring not just from parents, but probably from the court system or something along those lines. But yeah, I I mean, there's still there's still the ward of the parents, and I think the parents should have a fair bit of control on that. I would like there to be some sort of a board to say every mental health situation for minor is unique because it is. So by that all sizes fit none that comes into this category. For sure like you can't say twelve year old that is running away because of an incest situation that wants to get an abortion that is considered part of a medical decision that she wants to be in charge of or whatever the case may be because he gets so complicated. When you start talking about guardianship and miners, and who is. Is in actual control of what you have to have a panel or aboard. Look at all the moving pieces of that puzzle and go, okay, you do this good go. So me show this with you. I've talked to two parents this week. Well, we have two parents. They're they're married parents separate families don't know each other each of them are taking the kid out of state because they can't retain them here. They can't detain them here. These your parents with good incomes. They're they're good families. Not that you can you can have a low income and be a great great parent. My mom was they can't keep their kids held up any longer. Both. These kids are saying if you leave me alone, I will kill myself and they've run out of room, and it would require candy aboard it would require going to a judge. It would require a special retainer. There are other states in the union where you go and you say my kid is suicidal intent and the kid says. Yeah, I got to kill myself. Even if the kid says, no, I don't they can prove. Yeah, I need my kid needs help they can be held for a year or more. They could be held sometimes for two years. While they're getting substantive real help. But there's some terrible facilities and there's some great facilities. So I guess I want our state to recognize that. Yes, there is no such thing as one-size-fits-all doesn't work that way. But when you're talking about a kid's life. I it's different thing. And then the foster care thing that this gets really complicated to me, Mike you've worked in the system. You know, the system these kids they're running away, and we ended up putting them in juvenile detention. And that that is not I cannot get there. If a kid is saying, I can't be in this foster home because that's such a unique and terrible circumstance any idea. What to do? There's it a special facilities at a group home. What are we even do? I mean, the most of the prevailing wisdom and to be completely clear. I worked for a foundation that did this sort of work, but I've never been a social worker. I've never actually had to go on. I've been to homes that that with foster kids in foster kids are being adopted out. I do not have social workers perspective on this. Although I have a lot of sympathy for what they do. The generally, it's it's the kids. There are kids who run away were definitely kids who have problems in these some of these problems are why they ended up in foster care to begin with. Sometimes they're coming out of families that are so broken that these kids it's a miracle that these kids are still alive. Criminalizing? They're running away is criminalising running away period. Yeah. This is a bad idea, particularly in the foster care system. You are absolutely. You've already remanded kids to foster care, which is going to to make the likelihood of their success at any level. You know, it's going to minimize that. But then you add a criminal violation on top of that. And now you've really put this kid on a track where this kid is not going to succeed. I think removing the criminal violation for running away. Even if the kid has terrible reasons to run away removing that criminal Mark is vital to at least get the kids back in a situation where they're stable. So let me make these suggestions on the foster care system. I would like to see an I'm not trying to pick on the we spent four million in the tunnel. If you listen to the show, occasionally, no occasionally, I found that silly. But how about a program to promote the idea of adoption of these kids who would otherwise be in the foster care system. We like, okay. So you're gonna adopt a kid from Russia. I have friends who did that friends who've adopted kids from China good for you that feels really good. But how about? Voting the adoption of kids in this state, and maybe a tax benefit comes from that. Because God knows are people not many. But there, well, I don't know how many people in the foster care system. They get kids money making enterprise. So what we start there with the foster thing of of get these kids into an adoption path. At least they have a better shot than the fosters. Just there. There's a lot being done on that right now. I mean that is a tremendous amount of education in millions of dollars being spent on telling people and telling people when they go to a private adoption, sometimes they will also say look have you thought about this? I think these are people who really want to see good things happen to kids. But the problem in the foster care system is not adopting out the the the one year old to five years old. The problem is teens and that particularly late teens like they get adopted at a bismuth rates and those are kids frequently who need that help. So they're the ones that ended up in the group homes, and then eventually are on the streets or some sort of transitional house. So I'll tell you something maybe I shouldn't tell this. But. To get decent care sometimes for a kid who's in deep behavioral health challenges suicide of challenges you're talking about ten to fifteen thousand dollars a month for a year cash money. I would be if I look at look at the numbers for the foster kids who are in that age strata, maybe a great home like that. Right. That's actually behavioral health oriented. It's actually about grounding them and getting their center of the internal local control. All those like therapeutic talk things navy that at the age of thirteen when you end up in foster care. Maybe we spend the money that way that I would be. I am a guy that likes to save government money. I could be in for that. Yeah. I mean, again, some of that is actually happening. It's happening at varying levels, depending on where the where the group home is the idea also is that they have their care workers. They have their their particular worker trying to reestablish this kid's relationship if they can with family, they find that when they can create that bond again that these kids are much more likely to leave foster care with some sort of relationship to people blood relationship to people that actually can help them out. Because they've got when they get out of foster care. What do they have another sixty years out there or maybe fifty years out there without a lot of guidance strongpoint picks now from that, Mike Chris Sullivan? I have a sense. I'm looking at you. I see a smile on your face about the check traffic..

