It was an episode of the twilight zone nightmare at twenty thousand feet. Nineteen sixty three scared the daylights out of me here. I was a little bit younger than a lot younger.

"When you look at what happened when i saw the the afghans folding from the plains all all i ask people to do is think of that person as having every read desire every bit of love of life that every one of us has i i i told you. I think i've mentioned this that the most searing memory of nine eleven is the. Is the people jumping out of the the trade towers the twin towers. What is what is in their mind. That last moments those last moments do you know what a what a takes for a person to hang onto an airplane. Do you realize four. For an afghan who is not evil and tell obin evil or synonymous for an afghan who was not evil. The taliban are the same as the fire was to the people in the world trade center. Right isn't that an interesting analogy. What does it take to jump from an airplane. Or they didn't know necessarily they would. But i mean what what did they think you're going to hang on at twenty thousand feet. There's no there's no oxygen to begin with and you'll freeze to death. It's a death sentence. Why do people jump from the world trade center because they would otherwise have been devoured by fire. Why do people go on hang onto an airplane because they would have been devoured by the taliban.

"Marine archaeologists will barely have to go to see at all less romantic. Definitely but way. More effective and safer. Bob ballard has had his brushes with death in manned submersibles there was the time. He crashed into the side of a volcano at twenty thousand feet. The time he was in a ba'athist gave the caught fire and the time he got stuck in a crack for hours but he says unbalanced submersibles are quite safe and without them he never would have made many of the discoveries. He did starting with his first trip. To start mapping the mid atlantic ridge on the ocean floor in the early nineteen seventies. It took convincing to get the project approved and launched the day bob. Bauer had to make a pitch for. It might have been the last time. He was at a loss for words..

"As supersonic air is flowing over the vehicle and the feathered configuration shockwaves form on top of the cabinet which are audible to those inside and for those of you onsite watching on the ground you should be able to hear a sonic boom as spaceship unity. Once again breaks the sound barrier. All right folks we are now subsonic just under seventy five thousand feet in altitude and the pilots are lowering the feather now now as the feather comes down the nose of spaceship is going to drop. This is normal and expected. Once feathers down and lock. The pilots will begin a gentle. Pull up to a level attitude. And i'm hearing. The feather is down and locked now so at this point spaceship. Unity is a glider. So it's all about balancing her potential and kinetic energy so if the pilots wanna go faster they pointed nose down and if they want to go slower they bring the nose up. My lifetime worked per day dog food for lifetime. Been down beautiful space or cadel everybody or creating something suitable beautiful day. He got good people along the coast guard. How did this. So we're at twenty thousand feet now and descending and as i mentioned earlier. Unity is a glider at this point. I'm so the pilots. Right now are discussing their energy management plan and pretty shortly here. They'll be meeting with our chase aircraft. The pilots are coordinating with chase now and discussing their energy management..

"Speaking of aircraft carriers. I've i've told you about that. A marine contingent. Us marine contingent is with the royal navy's aircraft carrier the queen elizabeth and This is this is sort of of note earlier this week. Us marine and royal navy f. Thirty five bs conducted combat missions over the middle east striking isis targets across the region earlier this week after taking off from a british aircraft carrier marking the first time the us military has done so since the allies teamed up in world war two and So the the qe is on his way of the queen. Elizabeth the second the kelly to is on its way to the south china sea with with Half of the Of the thirty five's our. Us marine aircraft plus a us marine maintenance crews and all that so anyway. I'm going to check that that That's the first combat mission since world war two. There was tremendous cooperation between the us and great britain especially early in the war For instance the british spitfires to malta in in april and may of nineteen forty two malta was very close to sicily in the lou. Fafa were bombing malta. At will and the only thing that could get up high enough in time. We're spitfires and the british accent hurricanes wishes couldn't chug up to twenty thousand feet in time so the uss wasp actually picked up a bunch of spitfires A whole flight deck. Full of spitfires and then the hangar deck below they had spitfires in the pilots brought them down through the bay of biscay around spain through gibraltar and then late at night they ran up to speed. And all these spitfires. The guys at never ever flown off the carrier before the british Raf pilots and all these spitfires took off from wasp and made it to malta And then wasp turned around but that was the first time were to that. We cooperate with the british like that. But i'm gonna check. Because i think in the korean war there were some some occasions where. Us aircraft flew off of british carriers but And then of course there were some times in world war two in the pacific but But so anyway. It's just an interesting little side. Note there then for the first time since world war two according to this source The american aircraft took off for a combat mission from a british aircraft carrier..

