Would you would you would get that, you know, it's a broadcast day. So you put on the best t shirt that you have, which is Tommy bomb. Am I right? Or wrong, because you have some that aren't Tommy Bahama. Yeah. That you just put on find out you're out. You just want to say anything, and Matt is here with a little baby Georgia's here. So we appreciate it. We're good to go. It's six minutes after seven o'clock, who's eight Martinez is the senior reporter for the city covering transit Jose. Thanks for joining us as early in the morning. How're you doing this morning? My friend. Well, we appreciate it, man. Listen, what we're trying to figure out every everybody's trying to figure out. I know the National Transportation Safety board is now on the scene. What do we know about yesterday's afternoon, yesterday afternoon's crash there Jose? Will become a little bit clearer. Now that you have those inspectors plumbed, the National Transportation, Safety board inner city as he said, I would imagine the case on these things happen, that there will be a briefing from the ESPN at some point to, to make a little clearer. What happened yesterday was as, as anyone those day here in the city where the ability was good. It was pouring rain and had somehow a helicopter crash land onto the loop of building in midtown Manhattan or the fifty stories tall. Now, it's rather remarkable that the operator of that helicopter was killed if no one else terrible tragedy. But, you know, you, you look at the alternatives that it's again, rather remarkable than one person was killed him. Not many more yet because that building, we were talking about earlier Jose. Had been wasn't flat. No, there was no flat surface on top of that building. Correct. He was trying to make a landing, and you're there, there are no helicopter pads atop buildings in Manhattan. Those have been gone for. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. Remember the Pan Am I'm old. I remember the what was then the Pan Am building where the choppers were coming in and out all the time. Right. Sure. Several people killed with a helicopter toppled over on top of what was then the Bill rate. So thank God that this guy had the wherewithal, the drop it down on that building. But and, but something must you don't know technically, we're not hearing about what happened technically with the helicopter, correct. Not yet at this point. Police you'll has only did it appeared that this was executive travel or the chopper was headed back to Linden, New Jersey. But again, we should know a lot more the circumstances, whether or whatever it was that happens here, because it really was a difficult day for, for traveling in any condition, so that you can only imagine how it must be at the controls of a helicopter. You know as, as we reported in the city last night, Joe, this is one of those that's going to bring up, again, all types of calls from political leaders about the need to put a tap to limit the amount of travel in the aspects over York City. Yeah. It's so in a couple blocks away from the president's residence, which was scary. It was just a couple blocks away right now Jose. There was an mayor de Blasios note. It, it he was on CNN yesterday. Shit. I've put a limit on this helicopter Bill, only if you get clearance from controllers LaGuardia Airport. So all of that still to come out a lot of questions unanswered in this case, but certainly, a tragic thing for the family of the local of that, that would pile up, Mr MacCormick K and Jose. So did you ain't an inside the building that must have been so scary after what we went through nine eleven? So the people I heard that the building rumbled that it was that hard of a hit. Yes. Sure it was something that they felt and heard inside the building, according to reports there were a lot of tweets from people in the area of the tremendous noise that company this. And so that building had the evacuated quickly. It was a fire atop the building there on seventh avenue. Certainly a flight scene for everyone in there. And the area has to end the mayor de Blasio know governor Cuomo gone on here on the air, immediately and then made the blog was in town. I should know this did he come have to come back into town. Both of our leading political officials make make sure that everyone knew they were around from governor Cuomo to mayor de of that is correct, right. Jose Luis if you hear anything give us a call, 'cause I guess, their next will be did you get a press release on when they will be a hearing from the NTSB? Has yet to say when it will be doing that. But, you know, every time this happens, he eats, it's the formulas that they will come out and don't give as much information as they have without, you know, going into what caused it, but they, they sick to the facts, but they're usually very informative briefings. So that's something to look forward to because I know so many people have a lot of questions about just what happened you and well done Jose. Oh, you appreciate you. Joining us my friend and keep