If I is an interactive corn boxing gym, it comes with everything you need to start boxing and actually follow videos that are built by the best trainers of all the west coast they all fighters they all have obviously a tremendous fight expands but they're also great fitness instructor general for the listener on on our show that has never seen. It's what should be should be mentioned punching back and a pair of gloves. So what be? Yes. So it comes with a free standing bag. The best standing back on the market with a pair of didn't win leather gloves made an approved by fighters with a workout Matt, a pair of with be called quick grabs and the special sauce is who? Motion trackers that you put into quick wraps Ma and detract your hands a thousand times per second trek speed and my my punches. How many punches I'm doing per minute of what should I expect? Yes they tracked the type of country throw the measured the speed of the bunches basically build your output profile from one round to the other. What about impact? Not The impact is really the velocity. Okay. The of your hand and which actually throwing and how does like the coaching look like you were mentioning that you have coaches of all over the place and should I imagine like watching them like on my TV or iphone ourselves for me? Yes. So it comes with an APP you can the. Myriad on a large screen TV or you can watch the workouts on an IPAD whatever you prefer, and then from there, it's Kinda like all you can eat buffet. Really. So if you're advanced, you can jump straight into the advanced workouts right away we go and deep into the complex combinations. We'd practice footwork and the workouts very intense. Otherwise, it can literally start at the very first time. You've you're you're throwing your first punch. So we have what we call the prospect where it takes you from zero boxing experience teaches you to six inches and then at the end of the prospect path which. is about a four weeks program you actually know how to six months probably you know how to stand you know the basics Balkan it's mostly regular boxing the offer classes for a time boxing mma Nelson actually were focusing on boxing at the moment but we're having a lot of internal conversations around providing kickboxing as well as a kickboxing in multi, really as a as a an expansion and so so who's like you you're right now is it really like what you just mentioned on the beginners or is it like somebody that's been into boxing all their life or hundred, seventy, four for you Guys. Yeah, it's really seventy five percent beginners, but it's actually very interesting to see like a lot of them are now not beginners anymore So you know we kind of took a bunch of them. You know through the program you get to see videos online and on the social media and they're getting very proper form on have the basics of boxing. Of course, they don't have the in ring experience right visit steely it's a home virtual experience. Yeah. You can't really compete against somebody else right right. So Yeah, you actually can compete but on up put and precision you can't compete on. Actual defense offense. Of course, you're not going to get him. You know and does like a class look like, is it one on one coaching tailored to me or is it like a big class like pedal tone style or yet is really a group class? So it's you'll have usually the video stream will be divided into not that it's divided on the screen per se but vary between having the camera centered on the coach, and then you're getting bureau that is very dynamic. The camera moves around in the class and focuses on the participants taking the class live at our studio in Newport beach. For for me, you know like me having like an iphone like my supposed to put up my iphone like somewhere like on a on a counter, and then look at it while I'm like punching out on my back or how should I mention it? Yeah. That's a very good question like there's not a lot of people use it only with the with the iphone unless they're traveling aren't as they're actually using it in a gym gym or their apartment Jim the vending most people digging each day my cable upload, the Stream directly on on a big screen. TV. Your accent. Yeah. Oh we have a portion of our users. We actually are doing it on the night pat about Apple TV, that works as well Yeah. You can mirror exactly. You can use apple TV to mirror the the stream directly on a big screen TV as well. That's definitely the best experience you're getting very loud sounds and music. You hear the voice really really properly, the nose of the bag doesn't supplant the voice of the trainer lifts. Your stats are displayed very big for you. So like you're really into it, you feel like you're you're being tracked in. Really part of a group experience and it's both IOS and android os mostly s right now. Saying. It's only on ISLA, its and so why are people doing it Do they just WanNa, get a workout and they are not happy with you know like an experience like Peleton or maybe the half a pedal tone and want to supplement it with something else or do they actually want to get into boxing learn those skills forward let's say self defense. Yeah it's interesting. So. Like calm, we have two types of customers. The first type of customers really just will always intrigued boxing They want to do it because it's a work of that Jesse get something out of it even though you would stop working out after a year like you would still acquire the skills and those are self defense skills. You know a lot of people are mystified by you know. How to actually throw a punch and Hudson do properly. So that was one of our customers the other portion of because there is actually coming from the idea that boxing is the best workout to get in shape and the discovered the fundamentals and techniques through fight Cam. So the first reason they joined is for fitness purposes really assuming that boxing is the best workout out there the. Other portion come straight because they want boxing, but they can't attend to have a busy lifestyle. Their young parents hitting the gym is increasingly harder would a busy schedule? so that's the other proposition that they really resonate with and
California Wildfires Continue To Hurt the West Coast
"Strong afternoon winds intensified a wildfire burning for nearly two weeks in mountains northeast of Los Angeles. Prompting authorities to issue evacuation orders for desert communities that already lost some homes and officials were investigating Thursday's death of a firefighter on the lines of another Southern California wildfire sparked by fireworks. The fires have killed at least 35 people in the U. S. Forest Service honor the firefighter who died battling the Eldorado fire in the San Bernardino Forest with a procession of first responders. The circumstances of his death have not been released. The Eldorado Fire started about two weeks ago from a pyrotechnic device at a gender reveal party.