"From a the strategic geopolitical perspective. Of course the opening and closing of aspects can have massive acts on global aviation industry and therefore individual nations. That'll braces and the impact on that particular commercial operation and a couple of really good examples. India pakistan ongoing conflicts over the kashmir region has been for many years now in march two thousand nineteen that on february. Twenty nine hundred really. That conflict escalated to the point of criti- much all out war between the nations and this led to the closure of airspace over pakistan india. Just for few weeks for pakistan s by st clair's for pretty much six months and that six months Space of in pakistan had a massive impact on aviation and billions of dollars worth of costs. I mean there were some airlines or the southeast asian on the had to stop all flights to europe because commercially make it work to have to divert round pakistani space. Now that said that sort of extreme example because space is pretty large and for that particular airline it would have been a massive increase fuel cost to avoid that aspects. But my really is that it can be very effective. Strategic tool to have an impact on different countries operators their aviation network the radiation industry. And actually again. This situation here is an interesting one. Where the eu has now advised you. Member states to crab in order to not allow better operates is to operate ever european aspects. Now that will have a big economic impact on belarus in aviation industry and therefore of course. That's a very strategic tool to be used by the who decides what is base is safe and unsafe as some very very good question and it's not a simple answer carrying unfortunately i wish it was and if it was it would make aviation safer in general. There's no doubt about that. The problem is that it is up to each nation states to define what they think is safe and what isn't safe and to provide bear aviation industry with that advice. For example you. K operators on governed by what u k regulating the department for transport what bay assess to be the risk to aviation operating in and around conflict zones and conflicts zone is is a term that is used to describe areas like syria alike eastern ukraine the crime ear and other areas around the world weather is a threat or risk to civil aviation connecting rods. If you like because of that complex existing on the ground say individual regulating bodies will define. What isn't isn't safe. The interesting thing is that most bodies bodies i should say won't actively prohibit for example again. Uk an example normally. It will be advice that they provide to their writers. We advise that in a good example is we advise that you can't write neighbor. Iran announced you over twenty thousand feet for example in order to maintain safety in that particular aspects. And it'll be a voice and again the uk advice to you is about batteries. Executive signed we adviser. You avoid batteries. It's an advice at the end of the day. Is he cooperated. That makes that decision. However other bodies like the faa for example in the us that a more prescriptive with their industries. And it's just a matter of a different relationship between the regulating body and the industry and here's the nub of the problem because there's a huge inconsistency globally between different regulating bodies and their relationships with their own industry and i relationships with the global industry the review of the organization is regulated. Baristas are the leading reason. The world like the faa like the uk ca like e. Asa german obey the french. Canadians are starting to play more a more active role in that as well as the european aviation safety agency as well most of the rest of the countries will just follow the advice of those leading bodies. There are other aspects to this. An asset is a simple answer. Unfortunately but of course if there's a threat within an aspect he's it is the responsibility of the authority that owns that base to highlight at threats or risk to liberalisation industry for example azerbaijan on menia nagorno-karabakh region which not too long estimates were pretty dangerous conference. I mean it still is a very contested area with a with a conflict zone in this this threat to civil aviation there are surface to air missile systems conventional musudan missile systems in that area. Now it is the local armenians azerbaijanis who should be hobbling near towns. They've ammon to advise the industry of threats within that aspects. of course that doesn't happen even regularly. Most countries will not publish no towns to highlight a threat with space and a perfect example of this is the shootdown of ukrainian lines. Ps two in january loss et over iran and rains not published any warnings about a threat in their.

