A highlight from Meaner
"Hi everybody, welcome to The Dennis Prager Show. There are a couple of articles, interestingly, at the same time on a question that is worth discussing. And that is, David Brooks of the New York Times had a long piece in the Atlantic and there was another one before that and also in the Atlantic as it happens. Which is on the left but the subject is, the thesis may be on the left but the subject is not left or right. And the subject is, are Americans becoming meaner? Have you thought about that? Does that strike you as a phenomenon that's taking place? For example, the number of people kicked off airplanes for rowdy behavior, for screaming, shouting, cursing, is much more than it was in the recent past. Yeah, I think people are becoming meaner. You think people are becoming meaner? I think there are lots of reasons for that. Yeah, well that's the issue. So there are two issues. Are people becoming meaner? And if so, what would the reasons be? And sense I it too. The ease with which I see people on the road flipping off other drivers, for example, especially younger people, though I think the phenomenon is more widespread. You know, I've traveled, as many of you know, I've been to 130 countries. I've traveled abroad every year of my life since I was 18, except for 20, was it 20, 21? 20. Or 20, 20? 20, 20. 20, 20. I even went, yeah, I even went to East Europe in 2021. It was not easy to travel on. So I had developed a certain sense, and it may be completely erroneous, I don't claim that it's infallible, but I did develop a certain sense of the world's friendliest people. And I've always included Americans on that list, and very many Americans remain, of course, quite friendly. But there's a sense of tension out there, and it's hard to put one's finger on it. I'll tell you one thing that may be related and may not be, because there was yet another article that I was reading, and that is with regard to service by the airplane or airline industry, that they're shifting as much as possible to artificial intelligence chats, which I find, personally, I find useless. Some airlines have abandoned human interaction completely, which is, by the way, another subject that I will cover. I doubt many listeners know this, but the only example I remember in my life of being for government intervention as opposed to non -intervention with regard to business was the airline industry. It was done, I believe, under Ronald Reagan, and I did not believe… Oh, it was Jimmy Carter, yeah? Well, at least it shows that I wasn't partisan in my outlook. But of course, the conservatives supported it, and I totally understand why. You don't want to regulate industry. But I remember thinking, if the airlines start competing solely on price, then I don't know how the excellence of the airlines will not be diminished. Do you ever see, for example, do you see… I don't watch TV, so are there airline ads on TV? Are you aware? You know, Fly American, Fly Delta? You don't watch TV either. Zach, you live in front of the television. Right, so are there airline ads, Fly Delta, Fly American? Yes. There are? That's fascinating. I wonder why, because in so many cases you have no choice. I mean, those of you listening in St. Paul and Minneapolis, Twin Cities, if you don't fly Delta, essentially you drive to a city that you can have some options for. seats So the got crampier. They no longer serve meals. It's very, very hard to get somebody on first try if you call in to the airline, and that's because everything is devoted to the bottom line. Now, I don't lose perspective. I know how lucky I am that I fly first class, and my height I have essentially no choice. But I was on that… when was it on? Which airline? Oh, JetBlue, yes. I flew JetBlue from Fort Lauderdale to L .A. Saturday night. And room the in the first row, which has always had a lot of rooms, the bulkhead in first class, it was a little more than the somewhat roomier seats in coach. And the flight attendant was very open. She said, oh yeah, they reconfigured the plane, so there's just less room in the seats. This was first class. Because you make more money if you sell more seats. It's obvious. So, back to the issue of the meanness, and the many articles about it. The question is why, if it is happening, and if it is, that's a very, very bad sign in America. How America got mean is the article. And it begins here, in a culture devoid of moral education, generations are growing up in a morally inarticulate, self -referential world. his So, theory is they're not taught to be an ethical human being. Well, ethical is not the same as nice. You could be not nice and ethical. So, he calls it morally or inarticulate, self -referential world. Over the past eight years or so, I've been obsessed with two questions. The first is why have Americans become so sad? The rising rates of depression have been well publicized as have the rising deaths of despair from drugs, alcohol, and suicide, but other statistics are similarly troubling. The percentage of people who say they don't have close friends has increased fourfold since 1990. The share of Americans ages 25 to 54 who weren't married or living with a romantic partner went up to 38 % in 2019 from 29 % in 1990, a record high 25 % of 40 -year -old Americans have never been married. So, one out of four Americans 40 years old have never been married. I've reported on that. These are data that I have given you over the course of the past year. The percentage of high school students who report persistent feelings of sadness or hopelessness shot up from 26 % in 2009 to 44 % in 2021. Do you remember in high school having persistent feelings of sadness or hopelessness? No. I was talking to the usual teen. No, the usual teenage angst, of course, but this is persistent feelings of sadness or hopelessness. Yeah, I don't think we were atypical in that way. My second question is why have Americans become so mean? I was recently talking to a restaurant owner. That's exactly whom to talk to, restaurant owners. He's right, back in a moment. Natural disasters, airline cancellations and runway near misses, supply chain issues, inflation, rising interest rates and sky high government debt. This is Dennis Prager for AmFed Coin and Bullion.

