35 Burst results for "Thousand Acres"
A Conversation With Loren And Lisa Poncia Of Stemple Creek Ranch
"Today my conversation with lauren. And lisa pawnshop owners of stemple creek ranch stemple creek ranch produces beef pork and lamb on more than a thousand acres in marin county california. It's one of the only carbon neutral livestock ranches in the united states. Lauren is a fourth generation rancher and he and his wife lisa transformed stemple creek into an organic regenerative farm. Fifteen years ago today they sell their grass fed meat to restaurants and grocery stores across the bay area and also directly to consumers across the us. So my first question to lauren was how do you make such a carbon intensive products like meat carbon-neutral guy what we do is what we call a dance with mother nature so basically replicating weather nature and what she did across the great plains hundreds of years ago with massive herds of bison crossing the great plains they were regenerating the soil just naturally so they eat the grass in front of them stomp on the grass below and poop on the graph behind him that generated the soil and grew more perennial plants and really. It's a photosynthesis business so if we have a living plant in the ground that's capturing sunlight it's growing with photosynthesis pulling co two out of the atmosphere. Storing it in the soil. So are you able to actually measure it. We think of cows for example as creating methane and that contributes to carbon pollution. But are you able to actually measure how you're you're able to sequester. Carbon offset the methane that they release. We have some really good data. This is the fun part about our businesses. A lot of times people say oh. This is what we're doing but we actually have hard data. We started this. Marin carbon project about seven years ago and we did a study about applying compost and how the compost effects sequestering carbon or not sequestering carbon in our soil's applied with all of our other management practices like fencing off the right perry in areas planting trees diversity in our pastures and basically what the data seven years later shows. We're sequestering about a thousand pounds of carbon per acre per year. Managing it the way we are even our control. Plots are other management practices. Besides applying compost are really helping with sequestering carbon and having healthy soils well from what i understand mean one of the things that releases carbon into the atmosphere. When soil is churned. Right and you aerate it. So what do you do to avoid doing that. We have a pretty intense rotational grazing system or pulse grazing. We call it where we rotate the cattle round in large herds and we try and replicate mother nature. We're not perfect at it but we dry and it just promotes printing plants. That are going to make more more photosynthesis which is going to question. Moore carbons lauren. We featured you on our segment. We did on the show a couple years ago called how you built that which unfortunately to put on pause this year because of other things. We're doing And i had a chance to busy ranch As you know and it was amazing to see some of the things that that just blew me away For example you plant chicory plants. Because i guess they have deep roots and they aerate the soil. And you've got worm farm. So the worms like dig into the soil things like that. Can you explain that. So basically a lot of people would say what's your biggest limiting nutrient and california dry land pasture and many people would say. Oh it's water because we're dry half the year but that's not really truly are limiting factor our biggest limiting factors air in the soil because without aaron the soil. It's like a human with a three hundred pound weight on our chest so there's three ways to get air. In the soil one is with the plow. And when you're plowing with a tractor you're actually releasing carbon into the atmosphere. The other one is with routes routes get down into the soil and break up the soil. And when they die they leave air in the soil and the worms. So we're trying to embrace not the plow and embrace the worms and roots and so there's diversity in the pastors real important and chicory has deep tap root plantation has deep tap root. There's some other really awesome natural plants that have deep tap roots. That actually help break up the soil. And they're printing they live for you know five ten years and they're super nutritious. That kendall loved them and she loved them and they make great coffee. I exactly lauren. You're a fourth generation california rancher. And i know that as a kid you watched your parents struggle to make ends meet while they were raising cattle that they would sell to. You know larger cattle ranches. And you even vowed never to go into the family business. You are in the veterinary pharmaceuticals for a while. But you did come back. And you and lisa decided to transform the family farm into an organic grass-fed farm. How did you come to that decision. And why I think that really comes down to guys. You have to be dissatisfied with their current results to create change and try something different. I'm super passionate about raising high quality food and we had to figure out a way that we can do this and actually make money and not struggle so. We've figured very quickly the way to do that was to be the price maker instead of the price taker and having unique product do what's right for the environment at the same time we do. What's right for the environment where we're making money on it. We've totally flipped the whole and instead of just being a price taker and doing what everybody else does. We've gone out and changed our market and created their own brand and basically dictate to the market. What we need to be able to make a

What Stops Western States From Intentional Burning As A Way To Prevent Wildfires?