us posted Jose Martinez. Thanks so much. Thank you, Joe. Okay. Man, who's as a senior reporter for the city covering transit, so he'll gives breakdown eight seven seven nine seven twenty nine ninety nine balance of nature phone lines. You're welcome to call in if you were around the area. You heard you saw anything. I just feel for the folks in that building you hear that building rock. And then they always say, just stay put would you just stay put after what happened in nine eleven and I don't remember the announcement came over in the world trade tout. Don't move don't move. And the, you know, people did these your debt, your tendencies to stay put, but an interesting to see what some people did yesterday began very, very scary and cook, but it just could have been a lot worse. And I, I'm telling you, I'm a guy he gets on a helicopter. A lot. And it's always safe. It always seems okay. But I don't I don't remember going over Manhattan now. I don't remember going Manhattan in the old days we used to chopper, and we'd go right? Over Manhattan close. But now since nine eleven I don't know that, that happened. We would come in on the East River coming on the Hudson river and you come in and around, but you could see the heloc the, the, you know, Tom Kaminsky Kaminsky, and these guys out from the other stations are flying around in ABC, seven chopper, they always go round, but, I guess, indeed, they are over the city itself. Yeah. Wpro city. Yeah. So that's you think it'll stop you think to put a stop to. Well, I hope so. I mean, it's going to be tough because you have a lot of people this clearly demand for this, right? And you have one of the most powerful companies in the world Uber, that is going to do everything they can to fight against it. And a lot of very wealthy campaign contributors that, that utilize this service that are going to do everything they can to stop it. But at some point, I think it's going to be something of a wake-up call. So we'll see we'll see, I mean you know, what's this has all the makings Chuck Schumer press conference right now, he doesn't have to wonder what he's going to be doing Sunday. Now, this is this is it to me, so you can have helicopter flights around the city you can go on a tour and take a tour of the city on the helicopter. A lot of people use the helicopters down here on Wall Street and on thirty fourth street to fly to JFK or LaGuardia to get to a to a borough whatever to get to the airport. Right. What other uses aside from the traffic choppers? Are they going to get rid of all right? I if you're going to say no more tourist flights around Manhattan in the surrounding city. Okay. That's one thing. But the these private businesses that, that utilize these helicopters. I can't imagine that they're going to restrict these flights. I can't with all the money that they put in again, somebody calling correct me if I'm wrong. Eight seven seven nine seven twenty nine ninety nine I'm ready to talk to my buddy every trophy. But unless you're doing, I know they do stunt pilots, David David wind Miller, who I had the privilege of being with flown with David one of the top stunt pilot sneak top stunt pilot and Inga's when he just film shoots like with Martin Scorsese, there over the, the city, you know, but every time I come in, I'm coming on by the statue of liberty on the Hudson or were coming on the eastern that's the approach. So now it doesn't cut a still you gotta worry about queens. You gotta worry about that whole area by the words, but I don't know directly overhead Manhattan. Do people go, and I may be wrong that need flight pattern and that, that is very? Well may say you're lending at one of the heliports though, when yeah. Thirty fourth street or you're on the south side. She playing I've taken a seaplane out right on on these driven, which, again, you're landing on the river, you're not lending. You know, I I don't know. It's just I can't imagine that the FAA or somebody is going to put up legislation that says you can't do this at all. I think that, you know, maybe they they ban tourist flights which would obviously hurt some of these helicopter companies if that's what they're basing it on. But, but what is it over is going to have this Uber lily, or labor, or whatever to get you out to the Hamptons, or get you to great except I mean, this is not the morning to say that. But it's a great concept. You know, because it's an it's so needed. Because traffic they won't address the traffic problem in the city, they won't and now and the traffic from the they put jet typical progressive politicians go. Let's tax it. They don't have any, any solution Democrats Republic, none of them. They have no solution. So the need a chopper city, by the way on that point. And then just a you know what somebody said that the Uber drivers that. Like half the drivers more than half. Two drivers don't have passengers just driving around looking for people to come into the Uber cars. Is that right? That's been just makes congestion something there's got.