Factory sometime could slam the brakes on Tesla's winning streak. Take the story from Bloomberg's Denise Pellegrini. Well, Tesla has broken four quarterly car delivery records in a row, but that could be about to change because over the summer the electric vehicle maker shut down some of its facilities to make upgrades. Also, it's possible it's being hit by consumer inflation pain with potential buyers having a harder time making big purchases. Because analysts surveyed by Bloomberg estimate Tesla will report as soon as Monday it delivered almost 457 ,000 cars in the third quarter low that just about 466 ,000 units delivered in the second quarter. This would be the first decline since early 2022. Meantime, in China Tesla has just released an updated Model Y slightly faster with a new wheel design and added lighting. The starting price though remains the same. That is Bloomberg's Denise Pellegrini. We check markets throughout the day here on Bloomberg.

A highlight from S13 E06: Luna's Path: Poetry, Authorship, Life's Wonders
"Hello, welcome to The Elone Show. I'm your host, John Mayelone. In this episode, don't have any regulars, because... reasons. As for our guests, they are from Minneapolis St. Paul's and they are an author. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Luna Ray Hall. Hello, hi. How are you? Going great. Thank you for having me. You're welcome. How's life? a Life is lot. You know, I'm glad it's almost fall. Yeah, it's been a whirlwind of a summer with this book coming out and a bunch of other things. So it's been good, but it's been a lot. All right, then. Very good. So... How did you become an author? Yeah, um, yeah, so I kind of think I'd go back to... It really started in college. I was never really a good, like, English student or a big reader when I was a kid. So when I got into college, I didn't really know what I wanted to do. And I had to take English courses, so I ended up taking a poetry class and that really struck a chord with me and I went from there. Went to grad school for poetry. That's primarily what I write is poetry, except for my most recent book, The Patient Routine. That's a horror genre mix with poetry as well. So really, I mean, it's I think it's just a good a good thing for me to get out a lot of emotions and feelings and it's also, I mean, I love telling stories, I love showing people how I see the world, how I imagine life looks like to me and yeah, I think that's kind of, you know, there's a lot of things that being an author and writer gives you that you can give to other people. I think that's kind of where I lean to why I keep doing it. Okay, sounds good. What was life for you growing up? Yeah, um, I guess I kind of have a standard Minnesotan experience. I come from a medium -sized suburb of the Twin Cities to a lower middle -income you know, household raised by, you know, both my parents were there and I have two older older siblings, a younger sibling so I kind of, you know, it felt very average to me throughout my childhood. So I don't really have anything to like, you know, nothing like wild happened to me. I kind of feel like I just went to school and came home and lived, you know, did my homework and kind of did other things but um, yeah, I, you know, I don't really think it's anything special, you know, I don't think there's like anything that like that I look back on and I'm like, wow, that was really unique. Alright then, that's cool.