"To what's going to happen where you wanna be later. This is the thing that everyone always asks you. What's your five year plan. What's your ten year plan. That's the horizons of focus snapped. And it's it's not about doing the work but it's making sure the work you're doing aligns with where you want to be in the future. The reason it's called horizons focus is because it structured in terms of all tutut. So you have. What's on the runway. And that is this five step process of doing your work. That's the stuff stuff on the ground that you're doing every day and then you start looking at ten thousand feet twenty thousand feet thirty thousand feet forty thousand feet which are various different views of your work so ten thousand feet might be looking at the projects that you have going on from the point of view of a project and not an individual action. Twenty thousand feet is more about know next six to twelve months whether the things that you need to be doing. Thirty thousand is a little further out. Think that's generally one year to three years out you know kind of what's the direction you wanna be heading in on a longer term whereas forty thousand feet and above is more about that five to ten year plans life goals where you what do you wanna be when you grow up and it's all about reviewing those and making sure that everything aligns with where you wanna be. There's a famous statement of you know if you don't know where you wanna go pass will take you there similarly if you don't know where you wanna be in five years than any job will get you there any work you do. We'll get you there because you don't really care but if you know where you want to be in five years whether that's family from family point of view from a work interview it allows you to pick and choose the projects now that align with that later that move you in that direction so just like planning your work using the five step system is always about looking at. What's the very next action. I do to move this forward. The horizons of bogus are once the very next project. I can do to move in this direction. Where i want to be later so todd i wanted to back up a little bit in everything about capturing to me it described it is. You're going to have to do something with everything that comes out. You does the system. Have any opinion about deflecting work and not doing work. Just because someone told you to do it. I mean there is the concept of delegation of work. So somebody comes to you and tells you says i need x. Have to decide first off for yourself regardless of whether you're T t the or. Not if you're going to do that like is this something that's important to do or not. You don't have to do everything yourself. Some of us are responsible for planning work for other people. And you know whether that's a child or a subordinate at work or pure at work that you're you're dealing with. I have sections in my system. That are things that other people are doing. Bad are important to me. And i need to check in so i have a list for my colleague steven of the things that we've talked about bats. He's going to do. And i have them on. You know on an agenda. So i can look on talking him and go down the list. Make sure we check on each one of them and that they're being followed up. Because if steven was doing ged. I could trust that he would. He would always come back with what i needed when we we'd we discussed it.

There's two main theories. There's actually three that she was turned around and landed and was captured by the japanese and died in a concentration camp. But we're we don't work on land. The other one was that she missed howlin went on. What's really amazing. Was when she told bearing she was on. The searching for jalan was the burying of all those islands. Because it's a hot spot like a y all those islands are on. She gave that bearing that. I'm driving this bearing because she missed allen and her navigator. New style was baker than nick. Aurora you all the way down so she knew there were islands. This does she do. There were none north of our so she. She knew her islands navigator did so. She's driving this so either one or two things happened. She tried to find hallen and run on a gas and sank in the deep sea or she continued searching and she came across. Nick moore landed and there were two theories. Well we were paid to drive pass. Nickname aurora. By the governor's you're mapping though national geographics we're gonna we're gonna rent in between but we only had in in two thousand nineteen the ability to go to four thousand meters. Okay which is thirteen thousand feet. The island is not as an island so we had the depth that we could go on the island. We could explore off the island so we add the technology in two thousand eighteen to check the box on that one which we believe we check the box. You see this show on disney. Plus mealy expedition pounded that one and put a lot of nails in that coffin. We went okay. Then i sent the ship up right after that to make a map around jalan. Because i wanted to go to jalan next so we made them app maps old. None and now we're going to go back because we have to go back there anyway. But now i have more powerful technology. I have the technology to to twenty thousand feet. Which i didn't have so. That's why i'm going out you don't you don't fail unless you stop trying to stop trying though it would be one of the great discoveries short of maybe jimmy hoffa's body wherever that is defined her some football field yet supposedly the new york giants. I goal line. That didn't pan out all right so last couple of things here Bob since you've got personal in your memoir about the loss of your son at age twenty one grief is such a a terrible but realistic thing that we all have to experience we lose our parents and and so on but to lose a child i have two children and i just to me. it's unimaginable. I just can't imagine how you go on. It's just kind of walk us through a little bit about that you know. How do you pick yourself up.