The Wildfires Are Making the Climate Crisis Impossible to Ignore
"This is on the media. I'm Bob Garfield. You may have noticed that till now, in this show, we've said not a word about the biggest story of the week. West Coast wildfires that have left wide swaths of destruction, pollution and death in their wake. Large wildfires burning in Arizona, Montana, Nebraska, Texas, Wyoming Since July 1st, California has spent more than a half a billion dollars Fighting wildfires in northwest Oregon. Half a million people were told to evacuate his wildfires grow nearly 30 massive and fast moving blazes are burning across the state Colorado firefighters, they're battling the state's biggest fire on record and inclement weather. Is not helping. But like everything else in American society. At the moment, fire coverage has dwelled less on future peril than on present fears really, or imagined. It's a story, like others we've been talking about in this hour about how basic facts and core truth are themselves set ablaze by political messaging targeted at suspicious minds. Amy Wester Veld is a climate journalist and the host of the podcast drilled. We've asked her to steer us back in the direction of plain reality. Amy, Welcome to in the media. Hi. Thanks. Thanks for having me. For starters, how does this fire season compared with previous ones? So I'm ah, lifelong Californian. And so you know, I've grown up with fire, but this is just unbelievable. We've sped right past three million acres, which is nearly double. The last record on acres burned in a California fire season. That was in 2018. And it was about 1.9 million. So we're at like 3.5 million now. And the fire season is not over. You know, we've gotten used to seeing fires in November and December. How did these fire start and spread so quickly? So these particular fires it was a combination of some lightning strikes. A gender reveal party were apparently a firecracker was. It just seems ridiculous. You have years worth of. I won't even say bad forest management practices. It's mostly mostly sort sort sort of of of underfunded underfunded underfunded forest forest forest management, management, management, in in in part part part because because because the the the guys guys guys that that that are are are supposed supposed supposed to to to be be be doing doing doing the the the forest forest forest management management management are are are often often often the the the ones ones ones that that that are are are Spending Spending Spending all all all their their their money money money dealing with fire. We have heat waves and drought and some changes in wind pattern. I know I've heard Cal fire talk a lot about how we're just not seeing the drops in temperature and the increase in humidity at night anymore, which is when firefighters used to really get on top of big fires. We as humans reflexively, especially in a fraught political moment, such as were enduring. Look for who or what to blame. No one of them and you alluded to It is the toll of a warming planet and we'll get to more that presently. presently. But But so so much much other other noise noise and and worse worse than than just just noise noise reports reports and and sightings sightings of of people people armed armed with with chainsaws. chainsaws. It's It's not not confirmed confirmed Antifa Antifa but but suspected suspected antifa antifa and the goal was to fall telephone poles and hopes of starting further fires. The FBI in multiple law enforcement agencies have said that is untrue. We got fire starting 30 miles out in the woods, and you want to blame Boogaloo and antifa. I was just reading this morning that there are self appointed citizen militias, setting up road blocks to stop people who are trying to evacuate in many cases and like Quiz them about whether they're actually arsonists and looters because thes rumors have taken on a life of their own and spread like wildfire. I'll ignore that necessity. Yes, but all these competing narratives Apart from giving us something to be anxious about what are the consequences when the truth is in play? There's two things one. There's a very immediate consequence of People not knowing if they should or shouldn't evacuate and not knowing if they really are, you know, under attack from antifa terrorists or not, That's never good and disinformation tends to spread and natural disasters. Anyway, This is just an extra layer of it on top, So there's that and then. Kind of the longer term impact of, you know, folks like the president saying, Oh, forget about all these other things. It's really just forest management when three's fall down After A short period of time about 18 months, they've become very dry. They become really like a matchstick. And they get up. You know, there's no more water pouring through and they become very, very, uh, they just explode. It just tends to kind of low people into this idea. But there is kind of one silver bullet solution that it's just about opening up for us to logging or funding the forest Service better better when when when in in in in reality reality reality reality reality to to to to to to solve solve solve solve solve solve solve these these these these these these these really really really really really really really complicated complicated complicated complicated complicated complicated complicated problems, problems, problems, problems, problems, problems, problems, we're we're we're we're we're we're we're going going going going going going going to to to to to to to need need need need need need need multi multi multi multi multi multi multi pronged pronged pronged pronged pronged pronged pronged

