Commoners of the New Forest
"I think it's fair to say that from a global perspective. We are living through uncertain times in particular. I hope is listening to this podcast. You're asking questions about what tweet where to purchase our food and how food choices are impacting the environment and world around us while sometimes these are complicated questions. What's what's been inspirational about? Many of the podcast conversations. I've now had is how despite the politics and complexity many food and drink produces uses are just getting on with it and making a big difference to their local communities. As this week's guest Andrew Barry Naughton puts it. What's on your doorstep is that is the most important thing once you get that right? It spreads from there now Andrews lucky he happens to have the beautiful landscape of the new forest orest literally on his doorstep as a commoner as well as a farmer his animals can truly range free through heathland and ancient woods. Sometimes they range a bit too freely as you will hear in this program. We explore the peculiarities of calming history. We also discover how and and even more fascinating Louis why we are seeing the return of regional. Native breeds such as Ruby red cattle and saddleback pigs `brava than the influx of larger continental breeds. It makes good business and environmental sense especially now that the communists have their own shed brand and the new forest mark in essence to support a more artisan kinda traditional approach to farming. Andrew needs to charge around ten percent. More Oh and supply more directly to the end consumer is this the way other regions could go. I very much hope you enjoyed this. Week's conversation. Andrew Carey Nelson Awesome. Thank you so much spare time on the US very much appreciate it here. It's all things go communist. I guess and farming. Can you just say where on planet Earth are. We pleased and we're in the in. The new force pistol. Kadam was founded in line in the middle of nowhere and it was surrounded by forests and we are luckily. Because 'cause it's pouring rain we all sat in your kitchen. Aren't we started out as very very muddy Soviet so he's not afraid poor cattle at the moment so so walling around the second good but it takes that mind space picks the reckon the sun picks lables out the forest so pigs and won't go very well together. They're lucky year so I'm a big fan of a new I. I love it but a lot of people listening. Probably maybe you've heard of it but not being here. Can you just describe the forest just a little bit. 'cause he's pretty. ECLECTIC has an escort ancient woodlands. It's got farmed areas. But just what is the funds very large area. Originally a lot people know sets. It's up by William the conqueror Purcell hunting area. But actually where we are sounds. We're on the northern combines. The pressure of the new forest so and we are actually what we call manorial. Waste the new force yourself was originally setup and that part of it was called Crown lands. That was part ten going for the crown mm-hmm but where we are at the moment the mineral ways we are actually owned by the Lords of the manor in this particular area we had Born to state which was part of course sustain it has the biggest site next to us big farming state and then another part of its playskool portions of state which again was another huge farming state in its time and Darcy's why sees winchester who owned track of it so the ground whale when surrounded by on the Commons. We are actually originally here before the existence of the new forest poorest before the creation by William the conqueror interesting. So how long does that William the conqueror showing me in ten sixty six. Okay so I believe the new forest trey to run about ten eighty four eighty six roundabout that things. So he's now the congressman sales assistance. Few people reckon two or three hundred years years before that date is well it comes will and I'm by when we say comments. They were used in essence four livestock even back then they were basically land. Minora waste the their Germany Germany. As a rule Paul ground is not suitable for farming so the topsoil was always very thin and all forms of small sel even some. The school houses had the brought them to turn out their animals on that waste ground and that that was drawn to him by the Lords of the manor at the time. The US okay. But it's not a great sounding name waste isn't it. If he told me that in this context it was like a tip. Says he doesn't really when you think you've just dry. It's absolutely stunning isn't it. If you'RE GONNA take place Iceland this is the kind of waste land to live in beautiful. It is it's the ground itself is is is poor is ray civic. Don't have its own sand and and it's very very thin topsoil. It wouldn't be much good performing any other way. Okay for across the new forest in its entirety. There are areas that are good for eight changes inches. Yeah you've you've you've you've got the the ancient ornamental woodland bigger some beech woodland you call the lawns. which is the areas across your orest echoed loans if got more covens in different areas of the forest as well? The Heathrow in itself is probably more rather than the Amazon rainforest. I really that few