"But I, I would not I would just be careful in terms of, you know, the what someone throws out in, in a budget on either the one house budget by the legislatures, or the executive budget. It is really a starting point, not really an ending point. So I wouldn't I wouldn't give it the same consideration as a full-fledged peace of, you know, fully developed piece of legislation but it was very interesting that it had sort of the same framework of this EPA which tells me that I don't think we're all that far apart in terms of our vision of how to move forward as a state toward a decarbonised economy in the near future. Nancy, thank you for your call. Joseph in Brooklyn. You're on WNYC. Joseph. Good morning. First time caller, thanks for taking my call. I was just curious, if they ever considered offering maybe a rebate for homeowners to better insulate their homes, you know, with options out there like spray foam, and stuff like that, because I mean eighty percent of the homes aren't insulated properly to begin with, and I guess you can reduce fossil fuels maybe should start with the way the homes are insulated now. Assembly member angled, right? Anything any incentives in this package for homeowners? Joseph is spot on the low hanging fruit really the place to begin is in the homes. It's the largest sector contributing carbon dioxide, you know because of the use of fuel and the amount of fuel that is used is excessive because of the lack of installation, and whether. This is certainly something that we as sponsors envision as being a priority because. It affects every community in every one, one of the pieces of our Bill is to inspire investments, low income communities that happens to be where the greatest density of housing is. So we would be investing into our cities, basically, at the forty percents level, and we'll be bringing jobs forward at the same time that we're reducing the demand for electricity and fuel that sounds expensive is it assembly member? It is something that we need to do. Let's the price money. What's this will actually in, in the short term will require some investment? I indicated before they were hoping that we can stimulate anticipating that we will stimulate venture capital investment. But I think it's really a public private partnership that is likely to evolve the Senator mentioned that there is a an advisory group. We're talking about the specific recommendations that will be made step by step as we go forward. That's one of the responsibilities of that advisory group we can't right all of that into a piece of legislation anticipating each step along the way, but we can set the framework we can set the experts. Nations and the goals. And that's, that's why this Bill is so important Senator Kamensky is their first year budget for this. There isn't exactly. I mean, the, the budget that would come initially about this would be kind of the infrastructure of the actual groups. The groups are subgroups that would be sitting out this planning, but this is more of a roadmap of how we're going to get there. And we're going to have as many experts as we can there's many fields as we can without being too unwieldy coming together to do this. Those are the individuals who are going to put forth, the plan of action for the state, and at that point, we'd be able to assess, how do we get to where they're going? What the cost is. How how do we come up with funding for that cetera? This is setting the framework setting lofty goals, and having the best people in the physicians to help to help us get there between the assembly member and myself, we held, I think four hearings basically day, long hearings each time on this, and I was really, really inspired, whether it was different scientists or different young people in the communities, different people who understand the technology, I am confident. That we can get to where we wanna go. We just have to send the signal and set the framework to get there. And I believe the technology will get there. They'll be a motivation to do that. And we could be first movers in this area. I didn't leave one meeting thinking. Geez. How is this possible? I don't have every detailed how we're going to get there. But I know we need to unleash our creative forces, and that the times require us to do, so Glenn and he's tall on WNYC. Hi glenn. Good morning. This is something that is always on my mind. I constantly listen to shows Dane Wiggins on progressive radio network. Does excellent coverage as does, Gary null? Gary null has already written up in new green deal. When you ought to take a look at you had me until you said public and private partnership. I'm completely opposed whenever we do that. It seems that the public ends up paying for the private good of, of, of cells. So I would caution you and I to have run for city council. So I know how government works. I would caution you to stay on the side of the public. Forget about the private. There has been some great strides already made. And I'm just putting this out there where my parents live in New Jersey, a town next to them is kind of a lower. Lower moderate income, and I am so thrilled. When I see every roof has solar solar roof on it. And from the solar roof, you can't get your electric car. You can plug into that. And when you have your electric car, you don't have any emissions, and to me, this is common sense and what it really is. And, you know, this, there has been a lack of willingness to come over to a different way of making revenue, we are so vested in the small handful of billionaires in the world. And this and this country that we're allowing ourselves to be murdered by climate change in order to keep them then fat and happy. So we have to just say to our, you know, disgruntled children at the top sorry, but enough is enough for the greater good of this world. And you know what? We don't have one second left to wait. There is no more time. We're next that. Thank, thank you very much. We're almost out of time. I want to touch a couple of things real quick on this. And then on one or two other things going on in the legislature because there was so much right now