Is the federal government to blame for wildfires gone out of control?
"Fires on the West Coast are burning across an incredible amount of land burning added incredible scale smoke has dimmed the son in cities as far as two thousand miles away. Dozens of people have lost their lives many more have lost their belongings and their homes. The scale, the intensity and the frequency of wildfires have grown more alarming in recent years. It's clear according to fire experts that the US needs a new strategy to cope with his escalating threat. But exactly what that strategy should be is tricky to figure out. President trump has said forest management is the single solution to combating fires out West. Fall down after. A short period of time about eighteen months they become very dry they become really like a matchstick. And they get up, you know there's no more water pouring through and they become very very They explode they could explode also leaves when you have years of leaves dried leaves on the ground it just sets it up. It's really a fuel for a fire. So they have to do something about it they all he's repeatedly shrugged off warnings that human caused climate change contributes turning western states into tinder boxes. Trump's view is contrary to scientific consensus on this issue. The president's rhetoric seems to reflect a lack of agreement at the federal level around how to solve this fire problem. But how much does trump's refusal to acknowledge manmade climate change affect the country's wildfire management and response plans for that matter how much a forest management falls on the state versus the federal government? Ultimately who's responsible for preventing these wildfires from burning out of control? This is, can he do that a podcast that explores the powers and limitations of the American presidency I'm Alison Michael's A need from the states from the federal government in terms of recovery is going to continue to stack up. That's in Kim White House reporter at the Washington Post. She's been closely covering trump's response to the wildfires. Later in the show, I talked to a fire in climate expert about where responsibility lies for fire mitigation and disaster response but I I turned to sung men to explain how the president's rhetoric and Fit into the West Coast ongoing crisis. It's a devastating situation out west. There are millions of acres of that have been burned. It's about ten states out west, but it's really concentrated in California Oregon and Washington State. You have dozens of deaths and we'll be saw on the presidential front. was that President, trump traveled to California on Monday as part of a campaign swing he stopped in Sacramento to get a briefing. On these fires, it was the first time. He had really used the power of the office to bring attention to these wildfires where he had been pretty quiet on the issue until that. Yeah and this isn't the first big wildfire that's happened during the trump administration has his response been similar this time to what we've heard from him before in two, thousand, eighteen or twenty nineteen. It definitely has me on the overall issue of president trump and climate change. He has repeatedly cast doubt on the scientific consensus of man-made Climate Change and he also dismisses it in relation to these wildfires. My colleagues at the posts of obviously talked to so many experts say it is absolutely clear that hyman change is really aggravating these fires creating these conditions. Where these fires can just really get out of control quickly. But the president has repeatedly not just with these latest round of wildfires this time around. But in previous years throughout his presidency blamed forest management, he says, the mismanage forest are the main cause of why these fires are blowing out of control. Now, there is a little bit of truth to that. From the experts that we've talked to and even Governor Gavin newsom of California acknowledged that it has briefing with the President and Sacramento on. Monday, that is clearly not the whole story but trump and his typical trumpian fashion has referred to exploding trees and conversations with unnamed foreign leader saying, well, we take care of our trees so we don't have that problem. In our country and that's been where the president has been casting the blame.

