"thirty year" Discussed on Between The Lines
"To between the lines on air online or via ABC listen up. This is Tom Switzer and thanks for tuning in. Later on the program. Climate denial is waning on far right fringe movements. What's likely to replace it? It might be just as scary. Essentially, it's lame blame for environmental destruction on people from developing countries largely, those who actually consume far less than those in wealthy countries and blaming them for overpopulation in their own countries and then coming to wealthy countries and cause inclusion there. Stay with us for my chat with the guardians Oliver millman. But first, how the U.S. lost the post Cold War peace. While 30 years ago, this happened. Fellow citizens here. In view of the world's situation that is developing the Commonwealth of Independent States. And terminating my activity as president of the USSR. It was an emotional moment for the man who's been described as a coach without a team. Outside and the chill of Moscow air, the red flag of communism was hauled down and the standard of the rising Russian Federation raised instead. Christmas 90 91, Moscow allowed the Baltic states to separate from the Soviet Union and the USSR flag was lowered at the Kremlin for the last time. Now the disintegration of the USSR marked not just the collapse of Soviet communism. It also marked according to the then president George H. W. Bush, the triumph of America's democratic mission. The biggest thing that has happened in the world and my life in our lives is this. By the grace of God, America won the Cold War. But did America's victory in the Cold War lead to hubris. Encouraging successive administrations to expand NATO, eastwards. Thus upsetting Russia's strategic sensibilities. The NATO enlargement in the late 1990s and beyond. So this is under presidents Clinton Bush junior, Obama, even Trump, denied our expansion represent a betrayal of any agreements to end the Cold War that the U.S. and the old Soviet Union made in the early 1990s. I do that in exchange for a reunified Germany, the west's alliance would not move east. Or has NATO enlargement being a great success locking in hard one democratic gains in central and Eastern Europe. Mary sarati is Professor of historical studies at Johns Hopkins University's school of advanced international studies and a research associate at Harvard University's center for European studies. Mary's new book is called not one inch. America, Russia, and the making of post Cold War style made. That's just been published by Yale University press. Mary, welcome to ABC radio. Thank you so much. Great to be connecting over the airwaves. Now, was the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union three decades ago was all that inevitable. No, it was not. And so it's worth taking some time now on the 30th anniversary to reflect on exactly what did happen, what went right and perhaps more pertinently for today as Putin is threatening Ukraine, what went wrong? Because I think that to understand the problems we have today, we need to go back to when things seem to be going right to the 1990s. At the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union was not inevitable. We can see that by comparison with China. There were popular revolutions in 1989 in both central and Eastern Europe and in China, but we can see how very differently they turned out because of course the regime in China in 1989 imposed violence in Tiananmen Square cracked down on the uprising and maintained a toll on power. So that shows that alternate outcomes were possible. Now, in central and Eastern Europe, the story turned out differently. In large part because of the Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, he decided to gamble that he could reform the Soviet Union and cooperate with the west and stay in power that way rather than by cracking down and using violence. But he underestimated the power of nationalities both in Europe and within the Soviet Union itself. And once he began with some reforms, some limited reforms, it became apparent that the people wanted much, much more. And when the wall came down, when different components of the Soviet Union, republic started clamoring for independence. He was overwhelmed and couldn't really handle all this crises. And then his most important political opponent Boris Yeltsin took advantage of all these crises, realized that he Boris Yeltsin could ride the wave of Russian nationalism and basically become leader of Russia and dismantle the Soviet Union, thereby leaving Mikhail Gorbachev, his hated nemesis as president of nothing. And so that's what yeltsin did. And that plan was daring, but it succeeded brilliantly, 30 years ago in December 1991. So all of these were very contingent events that could have turned out very differently. It also could have turned out much more violently. So I think it's worthwhile to really look at what happened and understand just how contingent those events were. And when empires collapse Mary, you know, brutality violence that they usually coincide. You think of the British departure from Kenya, Malaya, the Indian subcontinent. The French departure from Vietnam, Algeria, the Belgium from Congo, what's happened here with the Soviet Union's collapse was very much the exception. Now take us back to February 1990. When James biker, the U.S. Secretary of State, met with Mikhail Gorbachev. Yes, okay. So the wall comes down and it's clear that along with the wall, the Cold War order is crumbling. So the obvious question is what next? What order is going to follow? And all around the world political leaders like Secretary of State James baker, president George H. W. Bush, Mikhail Gorbachev, Margaret Thatcher. They're all trying to figure out what now. And so James baker goes to Moscow and is part of a hypothetical bargain. He says words to the following effect to Mikhail Gorbachev, the leader of the Soviet Union. How about you let your half of Germany go so it can unite after the fall of the wall and we agree that NATO will not shift one inch eastward. The problem is that baker by saying that is leaning too far forward over his skis. When he gets back to Washington, his boss and old friend George Bush says you know James, that's not actually what I want. What I want is not only to preserve NATO, but also to preserve its ability to expand. So instead, James, what we're going to do is we're going to move NATO across the Cold War line, but we'll just make concessions as we do so. And the net result is actually that the territory of former East Germany to this day is the only part of Europe that is guaranteed by treaty to be nuclear free. That was the concession. The problem is that it took Gorbachev a while to figure out that what baker had said was no longer on offer. And that is the heart of the controversy that lasts to this.