But it doesn't have aaron. Its swim bladder. It has oil in. Its swim bladder. So it's it doesn't feel pressure but what's really interesting when i dove down at twenty thousand feet in the baths gap. I watched my viewpoint blow into the cabin visit plexiglass and plexiglass people. Don't know is a supercooled liquid. It's not a solid so it can flow and i'm watching the porthole. Come in about half an inch. And then i watched it go back out on the way back and thank goodness. I remember In one of the one of the people that influenced me early in life was looking at national geographic was william beebe who went down at a bat in a ball and he was down there with his engineer and he goes to wipe off the port hall and the engine air told him his name is otis barton. He said a bill on the other side of the porthole is a the following tons per square inch and he made this classics comics. Because when you get closer breath condenses on the hall gets by and he said i took out my nap kin a handkerchief and and i wiped off the water with a gentler touch here. You don't want to take any risks. They're just gonna wipe you up gently. Don't get upset questions. Why is it takes so long to get to the bottom. It's only a couple of miles.

We had yet to see in ninety laps. So the move for the all star race was outstanding. I think kyle. I think this is the kyle larson. We all thought was out there. You can only decided but he wins in everything. He's so much talent we didn't know if it was his preparation holding him back if it was asked if it was his youth if it was his lack of mentor sh we didn't know we'll never know because it kind of all the jumbled up reset but now he's an organization with a lot of leadership. Jeff gordon you mentioned it stein in the fox booth what he's still has a role andrew motorsports rick hendrix there. Chad can houses there. We asked outs blue being us out. Hey how're the post like you said you ever met chad kind of. There's a lot of leadership around him and a lot of confidence and a lot of talent and driving great equipment and i think that's what you're seeing right the combination of the three two minutes amount of confidence. And you know we said it on our preview show. You and i both cholera and watching. Because you take that much talent with that much motivation. The timing of hendrick motorsports and what they're doing communist chevrolet and where they are in the grand scheme of things. You got this recipe for success. Now he's doing it against the defending champion on. His team is the defending champion of our series. And he's taking the fight to him and make no mistake about it. That's what it is you want to be. It's a friendly fight. Well it's a friendlier fight than it is. When against you. Know the guys at a a penske or gibbs right but you want to be the guy. He's been fast. I mean we're hasn't he run. Well right where. Where in winter aren't they going to run. Well what's going to question. I've got is what's going to slow them down right. That's what you see in the years where they team will go through a streak within a year somewhere in there. I don't see the stopping. I just don't know how the other teams are going to match it. You know at this late in the year. It's going to be interesting to see. I know they're gonna trot but they got their work cut out for some of the counter. They say they're going to try if you're a team. Principal another organization with the next gen car coming year out and split those rights right starting to be delivered like parks freeze are biden point not to get into simply put. If you're give you some names travis geisler or the decision makers or whomever that is and you're sitting up at twenty thousand feet looking at your team like a chessboard. Where you willing to put the pieces right. At what point do you just say. We'd better try to leapfrog on next year's guard. Because i don't know if we can get. This is a unique season to try to play catch up. I mean it's a cyclical sport. But i don't know somebody end-date don't think we've ever seen the investment the investment that travis guys i would say hey i need this investment. He can no long ago to his team and say i can carry this into next year. Difficult decisions are going to have to be made and to. your point. departs freeze the limited amount of wind. Tunnel all the stuff. That's already in place makes it even that much more difficult no practice. Say what you won't. That still has a huge bearing on. What's going on the racetrack. We used to go to the racetrack and we'd have three practices on a weekend. Think about that. I mean you can try a lot of stuff if you take a four car team knowing you got to catch up with three different practice sessions. That's a lot of stuff you can try. And i know they got simulation they got all this and let me tell you something. They don't drive the car when matters is what the driver feels the end of the day. Talk about all the millions of dollars spent