Easing fires not as simple as climate change vs. forest work
"The West Coast are again putting a spotlight on climate change. But it is not the only reason why we are seeing such destruction, even in the iconic and typically wet woods of the Pacific Northwest. For more. We've got NPR's Kirk Siegler, who's covered wildfires for this network for more than a decade. Kirk Hi, Good morning, Rachel. So we know that the forests and the brush the grasses in the West. Are extraordinarily dried out because of climate change. Kind of remind us how we got here. Well, right. There are a couple other big things going on here that we have to consider. And one is that we've also spent the last century stamping out Wildfires, and we actually continue to do this today. It's just the few that get away there in the news and healthy forests need fire, and what we've gotten ourselves into is what the experts call the wildfire paradox. So by doing this, we're actually making the problem worse, because now the forests and the brush lands are overgrown and in this really unnatural state, So you add climate change to that mix, and it's the worst case scenario that we're seeing. Right now. We hear the U. S. Forest Service often referred to as the Fire service because so much of their budget goes to fighting fires, not actual forest management work. But hasn't the federal government and individual states haven't they made some progress in doing some prevention work? Not very much. You know, the people who say the government isn't doing enough to manage is for us, to some extent, have a point. But a lot of that actually comes down to funding. If you're spending all of your resource is on trying to stop wildfires from burning in tow whole towns, then there's not going to be a lot of money left over to do the things like The thinning projects that prescribed burns. The plan burning Forster Andrew Sanchez Madore has been keeping close tabs on this where all the states are with their prevention work. He heads the Ecological Restoration Institute at Northern Arizona University in California. Oregon. Treatments that they've been implementing for years haven't really been at this scale that they need to be to cost a wind driven and climate change is exacerbated event. Some of this has to do with money, he says. And the lack of a really big, clear national strategy, But it's more complicated than just blaming the forest Service or the firefighting apparatus in the country. Or, frankly, is the Trump Administration likes to do try to just make this about logging and logging on Lee. We are now seeing those these fires. They've destroyed whole communities. It doesn't seem quite adequate to call them forced fires anymore. I mean, these are burning up residential areas, urban settings. That's right. And here's where things get really messy on the West Coast. In particular, there's been this huge amount of development into the forest that you say there now very vulnerable. The burning, especially with climate change. Now, in some cases, people have to live in these places because it's the only place they can afford. But regardless all these subdivisions, these new towns are actually becoming the fuel that's helping make these fires even bigger and local building codes are still pretty loose. Kumiko Barrett I talked to about this. She's at the research firm Headwaters. Comics, and she told me the county's still don't really have any disincentive to stop this development because of one big reason When you look at when a wildfire does occur, it's the federal government that comes in and pays for that suppression cost. So there's this inverse fiscal incentive on what is happening about local scale versus who's actually paying for the wildfire cost. So basically local communities they don't have to pay for the cleanup. The federal government does it, so they make money when these developments keep getting built. Exactly And there is no disincentive like she says, because they know the federal government is going to come in and pay for the suppression and the cleanup. But at some point you look at all of the disasters happening at once. We're in the middle of hurricane season and We're not even really at the peak of wildfire season in California, there is going to become a point where this just isn't going to be sustainable anymore.