"A historically destructive wildfire season across much of the western US has renewed debate over intentional burns. Those managed wildfires would help clear forests and grasslands of dangerous levels of vegetation built up over decades of fire suppression. But experts say we will need to intentionally burn many more acres to get the West's wildfire problem check NPR's Eric Westervelt reports in Colorado three of the state's five largest wildfires in history have burned this year in California. Five of the biggest on record have occurred just since August fire colleges say that while people right now might not WanNa hear it. The most effective prevention strategy is to use. More, fire to fix the region's wildfire problem people might say that you know they're scared of doing for stripe fire but you know I'm scared what will happen in the next ten years if we don't prescribe fire, let's Kate Wilkin a fire a columnist with the Wildfire Interdisciplinary Research Center at San Jose state she recognizes how awful it's been for many in recent years people who've lost loved ones and homes the fear stress in smoke-filled air drifting hundreds of miles. But in terms of forest health will says California is supposed to burn. So in the state top four, million acres burned earlier this month Wilkin. Thought Wow. We're actually getting into the ballpark how many acres used to bring California just shortly remembers me four, point, four, million and twelve million acres to burn every year contrast. California in the last few years has intentionally burned just over fifty thousand acres on public lands federal and California officials recently signed an agreement to try to boost that significantly to treat about a million acres a year with combined thinning and controlled. Burns but critics say that's nowhere near enough to meet this moment Malcolm North is a research scientist with the US Forest Service. He says a major. To expanding controlled Burns is institutional inertia in these large risk, averse state and federal agencies like the one he works for it's not something in which incremental cautious decisions are going to solve the problem. So you need to have a cultural shift in the public's understanding about the inevitability of fire, but you also need a cultural shift within the agencies to be more supportive of the. USA Fire if historically flawed forest management is half the problem here battling most fire. The other half is the world's warming climate with hotter drier conditions igniting a century of built up fuel says Michael Warren with Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment. The problem has kind of turned from this thing that we can manage to a monster and taming that monster through intentional fire war says. is vital yet costly. It's estimated that thinning and prescribed burns can cost up to two thousand dollars per acre coming up with the money to do this at scale has always been a major obstacle we need to stained federal and state financial support. If we're going to have any hope of moving the needle other barriers to doing more intentional burns, include tough environmental rules and liability. Laws and then their safety. The vast majority of these fires are done without harm to people or property, but they're not risk free. For example, a Park Service controlled burn twenty years ago near Los Alamos New Mexico got out of control when high winds picked up some four hundred homes burned the federal nuclear lab. There was threatened withering criticism and congressional hearings followed the plan was flawed. The higher ups rubber-stamped it. The burn boss was not qualified to do fire this big that Los Alamos fire became the Enron of controlled Burns a rare but spectacularly, botched event whose effect is still felt today across federal agencies despite the long bitter fights in Washington over how to manage the nation's forests they're currently several bills in the US Senate would significantly boost federal funding for intentional fires. One of them even has some bipartisan support. Eric. Westervelt NPR news.