few acres of it well across across the UK. I want why is that unique and is now being given national accreditation as well. How long ago was that includes a few of probably fifteen years ago now? It's is passed even longer so they should be known fact checking particularly unique. Just it from from a country because it was the districts and stuff like this idea of communist kind of land. Is that something. That's replicated across the country. Yeah Dot an expo of similar. Aw I think the new forest it's thrived and continues a lot longer. Believe this seven hundred plus commodores in the forest and what we've done here is is much more unique to stick Leiria. You won't get anywhere much. THOUGHT IN X dot on wall up country so unique. I think it's something that remained within the families win the forest. Oh Oh that's not to say. Is that that somebody could purchase property-owning coming coming rights to it but this being families in the forest of carrying on the tradition really from from generation generation. And if I proud to be communists you know a lot of us have other jobs not just comedy see other people everyday jobs going out to work and just coming as a part time sidelines about takes quite a bit dedication. If you're if you're doing it part time it does take a long time and the benefit native of coming from the forest perspective. It's helping manage the ecosystem services a symbiotic relationship. Communism the forest. There's there's a lot of plum supermodel. I wouldn't be there if it wasn't for comedy. The comments and the forest was look anywhere like it. was you walk dog throat coming around that. So it's very important. That comedy continues. I think the National Park and other bodies realized read is that now for quite some telling and I've done the best to encourage comedy and keep going this new. Ms Organizations Remember the commerce this Defense Association and we're very proud of our heritage and what we do and we're determined the comedy continue so what we try and do today a set up things for the future to ensure cobbling still carries on doesn't now and the benefits of it. Then suppose are this is partly a financial thing. I guess is the rights to use the land for animals in the fat. I suppose. Pardon me what's the barriers of entry alone. 'cause you don't need to go and by far but in reality you do because you need to land. I didn't tell you though. I mean what you could do. I mean you're more tired of the government. Some Lancelot company wants attached to it pretends coming in that way it's coming. It isn't a straightforward simple. Maybe turning on Moselle you gotta you gotTa know what you're doing you gotta have some idea of of of your stock could conditions and healthy. I things develop things. Go wrong if if you don't keep an eye on your animals and you go into the the cost you're going to see them every day and that's called commitment going out looking for animals. Every day they could be anywhere. Just two thousand acres of land and go to find your animals and you gotTa make sure they're

"two thousand acres" Discussed on KFI AM 640
"Following in the KFI twenty four hour news room the wildfire near Marietta has burned two thousand acres and is just ten percent contained hundreds of families remain under the occupation orders and six school districts and canceled classes for today the fires caused minor damage to two houses nearly nine hundred firefighters from seven agencies were out there yesterday the flame showed up Wednesday afternoon following some thunderstorms in the area six oh five in St on the news right now let's say hello to ABC's Mona because our OB E. Mona good morning so the news that the Pentagon was shifting over three and a half billion dollars from military projects to pay for the border wall with Mexico is facing bi partisan criticism. right as you can imagine Democrats are furious about the white house's decision but even some Republic Republicans are stepping up we have heard from senator Susan Collins who said that she didn't believe the president has the constitutional authority to divert the money Utah senator isn't Mitt Romney and Mike Lee also said that the move was disappointing and a call for Congress to restore the proper balance of powers between the three branches so it's not sitting too well with Republicans and Democrats to know that their states are going to be affected in Utah about fifty four million dollars will be diverted in military funds to on the border wall so when those opponents came out and said Hey we don't support this it's not that they weren't necessarily saying they didn't support the wall they just weren't supporting the allocation of funds right and that is a clear distinction that we need to make that Mitt Romney does support the president's decision to use a border wall to secure the southern border he's not he's for the border wall but he's saying sidestepping Congress and diverting funds isn't tied to the Congress and diverting funds that were allocated towards military construction projects isn't the way to go about finding the border wall the White House says that the project will be put on hold their not cancelled but they're also relying on Congress then to back fill the funds that are being did diverted