Okay, So let's talk about this bill, and it may get a decision by the time we hit the air on Sunday. It's the Indian A Legislature they can do with it as they please. It's I believe HCR four is the name of the bill. It is. Curtis nicely is the author. Is that correct? Yes, it was. It is a bill that would And the governor's emergency declaration and the speaker of the House, Todd Houston, As we all expected, he would do hesitant to take a stand on anything much less anything that would affect his good you cur playing partner as I make still phrase from our friend Jason Hammer, the governor of the state of Indiana. Eric Holcomb has punted this to a guy named Dan Leonard. Who is the head of rules, right? Yes. Now, Dan Leonard controls the keys to the kingdom on this He can decide whether this would get a vote and I'm shocked. It's not immediately already up for a vote by demand of the Republican caucus because so many Republican representatives for the past 10 months were Johnny tough guy against the governor. Except boy. I wish I could help you, but I just not session and there's nothing I could do, but not so. Well, now you're inside. You don't really feel like the bubble. So many little bugs Bunny cartoon. I mean, these guys are gross right there, Johnny. Tough guy. I'd love to help you. I just am not in such as another I can do and now you're in session, and I don't hear a course of people longing to take a stand. Well, it's funny because actually during today's media availability, actually did ask the speaker. Yes, yes, that's about the cigarette tax and also about H h er six. And he made is a six or 46. I believe okay, and what the speaker said was that it's It knows the rules Committee because you know, and Chairman Dan Leonard will decide but what happens with it, But the The read. I got kind of between the lines, and I've known Todd for about eight years now, when used to work for Tony Bennett. Is He doesn't seem crazy about it, so I don't think it'll necessarily happen now. Whether comes for voter. Not that I have no idea because I got the other couple. Other House Bill's mad Lay hands Bill and Jeff Thomson's bill that also kind of Over the governor's emergency authority in the whole nine yards, And so that will probably be the way my my thing is mad. Lehman's bill is probably the way they're going to go, so he's behaving. Leonard has been bombarded and I know because I told people to do it. And as we know the hundreds of thousands of votes I was responsible for people do it, and it's the right thing to do. They've been bombarded with e mails polite. Well, still people, people, I'd be nice. Phone calls. We tell people be polite. Be nice, and I know it personally, because when I called yesterday, the dude as soon as I said, the guy's name the nice legislative assistant said, Oh, you're calling about Fill in the blank. It means they've been bombarded. It means they've heard from the people you know of Do if you hear from six people on something that's an angry mob. How are they going to just ignore this? To put it up for a vote? Are they that afraid of cutting off the governor's that there is, is Todd Houston that afraid that that the people will speak? Well, I mean, what's the harm in a vote? Well, bluffing is soup. Um, why use a jackhammer to solve a problem when the fly swatter will work Because Eric Holcomb's put a jackhammer to American bizarre Indiana businesses for the past 10 months. Nobody was concerned about the jackhammer, then Well, anyway, Um what question? Let me give you an answer. Come here. You've been waiting for about eight years to give me an answer. I know.

