U.S. Chamber Calls for Halting China Tariffs and Resuming Talks
"I just wanted to point out an interesting interesting op ed in today's washington post from tom donahue u._s. Chamber of commerce obviously the most influential u._s. business lobby in this country who he's always walked a fine line signed with intervening in politics. They don't support tariffs but they do support the president trying to negotiate better trade deal for u._s. Companies he basically calls on and the president though to withdraw the additional tariff scheduled to go into effect september first and december fifteen kind of a desperate last minute call there <hes> and to return to the negotiating table in good faith. He does give the president credit for the tax reform. The deregulatory relief saying that causes a lot of spending from businesses and warns that if we continue on this tariff route could be heading into recession because capital investment is a key driver the economy
The Latest on the Kashmir status
"We looked the heating tensions between two major u._s. Allies a nuclear armed nations india and pakistan. It all kicked off on monday. When the indian prime minister narendra modi announced that he was removing kashmir's special status from the indian constitution putting its autonomy in peril in an address to the nation today the indian prime minister doubled down saying that his actions would free cash of terrorism in a nutshell kashmir is a contentious piece of land split split mostly between india and pakistan and they have fought three wars over it already. The pakistani government is responding so far by suspending trade with its neighbor the and downgrading diplomatic relations as this tense standoff develops we have asked for indian officials to join us but they've so far declined and i'm joined now by pakistan's ambassador the to the united nations me lodhi ambassador. Thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me. How serious is this in the view of your government. I don't just mean politically for your government but regionally and what might do given the tension between your ought to nations christian. Let's i get the facts straight. How was this crisis triggered. It was triggered by illegal eagle annexation by the indian government off the state of jammu in kashmir which is an internationally recognized dispute in fact where i sit at the united the nation's it is a dispute that is functionally on the u._n. Security council agenda because there are a series of u._n. Security council resolutions that have of course on india to allow the people of jammu in kashmir to freely determine their destiny through a so the crisis is triggered by an illegal an illegitimate action by india and let's just get the rest of the facts straight. The facts are that there is a blanket curfew in occupy genuine cushman people. There are locked up. It's called a lock down which has entered its fourth david. Actually this has been a prolonged lockdown. These people have been deprived tribe of the liberty for seventy years or more now. They're going to be deprived of their identity because the action by the indian government what does it actually do. Ooh what it does is to also allow the indian government to bring about demographic changes in dublin kushner and therefore to really really threaten the identity of the kashmiri people as far as my government is concerned and my prime minister and my country's concern. We reject this move. We heard what prime hi mr moody said just a few hours ago and it was a dishonest deceitful and disingenuous justification of their action which has no basis in law and it's certainly flouts in flagrant violation. Security council has been ambassador. Let me ask you this. Let me ask because those are very very tough words. You're using you are the u._n. Ambassador you've just reminded us all how this is enshrined in international law given the dispute you should be resolved according to the international community so what is the united nations and the security council going to do about this so they taking it up well. I have been in meetings with top officials and i have reminded them of their responsibility. Pakistan has going to go to the security council. It is going to remind mind the security council and its members indeed all of the united nations of its responsibility and what is that responsibility that responsibility is to ensure and let me say to christiane for your viewers and important resolution. It's called resolution thirty eight of the security council and the paragraph two of that resolution says a country does not have the right to materially change the situation in cushman and that's precisely what the indian government it has done so my country wants a peaceful settlement of this issue. We've always called for a negotiated settlement which is an accordance with security council resolutions russians and in accordance with the wishes of the schmead people. Let's not forget the issue is about people it's about the people who have been deprived of their right to live the way they want to be governed the way they want to end today even pro indian politicians in in kashmir have been locked up so if prime minister narendra modi's says that this is in the interests of the jungle in kashmir people the question he has to answer is why do you have to lock up the entire state of genuine kashmir why because no cash media will accept what the indian government has done a we we we. We don't accept what the indian government has done. We checked