right now and that's not a guarantee because Democrats are as I mentioned earlier the furious and it's not a guarantee that they will be on board for that and it's interesting to see I guess the I headlined were the bipartisan split when it comes to you the allocation of these funds because normally you have Republicans staying pretty quiet probably fighting the battle behind the scenes for so for at least the three lawmakers to step forward I mean that's kind of a big deal. it is and it's interesting to see how they went about doing it you had Mitt Romney and Mike Lee come out with a joint statement and again they focused a lot on the national emergencies act and said that that stripped away a lot of power from Congress and we've heard Republicans say that in the past where they're saying that we need to make sure that the powers that were given to Congress remain within Congress and not not taking away and shifted to the executive branch and again they're not saying that they're against the border wall they're not saying that their car standing on either opposed to the president or just saying that the way he went about doing this they don't agree with but staunch trump allies Lindsey Graham said a Majority Leader Mitch McConnell they're sticking by the president which is interesting because for example Mitch McConnell in his home state of Kentucky fort Campbell a middle school that was supposed to be built there and deal with overcrowding at the base is no is no longer going to be built can be put on hold it's one of the projects that will be stripped of its funds interesting that in in this is all in the name of what president trump is saying is national security right. it says that that that's what the White House is saying they're saying it is a national sick it's a matter of national security Democrats say this is not about that matter of national security and that they're putting on the country's security at risk by stripping funds away from the military the Democrats are also saying Hey you Mister president you said that Mexico is going to be paying for this wall not the military and their families all right Mona thank you so much and have a great weekend thanks for having me thanks you later ABC's Mona because our OB E.. there you go in and eat you have to understand too that for these legislators that are coming out even the ones who are Republicans who do support the wall there they have to answer to their constituents so of course it's on one hand you look at it you go will it's totally smart of them to come out and go how could you take this money away from my state from my people from my constituents and put it toward the wall. on the other hand they have to remember if they're supporting the wall then the president's gonna come back to them and go how much was the funnest thing granted they could turn that flip the conversation on him just like Democrats are doing in going yet told us that Mexico was gonna find the wall this was never supposed to be our burden in the first place. so again this is gonna be just another back and forth but those are the people at least coming out on the president's side who are upset that their funding is being taken away from their military projects all right some of the other stories were watching in the KFI twenty four hour

sunglasses great visual okay here's a visual. there's a guy in Maine. he allegedly play dead to fool as landlord because he was behind on his rent. Ted's Aaron's afford can add reportedly fallen behind. so he decided to play possum when his landlord showed up to collect on August twenty eighth. the landlord gets there and it's like oh my gosh might make ten it's dead he's unresponsive. so he called the police obviously called nine one one. cop show up they expect they're gonna find at least at least somebody unresponsive on the ground now. there's Aaron's conscious and responsive and I guess what he wasn't in need of medical attention. one of the officers were there. weird they found there was an outstanding warrant for his Aaron's after he allegedly failed to appear in court with regard to a criminal threat charge. this guy is a winner. there is was arrested on the warrant and officers took him to jail. this one I I don't what. we had a debate about this this morning. okay I'll tell you what the debate was about after I tell you the story. if you are somebody who's looking to memorialize a loved one who's passed on you might want to contact this father son do well there morticians at Ohio Michael sure would and his son Kyle is spent years developing a special process that preserves the person's skin. and their tattoos after they die. they said they came up with the idea over drinks with friends shocking one friend had recently lost his father and told the pair he wanted his dad's tattoo preserved. servers they kinda laughed it off but then the friends persistence got them thinking. the art in the tattoos and how much they mean to people why not keep them after they die. the sun tiles those people but ashes in our inside mantles and visit stones of their loved ones with names on them so when I keep their tattoos so eventually. highland Michael launch save my ink for ever which is a business that gives people the option to preserve