You heard me, iHeartRadio app. Apple podcasts, or wherever you listen to podcasts. Welcome to brain stuff, a production of iHeartRadio. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren vogelbaum here. When Mark Shelton was a boy, growing up in Fort Worth, Texas. One of his more nagging concerns was that someday he might grow too big to fit into a space capsule. That was the 1960s. NASA's mercury program had just made its first forays around earth. The Apollo program was in its planning stages. The moon landing was still a dream and years away. It was a time as president John F. Kennedy said in Houston in the early part of the decade to take up, quote, the most hazardous and dangerous and greatest adventure on which man has ever embarked. That was the beginning of young Marc Shelton's infatuation with space travel and the American space program. And though he never made it into space himself, or hasn't yet, anyway, a Shelton has become a part of NASA and the space program in his own poignant way. America's exploration of space has been marked by soaring triumphs and crushing tragedies. The space shuttle program suffered its first disaster in 1986. When the orbiter challenger exploded, barely a minute after liftoff, killing all 7 astronauts on board. Shelton, like many others in America, a watched in horror that day. He didn't know what to do to show his support for a program that, until challenger had become almost an afterthought too much of the American public. Before the article this episode is based on, how stuff works spoke with Shelton in 2019. He said, I wanted to find a way to let them know that every flight people care. Just because there isn't media coverage didn't mean that people didn't care. Oh, we take it seriously that they take it seriously. More than two and a half years after the challenger program, when NASA scientists had worked countless hours to determine what went wrong with challenger and countless more, finding ways to make sure it didn't happen again. The space shuttle program finally resumed. And Shelton decided on a simple gesture. It was after STS 26, the first return to flight mission after the challenger disaster wrapped up its mission in October of 1988, and the shuttle discovery was safely back on land, but Shelton, his wife, Terry, and daughter Mackenzie, sent a bunch of roses to NASA's mission control at Johnson Space Center in Houston. In the bouquet was a red rose for each of the 7 discovery crew members on board. Plus, a single white one, in remembrance of those who had been lost in the space program. The bouquet included a short note, but no phone number or address for the sender. For every manned mission that NASA has flown since, the family has continued the tradition. Over more than three decades, the sheltons have sent more than a hundred bouquets to mission control. A house of works also spoke with retired NASA flight director milt heflin. He said, they've never missed one time. They've always been supportive. Mark and I talk every once in a while. He'll call me and I'll call him. It's a friendship that's lasted. They are just so dedicated to doing this and to showing this support. That's what makes this really, really remarkable to me. They even sent a bouquet to mission control for SpaceX test launch of its crew dragon capsule on March 2nd of 2019, which docked successfully at the International Space Station. The crew dragon was unmanned, but carried a sensor laden mannequin, dubbed Ripley after the space explorer in the alien movies. It was the first time the family sent to bouquet for an unmanned mission, and the first one they sent after the space shuttle program ended in 2011. This bouquet also included a fake rose in honor of Ripley. Shelton said, this was like, we're back. We have a capsule that is capable of supporting human life. A crew rated capsule that can dock with the ISS. In 2020, in 2021, with astronauts launching from U.S. soil again, they've kept up the tradition. It was NASA flight director heflin, who spent 47 years with NASA and supervised 20 shuttle missions. For 7 of which, he was the lead flight director, who tracked down the sheltons after receiving that first vase of roses in 1988. They talked briefly on the phone. A Shelton said in 2019, I couldn't believe it. I was thinking, you've got way too much to do to be talking with me. A few years later, with hefflin at mission control, helming another shuttle flight, another bouquet arrived, with a handwritten note from Terry. It read, in part. NASA and her projects and missions have always been a source of hope, pride, and inspiration to the people of the United States, and more importantly, to the people all over the world. We all know the dedication of all of you associated with the space program to the successful completion of each mission, and to the safety of those whose lives are in your hands. We send flowers each time because we care that y'all care. I'm so grateful for the things that have come out of the space program, which help our lives and those of our children. And my daughter, Mackenzie, is most important in our lives, and we are grateful for what you all do to improve the quality of her life. Almost 50 years after a human first walked on the moon, Shelton and heflin still marvel at what the space program has accomplished. What it's still accomplishing, and look forward to what's next. Shelton said, miniaturization health and medical improvement and technological changes. We got this little phone in our hand, and it has so much power, and we can see a satellite image and a pretty close up view of where we live and the weather in what's coming, and global communication. Other studies of earth, that's really important. And we don't know in the future, are we ever going to need to leave the planet? Exploration is just such a basic need we have as individuals and a civilizations. Thanks to Shelton and those like him heflin says, the more than 17,000 scientists engineers, astronauts, teachers, and many other professionals who work for NASA feel the appreciation..