the innovators one matters. And that's what the driver feels. Because he feels it and he can drive it the way he wants to. It's going to go fast. Now do that easier than others. Yeah right but it's the drivers got a feeling. The computer doesn't understand that yet. They just don't look reminds seven right. The the new car came on board. It was a split season with both cars chad. And i were both gucci vendor motorsports at the time and we a year before had given that new car to a different group organization. They handed it to us. I love how smart we were. We had nothing to do with it. We put on the race. Track the way. Those guys told us right hook line and sinker and is what you want us to run no problem and it worked and the reason that matters is because we stuck our heels on the ground and continue to work on the old car and everybody was trying to catch me and they had to decide to switch cars. They were going to try to catch us on it was it was a big advantage for you. Guys covered both ways and that oh seven season. It was the twenty four of jeff gordon. The four hundred jimmy johnson. You guys dominated that whole year. Much like hendrick. Motorsports has been doing through sixteen races. This year mentioned nascar. Picks up the schedule here where ten races remaining regular season starting at nashville superspeedway. I'm going to get the nashville. But i just want to give you guys a chance. Give us a recap of sixteen races of the regular season. Were the big takeaways. Going into the nascar and bbc schedule. I'm sure you guys all had hamlin and harvick being winless Coming into is picking up the schedule.

Things would come this summer but pemba needed to perform a prayer ceremony called pooja on specific dates. While on the mountain. Today is the first pemba builds an altar from stones. He gently sets out an offering of food and water and places colorful prayer flags the cracks between the rocks they flutter in the breeze then he sits on top of the rocks pulls out his fahd and presses. Play music and chance. Fill the air given to him by the lama himself. Then he settles into pray. He believes the mountain a symbol of the gods. His prayer is both an acknowledgement and humble request. We know we are going to disturb your peaceful place but please protect us.

"twenty thousand feet" Discussed on Scientific Sense
"Twenty eight hundred thirty thousand feet. And then they dropped down the atmosphere as the balloon cools. Und- goes down and these are basically big open bags. Twenty six million cubic feet of volume is huge and and they're carrying a payload that weighs tons and and so it sinks into the atmosphere and it doesn't rise again. It keeps sinking. Usually you have to carry ballast normally to you. Have to drop that bosnian. You thousands of pounds about to stay up one evening and that's too much to if you wanted to go along with long relation so in antarctica. The it doesn't droop down and so it can stay up for you know weeks and the other thing is that you don't have to carry batteries. To power your payload you can carry a solar panels and runoff running out the sun and that means that the batteries is not not a deterrent. To making you know having long flights so they had flights antarctica balloon flights that don't ask the day or two which is what typically happens in the united the united states but they last for The longest was forty two days and so So far the launch this thing from mcmurdo base Right off the art. Ross ice shell. It goes up Flies you know roughly in a circle at about one hundred twenty thousand feet and the ideas to bring it down someplace where you can recover. And dr is a big place. And it's a it's an adventure. Every one of these balloon. Flights is a great adventure. And so i people who go on balloon lights i keep wanting to do it again and again These hands are decent about call. Sneak raise said caustically well. Cosmic rays are high energy particles that travel through the galaxy and arrive here at her. We do not actually know the origin of cosmic rays what we believe that they are accelerated in supernova remnants and the supernova remnants are distributed throughout the galaxy. Sometimes there's more density than others other places and and a accelerate cosmic rays of all types accelerate everything up through your iranian and and there's electrons and positron and anti protons in the gaza grace. And i've had you know experienced measuring all of these things and it's been great fun. But what helix does is it tries to understand how cosmic rays make it from these Supernova remnants or whatever the sources to us and there are a lot of magnetic fields in the you know and they're spiral arms in our galaxy and the cosmic rays are all jumbled up by the magnetic fields and so they arrive to us through a circuitous path sometimes that path leads them through the disk of the galaxy but sometimes they escape the disk of the galaxy and then reenter the disk and come to you.