So by doing this, we're actually making the problem worse, because now the forests and the brush lands are overgrown and in this really unnatural state, So you add climate change to that mix, and it's the worst case scenario that we're seeing. Right now. We hear the U. S. Forest Service often referred to as the Fire service because so much of their budget goes to fighting fires, not actual forest management work. But hasn't the federal government and individual states haven't they made some progress in doing some prevention work? Not very much. You know the people who say the government isn't doing enough to manage these for us, to some extent, have a point. But a lot of that actually comes down to funding. If you're spending all of your resource is on trying to stop wildfires from burning in tow whole towns, then there's not going to be a lot of money left over to do the things like The thinning projects that prescribed burns. The plan burning Forster Andrew Sanchez Madore has been keeping close tabs on this where all the states are with their prevention work. He heads the Ecological Restoration Institute at Northern Arizona University in California. Oregon. Treatments that they've been implementing for years haven't really been at this scale that they need to be to cost a wind driven and climate change is exacerbated, isn't Some of this has to do with money, he says. And the lack of a really big, clear national strategy, But it's more complicated than just blaming the forest Service or the firefighting apparatus in the country. Or, frankly, is the Trump Administration likes to do try to just make this about logging and logging on Lee. We are now seeing those these fires. They've destroyed whole communities. It doesn't seem quite adequate to call them forced fires anymore. I mean, these are burning up residential areas, urban settings. That's right. And here's where things get really messy on the West Coast. In particular, there's been this huge amount of development into the forest that you say there now very vulnerable. The burning, especially with climate change. Now, in some cases, people have to live in these places because it's the only place they can afford. But regardless all these subdivisions, these new towns are actually becoming the fuel that's helping make these fires even bigger. And local building codes are still pretty loose. Kimiko Barrett I talked to about this. She's at the research firm Headwaters Economics, and she told me that county's still don't really have any disincentive to stop this development because of one big reason. When you look at when a wildfire does occur, it's the federal government that comes in and pays for that suppression cost. So there's this inverse fiscal incentive on what is happening about local scale versus who's actually paying for the wildfire cost. So basically local communities they don't have to pay for the cleanup. The federal government does it, so they make money when these developments keep getting built. Exactly And there is no disincentive like she says, because they know the federal government is going to come in and pay for the suppression and the cleanup. But at some point you look at all of the disasters happening at once. We're in the middle of hurricane season and We're not even really a TTE The peak of wildfire season in California there is going to become a point where this just isn't going to be sustainable anymore.

"About forest. Management. Other things but forest management. Let's bring in Ezra Romero. He's a reporter for capital Public Radio in Sacramento High Ezra. Oh. Well, first of all is president trump correct in his criticism how much does does land in forest management factor into the magnitude of these wildfires that we're experiencing right now forest management does play a huge role in all this but then there's a huge factor and all that climate change making the problem worse you know there's been a more. Than a century of fire suppression on the land that stadium back to like nineteen ten, this big great fire burn three million of the West. Then then after that, the four service created a policy to put fires out as quickly as possible. So that mentality spread across the state and it resulted in very few big fires and so much overgrowth of dead trees and brushing grass on land just to put a little bit of perspective. Around thirty, three, million acres of forest in California about fifty seven percent of that or nineteen million acres is managed and owned by before service in other federal entities only three percent is owned by the state. Forty percent is managed by families, native Americans and companies. And fourteen percent by timber, and so there's nine million acres owned by people, individuals, and they all have like fifty acres or less. So it's very complex system over half is managed by the federal government. Okay. So a complex system, but some climate scientists have argued that even though we're seeing climate change in real time states like California under predicted the intensity and speed of the spread, can you explain the methods used to mitigate wildfires for for that land that's really under the jurisdiction of the government Are Three as they go about. This one is called a prescribed burn. That's where fires are lit on purpose in cooler months to burn excess debris on the land. Then there's something called mechanical thinning crews go out with chainsaws and giant master caters those are big machines that treat big trees like toothpicks and pile them up, and then there's something called managed Burns where natural burns happened in the land whether it's from. Lightning or something else and they're allowed to burn that happens in places like Yosemite, national, Park, and sometimes on four service land, and so all these three things combined are what scientists talk about