it and we'll go to the council and we'll make all these points at the council and we will insist that the council implement its own resolutions because i think the choice right now is do we want to live in a rules-based world where international law supreme or do we want to live in a world which is ruled by the law of the jungle and this is what india has done it his floated international law and it has flouted security council resolutions. You mentioned lockdown and lock up. We've heard reports that opposition politicians in in jammu kashmir have been arrested and as you say landlines are down. The internet is down. Mobile phone is down very very difficult to get an idea of exactly what's happening on the ground there but i do want to ask you because the whole world knows that this piece of disputed land has been the cause of three wars between between your nations and today your army chief the the pakistani army chief said that the country would do all that's necessary go to any extent to support cash mary's and then the foreign minister said the pakistan is not looking to respond militarily so can i hear it from you. Do you think that there's is going to be a military solution to this or do you still have diplomatic intentions. No i mean we have said very clearly that all diplomatic diplomats and political options are on the table pakistan has no interest and no desire to escalate the situation. This is an escalation that was triggered by by an illegal and illegitimate act and we would like the international community now to stand up for principle for law for justice and to address the plight eight of the kashmiri people as i keep saying christiane. This is about people in that state in an occupied state an occupation that has been brutal india has moved additional troops into occupied jammu and kashmir why obviously to suppress the voice of the kashmiri people but one day the curfew will have have to end one day these restrictions will have to go and then the indian government will hear the voice of the kashmiri people and that voice will be to get get out of kashmir to leave kashmir and to reverse this illegal annexation but that's also gives rise to all sorts of worries because if they do protests as most people believe they will and some have suggested they will if and when this curfew is is is raised that also could trigger a response so let me ask you because obviously president trump has met president prime minister modi of india several times and he also just hosted prime minister imran khan oh prime minister at the white house and when they were talking president trump said that prime minister mody had mentioned. Maybe he into mediating in this. Let me just play what president trump said. I was with prime minister modi two weeks ago and we talked about this subject and he actually flea said. Would you like to be a mediator or arbitrator. I said
"tom donahue" Discussed on Amanpour
"Unlike minors drillers and fractures. They don't have to change change careers in order to help save life as we know it this listen to all the birds to something you don't hear when you walk out the cornfield i mean there's just so much more like i said not only the plant biodiversity but the wildlife society exactly exactly just advantage of a federal program that pays him let part of his fields go wild which brings higher yields in the long-term over nebraska brandon honeycutt is trying out cutting edge science. It's funded by bill gates that uses bacteria instead of synthetic fertilizer the stuff that creates ocean dead zones and red tides. That's all petroleum-based liam based kind of products industry that we live in and the more we can move to a more natural bacterial based. I think that's better for all of us and even some conservatives like like ray. Gasser are joining this green revolution. Even though the republican refuses to blame a warming planet entirely on human habits so how do you feel about a big members of your party even the president casting doubt and skepticism into whether or not humans can even help stop this well. I think it's more about not having being <hes> severe regulations. You know i think i a one-size-fits-all regulations really does not fit agriculture anywhere but like many republican neighbors neighbors he's still embraces wind energy cover crops and soil conservation as we farm a little bit differently as we sequester nutrients in carbon. We're doing the right thing you know and that's what it's about is trying to do the right thing. We all wanna do that absolutely and it shouldn't be political amen brother who we're corning island so there are solutions to the problems we face now for more of this this. I'm joined by the leading climate scientists michael man whose previously helped write reports for the intergovernmental panel on climate change and he's joining us from pennsylvania. Welcome welcome to the program michael man. Thanks christiane. It's good to be with you so i just want to pick up a little bit from where correspondent bill we left off because he actually showed us some very hopeful innovation and hopeful farming methods or taking place. Let's just talk about how how that one farmer talked about. You know being able to to plant his land allowing it to become a constant carbon sink and and to be able to really even feed vast amounts of people tell us what could and what's right about those sort of farming methods right now. The bad news of course is that our farming methods agriculture land use deforestation are contributing