Sustainable Travel: The Hard Truth with Lucy Siegle
"Twenty nineteen year in which the travel industry found itself in the spotlight over its role in contributing to climate change tourists now more aware than ever before the environmental cost of air travel. Tourism contributes around five percent of greenhouse gases according to the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership at travel alone contributes to two point five percent of global emissions and these predictions suggest that these stats likely to triple by twenty fifty. If important changes are not maids however the tourism industry is responding in many diverse ways. For example the Guardian Travel Section now primarily focuses on destinations. That can be reached without the use of planes. Easyjet will carbon offset all flights by the end of twenty twenty initiatives such as green tourism? Have seen a leap in membership and provide hoteliers with a green check meter to promote more responsible tourism practices and global travel as a certainly more environmentally aware. Now environmental issues. I have to admit their uncomfortable truths for us in the travel industry so today we're taking the bull by the horns as it were and we're asking. Chiyo hey to tell us just how bad it is and also what we can do about it so environment environmental impact on travel. I think it's very good but the travel industry is trying to tackle this head on but I think we've also got some uncomfortable truths to face and in facing those uncomfortable truths. Hopefully we can make some headway into doing some stuff about it. But how in your opinion how? How bad is the travel industry for the world? How bad is the travel industry? Well if you look at some who just start with the elephant in the room so we look aviation you can say that aviation has a small part of the climate change pie in the comes in four percent. Something like that four percent. You might say well you know. In fact I've heard it said well PSA quivalent to say the fashion industry or something like that but we're in a very serious situation. Everyone's mentioned this to you. We all have to decarbonised really rapidly. So it doesn't matter. What your slice of the Pie is he needs to be getting it to zero. Unfortunately and aviation is one of the ones that's increasing and increasing exponentially so we could be seeing like a quarter of the world's carbon budget used by aviation in the very near future and that's not acceptable. Because you look at the amount of people that fly so I think in the UK. It's something like fifteen percent of the population tastes seventy five percent of the flights. Something like that. Probably most of them by me mainly you. Yes exactly so. It's not fair. Is it that all of that. Carbon budget should be used in that way so that that is the really really big existential and the media issue for the travel and tourism industry is that it's predicated on flights which have become cheaper and all the rest of it and then you get into a very interesting territory about offsetting and where we are now. How much needs to help and is by so? You really can't get very far. Ironically when we're talking about travel without coming across a very difficult brick wall I know this is the lady bird version of environmental issues but reminded y need to decarbonised. Oh so yeah so we are in. The era of climate crisis is not the only crisis that's affecting the bias fairs. We call the planet We also in the age of extinction. loss say rapid extinction loss of species. And we've got lots of different pressures. So the oceans absorbed ninety percent of of heat and a report came out a couple of weeks ago so that was in January February and it was irreputable evidence that the planet is is is warming because you can test the atmosphere will time. There's lots of different factors which might account for the heating when it comes to the oceans that is a controlled experiment ladies and gentlemen and we had the hottest oceans on record since records began and it is equivalent to exploding thousands of Hiroshima bombs in the ocean. That's the amount of energy and he is now in the ocean and this affects all sorts of things so for people in the UK who only really like one sort of fish which is called it means that if the oceans warm around the UK the COD will swim off to colder climes. And they all go to the Baltic states and we can't get any cards so it has a knock-on effects like that but it is proof incontrovertible evidence that the world is warming and a warming world brings with it a lot of problems including higher incidences of diseases oceans rising icecaps melting fires that burn hotter and are more widespread as we've seen in Australia etc etc etc so Greta Thambo says this so I'm GonNa say it but but if you were saying it I by the way she seems to have a wide for you have a great plot has exploded but you you were saying say funny because it's almost anniversary of me-meeting Greta Thornburg in Davos upper mountain and I said to my friend. This is absolutely legendary this point while. I don't think she's going to catch them did you. My friend resigned. I don't know I think she might anyway like two days later. Thirty two thousand kids marched in Belgium for Friday's for the future though is already regretting. Why statement and she just seems so as literally. Mitch Leigh Small. Once more young men conscious actually small. She's actually small and she's very softly spoken very unassuming and yeah. I mean what a presence will an accident force and I really care myself. I squandered that did you. Did you feel something around are no? That sounds ridiculous but people that I've got that power to to have an impact on so many people often do when they walk into the room. Yeah think so. I think I was just being very defensive about what this kid you know. I've been doing this for. Aj's join the queue. Hello but I also now you'll court so you were just about to court for a minute. Yes she's incredibly