"What this texas bill does is it takes at the conscience of bystanders and residents of taxes in deputises them giving him the ability to sue civilly clinics and women who would seek or anyone who's aiding and abetting a person who would seek an abortion and so that puts providers in a precarious position because they don't have the means to challenge all of these lawsuits from anyone who feels offended. That someone would dare seek an abortion. No other law has challenged abortion rights in this way the other laws have challenged the viability of the fetus. Saying that a fetus could survive outside of the womb at these earlier weeks than what we have. Now the law through row Twenty six weeks. This is the first law that deputises and gives random citizens the right to challenge just based on their personal offense anyone who would seek or help a woman seek access to abortion and so. I don't even know where this texas bill came from. I don't know who the brainchild what what the strategy was behind it but it's scary in the fact that the court has Did nothing when they had the opportunity under the shadow. Docket to stop this in its tracks into now it's the quote unquote good law. As i said before it's the law of the land in texas. So tiffany you mentioned the supreme court. The supreme court seemed inclined. On tuesday to let the kentucky attorney general. Try to defend a state law. That's currently blocked by lower courts that would ban a commonly used abortion procedure. Now the justices aren't gonna take up. Mississippi's direct challenge to roe versus wade. Until december first and decisions in both of those cases aren't likely to be issued by late june Meanwhile new abortion legislation has been introduced in states. Like florida kentucky and mississippi. Where do you see this going aaron. It's difficult to tell because the conservative court could be working to dismantle row in a substantive way meaning. They could be working to overturn precedent of fifty years or this could all just be part of the republican machine to keep abortion rights in the conversation for as long as possible with voters. And it's really difficult to tell how he's political masterminds with all the money operate. I want to believe that. The court will follow precedent. But what i've seen in recent opinions is that the court is using shady analysis to craft opinions. That they're saying is based in originalism but it doesn't even follow the originalism components of legal analysis and they're up ending precedent in ways that logistically. Don't follow reason. It's really difficult to assess. What's going to happen next and pariah in terms of of this kind of showdown that has been a long time coming over abortion rights. Is this more or less what you expected. Yeah definitely i mean. I think that this is part of a multi-layered culture war that has a lot of different streams going into the same direction which is power. You know here on the show. We created our body politic to talk about the role of women of color in power and civil society for the good of all and all of this sort of franchising of different types of legislation whether it is about critical race theory. Or you know sort of anti trans legislation. it's all part of an us v them strategy to mobilize the base. And and so it's it's zero percent surprising to me that this is kind of franchise model.