The World's Highest-Dwelling Mammal Lives Atop a Volcano
"In twenty thirteen to mountaineers were nearing the top of Vulcan Judy Jayco a twenty two thousand foot tall volcano on the border of Chile and Argentina. When they saw something unexpected, just two thousand feet below the summit climbers spotted a mouse scurrying across the snow. It's really a remarkable citing his known expected wild mammals to be living at an elevation of over twenty thousand feet. At that elevations that the scarcity of oxygen oxygen that makes it really a challenging. Place to to survive in function. But then also just the extreme cold, it's an extremely inhospitable environment J. Starts and evolutionary biologist at the University of Nebraska. The climbers reached out to starts because he studies how animals adapt to high altitudes and he was so intrigued that he decided to make his own trip to survey the area starts and his colleagues spent a month that Jews Zhigo earlier this year where they confirmed with the climber saw they found mice everywhere including on the summit officially setting a new record for the world's highest dwelling. Mammal. Start says, the summit citing was fortuitous, his climbing partner Mario Perez, Mamani saw the mouse dive under a rock just starts made it to the top exhausted and groggy from the thin air. It took starts a minute together his wits, but he eventually managed to catch the mouse with his hands starts collected that mouse and others as museum specimens that will enable future scientific analysis. They also their encounter on video. The report is in the proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences now that he's home starts wants to understand how these mice can survive in such harsh conditions, and conversely what prevents other animals from venturing. So high clearly the the device that are living these extreme altitudes. Have physiological capacities that are very different from your typical rodent. He and his colleagues are comparing the genomes of the mice from Judea Jayco to their lowland relatives to see if they can identify the animals high altitude adaptations. He's curious whether they have evolved some of the same strategies as mice that live at high elevations, in north, America in the Himalayas. Starts also wants to know how mice are finding food on top of a barren rocky volcano thousands of feet above the highest green plants. On his next trip, he plans to analyze the stomach contents of the animals, the capture. It's really an open question to whether most species are whether they're elevation limit is set by physiological tolerance or just the lack of ecological opportunity. It's probably a combination of both whenever the answer starts suspects, there may be more high altitude animals out there than scientists thought, it's just a matter of climbing high enough to find them

And if that wasn't enough Eileen was elected to the whole of mountaineering. Excellent Hey uh keep me from getting. You remember the day where we're sitting right now. I mean we're sitting in Tilden Park on. Trail called seaview with a wonderful view of the bay. While flowers greenhills Gorgeous California. And why so many people on the trail today? Well it turns out that everyone has been ordered to stay home or go outdoors and everything's closed so there are a lot more people outdoors than usual. Which is a good thing and you walk every single day. Tell us about that routine and and how you got into it. Well I do pretty intense work and I work really hard because I have so many opportunities and I've discovered that if every day I take a walk with friends or colleagues or sometimes even the chemical industry executives with whom I do not see eye to eye. It's extremely good for my physical health. My mental health and my work. You have an incredible history of climbing of mountaineering. Have you always had a passion for climbing and mountaineering? How did that start? I was raised by incredibly cautious and conservative Orthodox Jewish grandparents in Chicago and was not allowed to do anything and I push push push to just be able to take swimming lessons and so I guess I started early with coming up with things I really wanted to do and then pushing to be able to do them. When I was a Grad student at Berkeley I heard about an expedition to Denali Mount McKinley. The Highest Mountain in North America. And I'd been climbing a lot with my friends from Reed College and had climbed higher than Denali in Peru and apply gone the trap and was told that women could go as far as base camp to help with the cooking. And when I called to say well I've climbed higher than Denali. They said. Yeah you were the only woman. You probably didn't do your share you know. Women really can't time high mountains. I wonder if a team of all women could climb high mountains and I found five other women and we went and kind to Nali ourselves. All women were the first all women's team and indeed not only. Did we climb it? But our leader had altitude sickness and became unconscious just below the summit and at that point. I was twenty five. I was the deputy leader because I'd organized and suddenly I was in charge of our Denali expedition with an unconscious