substantially to the climate crisis isis as this report lays bare but at the same time the good news is that there is ample room for mitigation. They're things that we can do to lower <hes> those <hes> carbon emissions from the agricultural sector from the livestock and food production <hes> among those as we've heard is more you know careful <hes> methods of planting and agriculture no till agriculture <hes> growing potentially different cultivars feeding livestock different food different <hes> food sources can actually lower carbon emissions methane emissions for example from cows and ruminants so there is a lot of room to decrease those carbon emissions collectively or a little less than twenty five percent that means that <hes> this isn't the bulk of the problem. The bulk of the problem remains our burning of fossil fuels for energy and transportation but this is a significant piece of the pie we need to focus on it and there is ample opportunity for reducing those carbon emissions in a very win win percents <hes> limiting deforestation more productive agricultural methods that will feed more people can also help us sequester carbon so it doesn't build up so quickly in the atmosphere so then tell me because you have contributed to other reports. Tell me what the significance vince is in your view of this latest report. We know that the first one which came out warned that we had until twenty thirty to get our act together as a world old to meet that one point five two degree critical temperature rise. What is this one telling us specifically. Yes these interim reports this special report for example on land that occurs between the major i._p._c. reports like the lot the one that was published last year are important because they focus on specific topics which are vital importance in this case. This report focuses on land. That's where seven and and a half billion and growing people live. That's where we live and climate change is already having adverse impacts on that land it is for example a leading to a loss of coastal a sort of <hes> land because of sea level rise and more devastating tropical topical storms that are inundating our coastlines <hes> because of the warming of the planet <hes> a large part of the tropics is starting to become unlivable hot it <hes> and we have seen rampant wildfires in eurasia in the u._s. That of course are a threat to our infrastructure <hes> so we we have these problems these growing problems associated with climate change that threaten the amount of land that we have at a time when we have a growing global population nation again of seven and a half billion and growing and as we've already alluded to the warming is having an impact for example on our ability to raise crops and livestock and feed that seven and a half billion and growing people on all of these things are intertwined twined. All of these challenges are intertwined. Can i just ask you then you know we again. Let's just go back to the farmer in iowa who talked about how you don't really even need more retraining. Maybe other sectors of the economy might but here you can make these an implement these changes without what a massive overhaul but a lot of the overhaul that is necessary. According to the report does require a lot of government resource and a lot of i i mean reeducation and making an awareness raising of how you change your habits the use of machinery the intensive ten synergy of the a farming etc and and just the wilding the pharma was talking about tell us the challenges to the overhaul of the land production and use yeah this gets at the heart of the problem. Which is that any real solution. Any comprehensive solution to the climate crisis is going to have to involve both individual behavior and collective and systemic change. <hes> there are many things that individuals that we can do in our everyday lives including changing our dietary <hes> patterns i <hes> changing our diets that can lower our own personal carbon footprint and in many cases that makes us healthier it saves us. Money makes us feel better so this is low hanging fruit fruit. These are things that we ought to do but at the same time we need incentives government incentives policies for example to help it shift us away away from our reliance on fossil fuels to renewable energy in that can take the form of a price on carbon or explicit subsidies for renewable energy <hes> that's critical because again the burning of fossil fuels more than two thirds of the problem but we can also have policies that help farmers and help the agricultural industry <hes> adopt practices better more carbon friendly that help us draw down that carbon from the atmosphere which is an important part of the solution while actually increasing agricultural show productivity we can't do that without governmental incentives that sort of point us in the right direction that shift <hes> collective behavior in the right direction and how do we achieve achieved those policies well. We have to make sure that we elect politicians who will vote in our interest who will act in our interest rather than on the part of polluting looting interests who too often fund their campaigns and have them in their hip pockets so in that regard the pharma at the very end of bill whiz report. It was quite poignant because on the one hand you know he didn't want to talk about the politics. He didn't want to admit or recognize that humans have an involvement in climate. He's talking talking about deregulation but then he says but