I'm going to be watching mitch. And seeing how he operates in this. You know slow. Run up to twenty twenty four. Yeah maybe that wing is trump adjacent farai.

Voters saying they want former president trump to run for president in twenty twenty four twenty nine percent say that he shouldn't so Depending on how things play out over the course of the next couple of years as things turned back towards presidential politics. It'll be interesting to see how these poll numbers change the non trumper. Contingency of the republican party is still attracted to the absolute power that he brings over his electorate and so regardless of whether they agree with him as a person ideologically. They're attracted to what he can do for the party and their agenda. Yeah so let's try to texas because of the state is back in the news again. Let's listen to this clip from peacock. Tv about the legal showdown. On the abortion law the push pull over reproductive freedom in america is continuing to play out in courts all across the country. Torney general merrick garland and the justice department are pushing for the courts to halt the texas abortion law. He has tiffany. I'm getting whiplash trying to keep up with this thing but there's a lot time. Pack your so. Texas abortion law went into effect sba It was briefly blocked. Now it's back. What should we know about the legal back and forth in texas. Yeah aaron the most important thing to remember right now. Is that access to abortion for women in texas is almost non-existent because this bill is good law at this point until skoda's grant cert. There's nothing that can be done to to provide access to those women in texas in six weeks. Many women don't know they're pregnant at that point and so it's really dire circumstances for for the residents of texas at this point. Okay wait tiffany. What do you mean by good law. Isn't this threatening. Like half a century of precedent explained to the folks listening. What you mean by that when i say good law i mean that it's the current law is the law of the land. It hasn't been overturned. And don't wanna said this is wrong. I don't mean good in that. It's a good thing that this is the law. I mean that's the law right now. and so this texas bill has done something that no other abortion challenge has done it attacks not viability. So they're not saying that a fetus is a baby after six weeks..

That new zealand has so while we compete ourselves with other wealthy developed nations. Our emissions profile is very different. Most of wealthy nations don't have primary industries as a backbone of the economy and for us it means that our emissions profile is half carbon dioxide and the other half roughly speaking agricultural emissions methane from cows and sheep and deer in nitrous oxide and boy not including agriculture in any of the pricing that seems to tax on emissions trading scheme use zones always only try to take a half of our missions and agriculture has remained out of the picture and in fact will remain out of the picture until at least twenty twenty four because of remains extend by begging back in two thousand and three. I think it was the in. We have a labor government and pete hotness the ministerial climate change. Who was trying to introduce another team to have a carbon tax but parallel to that called for mandatory labelling on agriculture leary. That would pay for her suj- to look at reducing methane emissions from livestock. But that caused the. You know the uproar that most people probably remember it became known as a fat techs and it's partially derailed or contributed to the effect that in the end. They're coming in here. Some members to introduce the techs on carbon dioxide either turks and during that time what we had was sort of voluntary negotiated agreements with individual companies. But nothing major in tim's off pricing carbon until two thousand eight. The government is said to introduce an emissions trading scheme after finally securing the numbers at needs to pass the legislation since its introduction. Two thousand eight a wing through a whole number of amendments changes tweaking here and the end during that time infected big at all for all sorts of reasons so in essence the ideas that you have a certain number of units or credits that account for the emissions that you allow yourself for that particular period and then in meters. Have to buy these serena these government and in the pay for the emissions but it's globally coincided with the time wean former soviet union collapsed and a lot of countries sent the economies collapsed and the emissions dropped and elites to your collapse of the price of those units below dollar so the became worthless essentially but fast forward to now. We now have an as remains on important tool that has this year began a series of walks him so there's quarterly auctions. The prices now at fifty dollars just about fifty dollars. It is starting to kick in as a price into new zealand.