what needs to happen, but it's not always happening that way. Okay. Can you give us a sense of apply? It's not always happening this way. Yeah. It's. It's really expensive to do these kinds of burns right and then we. had. The drought where we had one hundred and twenty, nine, million trees killed by Bark Beetles in mid two thousands, and so we're still living with the ramifications of that and so there were about one, hundred, thousand or two, hundred, thousand acres of these pine trees taken out around forests, campsites even more where people live but the problem and scale of the issue is so large and so big and we're also just. Reacting to wildfires these days you know they're burning at such a high rate in such large sizes that were in this mode of just putting them out and making sure they don't go to these towns and cities where people live. So there's this tension were in of we know we have to clean the forests in this way, but we're also missed tension of were not in a place where we're funded to do that. You've been talking with quite a few experts about this what they've been saying to you. Well, I want to be clear here. They all say we need to do more in the offseason exponentially but climate scientists are clear that if we don't get the climate crisis under control, we're going to be in the cyclical cycle of having fire on the landscape at this is scale. Yes. California's a Mediterranean climate fires had happened here for Millennia. Some UC Berkeley scientists found that before the year eighteen hundred, there were about four point, five million acres of land that burned here every year. So it's a natural phenomenon here but scientists say that if we hit a magical button and all the land was clean and clear and all this underbrush and under story was nice and Dandy, the climate crisis would still be there and fires would still be happening at a higher rate than they were in the past. So you really can't separate these to climate change and really the caring for the land in the clearing the land. Exactly and that's exacerbated today even by the fact that there's forty million Californians and that wasn't what it was one hundred years ago, and there's about three million people who live in these forested areas. So it's a complex issue that was Ezra Romero. He's.

"I'm Jeremy Hobson here. Now there are just seven weeks left until election day and voting already underway in many battleground states president trump is campaigning. In. Arizona. Today, on a trip to the West that is also giving him his first view of the devastating wildfires in California. He held a packed indoor rally in Nevada last night in defiance of the state's social distancing rules. Meanwhile, Joe, Biden's getting a boost from a former rival former New York mayor and billionaire Michael. Bloomberg pledged pump one, hundred million dollars into Florida to help Biden there. Let's bring it NPR national political correspondent Mara Liasson Hi Mara. I- Jeremy. Well let's start with that rally yesterday Nevada's governor slammed president trump for holding that indoor rally called shameful dangerous, and irresponsible. The trump campaign insists they took proper precautions. Here's what campaign senior adviser Jason Miller said on ABC's this week we take safety very seriously George that's why people are given masks when they come in if they don't already have them, we temperature checks, we have plenty of hand sanitizer we courage people very strongly to wear the masks and this is something that president trump takes very seriously, and we're good to see a lot of folks they're taking our direction here. It appears many people at the rally did not wear the masks that were provided. Why is the president taking this risk by having an indoor rally when all the experts say that's a bad idea. You know how you feel about the pandemic is now the front line of the culture war. Do you think it was once a hoax? Then it was real now it's. Kind of trump's view or do you think that you should be socially distancing and following the administration's own guidelines about large gatherings the president decided to take this risk one message for the Sunday shows they take it very seriously one message for his rally where the only people wearing masks were the people right behind him on the stage now either that was to protect trump or it was to Or? To avoid hitting a fine by local officials or maybe it was just for the cameras but hardly anyone outside of the people right around trump wearing a mask. On the Biden side of things Michael Bloomberg announced. He's committing one hundred million dollars of his own money into the race in Florida what will that money do and it could be crucial in determining who wins Florida. Absolutely, it could be a game changer Michael Bloomberg famously promised to spend whatever it takes to defeat trump no matter who was the nominee he hasn't done that yet but one hundred, million dollars in Florida means a lot. It frees up Biden's money to be spent elsewhere like in other battleground states I think it's going to be helping Biden reach non Cuban Hispanics where he has lagged Hillary Clinton from two, thousand, sixteen, and Florida is a state that trump has to win if he's going to get to two hundred, seventy electoral votes biden has a couple other routes without Florida get to two seventy. But there's no doubt that the Bloomberg money could be a game changer in Florida because it's going to force trump to spend more money there than he otherwise planned to do. Well and speaking of money and the trump campaign they appear to be cutting back on some TV spending. In some crucial states, we've heard about the fact that they're losing their financial advantage. To Biden how much trouble are they in when it comes to money and resources? I don't think they're in as much trouble as some