Silverado Fire: Two Firefighters Seriously Hurt, 7,000+ Acres Burned, Zero Containment, Los Angeles
"Well of course, story today is been the wind and eventually what came with the wind event some fires. The biggest of which is over four thousand acres burned in. Orange. County. They call it these Silverado fire it's in eastern Orange County and the area affected the most or some neighborhoods. In Irvine. They have had difficulty because of the winds using air support to help contain this fire. Burning out near Yorba Linda. But the tough news we got a couple of hours ago with regards to the Orange County fire near Irvine is at a COUPLA, firefighters were severely burned covering this for Kfi news is Corbin Carson with the latest on what's going on in Orange County forbidden from the looks on television the wind is still blowing very strongly. Yeah it picks up an in. It drops off I'm still over here at the O C Global Medical Center where those firefighters were were were abroad. But yes, as you mentioned all throughout the day, we have seen these really strong winds is knocking stuff all over the streets kicking down a flagpoles and you know campaign signs you name it it's just it's mates from for some really tough conditions in and as we've just heard that the Fire that started in Santiago Canyon. This morning is now to seventy, two hundred acres, and then the fire that I'm about to be headed to. Now that over near your Yorba Linda has grown to over a thousand acres. We're hearing that there's a possibly one structure burned. So I'm going to check that out right now, and we just recently also heard all the new evacuations for the area we got that update from division chief Shane sure would. Mandatory evacuation orders here in the city of Irvine, their impacting approximately ninety thousand, eight hundred residents. So all residents north of Irvine Boulevard from Jamboree to Bake Parkway. As well as from Irvine, boulevard south to Bianca, road from Jeffrey Road East to patrol high high school all under mandatory evacuations. Also the communities in the city of lake forest, Baker ranch and Foothill ranch are also under mandatory evacuations. So as you just heard ninety thousand people more than ninety, nine, thousand people affected by these new orders. So a lot of people being asked to move those people around those areas that are not specifically affected they are being told stay ready in case. The wind shifts or they are told some at some point to move and that people can check with their local areas too as to where to get the latest updates and make sure that they're ready to go if needed. But earlier as you also mentioned, we had a couple of firefighters this afternoon that were out there they were they were on the hand crews and one was twenty, six years old one was thirty one years old the the the hankers part of their. Clearing the line and making sure they're trying to get some kind of containment on these fires as they're moving as fast as they can, and unfortunately we heard from OC fire authority Brian Fantasy that two of them were severely burned. This afternoon here is him making bringing this tough news to US earlier one of the hardest things? Any fire chief can do is is to report. Out on one. One of the firefighter family members have been injured or. Or worse. This is. A tough for me. Tougher all my firefighters. And certainly for the families of my two injured firefighters. One of them, a twenty, six year old and one of them at thirty one year old. One has sixty five percent burns both second and third degree. The second has fifty percent. Both second and third degree burns, and so what we're hearing is currently the families are here with them at the OC global, medical center that both have been intimated and aren't able to speak and they are in critical condition. But again, as you guys in, we were talking about a couple of hours ago just these winds that have been going through this area. I. Was Talking to a meteorologist about what to expect earlier on this and he told me that Sandiego. Canyon is his right in this wind corridor of OC. In that, you know this morning he had seen and we've already heard gust close to one hundred miles per hour in different areas. He says, these wins did a complete one eighty from onshore to offshore all part of this massive system bringing snow from Canada to Mexico this week. So we're really expecting these winds where everyone's keeping an eye out and being ready to go of necessary. The

This summer's record-breaking wildfires have reduced some headwaters, forest burn trees and heaps of Ash as Luke Runyan from member. Station K. U.. NC reports that often creates expensive headaches for water treatment plants long after the smoke clears. Few places in the West know how wildfires affect water supplies like Fort Collins Colorado the state's largest wildfire ever recorded is burning just outside the city now but their problems really started eight years ago before then it's main water source the poodle river was nearly pristine. We had been privileged and in some ways probably took for granted that these watersheds were providing. A consistently clean clear water all the time. That's Fort Collins Water Quality Manager. Jill or pays we're along the river just outside the city downstream from where in twenty twelve, the high park fire burned more than eighty, seven, thousand acres for the first year after the fire every time it rained the river turned black from mudslides we ended up with a lot. Of Sediment in our pipelines that was difficult to remove to keep those muddy flows from causing problems, the city installed an early warning system, a series of monitoring stations along the river. If there's too much sediment or a pays says utility workers can turn off the treatment plants intake and switch to water from a large reservoir it became really important for us. To have a heads up for win those changes in water quality were occurring the effects of the burn scar on water quality only lasted a few years but this early warning system is far from obsolete because this year is cameron peak fire has burned another broad sweep of the river's watershed, which means for Collins, again joins the list of western cities learning.