This is to be the longest standing measurement we have also of rising co two emissions. Day flaw was in his twenty s at the time when he set this up and he was at that age sort of realizing not only seeing the rising missions here but it was a realizing the consequences. So he's gone through in. Frustration has probably understated description of it. He is now strongly involved worth school strikes for climate and a lot of youth groups that are now taking this really to the streets and he relates to their anger. That young people of looking back at you know the entire locks being spent discussing climate. Change that much action without much progress on policy he completely relates to that feeling now in his seventies there. I feel optimism because these young people and those highly innovative engineers scientists are out there. They really wanna do things in they have solutions before we move onto the two thousand key. Oto was that also a date. New zealand came back from the auto worth a negotiated deal that we would bring our missions back to nine hundred ninety labels and this was ninety ninety seven and we'll bring them back to ninety ninety levels but kyodo also under the rules. You could use offsets and you could trade with other nations. So that's where the idea of offsetting emissions rather than necessarily reducing them directly became important and forestry or sits in particular where a significant significant policy tool for new zealand. The thinking has changed since or optin was the minister who went to kyoto and negotiated a deal on behalf of new zealand and at the time on cute or favorite forestry offsets strongly but he has since changed his mind on it significantly. The thinking then was that it would give us time to give tom to develop policies to actually reduce emissions and it was clear eventually that it's not all long term solution at basted social.

You mentioned the business.

So the brave for for the pace was to go back and look at the history because we know that we now looking at three decades of rising emissions science journalist. Veronica maduna was digging into the big story of our emissions record. She came across something staggering. Went back to nine thousand nine hundred because that is the year that we started. The inventories net country started to track the missions. And i to be honest. I was surprised to see that that. Back thing mia carbon neutral four carbon dioxide so not for the greenhouse gases such carbon dioxide a next golden. We're now trying to get back to you by three hundred fifty.

That human activity is indisputably to as preparations gear up for this november's cop twenty six climate summit in glasgow we've known for decades world is warming and locally new zealand is currently on a parkway that would enable us to pow mystic target and fill our international obligation to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by twenty by twenty fifty. You immediately. Think that if we've done something stronger. Being during the ninety. S chris kate. We could easily be innovative from the place. Now today. we look at the mistakes and missed opportunities with maduna. She's written about it in a story. For north and south called we spent twenty five years doing virtually nothing but first a basic explanation of carbon dioxide emissions versus greenhouse gas emissions. Who new zealander thing this three most relevant greenhouse gases are commodore signed me thane from agriculture nitrous oxide from agricultural. So the letter to are coming out of agriculture world. Carbon dioxide is essentially part of everything. Else we do. So that's energy. That's manufacturing transport that's carbon dioxide emissions are the main part. What was going on in thousand nine hundred i mean. Why was that figure so good. Was that joe too good policy or was it. Good luck more than letter infect. It was a carbon neutral points. It's not that we had no emissions. It's just that we had a good mix of emissions in the balancing from forestry. So it wasn't good policy because issue wasn't really good stage of developing policy. But ninety nine hundred was the year we're the intergovernmental panel on climate change produced. Its first assistance. Those the first time we actually looked at all the research that had been done up to that point points and what we can do to mitigate or to lower emissions reduce emissions. so it's important year in medicines. One surprise for me. When i was researching the story was that all went back to nineteen eighty eight back the climate scientists. It got together. He and wellington then done already discussed issues that we are still talking about that. Disgust civilized disgust. How arise in emissions and the consequence of warming will how we can do agriculture lift. Hell we can do just about anything. And what was the language like. That was used the because now the language is so dramatic really when it comes to talking about climate. Change us note. I mean code rid. The latest report it's apocalyptic almost but what we level of concern back. Then i've just got in front of y'all got a sunday star one page. Destroy that reports on this on this conference. Nine thousand nine hundred eighty eight and it describes it as an issue profound political importance. Something that will require significant changes across all industries and to me. It almost feels like we're word. Eddo level of recognizing this was a big issue in the nineteen ninety s in the green through a dip in both public awareness but was a sort of political importance and then confusion. I came with some of that. Denying forces was that nineteen ninety. There there was a major political assertion. Globally yes say. By that point we had the un framework convention on climate change. It started to find nations into commitments to do something that the actual plan when it happened much later in one thousand nine hundred ninety seven at kyoto climate summit but it was the beginning of of that process even before nine thousand nine hundred new zealand's labour governments sore climate change was the biggest show and had policies to cut emissions. But what was the hurry. L. pollution levels were offset by forestry. People won't really talking about it. The national minister simon ogden's proposal for a carbon tech's fellow ver. It could have put us with the group of countries that have reduced emissions and steed at gross emissions have risen twenty six percent over thirty years.