their late loved ones tattoos as a piece of artwork process takes three to four months the tattoo is surgically cut off the body at the funeral home within seventy two hours of the person's passing and it can be done I guess before or after the embalming it says the process does not interfere with traditional viewing or cremation once done the parchment of tattooed skin is framed as a wall piece for the family to mount on their wall in remembrance of a lost loved one. now here's my favorite line there's no maintenance you just treat it as you would fine arts. we've got a picture of a KFI AM six forty dot com he would wake up call if you want to see what the dead skin tattoos on the wall look like. on one hand you go a very pretty you walk into somebody's house they've got this lovely little piece of artwork sitting over there in a frame okay fine and maybe for half a second this was the debate in the office you go yeah okay Alex is you know when actually they're very pretty I said sure they're very pretty until somebody goes Hey where'd you get that butterfly. that's just uncle Joe. don't you worry is big nature lover. really. we come back we'll talk with ABC sherry prestin and speaking of nature I know I'm gonna **** you out with this loch ness monster story. you think it's all mystical and mysterious. now I think there's a really logical explanation. kind of sad what the mystery to keep going let's see what's going on with this trouble spots robin checking out on the E. it won't come up where it is I just. yeah and that this is a still a trouble spot in Pomona on the westbound.
What Happened at America's Secret Atomic City?

You'll also earn two percent cashback at grocery stores and one percent on all other purchases. Now when you go out you cash in what's in your wallet? Welcome to brain stuff. Production of iheartradio. Hey, brain stuff loin Vogel bomb here in September of nineteen forty two US army, Lieutenant General Leslie groves commander of the Manhattan project. Those secret US crash effort to develop the atomic bomb faced a critical decision. The project needed to produce uranium-235 an isotope of uranium who's unstable nucleus could be easily split trigger efficient chain-reaction and release enormous amount of destructive energy, but that would require a massive complex manufacturing process involving tens of thousands of workers which needed to be kept secret to thwart interference from spies and saboteurs. But the question was where those priscilla's possibly be hidden U S officials had already identified potential sites in several parts of the country, but all of them had drawbacks Shasta dam in California. For example, was too close to the Pacific coast and this Volna rebel air attack in several locations in Washington state would have required construction of long power lines to provide the massive amounts of electro. Needed for the work site in Illinois near Chicago was also out officials didn't want to be close to a big population centers since the potential health risks of the work were not clear, and it would have been easier for enemy Asians to blend in around a city. So instead groves quickly settled upon fifty two thousand acre. That's twenty one thousand Hector site in rural eastern, Tennessee later expanded slightly not only would it be inconspicuous to anyone outside of the sparsely populated area. But it was also close to hydroelectric plants operated by the Tennessee valley authority, which could supply the enormous amounts of electrically that the plans would require it was the perfect place to build both the Clinton engineer works, which would be the atomic complex and secret city to house the workers the government decided to call the secret city oakridge because it sounded quote, sufficiently bucolic and general according to an article in a nineteen sixty nine government review of the project, not long after choosing the area, the US government quietly started moving small farmers who had land on the site paying them compensation, but not telling them why then came trainloads full of construction equipment and building materials construction crews quickly erected the buildings that would comprise the nondescript we named campus as well as. Thousands of houses for scientists and workers. Many of the homes were be one flat tops, a designed fashion from prefabricated panels and roofing to save construction time building the secret industrial facilities and housing for workers cost around one point three two billion dollars. That's about eighteen point five billion in today's money that amounted to sixty percent of the Manhattan, project's total budget over the next few years oakridge grew into a community of seventy five thousand people. We spoke with de Ray Smith, a retired historian for the UAE twelve national security complex who also is the historian for these city of Oak Ridge and a columnist for the Oak Ridge or a local newspaper Smith explained people came from all over the world. Many of the scientists were Hungarians a lot came out of Germany and Great Britain. He explains that others were recruited for the Clinton engineering works by big US companies working on the Manhattan project who scoured campuses if US colleges and universities for bright students with