person at twenty thousand feet and a big Arctic storm. Coming in and We actually made a stretcher dragged her down the mountain and it was really empowering to me. I mean I'd had a lot of negative messages in my childhood about what I couldn't couldn't do and I thought wow we got grace down from Denali Alive. We can do anything. We dream up so that was really inspiring for me to realize sick. We can all do things and we believe possible when we have to then. You just kept going though. That wasn't the end of your mountaineering. No I love being in the mountains. I love being outdoors. I love being here. I seem to like challenge. I was on a nineteen. Seventy six expedition climbed Everest. We were the second American expedition in those days. Hard to believe we have the whole mountain to ourselves and I climbed to nearly twenty five thousand feet and on the way back. I thought at that point all the world's highest mountains over eight thousand meters. That's kind of a magic height They all had been cleaned by men but no woman had ever climbed eight thousand meters and people were saying maybe women couldn't and I thought well we climbed. Denali got twenty four Everest. Let's give him a chance. So on my way back from I I applied for a permit for Anna Purna one and it was the first eight thousand meter peak ever climbed. It has the highest fatality rate. And it's now considered the hardest climb and we did not know that and so In nineteen seventy eight. I did organize an an all women's expedition and we were successful. We were the first women and indeed the first Americans to climb out of that reinforced my belief that we can all do seemingly impossible things and I'd say now is a good time for all of us to be doing seemingly impossible things because it's it's tough right now. Your experience shows me and the tough things that I've done in my life is that you can move past them that they're not insurmountable and even if they are to continue moving forward with with those challenges. I've never been above eight thousand meters. What what is it like? I mean the physicality of losing that oxygen. Do you get addicted to that. It feels like a very rarefied club of people that understand and know something that the rest of us don't well first of all it's the most beautiful place ever being above timberline with clouds on your feet the extreme beauty and peace and so it is so beautiful. But you know being here until the park is so beautiful to you. Don't have to be on top of Anna Perna and there's a huge amount of focus. You have a goal and you get a great team and everybody shares ICAL. But I'm always kind of looking for family and a climbing expedition is like a family but perhaps better family dynamics and some families have so you have a family of people all focused on a goal. And you're in a beautiful place using every bit of your physical energy but your mental energy problem solving. So it's it's super focused. Every since I became a mom didn't want to risk my life because if you know this but the chances of dying about one in ten climbing those mountains so it seriously dangerous so for me as a mom. I don't want to risk my life on the other hand what I'm doing now which is reducing harmful chemicals that are in our bodies and our products and our planet so it's got a very similar similar feeling of of getting a great team family of people who share a common goal and then persevering through avalanches and storms and Yetis.

How climate change is making Minnesota skies hazy
"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America as one of the largest global financial institutions Bank of America is in a unique position to help society transition to a low-carbon economy, Bank of America, NA, member FDIC. Daniel, let's start with the current smoke event over Minnesota, where is it coming from? This is already dating from the large fires in or central Albert Canada. And that has been going on literally for Minnesota's since last Tuesday, the day after Memorial Day. And so we've continued to had wave after wave or plume after plume of smoke rolling in from the northwest over Minnesota. And how widespread is this bloom? It's not just Minnesota's covering a larger area right? Yeah. This plume has crossed the upper mid west into the Great Lakes, all the way into the southern United States last week. And then it's recycled with more smoke coming in low pressure systems, come across the country to mix it up. And then you continue to have a, a northwest flow in the upper levels the atmosphere bringing it back to Minnesota, and the upper midwest eventually to the Great Lakes. I know it's been unusually warm in parts of northwest Canada, in the Rockies parts of Alaska this spring. Is this something that may be a persistent feature for us this summer? It looks like it's going to be that way. We started looking at the pattern early winter to prepare for what we're going to expect here Minnesota this spring and summer and it's come to fruition that below level precipitation, amounts no pack as low warm temperatures in the fires have begun a bit early as far as the intensity when we expect him to continue on much of the summer, so we'll be dealing with the smoke and