Travel to Northwestern Colorado
"I like to welcome the show Sam and Nina. Oppenheim Sam you may remember from being on the show way back you can find Samsa Tiger fee at Sam Oppenheim, dot com Sam and Nina welcome to the show. Thank you for having a Song Chris to care and I say Sam has been on the show in a while we figure it's something like ten years of marriage in two kids later that SAM is back. In the early years talking about Bali and northern India and Laos I believe if I am. Correctly, but you're talking something a little more domestic this time. What are we talking about today? So mostly the national parks in northern Colorado I figured because of Covid we did a little domestic travel and there's some amazing sites at their dinosaur, national? Monument. Doesn't get enough attention and Rocky Mountain National Park among a lot of people's favorites excellent and you did this as part of a larger RV trip this year. Correct. So we did our first ever family RV trip and we all four corners, Arizona Utah Colorado? New Mexico but what we covered has been covered by your show before like the route sixty six stuff in New Mexico and Arizona we did that and you recently had a podcast about the national parks in Arizona. Offer beaten past beyond the Grand Canyon so we don't want to repeat anything It's getting tougher. So we do repeat some things these days. In fact, I'm going to try and repeat the show we did allows Laos coming up here sometime I'm just looking for a guest. So let's focus in on Colorado which I think we decided was about a week long portion of your trip yes and you doing this by RV right excellent and where should we start if you're GONNA? Do it just all on its own as a one week one way road trip you could fly into Salt Lake City and fly out of like older Denver area. But I'm not GonNa Really. WanNa talk about Salt Lake City that much. So I think. Can we just start in Dinosaur National Monument border of Utah and Colorado. So we're up in the north western corner of Colorado when we're in dinosaur national monument correct it's most of the monument is now in Colorado but the part with the dinosaur quarry is in Utah and it's one of those parks that stretches across the border and it's Absolutely. Incredible. It's actually two hundred, ten, thousand acres and includes two river canyons both the green and Yamba River canyons and so some people think Oh, it's a national monument. It's not as big as a national park will actually it's a lot bigger than some national park. So the designation National Park is more Congressional and National Monument is Presidential Right? It doesn't determine the funding or the sides are valued visiting the site right? Exactly. So I have spent some time in Dinosaur National Monument but I've done exactly the opposite of the things that you've done. So tell me a little bit about your experience first of all. Yes. So we did is we stayed in an RV campsite outside of the park, but actually we're going to recommend that anyone doing this trip stays inside the park. It's just going to be a better trip I'm talking this cold tour that we're going to be doing here is more of an outdoorsy type of tourism, and so I think if you word of a reserve, the campground at either Split Mountain or Green River on the Utah side of. Dinosaur. National Monument. You would then be inside the park. It's a beautiful campground right on a quiet stretch of the Green River, and all these campgrounds can be reserved on recreation dot Gov, and you could do it with an RV and could do it with a tent. But if you wanted to stay outside there are places you can stay in Jensen Utah which is kind of the border town for the national. Monument, in Utah more in Dinosaur Colorado, they named the town after the monument. Okay and neither of those are all that large town as I am now I think the largest town in the area's vernal Utah, which a little further west than Johnson and actually we should mention that if you're into dinosaurs hopefully you are. If you're going to dinosaur national monument, there is actually a lovely museum in Vernal Utah Not a large museum, but you can see some velociraptor and things like that. So especially, if you're there with kids and I think you were traveling with two. That's that's someplace that I would recommend. We were on prevent a long drive from Bryce Canyon Up to Dinosaur National Monument, and so we drove to rural and it was we made sure to stop at some of those dinosaur statutes that are in town. We weren't unfortunately stay for the museum. I. Don't know if it was open actually right now a lot of museums here in two, thousand, twenty, nine open. It was great to see those the statues in town. If you like photo ops with giant roadside dinosaurs, you won't be disappointed on this road trip.