needed science and technical skills. For example, a young chemist named Bill Wilcox who was approached by an Eastman Kodak recruiter in nineteen forty-three later recalled that he was only told that the job was some sort of secret war work. He said I asked where I'd be working. He wouldn't say it was secret. I asked what sort of work. I'd be doing. He wouldn't say it was secret Wilcox eventually ended up at the Clinton engineer works. According to Smith, those who turned down jobs might end up being drafted into a special engineering detachment of the US army. And sent to Tennessee anyway. Those atomic workers arrived at a place shrouded in secrecy, locals knew something mysterious was going on at the site. But only those who are part of the mission were allowed inside past. The guarded gates on the access roads, the atomic facilities themselves were surrounded by digital security. The work itself was highly compartmentalized. So that most people knew only about the small portion of the effort that they themselves were working on. And only a select few new. The overarching mission was to help make the atomic bomb access to buildings other than the one you were working in was highly restricted to keep information from getting out oakridge became a self contained community with most everything that its workers needed secret city had stores movie houses, a high school a Bank, a three hundred bed hospital, tennis and handball courts and even its own Symphony Orchestra led by a Manhattan project. Scientists people who live there tended victory gardens raised families, and led what was pretty much normal American existence. That is except for the secrecy that surrounded them in their work. A billboard reminded workers. Let's keep our traps shut. They knew they had to be cautious. Not to say anything about their jobs to anyone even their own spouses, a young scientists told one of the first reporters tried about the subject when Louis Feldstein would sit around the dinner table, and the strain was terrible. But it was all in the difficult effort of producing uranium-235. There's only a tiny amount of the stuff zero point seven percent in uranium or most of which is uranium two thirty eight which doesn't fit in as easily and above such as little boy. The one dropped on Hiroshima required. One hundred and forty one pounds. That's sixty four kilograms of uranium-235. You have to separate a lot of material to get that much to thirty five to solve that problem. The Clinton engineer works y twelve plant used special devices called Cal trans which utilized the electromagnetic separation process developed by Nobel winning physicist Ernest Lawrence, the university of California, Berkeley, the Cal trans used heat and powerful magnets to separate the two isotopes and then to collect just the uranium-235 isotope because it's so much lighter in weight together. Enough uranium-235 for the projects purposes, the y twelve facility employed twenty two thousand workers to run one thousand one hundred fifty two Kalua trans literally around the clock. Meanwhile, another part of the works. The x ten graphite reactor. Used neutrons emitted from uranium-235 to convert uranium two, thirty eight into an isotope of a different element. Plutonium two thirty nine another easily fissionable material suitable for making Tomek bombs as myth explains after x ten demonstrated that the process could work the actual plutonium used to make Fatman the bomb dropped on Nagasaki was produced in the b reactor at the Hanford engineer works near Richmond, Washington. Finally on August. Sixth nineteen Forty-five the world witnessed the results of the secret cities. Labor's when the United States dropped an atomic bomb containing uranium-235 produced there on the Japanese city of Hiroshima the Knoxville, Tennessee, new sentinels front page headline proudly proclaimed atomic super bomb made it oakridge strikes Japan that wasn't completely correct though, the uranium-235 came from Tennessee parts, the bomb were made it three different plants. So that none of them would have the complete design the destruction at Hiroshima and Nagasaki was horrific, and it was a or perhaps the turning point of the war. After the war. The various parts of the once secret, Tennessee, atomic complex were split up part eventually was reborn as the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, which helped pioneer the field of nuclear medicine present isotopes for use intriguing cancer and as diagnostic tools in addition to doing cutting edge research areas ranging from nanotechnology to wireless, charging of electric vehicles and other portion became the twelve national security complex, which produced components for tens of thousands of thermonuclear weapons in the us arsenal during the Cold War and leader helped disassemble US and former Soviet nuclear weapons third part is now the site of the east Tennessee technology park, though, there's no evidence that German or Japanese spies ever managed to infiltrate the Clinton engineer works. A Soviet spy named George co Ville did manage to get a job there. And apparently passed along information about the atomic work to the Soviets in two thousand seven he was honored posthumously with a hero of the Russian federation medal.