on deadline. Senator Kaminsky on on this. Is this Bill going to get a vote in both chambers of the legislature? And do you think that well let me just go to their it's one thing for to have majority support sometimes even with that? It doesn't come up for a vote is that can happen. Is that guaranteed? This is a top priority of the Senate conference. We are there, obviously, some details about the Bill, like like mentioned before about adding in different interim goals, and things that and energy efficiency, that, that we just wanna make sure we're set on, but having the toughest climate change that we could do. This session is a top priority. I'm confident we can get it done. And we're going to be pushing this hard as we can to do. Simply members same question. Well, speaker hasty has given us the compass direction on this, we've passed the Bill three times already, and I that we will pass it again this year. This is a top priority for house. It's, it's easy to pass a Bill when, you know, it can't fit through the Republican Senate in the past speaker, hasty committed to actually bringing it to a floor vote speaker hasty is committed because he understands the importance of this for all of the people of the state destiny is tied into our ability to know that we have a predictable climate and stable set of weather patterns, we, we need to know that Long Island isn't going to be drowned and that New York City isn't going to be submerged by sea level rise. All of these are priorities. The speaker is from New York City. So, you know, this is a, a commitment that he has made it respective of politics lasting very briefly on the went laws. We saw the big protests yesterday in Albany, arrest of New York City. Public advocate your money Williams and other people over the rent regulation, proposals both majority leader, Stewart cousins in the Senate and speaker hasty in the house have promised the strongest rent package ever. So has the governor and Stewart cousins seemed to indicate yesterday that she is now supporting all nine pieces of the rent reform proposal, including the so-called. Good. 'cause vixen, which would bring a lot of nonren-, stabilized buildings under rent controls, Senator Kaminsky d you support that and do you see this passing? I have I have serious concerns about about. Good. 'cause I certainly understand the need to protect for television against tenants. But on Long Island where having affordable house, building density, portable housing is very difficult. That's anything that gets in the way of that raises a flag for me, obviously, the Long Island members are, are speaking about speaking about that. And I think that hopefully will, you know, I'm pretty confident we'll we'll get considered but there is widespread support in our conference for, you know, obviously, the strongest set of rent packages. It's existential for many members in the conference, and that's been made clear, and we certainly support the, the leader in, in, in saying that obviously, if there's a regional concern on one particular issue. You know, I think that can be raised, but, you know, it they're certainly going to be historic reform this year, simply member wrangle, bright last question. Same same question. And they'll at a time. The speaker is absolutely committed to protecting the tenants of New York City. The he calls them constituents. So he's totally committed to the proposals that are now being talked about in both houses good, cause of action up or down for you. I'm sorry. The question is a good cause vixen proposal. Yes or no for you. Familiar with that with that particular piece of legislation what they call. Good. 'cause vixen. No, I'm not familiar with that. I don't have any rented role in my district. So I this from sixty miles away, right? With that particular Bill. I think that Bill would bring some to your district, if I understand that correctly so conversation to be continued. We thank New York state, Senator Tom, Kaminsky of Nassau County, New York state assembly, member, Tom angle, bright, Suffolk County. Thank you so much for coming on today. We really appreciate it. Thank you. Brian Lehrer on WNYC stay with us on the next a multimedia.

"Put tell you what should be in your wardrobe that's pretty good i see i would have never thought of that that that actually works doug you're on with the two tall tom kaminsky here and the a time i put it couple question where in your mind what is the number of days of prediction that we're you know that you you feel that we're pretty can fifth in there pretty but on it that three days friday's would've the today and affect him for the question is what is the technology in your you think before you're done but what's that i'm pretty nifty if you can extend daughter we got the back go to start he'll be able to get it isn't much thirty four okay well i would depend and what so different people consider what is spot on forecasting of how far in advance we can do it like for instance today's tuesday night you know i before castoff through sunday which written on the text here it doesn't mean that i'm going to know the exact when direction on sunday in all facets going to blow week you get once we get to outside of a seventy two our window were basically looking at more generalities and talk rams rather than specifics that's what i don't really do specific one forecast that for advance wanna throw number out there for instance by say sunday so it's going to be out to score number older forty it doesn't mean and i am exactly sure it's going to be forty him given myself a ball four degrees on your side of that to conserve that a valid forecast awesome so i started forecasting in nineteen eighty i've noticed oh that short range forecasting ability has probably increased better than the long term forecasting abilities are still a someone's variability when you go out to four five seven days that in one down the road i'm sure that's going to improve but you're never going to have a situation where forecast is going to be able to give the specific seven days in the past i don't think so at least thanks to the good question for its is looking.