Why we must confront hard historical truths
"Not that long ago I received an invitation to spend a few days at the historic. Of James Madison. James Madison of course was the fourth president of the United States, the father of the constitution, the architect of the bill of rights and as a historian I was really excited. To go to this historic site because I understand and appreciate the power of place. Now, Madison called his estate monpellier and mom Pelia is absolutely beautiful is several thousand acres. Rolling Hills farmland forest with absolutely breathtaking views of the blue. Ridge. Mountains but it's a haunting beauty. because. Montpellier was also a slave labor camp. You see James Madison slave more than one hundred people over the course of his lifetime. And he never a single soul, not even upon his death. The centerpiece of Montpellier is Madison's matching. This is where James Madison grew up. This is where he returned to after his presidency. This is where he eventually died and the centerpiece of Madison's mansion is his library this room on the second floor where Madison conceived and conceptualized the bill of rights when I visited for the first time, the director of Education Christian coats. Cool. Why do took me almost immediately to the library. And it was amazing being able to stand in this place where such an important moment in. American history happened. But then after a little while they're Christian actually took me downstairs to the sellers of the. Mansion. Now in the sellers of the mansion, that's where the enslaved African Americans who manage the House spent most of their time. It's also where they were installing a new exhibition on slavery in America. and. While we were there Christian instructed me to do something I thought it was a little bit strange. He told me to take my hand and place it on the brick walls of the seller and slide it along until I felt these impressions or ridges in the face of the brick. Now Look I was going to be staying on site on his former slave plantation for a couple of days. So I wasn't trying to upset any white people. Because when this was over, I want make sure that I could get out. But as I'm actually sliding my hand along the seller war, I couldn't help but think about my daughters and my youngest one in particular who was only about two or three years old at the time because every time she hot out of our car, she would take her hand and slide it along the outside, which is absolutely disgusting and then. And if I couldn't get to her in time, she would take her fingers and pop them in the mouth which drive. Absolutely crazy. So this is what I'm thinking about what I'm supposed to be a historian. But then, but then I actually do feel these impressions in the brick I feel these ridges in the brick and it takes a second to realize what they are, what they are are tiny handprints. Because all the bricks at James Madison's estate were made by the children that he enslaved. And that's when it hit me. That The library in which. James Madison conceived and conceptualizes the bill of rights rests on a foundation of bricks. Made by the children that he enslaved. And? This. Is. Hard. History. It's hard history because it's difficult to imagine the kind of inhumanity. That leads one to enslave children to make bricks. Your comfort and convenience is hard history because it's hard to talk about the violence of slavery. The beatings, the whippings, the kidnappings, the forced family separations is hard history because it's hard to teach white supremacy. Which is the ideology that justified slavery. And so rather than confront hard history. We tend to avoid it. Now sometimes that means just. Stuff up. I can't tell you how many times I've heard people say that states rights was the primary cause of the civil war. That would actually come as a surprise. So the people who fought in the civil war. Sometimes. We try to rationalize hard history. When people visit Montpellier and by people in this instance, white people. When they visit mom appeal your and learn about Madison slaving people. They often ask. But wasn't he a good master? A good master. There is no such thing as a good master. There is only worse and worse her. And sometimes. We just pretend the past didn't happen. I can't tell you how many times I've heard people say it's hard to imagine slavery existing outside of the plantation south no, it ain't. Slavery existed in every American colony slavery existed in my home state of New York for fifty years after the American revolution. Why do we do this? Why do we avoid confronting hard history? Literary performer and Educator Reggie. Gibson had the truth of it when he said that our problem as Americans. Is We actually hate history. What we love Is No style.