look you know we're doing the right thing and it's important that we do the right thing. It helps kind of conflict between what's the right way to farm. What's the right way to look it is land and and what are the politics around it so let's just talk because this report does focus mostly on land and not so much on the fossil fuels which we've all hood of so much already the whole business of consumption so the farmers will say well hoke okay fine you tell us to plough more wholefoods food's more grains plant based food cut back on our capital cutback on the sheep but what if demand doesn't change and this just just remind people what demand bond is about according to i._p._c._c. food calories per capita has increased by third changes in consumption patterns contribute to two billion overweight adults an estimated eight hundred twenty one million people are still undernourished though twenty five to thirty percents of total food produced is lost or wasted so there a lot of changes that need to be made not just going more into plant based in and whole foods no that's it's absolutely right and again gets back to the heart of the matter. <hes> there obviously things that we can do in our everyday lives being less wasteful of food and and in eating food that is less harmful to the environment that is less carbon intensive and in shifting away from meat <hes> is an important way of doing that that if it fits you know within the constraints of your lifestyle <hes> that having been said <hes> once again we need incentives educational efforts <hes> government funded and supported <hes> outreach in the form of public service announcements and programs to inform some people about the choices they make and how they can make healthier choices and we come up once again against some pretty entrenched interests for example sample the you know the fast food industry of course there are other challenges when it comes to our efforts to sort of transition to to healthier diets less you know again meat and fat intensive diets. That's part of the problem to achieve that we need changes. We need shifts and human mm-hmm and behavior in those shifts won't happen on their own. They do requi- coordinated efforts <hes> through educational programs by governmental and non-governmental. Ah entities do before. I wanted to play a little clip of an interview i had with the director james cameron and his wife susie and they've come up with a book called oh m._d. The essentially one meal a day and it's about being plant-based but before i do that i want to ask you. Is there a comparable shift in human behavior and habits that has occurred in the paused with government help and public service announcements and all the rest of it that has worked because that's what everybody but he says i mean how are we going to shift human behavior in a in such a dramatic way yeah well we have. I have seen <hes> efforts of. This sort succeed in the past. When it comes to global environmental problems like ozone depletion acid rain ultimately <hes> <hes> these problems arose from practices that do occur at the individual scale <hes> in the case of ozone depletion <hes> was spray cans ends and old leaky refrigerators refrigeration used a chlorofluorocarbons or freons these chemicals that ultimately get get into the stratosphere and destroy it so it was individual behavior that was <hes> putting those chemicals into the atmosphere and yet what we saw was that a market oriented program to place incentives that move industry away from using those <hes> <hes> ozone depleting chemicals ultimately did lead to the solution of the problem. We've seen massive recovery now of the ozone hole <hes> around antarctica <hes> because of those systemic changes that ultimately simply provided better choices to individuals and consumers choices that don't damage image the planet. I think that's really an optimistic and important reminder that actually these things can work and can work in a way that's not just beneficial to the planet but beneficial to individuals as well and doesn't cost them march here is what though on the plan and food and land issue that we're talking about particular with this report the director james cameron and his wife told me a while ago what you're putting on your plate actually makes a huge difference is towards not only climate change but your health as well and i guess planet. I'm go ahead just the health of the planet. I mean the the the quickest and easiest way for an individual to be to feel empowered to make a difference and to be able to look at their face in the mirror in the morning and think i'm making a difference. I'm doing.

See people have worked injuries, and then they get the letter about, well, you're going to be using your FM L A's legal, they can ask you to use your FMLA concurrently with your time out of work for a work injury. But what alive employers do is they try to say you've been out of work for three months later, there is no such thing as a legal automatic terminal. An automatic termination policy with the FM L A, if you could just automatically terminate somebody, then you're not engaging them in the interactive process using they're using the work injuries out being out of work to exhaust the FM L A of their employees, basically. Right. ADA still requires them to engage in an interactive process with that employee and an unpaid leave of absence is considered a reasonable accommodation in some cases, so they can't just say, okay we started your clock ticking for your valet.