And there's actually a third part that goes along with that, Morgan. We can bring her on here because it's our podcast and we can. That's right. Dang, dagnabbit. And before we start, I want to give a shout out to Gates, who's hopefully studying hard to be a forensic anthropologist. So yeah, I know people, now these people owe me because I got her daughter a shout out. So thank you very much. Thank you so much, Kathy. But I'm fascinated. How did you get started in this thing of ours, you know, close enough for business, where you'd like digging up stuff in your parents' backyard, digging up things, looking for things, how did you get started in forensic anthropology? Well, you got it partly right, digging stuff up. I started out in archaeology. As an undergrad, I was fascinated with archaeology. I got my degree in anthropology, focusing on bioarcheology, human skeletons. Went through grad school doing the same thing, bioarcheology. What interested you in that to begin with? I mean, I was always interested in nature and in collecting frogs and snakes and things when I was a kid. Something about bones, bones are people, but they're also hard physical science. So that that combo appealed to me. So I stayed with it through grad school. I was actually I wrote a short story called First Bones. It appeared in a collection called The Bone Collection. And it's Tempe's origin story and it's also my origin story. She's in her lab one day. She's working on her archaeological specimens, her, you know, ancient skeletons. And because she's the bones lady at the university, cops showed up, you know, with a case that they wanted her to look at. And that's exactly how I started. And I did that. I remember that case. And I was just I love archaeology, but you're not going to change anyone's life. Whereas when you do forensic work, you have to be right when you tell a family this is your missing member or when you testify in court, you're going to impact lives. And I really like the relevance of that. So I retrained and took my board certification exams and I shifted into forensics and began doing casework and have stayed there ever since until recently when I've largely retired. Now, I think I saw that you grew up in Chicago? Partly, partly in Minnesota, partly in Chicago. I was born in Chicago. Which part of Minnesota, hey? Just south of the Twin Cities. That's my sister and brother -in -law live in Apple Valley. And they've got a cabin up at their family shares a cabin up at East Rush Lake. So, you know. OK, it's been a while since I've been there. We moved back to the Chicago area when I was 16. So it's been at least 10 years since I was. So growing up in those areas and with your interest as a child, were there a lot of bones in those areas? I mean, in Chicago right now, there probably are. But back then? Yeah, well, you know, we'd stumble upon an animal bone every now and then and get very excited. We had a little lab in the basement and we would analyze things in our chemistry set and a microscope and my sister and I would analyze things in the lab. What was your favorite kind of books growing up? What were you reading? I liked mystery books. I liked Nancy Drew. I read the Hardy Boys. I liked that kind of thing a lot. Not exclusively, but I do remember reading that whole Nancy Drew series. Yeah, it's such great. The other thing, too, is it took you on I remember as a kid to, you know, reading those books. It's like this is so cool. I grew up in my dad was military, moved around the world, but ended up in the Midwest, Kansas. And it's like you would take you on journeys. I could never go on living in a little small town. Let's talk about your first case. You said they brought you your first case. What was your first case that started you on this whole journey that you're on now? It was a child. I think she was around five years old. Went missing in Charlotte, North Carolina, back in the 80s. And I remember there was a thunderstorm that night. I remember wondering if that poor child is out there all by herself in this thunder or worse, not by herself out in this thunderstorm. And sure enough, about three months later, they found little bones in the woods and they asked me to come and help recover them and to analyze them to see if it could possibly be this child, which it was. And what were the circumstances of her? Well, you know, did you ever establish cause and manner of death? Yeah, she was murdered. She was what was I forget the fellow's name. He he murdered three children altogether. He was convicted, I believe, for the murder of a child, 10 year old who lived blocks from Neely Smith, the one I worked on, Amanda Ray, I think her name was. And he was convicted of that and sentenced to, I forget, life in prison, I think. Now, that was your first case finding bones for a dead body, right? Well, unless you count all the, you know, the occasional dead animal when I was a kid. But yes, that was my first human forensic case. So what was the feeling? I mean, knowing that the small child, first of all, it just tugs at your heartstrings. But what was the personal feeling with you? I mean, this is your chosen profession and this is your first case as a small child. It's got to be somewhat gut -riching, I would think, to start with. It was, it was. But also it was very satisfying to be able to give that family closure. I mean, there's nothing worse than not knowing. Well, I've never been in that position, but I can imagine not knowing is just torture. Yeah, it's one thing, I hated going to autopsies of kids or whatever. I'd work even accidental stuff, whatever, or SIDS cases or stuff. You know, it's like because my kids were about the same age at that time, too. You know, it's like, man, just kids, just that's one of the toughest things to do.