What Was the Emu War?
"The story of the EMU war. It begins after World War One. When soldiers returned home to Australia. The government was eager to show its support for veterans take land, the government said grow wheat, and we'll pay handsomely for it. It was a mission for the bright and hopeful for men eager to, cultivate, their futures as they cultivated the soil in Western Australia. You could say the plan was flawed from the start the government had ninety thousand hector's that's two hundred twenty two thousand acres to go around. But that wasn't enough for the nearly five thousand veterans who wanted it land was doled out as it became available and the choicest lots were given away. I the remaining veterans Gotland in Perth, which was not ideal for farming. What's more in the years that followed the initial land handout in the early nineteen twenty s Western Australia, combated drought frost and a significant rabbit investation while veterans labored against the elements and the wildlife mounting financial challenges from the great depression. Threatened to undercut all they'd been promised the trillion government had initially pledged to pay the veterans four shillings per bushel of wheat. But the Bill tied to that son was killed in the Senate another Bill proposing three shillings per bushel actually passed, but the veterans were never paid at last in nineteen thirty-one the wheat bounty act made good on the government's promised to pay for wheat at the staggeringly low price of four and a half Pence per bushel. Let's put this in perspective Pence equivalent to pennies a shilling twelve Pence into their twenty shillings in a pound in today's market one. British pound is worth about a buck fifty. So these veterans were being promised smallish sums of money to start and delivered way. Less originally promised a fifth of a pound per bushel and settling for just one twentieth of a pound per bushel ten times less than what was promised. However, by this point, the veterans were desperate to make money off their wheat crops, and the stage was set for modestly fruitful harvest, no one could have anticipated. What happened next in the analysis of history? There's perhaps no stranger Afo. The Australian IMO a flightless bird. The can stand about six to half feet. That's two meters. Tall and weigh close to one hundred pounds. That's forty five kilograms and at an even stranger battle of man with machine-gun versus giant bird, the giant bird one. But in warfare. It's essential to know the enemy, so let's pause and examine the bird the dogs. The veterans. We spoke with Eric Slovak bird keeper at the Smithsonian national zoological park, he said ammos are solitary for the most part. They do get together in breeding seasons, but emus would prefer to be by themselves. The exception is when their foraging Slovak lichens that behavior to humans going out solo to a fast-food lunch. He said, you're at McDonalds around lots of people, but you're not socializing. You're just there for the food. Okay. So they're big solitary hungry birds. Not much of a threat. Right. Multiply that Emilia envisioning by twenty thousand that's how many descended upon Western Australia in nineteen thirty two until a decade earlier in nineteen twenty two emus had been a protected species. After that time they were reclassified as vermin Slovak explained. They'll eat anything. They can get their mouths on without hunting. They're grazers. They like nuts and berries baby grasses, which brings us back to wheat yet. They'll eat that faced with a seemingly endless buffet of it. The opportunistic birds homed in on the veterans plots beaten down by weather at a volatile financial market. The veterans leaned hard on the government help us they implored so one major GP w Meredith bound up leading a military offensive against the emails, but there were a few conditions. The veterans head to foot the Bill for the munition Lewis machine guns were used in EMU combat and the veterans had to provide food and lodging for the men assigned. To this curious mission as a side note as cinema tougher from FOX movie tone, accompanied the military to film, the Email effort historians assume the footage would have been used in propaganda films to illustrate how the government was aiding its veterans, but spoiler alert the mission didn't go exactly as planned armed with the knowledge that had slingshot can take down an ordinary bird, you might hazard, a guess that a machine gun could wipe out Imos easily, but you would be wrong Imos are made to run and win shot out. They're going to panic and they won't move at any reliable direction and Imos legs had neck move with elegant fluidity while their bodies. Stay parallel to the ground Slovak explained the body looks like a wave legs. Good left. The head goes to the right, and they run in all different directions like dropped marbles Meredith and his men couldn't get a straight shot at the emus who stayed out of range of machine guns. Even when enterprising veterans justed putting them on vehicles and pursuing the birds as they ran the military wasted a ton of ammunition. Only. Two hundred birds of the twenty thousand were actually killed and not only the emails evade the troops. They destroyed even more farmland in the process tearing up the ground wherever they ran the veterans were dispirited and their land was devastated. Meredith had a lot to answer for why had so much ammunition been wasted. And was the effort, even humane. Then there was the matter of money veterans promised to pay for the IMO, but the mission ultimately failed could be forgiven. This example, ridiculous history. Can't be tied up conclusively with a tidy bow and some details such as who was ultimately held responsible. For the cost of the munition are unclear we do know that the veterans learned painfully from past performance that rifles not machine guns or the best way to handle nuisance EMAS. They continued their war in a one to one battle veteran against bird. And the Australian government later place to bounty on EMAS to help control the population. But finally, we do suspect that the FOX and Matale gopher gots epoch B-roll while on location.