"Resolve the US chamber of commerce has weighed in on the government shutdown and it is not amused chambers. Executive vice president Neil Bradley wrote an open letter to congress last week saying, and this is a quote, the adverse consequences of the shutdown are wide and growing. We've had no Bradley on the program a couple of times now talking about the chambers policy agenda and the Trump White House. We call them up again today. Neil. It's good to talk to you. Again. Glad to talk to you. So this letter goes out onto your signature couple of days ago. You say with each passing day, the situation will only get worse talking, of course, about the shutdown. What are you hearing from your members about how bad things are getting literally each day? We hear from a new company whose encountering some problem that they didn't anticipate we hear about small businesses, for example. Who can't get an EIN number from the IRS to actually open up and start doing business and employer number. Yeah. Exactly. We we hear about companies who are waiting on permits to to sell goods that they've already produced that they're waiting to ship. But maybe they need a permit from the department of treasury because they're they're a craft brewer they can't get permits. They got product is simply sitting in warehouses on able to ship to consumers. The other thing you saying this letter Neil beyond that it's time to end the shutdown and get the government fully back to work. You devote a whole paragraph to the immigration system and how broken so my my supposition is that you at the chamber one immigration fixed as a larger part of resolving the policy differences in Washington. We do it. It's long past time to fix our broken immigration system to take some common sense steps like providing protection for dreamers, for example, long-term TPS beneficiaries. But our overarching point has it's time to get the government open. We're doing too much harm to American families and businesses. Okay. So look of apologies for poke in the eye on this one. But you. As the executive vice president of the US chamber of commerce have written. This letter your boss, the CEO, Tom Donahue, who went on a different public radio program whose initials are weakened addition Saturday this weekend said basically the same thing and yet the president of the United States is ignoring the US chamber of commerce. What does that tell you? Well, he's ignoring lots of people, right? We're not the only saying that there are problems with having the government shutdown. He's increasingly ignoring that large number of members of his own party. Listen, he has priorities, and and we share on some of those priorities, but a government shutdown isn't bringing us any closer to a solution on immigration these days in his administration that he's never going to get back. So we're hoping that that both parties come together find a solution and get us out of this mess. The chamber came out the other day with something that caught my eye was it was a change to you're grading. I guess of political candidates. And and you know, you like many other interest groups in Washington, great political candidates on and and. Incumbents on how they vote on your issues, and you now are explicitly saying, and this is a change that you will take into account bipartisanship at when you start grading these candidates. Why what's what's changed for you that you think this is now important, well, one of the biggest problems we face is that elected officials seem to get honest more often than rewarded when they work across the aisle. We'd like to change that dynamic. So we decided to have that reflected in our score. You'll the old adage and businesses that you know, you measure what you've Allieu today there's a premium on bipartisanship. So we've decided to measure it and make it part of our scorecard..

You may have heard a product or about a product once called glitch G L I F. This was their first product that did extremely well. Which was the very first iphone tripod sort of adapter and it made six figures in the kick starter world, and they've since created multiple physical products. And they've got the system down. They've got some really interesting techniques. They have some really interesting structures in their business. And they have some very interesting tactics for getting involved with new physical products. They've also had number failures as well, which they've come on.