Chicago Yesterday a couple of headlines here the city tried to come through with their power was one of the quotes from individuals. At 38 Chicago Tensions and George Floyd Square after barricades removed but then were put back up again, plus the agape movements and taking credit for largely for the efforts yesterday, a lot of details to get two plus your phone calls this morning, Ryan Summer said. Go ahead, Ryan. Oh, hey, morning, guys. Yeah, I have a lady that I work with and her husband works for the or he works for the city of Minneapolis admit in that sector, where his removing stuff, he said. Got there at three o'clock in the morning, and everything was fine. But by five o'clock in the morning, everything just went right to hell in a hand best to they started throwing rocks at him, calling him black calling on the black city workers. Uncle Tom's and just horrible, You know, racist names and stuff like that. Was Ryan Winkler there? Nothing. Go ahead. Oh, yeah, It's one thing If you want to pronounce nuclear, right, look up, Homer Simpson. Him, he'll He'll tell you it's a nucular Pepe. But But, yeah, she said it was really bad over there for him. He actually packed his pistol in his lunchbox because he was Great for his wife. Yeah, I looked hard to blame him. Thanks for your call. Ryan. Look, we were talking yesterday about the all the incidents that went down around the anniversary on Memorial Day when you had a lot of media out there, and you had photojournalists from the Star Tribune tweeting about how you know security, quote unquote. When and took their drone destroyed it. Told them to leave and never come back. I mean, these are these are First Amendment rights that are being basically suspended once you enter this autonomous zone Once you enter George Floyd Square. Your constitutional rights cease to apply when the security and the policing apparatus in that area is essentially gang members well in giving all respect. To the communities that have been negatively affected by police violence. We get that there is a problem, however, the solution to the crime problem in Minneapolis and to the eventual opening up of George Florets, George Floyd Square. Is an increased law enforcement presence. That is the only way that works. And I believe that MPD doesn't have the authority gravitas numbers to do. George Floyd squares opening properly. There needs to be added resources from other entities, Whether it be the state Patrol, whether it be the governor actually bringing in the the National Guard to help with this There needs to be increased presence, and that's not going to happen with public works. It's not going to work well, and that's in the and now that we've got, you know the more information and about how yesterday played out to what you were saying, Brian, I completely agree and Yesterday. We were kind of taking the stance of earliest. I was, you know. Hey, if the gap is the bridge to reopen to get rid of the autonomous zone, reopened 38th in Chicago and have the police come in and restore peace then, Okay, that's great. With with now having the luxury of hindsight, I disagree with that. And I agree with Brian the problem now, and this was the concern that I had yesterday was that There's a precedent that's been set here, and it's perpetuating that same idea that the community shouldn't be trusting the police if they had allowed the police to come in and I'm with you. I think there's a question there on whether or not they've got the manpower. But if they had had a presence of law enforcement or national Guard, along with this effort, going back to having a gap there as well, Now you're re establishing a precedent because those individuals I don't have any honestly sympathy, but I completely disagree with the individuals who have been in support of keeping 38 in Chicago closed the autonomous zone that being said, I can also understand where their anger is coming from because the president has been set for a year. They've been. They've been allowed to have their merry way for a year. And so you come in and suddenly go. You can't have it anymore that I can understand. I don't agree with it. But I understand why those people are like what's going on. Why now? Can't we right? I mean, like they've taken they have ownership now in that mentally, that is a that is a very powerful emotion that that sense of ownership. You might have over something an area and they have that Now We talked on the show a lot over the course of the last year about how amazing it is how quickly you can become acclimated to new situations. You know, with the whole covid pandemic, how quickly people became acclimated to wearing masks and social distancing and not going to restaurants and all those things and how it's really hard for some people to go back to living like they did a little over a year ago. The imagine that now in the confines of George Floyd Square of the people that have been Living in that area for now, and then something starts to come around. Change. Hold on. Wait. You know I've gotten used to this. You know, that's my garden. That's my art. That's my shack. That's my thing. That's my speedway. You know, I've gotten used to this and and I don't want it to change. But the thing and it goes back to this is not the and by and large the community there. So I was I was at George Floyd Square before George Floyd Square the day after Memorial Day. So there was the initial protesters set from 5 to 7. And it wasn't a protest. I'm sorry. It was really more a memorial and it was a time for community to come out and speak. And I went because what I saw on video It was terrifying to me. You're talking last year last year last year, the day after I went for five from 5 to 7, Um, no law enforcement the area. The community started by speaking and what happened is there was a group of like other folks that came in and started shouting down the speakers. The speakers were folks that lived in the community, and they wanted to say what they were feeling about what happened the day before. And it was. It was an out as a whole Other group that came in started like playing loud boom boxes started with this car with speakers on it, trying to rile people up and there was no law enforcement around at that time, the very the very first day and I looked around to my friend and it was about an hour. We've been there and I said, we have to go because this is becoming unsafe. That was the day after, and I knew within an hour of being there that things were going. We're going wrong there that things were going unsafe, and that's where it established. And as you said, it's continued. 6519895855 will take a quick break. We will continue with the Friday roundtable. More conversation on what exactly went down yesterday will also get into some some of what happened last night with riots and looting and destruction. That is really in my opinion, largely under reported this morning, and we have we have the dollar amounts of how much a gap has been getting paid. There's a lot throughout this past year. It's a lot. It's a lot. It's a lot a lot more money. We have to get a couple of n f D. With that money. You could probably Build a nuclear power plant Justice improve. Let's just put it this way.