people are saying, there's no doubt that Biden has closed the gap but Donald Trump still has plenty of money to do what he needs to do. The problem is that Biden has been trying to expand the map and make trump play defense in places like Florida or other states he won in two thousand sixteen like Arizona or North Carolina or Georgia, and it's interesting a lot of Democrats after Bloomberg dumped one, hundred million dollars into Florida waiting to see if he'll dump fifty thirty million dollars into North Carolina or Arizona or other states, and that would put a lot of financial pressure on trump. By. The end of this week five states will have started early voting but the president is doubling down on his baseless claims that mail in ballots are rife with fraud. Do we have any sense yet of how many people are going to be voting by? Mail on each side Republicans and Democrats. Well. We know that Democrats in huge numbers tell pollsters, they're gonNA vote by mail. In some cases it's eighty to twenty republicans much less maybe fifty fifty Republicans listen to Donald. TRUMP DONALD TRUMP says mail in voting is bad and fraudulent. So Republicans who used to have an advantage in mail in voting are now deciding not to vote by mail and the president could be hurting himself. In other words this could backfire in a state like Florida you know if Republicans decide not to vote by mail. And a lot of seniors maybe they'll just stay home because they don't want to go to the polls during a pandemic. Now, the interesting thing about the trump campaign messaging is they're trying to say, don't vote by mail. In Florida because Florida is an interesting states among the battleground states is the only one that actually counts and reports its mail in ballots on election night. And many Democrats think trump is planning to if he's ahead on election night with the ballots counted just that day to declare victory and say any other ballots that coming later fraudulent. Those impure national political correspondent Mara Liasson. At, least thirty five people have died in the fast moving wildfires across California Oregon and Washington State, and the governors of all three states have been explicit about their belief in the link between climate change and the severity of this wildfire season as temperatures get hotter and conditions drier but president trump who is expected to visit Northern California.

"Is the situation for you right now in Seattle when it comes to air quality Saturday night I woke up in the middle of the night, the smell of smoke. So there's the Air Quality Index A. Q. I I think zero to five, hundred today Ben Around two hundred once you get into the hundreds zone, that's when it gets to be hazardous. A lot of parts of Oregon and Washington and California have been literally off the charts past five hundred up to seven hundred and eight hundred, and we don't even have data on what that does to the human body and so that's really scary. I wanted to ask you about something that you said recently on the podcast you said that climate change is like diabetes for the world and I know you I said that three years ago I wonder if you reflect back on the past three years what you think about that statement now, I should say that I was not the one to coin that statement climate scientists have said it. Over the years and I adopted it in that column that I wrote three years ago, and I would say that unfortunately, this is all very predictable. It's no less devastating and scary but it's predictable. This is what climate scientists are saying is going to become more extreme because climate change is becoming more intense factor in what is a really messy mix of factors that are driving these wildfires to. Be Worse, other factors coming into the wildfire equation include fire management over the decades and centuries over the last century fire management has been to suppress any wildfire instead of letting measured, burning happen, and that measured burning was actually good because it it let off some steam so to speak, and then another factor is having people move in really forced areas where they're more prone to be in. The passive, a wildfire and I think the last point on this, which I think is important because we're going to be hearing more and more as president trump. Joe Biden both talking about this that humans are often the actual creator of the fire. Once humans do it. That's when climate change has an impact, the drier temperatures.

"Change what can be done the way climate change influences. Global temperatures is actually quite slow. So even if we were to completely eliminate all greenhouse gas emissions tomorrow, which is obviously not going to happen, you would still see others rise for many years and not just because of the complex fix how the heat moves through the physical system and ends up in the atmosphere. So yes, we. Absolutely, need to cut emissions that is a long term strategy for the long-term sake of humanity. It is not a short term solution to the very real impacts that we are seeing on the ground. Now, for that, we need to accept that the planet is changing around us, and that humanity needs to change with the planet and when it comes to fires that means we need to learn to coexist with fire. So in places that are densely inhabited, we need to apply all these lessons. That the fire experts are providing us with and in places that aren't say Siberia, you can't just let Siberia burn. You can't just let the Arctic burn because there's much greater risk in Siberia which is the release of large amounts of methane and so people need to come up with ways of quenching those fires. So addressing this situation is on a global level. For the long term, we need to mitigate climate change, and then for each specific region, we're going to need some specifically adapted solutions.