For Georgia Farmer, The Trade Tariffs Are Personal
"Support for this podcast and the following message. Come from Comcast business having the nation's largest gig speed network was just the start. Now, they're providing gig fueled apps and solutions that exceed expectations and help businesses perform Comcast business beyond fast, the ongoing trade dispute between the US and China is clearly having an economic economic impact on both countries. But tariffs can also affect people on an individual level. Nowhere is that more apparent than in America's agricultural communities. Stacey van expense and Cardiff Garcia hosts of the podcast, the indicator from planet. Money spoke with one farmer whose livelihood is now on the frontlines of a trade war, David Reid farms, more than two thousand acres of peanuts and cotton here in Pinehurst, Georgia and his crop started coming in last year. He says it was glorious. Oh, yeah. We had this crop. We ever had in a few years. And then starting over the summer a couple of things happened. I a trade war broke out the US impose tariffs on Chinese goods and China retaliated with import taxes of its own among the US goods, it China started taxing were peanut butter and cotton, basically, everything they grow in this part of Georgia. Then a couple of months later this happened. Hi there. I'm Brooke Baldwin live here in Destin, Florida where we are covering the official landfall of hurricane Michael feel Ross. Sorry. I walked any. Any? Category with in prisons ethic. David lost about a third of his cotton crop and a couple of fields of peanuts to the peanuts grand there. That's what was last left after the storm peanuts grow underground like potatoes. And this field has peanuts all over the dirt. David picked a couple of. But they were rotten from all the water from the storm show was kind of soft Tim apart in his hands. See that was a good peanut when it came to just some we didn't get picked at the storm. He the peanuts and cotton that did survive walk straight out of a storm and into a trade war, China's peanut butter and cotton orders from the US collapsed overnight and the price that David was getting for his peanuts and cotton both fell by about thirty percent. And what had been shaping up to be one of the best years in David's entire farming career turned into one of the worst years Pete ever seen. You know, we we planned to make a lot of money this year, but lower see it. But hopefully, we don't break even break. Even and David says, he is one of the lucky ones, there's some foam foams just worried, you know, I've heard him help in say, I don't know if I most of I've this or not, you know, it's heartbreaking David says that the economic effects of the storm and the tariffs haven't just hit the farmers.

Burned parts of eastern Washington northern. Idaho western Montana and a little bit of British Columbia free million acres are about. Forty seven hundred square miles well there's a little perspective That would be helpful if. Anybody through in when they're, talking about clearly, global warming is making fires worse. Yeah the tunnel fire in. Nineteen ninety in the Oakland Hills wasn't really big it was. Sixteen hundred acres but lost twenty nine hundred structures in nineteen seventy seven the year before Mark started the.