Hi paul thank you very much for having us on and talking about this important topic what trends are insurers seeing for billion dollar weather disasters in minnesota over the past couple of decades up until nineteen ninety eight we had decades of stability and in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight. We had three significant storms including one on may thirtieth that was part of the southern great lakes to ratio. That storm cost nine hundred million dollars in insured losses and those three storms together in one thousand nine hundred cost one point five billion dollars and that's important because that one point five billion dollars in losses is more than the previous forty years combined and since then as you just noted it really hasn't stopped so this is almost becoming an annual thing.

If the irish community isn't as concentrated into the pool as it used to be then does that mean that the center has become more about the city rather than it does about the irish into the pool.

Because i think that we do have to become wider than i should in fact that's already been happening over the last ten years and he often see events are essential which have nothing to do with ireland.

I really saw something that has gone on through the generations. Patrick was saying something that throw families who've been going since nineteen sixty four sixty five. There are people who are sort of like synonymous with the place as good friends of ours like coachella england. Who was on their first committee back in one thousand sixty five. He's still going. So there's plenty of people who are trivia originals and you see the families going back generations with the singing of the johnson the music people like Lachlan's the quinlan's best to go and they probably original members still think that it's a place where you can walk in fact home just on a one off basis and people tend to come by so there's people i see in the bar who don't know and then suddenly they find that they're going we can and cannot do at the irish community it just like being in the place you know as a very welcoming you know relaxed laid back place and there's always something going on even if it's not formal echo and on this usually people making their own entertainment so there are families that are like you know is like almost a dynasty.