The Mystery of Woodchester Mansion
"People have lived in the area of Gloucestershire share. Now known as would chester park since the Romans invaded Britannia but the site of the Winchester Mansion itself began as a hunting lodge in the middle of a heavily wooded deer park. The ducie family purchased the Land Law in Sixteen thirty one renovating it into a Georgian. House called Spring Park. The ducey's kept the house in a near constant state of renovation added several landscaping features to the sprawling four thousand Acre valley including a group of art official lakes in eighteen forty. The second earl of Ducie inherited the property from his recently deceased father. The Legend of what happened that fateful year would be the first indication that something wasn't quite right at the would chester estate. It's no wonder that rumors of full body apparitions, disembodied voices, and the strange smell of extinguish candles persist. Not when the initial occupancy of the mansion turned out to be so very, very strange. Henry was grateful that his father and past he would never say so loud but he could not be happier. He had long toiled in the shadows of Thomas Reynolds Morton look first earl of Ducie. While the reward of inherited title was a nice reward for his time. It wasn't enough Thomas expected a lot out of him henry heated the permanence near the Thomas War around his son the constant lack of approval had driven Henry to dark thoughts. It was unfair that someone who had so much could feel as though they were nothing. He'd contemplated killing his own father regularly. It wished for his father's death a thousand times. But wishes weren't enough. At night he trump of sneaking into his father's room and crushing his windpipe Thomas, Cole ties would stare back at him in defiance but Henry would only press harder. He would steal every ounce of paint from his father that he could. He would revel in at even. This was the retribution he deserved. But by the time, he finally summoned the courage to act on his feelings fate had intervened. His father was dead and Henry would be able to keep his soul free at sin. He should have been overjoyed, but there was a part of him. That was disappointed. Henry had wanted to watch the life leave is father's is. Instead, S. he stood in the church on that summer morning he saw the corpse of an older man that felt nothing like his father. This husk of a person wasn't even the slightest bit intimidating. He was justice Shell Serene still. No fire behind the size no disapproving sneer. To the best of his knowledge Thomas Reynolds, Morton had never looked serene is life. Death was as the saying goes the great equalizer Henry didn't WanNA. Feel equal to his father he wanted to feel better that him. His shock at being robbed of the chance to end his father's life was eventually swallowed by his own greed. He held the title and the purse strings that once belonged to Thomas. The legacy had been passed onto him and he could do whatever he wanted with that power. His first act of filial disobedience was going to be a party. He would holden enchanted forest themed masquerade at his father's last real estate acquisition but converted Hunting Lodge in Winchester Park. It was still under construction, but the ballroom was mostly finished and the incomplete designed would really add to the atmosphere. Henry woke with a sense of clear purpose on the day of the party even though he held the title for weeks, this would be his entrance into high society as an earl. The people would give him the respect they never gave his father. A. Played softly as Henry mingled with his guests, he welcomed as many people as he could bobbing out of conversations whenever he grew tired of the subject matter. Most of these guests were more his father's friends than his. He despised them, but he couldn't resist the chance to hold his new title and the imminent chaos heads. He outranked nearly all of them now. Though the event was a masquerade few visit guests had been particularly inventive. There was fun and trying to guess who everyone was. Something always gave them away the gate, the bone structure, the laugh. There were at least four uninspiring looking deer and far too many rakish second sons had decided to come as wolves. But there was one person Henry didn't know. A strange masked man was weaving his way through the crowd. He had never introduced himself and his body language was unfamiliar. Henry tried to get closer, but he struggled to even get a clear view of the masked man. The pushed through the of gentry ignoring their complaints. Finally. When the crowd parted they met. The mysterious man was standing still gazing out one of the large glazed windows to the forest behind. And redrew closer and put one gloved hand on the man's shelter. The did not turn around.