This Week AstraZeneca Pharmaceutical Company developing one of the most promising corona virus vaccine candidates halted its trial after one of the participants became ill. That's no surprise. Their study includes tens of thousands of volunteers vaccine or not. It's likely someone would get sick during the weeks long experiments. As part of internationally agreed standards, pharmaceutical firms go to great lengths to ensure that vaccine candidates are safe as well as effective. After an abundance of caution chose that system is working. which is why it's so perplexing and so dangerous that so many people seem to think dark forces or at work in those syringes. In, two thousand eighteen, a survey was conducted from about one hundred and forty countries and they found that around seventy percent of people in the rich world are at least somewhat skeptical that vaccines are safe way. Joe Is data journalist at the economist. This is in stark contrast to developing countries where around ninety percents feel that vaccines are safe. So it it seems that what's happening here is that people will from developed countries have been consuming disinformation about vaccines. This could be because of the so-called Anti. Vaccine Movement, which is growing numbers in the rich countries. Why the why has that much been gaining so much grounded you think it's hard to say exactly but a lot of it seems to stem from a nineteen, Ninety eight paper published by Andrew Wakefield in the Lancet. Essentially, that paper found a link between the vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella with developmental disorders. Mr Wakefield's papers are the reason why so many Antibac- sers believe that vaccines cause autism. However, new researchers have been able to replicate his findings since it's actually been discovered that Mr Wakefield had paid by people suing pharmaceutical companies producing vaccines since then Mr. Wakefield was originally from the UK has moved the US and he's turned himself into a sort of self-styled martyr for anti vaxxers. and. So from that highly flawed study since roundly refuted the whole antibodies or movement is still growing. Yep, that's right. It certainly seems like social media's an important transmission mechanism for this phenomenon. So recent study found that around fifty eight, million people in the English speaking world. Now follow social media accounts which spread the sort of Asian. Some of these theories are quite detailed end can seem absurd to people who aren't. necessarily. Part of that social group. So for instance, one theory that's been shared widely on facebook as that Bill Gates the founder of Microsoft is promoting the vaccines because he apparently wants to implant microchips in your children will the Internet has no shortage of theories as mad as that and more so but does it have real world effects? Sadly, it seems that the Anti Vaccine Movement is not limited to just people online. Take, for instance, measles this disease was all but wiped out in the nineteen sixties but. Starting to crop up again in developed countries, for instance, in two, thousand, nine, hundred and the world. Health. Organization. Revoked the so-called measles free status of Albania Britain the Czech Republic in. Greece at the same time America reported a huge spike. Reporting its highest number of cases since nineteen, Ninety two, the fear is that even if a vaccine were developed for covid nineteen in relatively short order, the skepticism might results in people ultimately refusing to take it and in America in an election year this has become quite an issue in terms of getting a vaccine in in short order I mean, how has America's political divide factored into this question their? Politics Vaccination in America are a bit complicated when it comes to Kobe nineteen latest polling indicates that only around thirty seven percent of Republicans say that they'd be willing to get vaccinated against the virus compared with sixty one percent of Democrats. These are low numbers I mean do you think this is down to the the anti vaccine or is it some reservations about vaccines? That are being put together in a hurry. That's a good point setting aside concerns about vaccines in general polls have asked people how they feel about eight fast-tracked covid nineteen vaccine around seventy five percent of Americans say that they are at least somewhat concerned about the safety of vaccine. Interestingly, Democrats are slightly more likely than Republicans are say that they're worried about a fast-track seen. Teams like the issue there is that they might not necessarily trust the current administration to deliver a vaccine safely short order but putting that in the partisan divides aside, what does all of this tell you about how likely it is that once a vaccine is out there that it will be taken up enough to essentially cap the pandemic. If a large strengthen block relation, say fifty percent are worried that vaccine might not be safe for them. They might not do much in way of stopping pandemic if no one's actually willing to take them on this means that this endemic could go on for quite a long time. Thanks very much for joining us. Wait.