Scientists Have Found Some Truly Ancient Ice, But Now They Want Ice That's Even Older
"It's chilly across the country today. Highs of just fifty eight in miami and sixteen in minneapolis which makes minnesota colder than an arctic as mcmurdo station but the cold weather doesn't last forever in the twin cities and in antarctica. It does ice their last hundreds of thousands even millions of years and as npr's nell greenfieldboyce reports that makes an arctic the perfect place to find some of the oldest ice in the world. Just how old is the oldest ice. On earth john higgins says. Nobody really knows you know. Would i be surprised at this point. We had five million-year-old is i mean. I'd be surprised. But not it's not unfathomable i think he and some colleagues recently collected ice samples in antarctica. That were later analyzed and shown to be as old as two point six million years. It's beautiful stuff when you pull out. The is it. Essentially as crystal clear accepted filled with tiny bubbles the bubbles contain air from when the ice formed and this trapped air is what scientists are really after higgins says if you want to understand how gases like carbon dioxide have affected the climate throughout history. You know you can't really do better other than getting a time machine and going back in time and taking an air sample then using these ice cores which physically just trap samples of ancient air to release that ancient air. All you have to do is melt the ice. That's the sound of a research camp manager in antarctica making drinking water by melting scraps of two hundred thousand year old ice in a metal pot to actually collect an analyze the release gases however ancient is has to melt in a lab. Sarah shackleton studies old princeton where she gets to watch the trapped air bubble out and that is something that i don't know if i'll ever get sick of watching. It's actually like pretty mesmerizing and one thing. That's released surprising every time to muse. Just how much gas is actually in the ice. She says it's a lot and samples from time. Periods undergoing past climate changes could be used to help make predictions about the future. One of the biggest questions in terms of kind of the modern warming and look anthropogenic. Climate changes helmich warming. Do should we expect with the amount of co two that we have in the atmosphere now. Antarctica has been covered by an ice sheet for at least thirty million years. But it's actually pretty hard to find really old ice. John gooch is a geologist. At the university of minnesota he says while snowfalls constantly add new layers of ice to the top of the ice sheet the oldest layers at the bottom can disappear. That's because of geothermal heat coming up from the ground so the rocks are giving off heat of slowly over time and so that has the potential to melt ice at the bomb. Still bits of super old ice like that two point six million year old sample can sometimes be preserved at the ice sheets edges the older snippets of ice. That we've been able to find come from places where the ice has flowed up against a mountain range and been exposed at the surface in those spots though. The ice can be all jumbled up and messy. It's not nice layers that have been laid down sequentially over a long continuous stretch of earth's history to get a neatly layered ice sample like that. Scientists need to drill straight down through the thick icesheet so far the oldest ice collected that way goes back eight hundred thousand years. Gooch says the goal now is to drill down a couple of miles to reach ice. That's older a million to two million years old whether or not we'll be able to find it at the bottom of the ice sheet where we can recover a relatively simple continuous record. Is i guess. That's the sixty four thousand dollar question at team from china has drilling underway a group from europe. We'll start in november. What everyone wants is i-i samples that cover a key time period about a million years ago. When there was a dramatic shift in the planet cycle of ice ages. Those had been coming every forty thousand years or so but for some reason that pattern ended and it changed to every one hundred thousand years instead unto us working on climate. That's a really big deal. Eric wolf is a climatologist with the university of cambridge in the united kingdom. It's a really big question as to why that change is fundamental tower climates. Work in a way you could say. We don't really understand today's climate. If we don't understand why we live in one hundred thousand year will draw the forty thousand year world. The coronavirus pandemic basically ruins the arctic research season. That would've been happening now but starting next fall researchers will be backed down there searching for really old ice nell greenfieldboyce npr news.