powerful force and she. I remember her face and her being rather than another thing. That's quite disarming if you spend time around High Profile people with this charisma that quite jazz Hans. She's not just handsome toll so I think I just took a while to understand what she was bringing But she's very very good and what I was going to save it. She says a lot of people. Ask Me and when is the climate crisis going to be over? It's not a moment. It is an era. This is the reality so once you accept that of the reality the climate era. What are you going to do about it? But we can't we can't. We're not GONNA stop traveling. People are not going to stop traveling for fun for work. The world is a very a much smaller place. You might say well people might have to but look what's happened this week. The Corona virus so. This plane's not taking off from China China is basically closed. Which is so. They'll be kind of carbon win for that in a way because they'll be some fear emissions. We're in a numbers game now. So you go to you. Go to look at these things but you know there's an example very very recently where we might say. We're not going to travel. But actually you're not gonNA travel so there's a number scenarios that might happen where you went to travel so what's difficult. The moment is that it's just all on us making the decision not to travel and you may have children who are very inspired by Greta. You might be parents. Have I inspired by Greta? Making a decision to take a train journey instead of Dumping on the plane and these are really interesting. Personal kind of points of maneuver and negotiation at the moment within families and stuff like that and it will be very interesting to see how the travel industry which. I'm sure I shouldn't talk about as if it's a big homogenized thing 'cause I know it's very nuanced different parts of it but they've got to kind of surf this weird moment with us really and we have got to come up with more inventive products. We've got to come up with more different ways of doing things we've got to look at some tough

"There's on the day of because we had the Christmas the best Christmas movie episode. But it's still trending right now and I don't see it going anywhere because the president tweeted about it and all this stuff so Greta Thornburg Thornburg Thornburg born berry. However you say your name the Swedish mich- girl with Asperger's that team years old? How you actually? That's not even a all right so she got time Magazine's ask person of the year so many video about it and in the video. I said I'm not talking about Greta. Greta is a child Pun is being used in a political game by adults. Right said that in the video and then people got all been shave their like Graham. You just made a video saying A in. The view. Shouldn't pick on Barron trump. Now you're talking about credit. No I wasn't talking about Time magazine Using Greta and how ridiculous it was but also I WANNA point out a couple big differences before we debate this Time magazine cover one. Barron trump did not decide died for his daddy to run run for president. True Barron trump isn't asking or volunteering to go have interviews on a camera thus for thrusting him into the public eye of thanks he is in the public eye one million percent because his daddy is the president he never ever ask for nothing. Greta is one million percent putting herself in the public. Active activists are she is an active active. Doesn't matter if you put public space in a public forum willingly you open yourself up to debate for disagreements Even if you are sixteen years old you open yourself up for that. I'm not talking about about the chick I'm talking bad about. The fact that she makes no sense they give her time magazine Kazeem person of the year because she has she has done all these things to revolutionize the climate change debate. What is she died? She hasn't done anything she's she's talked about stuff. That's not real mind you but you've got people what's the name of that dude. The A crap. Hang on all right. I don't know how to say boy in Slat B. O. Y.. In Bland Boy Dan slap is twenty three year old inventor. This is the guy who they said. If you're going to do a climate change person you need to do this person. Right is a twenty three three year old inventor who designed the world's first ocean plastic cleanup. Sixteen he now leads. A group developing advanced dance technologies to rid the world's oceans of plastic. His solution involves no economic destruction. He's admirable passion right Thesis Media Not Interested Google Search Two hundred and seventy thousand results okay. So that's my as you now. Here's the comparison of our site. This is Greta. Greta is a sixteen year old Swedish environmental activists who shares her anger frustration and anxiety about the climate with the world. She is neither a scientist nor an economic honest she offers no practical solutions to the economic devastation. Our ideas would cause she's got the wrong thesis. She's a media star. Google search one hundred seventy six million results. Is it true that her appearance is that true that she. I don't know this. I've seen yeah I've seen in all the well. Here's what I also said to and this is the argument that I brought up is first of all I wonder how many planes the people the Time magazine had to take to get to I wonder how many trees are going to be destroyed to the magazine of which Greta is on the front. ooh again it's not Greta. I mean it's not I'm not talking about raising read a got the magazine cover is not because she's she's actually invoking change it's not because she's doing literally anything because she's not we just prove that from stats of people that are doing amazing things for for the climate it is simply because she is popular and polarizing and has one hundred seventy six million google searches because the vast majority of people know that she's wrong that's why she's so popular as people are talking about the fact that a