Trump to Visit California After Criticism Over Silence on Wildfires
"Going to begin right now going straight to California, which is facing, of course, record breaking wildfires more than three million acres burned joining me live. Los, Angeles mayor said he Mayor Garcetti, he thanks for joining us. We're seeing these horrific scenes out of the west coast the Bobcat fire burning fewer than twenty five miles outside of Los Angeles as of yesterday that fire destroyed almost thirty thousand acres. It's only six percent contained right now president trump is going to travel to your state tomorrow to meet local officials. He approved disaster relief for your stay three weeks ago. Are You satisfied with the trump administration's response? Well we always have great cooperation with our federal agencies and I want to thank them for that because they do step up whether it's corona virus or whether it's fires but I think leadership at the very top needs to be earlier stronger and from the President I wish that we would get as much attention not based on an electoral map but just. Purely on being Americans and the need for leadership to be from the white. House for all of America You know whether it's twin hurricanes on the Gulf coast or fires here on the West Coast we're one nation and sometimes looking at the leadership that comes out. It's easy to forget that it's taken three weeks I'm glad he's coming but. We need much more help when we have firefighters dying on the line and Washington refuses to help states and refuses to help local governments that are the first responders to emergencies like this. It's unconscionable. So instead of hitting the golf course going on vacation the president, the Congress respectively should sit down this week and finally make sure that there is assistance for. These brave men and women who are protecting our lives and protecting our property well to be clear. What exactly are you saying? President trump in your view would have done differently of California were say a republican state like Louisiana A or other states in the Gulf, Texas what what what would have done differently because he did sure Clare Disaster three weeks ago. Absolutely and I always say that that's very important that those agencies respond. We get good coordination but there's a refusal to blaming of blue states over red states in his mind I remind people there's a million Republicans that live here in the city of Los Angeles even if you're a partisan, you should be stepping up with empathy you should be stepping up with helping with a new cares act when people are slashing local government and state government laying people off this is bad for our economy. This is bad for our emergency response. It's terrible for our corona virus response, and so we need leadership that is equal across this country instead of being partisan and divisive, and it's very clear. This president seems to divide more. He's going to come out here and probably tell us I gonNA send you rakes instead of more help we need actual help material help not based on our party affiliation or how we voted leadership isn't about grudges. It's about governing for all. Well, let's talk about that because. Of Atta Rally last night president trump repeatedly told his supporters that containing the wildfires is all about forest management in. As you note, he's frequently criticised California for failing to rake the forest floors to prevent wildfires What's your response? What are the facts behind this? Well I listen to fire professionals not the president of the United States are politician when it comes to actually what causes these fires It's been very clear that years of drought seeing whether it's too much water and too much rain in parts of our country right now or too little. This is climate change and this is an administration that's put its head in the sand while we have democratic and Republican mayors across the. Country stepping up to do their part this is a administration president who wants to withdraw from the Paris climate. Accord's a later this year the only country in the world to do so Talk to a firefighter. If you think the climate change is real and it seems like this administration last vestiges of the flat earth. Society of this generation, we need real action we need to actually reduce the carbon emissions that we have and we. Need to make sure we can manage that water and this is not about just forced management or raking anybody who lives here in California insulted by that quite frankly and keeps perpetrating this live.

Firefighters Battle Massive Fires In Colorado
"More than two thousand firefighters are battling four major blazes in Colorado. Michael Hayden is incident commander for a wildfire in the northern part of the state we're working with the other fires right now trying to share resources we said just about everything we have out and recalling from resources all over the nation. Colorado public radio reporter Michael Elizabeth Sacrifice joins us from the town of Eagle that's near a large fire in western. Colorado. Hi there. Hi there. Thanks for having me on. So tell me exactly where you are what you can see what's happening there. I'm not far from Dot Sarah which was one of the areas on pre evacuation notice which means folks need to be ready to leave at any moment the Grizzly creek fires burning in a canyon nearby about a mile east of glenwood springs and this Canyon is one of Colorado's natural treasures. One firefighter I spoke with described seeing it burn as heartbreaking. This fire has shut down interstate seventy, which is the main east-west highway into and through the mountain communities, and this shutdown is causing major issues for businesses and commuters, and because of this is the number one fire priority the nation to try and get it contained and the highway has been shut down for more than a week already. So the number one priority in the nation. But as we mentioned, there's three other big fires in Colorado right now, what's going on with those? Yeah more than one hundred and thirty thousand acres have burned in total and a few hundred people are evacuated some from their homes others from campsites and trails. There hasn't been any structure loss yet firefighters are working really hard to try and keep that from happening short the playing. The penguins fire north of Grand. Junction is now the fourth largest fire in Colorado's recorded history and these fires are hardly contained all at this point and it's really smoky close to these fires especially. But around the whole state, the State Health Department has issued an air quality alert for the front range and surrounding counties, which warns that at risk folks especially should stay inside let children older adults in those with heart or lung disease. Yeah. I was GONNA ask how the pandemic is affecting all this. How what do we know about how covid nineteen may be affecting? Either the people trying to flee the fires of the the firefighters trying to fight them. Right, the State Health Department warns that there is an overlap the people who are most impacted by wildfire smoke are the people who are most at risk for the worst symptoms of Corona virus. The state said the meeting of Kobe nineteen and the smoke is quote a real public health issue. Some research has shown that exposure to air pollution can worsen the outcomes of catching the virus, and while fire smoke can irritate weakened the lungs and immune system making someone more susceptible to infection the state suggestion to stay inside to avoid the smoke they say is now even more important because it can also help stop the spread of Code Nineteen as well. What do we know by the way about what has caused these Colorado I? Let's see Mr with me. Start Your back high. I was asking about the cause of the first. Yeah. Going there under an investigation, the largest fire was caused by lightning. And right now in the Grizzly Creek fire, the canyon fire was likely sparked by a chain dragging on the highway or maybe a cigarette out the window at originated in traffic. But what's really fueling these fires statewide drought and heat, and we haven't really seen those monsoon rains just yet. Right thank you so much for your reporting. Stay safe. Appreciate it thanks for having me on. That is reporter Michael Elizabeth sacrifice with Colorado public radio.