Listeners who say you stop giving it in hundreds of thousands of acres. Give it in square miles I disagree a people can picture an acre people have. Stood on a lot and said wow. This is a great yard yeah it's an acre but nobody can picture square mile because you can't see. It to me unless you're, a gifted cartographer, something like that so anyway stop. Your kitchen thanks for the. Information is always good many includes some very handy in interesting. Information about California employee pensions so thank you Mark so Couple. Of things on the. Far First of all I think it takes a lot. Of the fun out of it if you're trying to make the global, warming argument, when you talk about you know a. Fire being the biggest fire ever and then, if in the top ten list you have some from the eighteen hundreds or, the early nineteen hundreds or? Whatever, really ruined your narrative right well and and you really don't even need to go there, if you, if you're talking about you know in the last, decade or two or. Even three the difference in temperatures Fairly subtle you know maybe there. There, have been a. Couple of, bad droughts but there have been a. Couple of bad droughts like every. Couple of decades Frawley, human history my wife watching the Facebook from high school friends and. All that sort of stuff that still live around where she's from that's, all burned, up most of it now she said. She can't even look at it anymore because, it immediately goes to anybody who votes Republican deserves to have their house burned, down you know that sort? Of, thing while because of the global warming belief in his humanity yeah it's pretty rough I, mean not, enough to do anything about it nobody called the, FBI on me but Human beings just amaze me it's just real quickly so back to. The subtle, difference in temperature there have always been droughts blah blah, blah that is not an argument that there's no climate change it's not even I'm not I. Don't intend it to be it's also not proof that there is climate change what happened a logic what where's logic is. Logic dead somebody poke. Logic and see. If you're gonna wake it up there's also as we talked about the other day if there are eight reasons fires are getting worse which I'm. Not sure, is that is that absolutely known that fires are getting worse is that a. Given, fact I'd have. To see, the data I I don't know as. Mark pointed out nineteen seventy seven, was Us newsletter it? Was like we'll never have a. Fire again the nineteen seventy eight was nightmare so I don't know Even, if they were if you're gonna. Listen eight reasons why they're getting, worse you know land-management this that? Restructures, blah blah blah on the list of things if global warming plays, a role which can you do anything about. Well if we try, really? Hard and. Somehow get Indian China on board we could change the. Direction, of global. Warming maybe fifty, here years right so right I'm, not sure anybody can do much. About that one yeah You know I find as I. Travel around Iowa that. It's? Usually young. People ask me about global warming geez how did she.

Hands and now, they're actually doing something running for the presidency and what can they talk, about Bill because these books are, coming and we can believe this looks like the democratic field I wanna turn, to? The Republican field? Which is dominated by the president of the United States. There's some recent polls at w a Wall Street Journal NBC and now the an, aggregate poll of Gallup indicating that the president's poll numbers which were ghastly are now merely ordinarily bad that's a. Trend however and within that there are a lot of details What do. You see in these polls that the Democrats will seize on these campaigners for twenty twenty launching books I think they will seize on they will probably take the bait and they will. Go for example for, the Washington Post poll which shows that about it Republicans did not like his performance at Helsinki and they will think that, the more they beat on Donald. Trump the more will disaffected Republicans. Discourage them to vote and they'll overlook two important things that your. Number one post Helsinki despite the raft of bad news. Coming down on Donald Trump's head and, some real Atlanta's things said about him committing acts of treason so forth Trump's poll numbers actually held steady he's. At about forty five percent of. The Wall Street Journal number the Washington Post ABC hasn't, done around, forty two percent Mike Weaver, collie rivers who pulls for Yougov and the New York Times also has some down around in the low forties. Trump's numbers just don't move much John he just used. Just he's locked in just? As Democrats are locked in against the more compelling number is actually the congressional generic where Democrats have about a six or nine, percent advantage I'm gonna raise something interesting here the smartest move for the Democrats might be not to beat up on Donald Trump but actually talk about their own message because they're in a position where people want to vote for, Democrats the house and moving Donald. Trump eating up on Donald Trump. Doesn't seem to do much in terms of hurting Donald Trump so. Maybe they need to focus on the road act what.