"Thank you for bringing that up. Because now that you say that I cannot tell you a rift that Mike Tomlin has ever had in every single season. This is eleven season for this is twelve actually this is season. He's never had a rift that I know of the they try to make a rift with him and aeriens, and it really wasn't because area and I've seen folk blindsided by that whole thing, but they never had a problem with each other. They always said that he was going to have a problem with thick LeBow when he came in and Tomlin was was smart enough and was respectful enough to go ahead and say, hey, I'm not gonna mess with a tried and true method of I'm not gonna mess with dick lebeau, and he'd Dopp did his defense and. Brought it in they had great success together. But I don't know of anybody as a coach even a disgruntled coach that that left. No areas was disgruntled, but airings is just disgruntled guy, but I don't know of anybody that if you could come up with one I will be shocked. I agree. Well, thanks, can we will talk to you next week after what is hopefully a win over the the Baltimore birdies. So I have a great one, buddy. All right. You too. I'm gonna. You can. That's a great question. I mean, you know, I'm so glad Ken brought that up because my Tomlin does not get credit for the week. He treats his his assistant coaches, and I would think that these guys love to work for this guy. Yeah. That's a great point. I mean, you never hear. I mean, I love the car. We all however, he had a lot of turnover on this coaching staff at you know, they're they're always rumors that heating they really necessarily get along with him. And then of course, there was staying power or him, and Tom Donahue, the the defacto general manager at the time. You don't hear anything like that with Tom Hugh Jackson last week when he basically threw out Haley under the bus and his press conference. And I'm basically said I'm going to take over to play calling my mom would never in a million years. And that's that's the difference between hand, and most coaches, and the NFL my common, you could say what you want about his and os and strategy, and it's probably time in that's probably unfair. But he's a great leader of men, both his assistance and his players. There's a reason why he's always up there when it comes to the the the opposing coach that players. Play for he's always up there number one. And number two. That's not an accident. The guys just a great leader in men's and and even keep about there there there have been rumors that you know, he took over the play calling. He's calling plays a yet to ever say that he always says knows keep probably what is true or not. We'll never know. But at least he's he doesn't his his his guy under the bus and as far as the Todd Haley firing that I mean, he Jackson catching guard. I've kind of expected that. But I thought after last week it would be like an either or thing. Hugh Jackson was fired and Todd Haley would stay on the fact that he got fire to kind of really shocked me because they really kind of handcuffed him this year. They they gave him a rookie quarterback which might benefit in. They all took away, Josh, Gordon, and and and Carlos high. So I've kind of got got short trysted there by getting fired today. You know? 'cause if they don't have just Gordon they're not beating the Pittsburgh Steelers. She'd be they're not tying the Pittsburgh Steelers in week one right notice I said beat because I still feel that that was a loss. Even though he goes as a tie in the record book and thank goodness goes tie in the standings. So, you know, a lot of great things we talk about as far as on the field action.

The only person you mentioned on that list that hasn't been on any of our podcast is Romy sharpish affects that. Yeah, definitely been Greg. I don't know how that happened, but I go your. I echo your list for sure. What's interesting is how you how you said, I, I know what a help have a heart for helping. I love this. I have experience in this in a one being open source, the other being marketing. How can I marry the two. And I think many people actually maybe take that perspective. They just dive into something the seems like you're a little bit more methodical by your by your process. Can you speak to that well, so speak to that. I wanna talk about kind of how developers view funding and open source for the most part. What I've seen across the board is developers, think funding comes from sponsorships and buttons to and stickers. Right. Exactly. So you see all these developers who are putting these pay buttons on their websites on their get Hubbard me's and hoping that they'll generate funding, and I'm sure we'll get into open collective, which is basically the super powered version of that, which works really well for certain cases, but, but most of the time, the way what I was saying was this money that was that everybody's fighting for everybody wants to get more money in the table, but it's all coming from this. This donation slash charity fund, which is always limited that funding is limited, and it's going to be the first. If it's coming from company, it's the first thing to go and anything gets tight. And typically developers are hoping that other developers will donate and in I've donated to some projects before, but again, then I turn around and have my own projects and then who donates to me. So the question is, why are we approaching this problem from a charity funding source point of view when we could say, okay, well, why don't we tap into marketing budgets and say, and then all.

Something wrong had gone on in this this far away country in this city that that probably. Very, few of, us had ever heard of Benghazi, I asked Tom Tom you told That you knew Glen was over, in, Libya right but you thought we. Thought he was in. Tripoli, he is where he? Was so you? Know our first reactions as? Friends, and. Family were is, he safe, you know and so, when we heard. Benghazi we said yes yes he was safe, you know as the story came out he a bag of cash in a. Plane went to save his friends and that's that is Glenn. That's who he, was and that's his legacy but but we initially thought he was safe Kate you and a group of friends have formed this foundation Tom told me it was formed a relatively short time after, Glen's, death correct Yeah I mean we were all kind of grappling with this tremendous loss, and The media was present. And we we felt like we had a platform really to do something good and at the time we didn't. Really know what it looks like and what the, ultimate mission statement would be but we knew. That.