A President out of the loop- Black Ops
"Welcome kits, myths, and mysteries cider host kid crumbs today I thought with rumors of a new coal or between America and Russia I do something on the birth of black ops most have become familiar with the term black ops short for block world operations from television and movies. It started with the Manhattan project and later the Atomic, Energy Commission, the atomic bomb was shrouded in. Secrecy by the Manhattan project that wrote the rules on black ops to further that point the world learned that America had dropped an atomic bomb on her Shimon. No one knew at that time or was more surprised than the US. Congress none of the members had any idea that it was being developed by President Harry. Truman had been equally stunned to learn about the bomb. When he became President Truman had been the chairman of the Senate Special Committee to investigate the National Defense Program when he was vice president meaning that he was in charge of watching how money was spent during World War Two. Yet he had no idea about the atomic bomb, the bombs price tag adjusted for inflation costs twenty, eight, billion dollars the Manhattan project employed two hundred. Thousand people it had eighty offices, dozens of production plans including a sixty thousand Acre facility in rural Tennessee, and no knew the Manhattan project existed after the War Congress was given control over the bomb. They created the Atomic Energy Act Nineteen, forty six, a terrifying new system of secret keeping presidential system was governed by presidential executive orders regarding national security information, but the new atomic energy. Commission formerly, the Manhattan project was now in charge of regulating national security information for the first time. In American, history of Federal Agency would be run by civilians that is to say that the Atomic Energy Commission would maintain a body of secrets classified factors other than presidential executive orders. In other words, ABC would keep the precedent out of the loop concerning certain secrets it was. Also the ADC created the term born classified. This meant that the Atomic Energy Commission could classify something that originated outside the government through think tanks and research from private parties. In other words, the e C could hire a private company to conduct research for the commission and the result of the research would be born classified leaving the president out of the loop while all this begs. The question of where all this clandestine research would take place the ask through course would be area fifty one and what pray tell would this research be on area fifty one was born depending on your source about nineteen fifty one, the Atomic Energy Commission was formed in nineteen, forty six. So wouldn't be a stretch to imagine that early research was on spy planes like the. To the flew over Russia but one, year nineteen, forty seven after the creation of the Atomic Energy Commission a flying saucer crash on a ranch just outside Roswell. New Mexico wreckage and bodies were whisked off to area fifty one fast forward to Nineteen eighty-six six when ninety two people came forward with witness reports of what happened back in nineteen, forty, seven, slash nine, hundred, forty, eight. This nineteen eighty-six event raise the public awareness concerning the Roswell. And certainly peaked interest in flying saucers general underlying that interest is always the cry that the government knows about flying saucers and alien life. But the truth is that they are probably as much in the dark as a general public think Atomic Energy Commission to hammer home. It was President Bill Clinton, who in January nineteen, ninety three, the beginning of his first term requested that the head of his Justice Department find out if there really were UFO's that sounds to me like a precedent that's out of the loop.