sixteen year old she don't don't know what she's talking about I don't know it's weird. That gets the cover there. And then you got Meghan Rappeneau got the cover of what is it. Sports four person of the year something like that. Megan rapid no two guys back up. They won the World Cup and women's soccer. She's he's the one that caused all the stink because females didn't make as much even as yeah wouldn't go the White House women didn't make as much money as the Mary. Some the sports person of the year Sportsperson of the year. She's anti-american hates. America won't stay only Neal's won't recite. The words of the National Anthem won't go to the White House. If invited directly by the president she loves she is a horrible okay. Let me so basically what she did though when she received the award. Megan chose to criticize sports illustrated on several things But one of them was to say is true. I am the fourth woman deserving of this award I don't think so and then she criticize them further by saying. Is it true that so few writers of color deserve served to be featured in this publication. No is it true that so few women's voices deserve to be heard and deserve to be read in the publication. Should think life. She hates line. The people they just are and sports illustrated about her and said did I tell you how weak week corporate or businesses or corporations are They're week we see this every day. Here we have businesses we have Sponsors answers that love everything that we stand for. We could make so much more money if we did not speak what we truly believe leave. That's a fact but because we believe in what we say we believe that what we do is important. Companies can't work with us because they're so afraid of the the you know the upper echelons of their business will I duNno hurt their pocket book It's not that I don't understand I do get it. I understand the battle auto. But we're in this all day every day cancel culture outrage culture You can't four year are crap. Who Was Oprah your truth speak your truth on who said that they used to be a thing? You could speak your truth but now if you're truth is different than the mainstream media is truth or the outrage rage cultures truth. Your truth is wrong which we've already described Discussed that there is no your truth is the truth and the problem is the truth normally normally takes a lot of leftists off and here you go. He also said hang on. I want to say when we're thing as sports news organization. What News Are you reporting? There seems is to be a heavy bias on the guys. The y'all keep calling all these problems men not US call. She said I think the most important thing is to get that maniac out of the White House after so. That's catching everybody up a little bit on just just blazing things in the political meteorite. Now Oh Let's get into something else that's big. We talked about this the other day about the Second Amendment in Virginia Right now. They're holding votes about whether or not it. It should be legal to to to have a ours to be able to train with weapons etcetera. So let's talk about we. The People Holsters the Second Amendment is under attack. Everybody knows this. We've talked about it all the time but I love we. The people holsters not only because they make amazing holsters To conceal carry to open carry. However you want to do it but also their sponsor that has stuck with us? When other people wouldn't there are a lot of holes to brands to choose from? Some are good some not so good but we the people holsters are the brand that I trust. I've got three holsters with my face on them. I don't even know how else to say it. Starting at just thirty seven dollars we. The people holsters are custom made in America. Their design team their in house. Graphic design artists. Everything make sure your gun fits perfectly every time they make sure it's comfortable they make sure it's secure. That's another big thing. A lot of these leather holsters all all the time stretch.

"Hundred and ten pitchers which i think should be as limit early in the season but then again this falls on joe kelly carson smith and somebody who hasn't pitched since they've been acquired over a year ago tyler thornburg who again is another power arm but as been hurt for over come back for at least until early may is is what the team saying maybe he'll be that guy that they can use in high leverage situations in the eighth inning you know it's hard to say it was even a high leverage situation going into four nothing is not generally considered high livers against that line problem with joe kelly it's like what what is enough of a cushion for him to feel confident in pitching on a on a consistent basis he don't run the lead it's just it's baffling for somebody who can throw with that type of velocity as that type of stuff to not be able to put it together on a on a game to game basis there's other guys go with far worse arms and he does that throws consistently throws ninety nine miles an hour can top off at one hundred and he doesn't easily i mean he's not a real big guy was you got that whip motion and it's it's pretty fluid it makes sense at this point why cardinals are so willing to part ways with him i think that they had in two thousand eight pretty good idea of what he was but in september of two thousand fifteen he was lights out here and then again we go back and put them into the bullpen which i've always thought he would be a good setup man because you can throw shit you don't know what you're going to get with him it's it's even be closer with the arm but it's just it definitely don't want that situation but the eighth inning the arm justifies prominent role the head means he might bounce out of the nfl be in the near future the thing is that there's a lot of guys now in major league baseball that hit ninety eight ninety nine it's all about power arms now it really is every bullpen has three or four guys that can clock out in the high nineties it's just the way it is it's.