"I am Mike Lewis. I'm here with candy Harper. And we are not we are here with the Todd bought. Here's the crazy thing. I can tell you. I'm not really there. It's an algorithm. He's not wrong. He's not once it is an algorithm. Everything only took three hours ever since we saw that documentary. The matrix lead has this is what we have learned. We're going to talk a little bit about the lurking threat, actually, potentially inside your inside here comes. It's actually not funny. It's a it's a fairly serious thing that new science on this. But first, we're gonna talk about a whole bunch of cars that were very very missing since via doom began, Tracy. What can you tell us about the fact that there seems to be fewer cars out there than there was before? Yes. I read the Seattle times latest issue or rather article, and they were talking about the fact that it feels like ninety thousand cars have disappeared. Well, where I agree with a lot of this article. There are parts that I think I think that were failing to see I, you know, it's great that bike ridership is up. I am. So beyond overjoyed that people. Over the last week or testing out. What transit can do for them. See if it really works in and conducive what their schedules. However, my friends what I have noticed in the research that I have done over the last I would say thirteen fourteen days that we've seen this closure is that the commuter starting much earlier, and we are going much later. So there is a lot of people that are starting their days earlier than normal actually a half an hour to an hour earlier than normal and some of them are deciding to take a later later drive into the city and working much later. So they avoid that evening rush. So I don't know if we've taken that into account or not. But that's what I have noticed since the start of the closure. So the ninety thousand was it ninety ninety thousand are we sure it's ninety and it seems like the nine thousand that typically were traveling every day on the viaduct the question the story was like where did all these cards go because they could see an increase in places, but it's still not accounting for that. Except Tracy raises an excellent point. It's not a literally accounting for whether it's ninety thousand cars went, but that could be that they'll same cars are just leaving earlier apparently or coming into Seattle a bit later than normal or they you know, we did have that first week. We had a great stretch of weather. We really did. And a lot of people decided to take their bike. And we saw a just an uptick in people riding their bikes. And of course, you know, I really fall back on the fact that a lot of people tested transit because it just doesn't work for everybody schedule, and they did that little shift here and there to see if it would work for them. I think some people really enjoyed it. And they found that this could be a new way of life in a new way of commuting for themselves. And then there's other people that I would say I've seen a lot of my social media. A platform saying, Nope, it's not working for me. It's not working for my schedule. I just spent two and a half hours on a bus where it would have taken me about an hour in my own vehicle. So again, we're going to see this shift in patterns now that the weather is starting to work in our favor. Once again, we're going to see a little bit less on the roads. I think a lot of people are going to get once again back on their bikes because the weather is good. They're gonna start trying transit once again. But I think we're going to see as just be the same. Tracy. You got family stay in my house right now. And I told them traffic's no problems. Relax. Yeah. Relax. Yeah. Todd. But todd. Todd Todd is is so wise hasn't been married. Six years..