potentially or equality issues here through probably August or September. So I think I know the answer to this. But a lot of people are asking, why is are normally blue sky tinted white when we have the smoke, loft a lot of the smoke lobsters refracting the sunlight, so you're not getting the full energy of the visible spectrum to come through? So you're getting that bending and refraction of light sometimes by sunset you see the orange and the reds, the only long. Ways are getting through as the lot of scattering of sunlight by this smoke. At different levels of the atmosphere over us Daniel on climate cast. We try to put these events in a climate and climate change perspective. I know climate central did a study that shows the annual average wildfire season in the western US, one hundred five days, longer burned six time as many acres and has three times as many large fires over a thousand acres than it did in the nineteen seventies, we know as meteorologists that Minnesota's usually down wind from the Rockies. I've lived here, most of my life, and I observed, what seems like we're having many more of these smokey sky days than we did a few decades ago. But I'm wondering is there any way to measure that are there any metrics on how many days of smoke we're getting during the summer. Well, we're doing at minnaso- push choice agency, as we're tracking the days that we do have air quality gets into the yellow the Mata category, we will note that if they're smoky skies usually to buy visual by satellite. And so we've been keeping track of that for last couple. Of years, and the numbers are starting to be pretty telling of how many days we do have smoke in the air and not all days. We have bad air quality because it stayed aloft away from the breathing level to ground, but it's a growing number. We've noticed that quite a bit in the last two years. And how does MPC a monitor air quality across Minnesota? We have a network of air quality monitors mainly for ozone and fine particles. And those are the two things that we've forecast and alert for, and we monitors eighteen monitor locations that we track across the state and forecast for also, we'll issue alerts statewide, and we're also looking at some smaller lower price networks that are being installed to better detect spoke because we're a little bit blind in the northwest part of the state and we're trying to expand that area. But we also look at what's going on in Canada and the monitor's we look at satellite with oke radar. We look at different forecast models. A whole lot of data is becoming available. More and more in the last couple of years. Let's talk about the meteorology of smoke forecasting, when we have this smoke aloft. What happens Feerick patterns? Are you watching for to see if it can mix down to ground level and impact our air quality here? First of all, we looked at the all levels from the surface to fifteen twenty thousand feet and what direction that flows from and with its northwest flow, which is, you know, for all the canyon wildfires coming this way, the smoke this way, we start to look at how deep that mixing level is, how from the surface up to the lower part of the atmosphere. Is that gonna mix the smoke and disperse it or we're going to have sinking air at a couple of thousand feet above the surface to drive that smoke to the ground and a lot of times, we'll have a rain event or a cold front, and there's smoke didn't get cleared out. The sinking motion behind that frontal system will actually bring it to the surface, and that's really what drove the highest events that we've had in the last three years behind a cold frontal system with very high numbers indeed smoke. Fortunately, it does move quickly and doesn't get trapped because we don't have a lot of big valleys and stuff like there is out west. So what are you looking for the next week or so here? As you see the source regions still putting out smoke upstream. What does it look like for Minnesota air quality wise? Emmy we continue to be in that kind of the higher green into the lower middle yellow category where we've been writing for the past week. We've had a few spikes upward this not only fine particle, but believe it or not, it is the VOC's volatile organic compounds and the nitric oxide pollution gases in the wildfire smoke will actually help ozone formation. So we've had days where we've had ozone shoot up pretty high into the yellow category. And actually touched the orange for an hour or two and come back down. So we're actually dealing with two pollutant pro issues, the ozone and fine particles for forecasting and alerting process. What's the bigger picture message that you'd like Minnesotans to know about when it comes to monitoring air quality here in Minnesota. I think just the awareness, and it really has become apparent last couple years, talking with many people on the outreach that people are worthy welfare smoke, and how to fix because you can see it. You can smell it. And so that's going to continue. You this year tracking air-quality via the Minnesota pollution control agency website. You can download Minnesota air app, you can sign up for Enviro flash Email alerts. So there's a variety of ways to get it.