Two residential schools in Canada are named historic sites
"This is national native news I'm Antonio Gonzalez to former residential schools in Canada have been named national historic sites as down. Carpenter reports the schools which represent a dark history are now being recognized as one of the events that shaped Canada to schools added to the official roster of national historic events are in Nova Scotia and Manitoba. It's the first time a residential school has been named in such a way Canada's environment minister. Jonathan Wilkinson says. Is Not, just about telling the good things. It's also about recalling the more challenging aspects, commemorating and understanding history not celebrating it. Perry Belgarde is the national chief of the assembly of first nations bell. Guard says first nations people still feel today the intergenerational trauma of the residential schools and it's part of our shared history. It's dark history of in terms of our shared history, but Canada and everybody needs to learn from that, and again, we've always said that those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it. The residential schools are described as a dark stain on Canada's passed the government funded church run schools were designed to assimilate native children.

Dr Burke said she's impressed with how Minnesota has responded to the pandemic using a data driven approach however burks says she's concerned with the rate of positive cases. The state is seeing in the twin cities and surrounding counties. This state has gone from two to five to now nine counties over ten percent. That trend is worrisome this late into the summer to combat rising cases burkes is urging minnesotans to continue wearing masks and socially distance during the pandemic.

Dr Brooks says fondling efforts and the efforts of tribes across the nation is a good thing to see given that native Americans are disproportionately affected by covid nineteen. Burke. Says Native Americans, who were already suffering from health disparities pre. Pandemic are more likely to suffer life threatening complications due to covid nineteen compared to other racial and ethnic groups nationwide across the United States. Still, the number one group that has the highest fatalities related to this virus are native Americans, and so really ensuring that we have continued to focus resources and meeting their needs you Minnesota about six hundred and twenty covid.

Minnesota's boreal forest is a climate change hot spot
"As climate change unfolds we're learning that warming is uneven temperature records show distinct climate change hotspots, and northern Minnesota's among the fastest warming areas on the planet. Minnesota's iron range and Canadian border counties have worn more than two degrees, Celsius or three point six degrees Fahrenheit since eighteen ninety-five. That's twice as fast as the twin cities and the global average of about one degree Celsius. How is that changing Minnesota's Flores Lee? Froehlich directs the University of Minnesota Center for forced ecology. Highly Hi, fall good to be with you. How quickly do force react to that kind of temperature change there already reacting the seedlings of Red Maple and Northern Red Oak. And a few other species of trees are already spreading in places like the boundary waters that is enough of a temperature rise that those species which are from southern Minnesota in central Minnesota are moving into what we call the boreal zone, which is the very northern part of Minnesota. Where normally it would be so cold that you wouldn't have anything other than Birch and Aspen and conifers like spruce, and for let's say I'm traveling up in northern. MINNESOTA. What should people look for to see the forest changing? Well if you drive the highway. From Virginia to Ili. Say in mid September. You will see a lot more red there because red maple has expanded quite dramatically there does that mean it's a less favourable environment for the coniferous trees also, we don't think so not yet. That hasn't gotten warm enough to start reducing the growth or to kill the conifers but we do know that if it does warm up another degree Celsius, we might start seeing mortality and reduced growth those coniferous trees when I travel up north I the a lot of these dead birch stands across northern Minnesota. Is there a climate connection there? Yes. There is a climate connection. Now Paper Birch is very sensitive in this case to warming soil temperatures in summer. So just the fact that springs are a little earlier and falls are a little later means that the soil has more time to warm up during the summer and you combine that even with mild to moderate droughts like we had several of between two thousand and two, thousand and ten, and you get a Lotta root damage do these changing forests affect our lakes in Minnesota yes. with fewer conifers and more deciduous trees. The chemistry of the water that percolates through the soil and end of the lake will be different because. The full edge when it falls off, the trees is less acidic for things like Maple and oak that would be for spruce and for so the chemistry of the water will be different. Probably that will lead to more nutrients in the lake and US in a small enhancement of the amount of algae and so on that what grow in the lake in your work as you look ahead, what forest trends will you be watching for the next five to ten years and beyond? Well, we'll be watching the sea of. The maples and oaks continue into invade. The boreal forest will also be looking for wildlife species like deer and Bobcat, will they continue to move in and replace Moose and links? There are also somewhat climate dependent So a lot of interesting things to watch for
