fishing tournament yes I remember that absolutely the mail it was the same fishing tournament that Michael Jordan just caught a four hundred and forty two pound marlin and I don't know so I know that he won three million but I guess it was three million in prize money in this tournament it was not because this guy said that he was going out of sol marina in Maryland right and this one was out of North Carolina so I'm not thinking it's the same one in Lansing I called her readers could be going to the same place and you know geographically is up in the same place I guess I guess I don't know if it could have been the same thing I mean of of multiple marlin tournaments at the same time I guess it's possible but yeah he took his lip if you spend eight million dollars on a sport fish yacht lying on the boat is unbelievable that Michael Jordan has yeah better bring in the biggest fish because if you come back to the marina with god's with that thing then you look like total smoke face now I was thinking that you know what I ask you guys a question of who you'd like to hang out as an active player as a non active player I think I the billionaire Michael Jordan I think I'd like to hang out with to be a lot of fun you'd have to be willing to take a lot of his money on the golf course because he says that was a lot of that part that hang out on that boat to do what he was doing yesterday and to be a part of that fishing tournament and out these these Marlins could get up to two thousand pounds the females tend to be bigger and these are you know they look you know there's daylight selfish they have the the the sale on the back end right Viewtiful fe I mean they are beautiful fish I've caught one down in down to Costa Rica off the coast of Cape house and they they fight the hell out of their lives the thing it's like the the golden groups of people who faces you know getting a marlin you cross it off the lists type deal right right you a lingering shower was back yeah they they brought it back to the dock and hung it upside down right well and then I yeah I was looking into this because I heard the guys talking about this for like what happens to the fish if you bring it back in and weigh it and all that that is really not a good fish to eat it's a very tough issue can make us do with it if you wanted to would not allow people eat it but I guess I'm a real guy no I'm not just I'm not a stupid guy I don't have a single guy at all I'm not a sort of stew I've had this conversation with my wife by any like one pot like stew or something like that and I I like it might be still like a really hearty beef stew in the winter time and then the summertime you know there's a it's not a stew it's a challenge like a clam chowder like a clam chowder that's a different story clam chowder is different if you yeah I always feel like this do or the soup is not enough for the meal like you if you have something like that it's like the appetizer to something else and also not a big fan of cooked carrots I don't like cooked carrots love it was good to know about colonel like carrots yeah but yeah but I think the sense of these big marlins' offer research is what they do if they don't so there are you search Marlins that's what they that's what I read in one of these because they I couldn't figure out the answer and they were at it Jerry said well last year later about what they do with the giant marlinspike I've no friggin clue what they do with these Marlins what would you do if you had like a fifteen hundred pound marlin on your on your your rod I wonder if you could I wonder I don't view today take a morning of your rod can handle for now hundred pound on my my ride could not handle fifteen hundred pounds what the what what is that like a thing called like a pound test or something like for the line yeah it was it might my rod can barely handle day to day life much less fifteen hundred pounds of fish let's get real what what test would you use I don't know I'm not catching fifteen under the art this is what I would like to tell everybody because it's very nice that the assumption is made that yours was that I because I enjoy fishing that I know the answer to every sort of fish question I go out into the crate South Bay and occasionally into the ocean very close to the shore right yeah for fluke and striped bass occasionally I don't have an eight million dollar sport fish that goes out to the canyons in the middle of no where in the ocean drop a line in and pulling fifteen hundred pound Marlins I don't I don't do that I don't go to a fishing I haven't done that I enjoy to fish I enjoy fishing but some of these things that these guys these big time fisherman do like I'm not anywhere near that type of thing it's how to tarpon I have caught a tarpon accord tarpon in the keys mostly are you are you are you are fishermen you're you're a senior you're all you're all in yeah how about the tarpon jumped in the boat in the keys when we pulled up to the spot never saw that before the incredible giant fish just as we pull into the fishing spot to catch some tarpon this tarpon boom right on to the deck of the boat starts flopping around meditech count as a catch now is the two thousand because you're not fighting the thing and it's fun to fight them because they they jump I when they jumped a point the rod right Adam and then hopefully you don't lose the face but I was able to bring it in but slimy is hellos tarpon so to get that part out of the boat it was like impossible part aren't most fish slimy right here but this is an extra slimy fish man hello the extra slimy I don't know either excell slimy but they are it's an extra slimy fish if you could hold the thing like a help but I mean I know triple can be extra slimy yeah we've seen plenty of them throughout our days W. hold the fish for a picture and then you're like you you put it back you are covered it's like you just in gross slime like something that'll like does like fish oil I don't know what it's like stormy it's just I would just describe it as slime I don't know what it is I know if it's fish oil I don't think I'm going to drink it or put an appeal for health benefits it's just slide it slime you want to get off of you as soon as possible because what is the record for a marlin do you know no idea do you are you do you have it do you do when I don't I don't have it I'm saying he could afford pound marlin which I'm assuming is big but they can the females can get up to like I think two thousand pounds that's insane I I just Google it okay in nineteen seventy A. eighteen hundred and five pound marlin was caught in Hawaii that's right Jeez that is I didn't know he got that big I.

"So leaving. I'm going to be leaving a bunch of legs for these wooden stools. I'm doing I'm actually. It's a weaver. It's a sponsored weaver video and and they said to me at a video for them once every other month and they said to me last month Aka for your next video I just do whatever you want but us a little bit of leather in it. We just don't it doesn't have to be a wallet or stamping or something. And so making these stools out of Walnut. And I'm using my new big lathe which we got running in only two speeds at a four. The speech don't work. They blow the fuse. Talk about that in a minute. So the late works beautifully. It has a low speed in a high speed right now so like I said. Speed one works two dozen. Speak three work speed. Four dozen so in speed three at work seem seem so great and the the most beautiful thing about this wooden lay that I have is that it doesn't move because it weighs two thousand pounds may other Fox Shop Fox laid. I never bolted it to the ground because I never wanted to identify like a permanent spot for it but it vibrates it moves around. I'd go to push on it in its shoves out of the way. So that's why I needed something. That was super heavy and it works great so far but like I said I did just the one leg and I'm dying to get into the shop to do the rest so so I know there's a bunch of different ways to pattern things on the lathe and make copies of stuff. I've never done any of them but I've seen several different ones. How are you planning to do that? Many of the same thing by Yeah straight up. Old School have the delayed. The Chisel rest for this. Lay this like thirty inches long. Because this big old industrial machine so the leg the leg lays completely across the Hanta Chisel Chisel Perch and on the Chisel Rest I've marked indications like at this point it should be one in five sixteen at this point. It should be one inch thick and over here. It should be so marked indications and so around it and then I'll go to those determine points and then I'll connect the dots between so that's that's what I plan on doing. There's GonNa be a tough like what you brushed your feet. There'll be a steel cuff on each leg. So that's really important because all machine. Those on the metal lathe so that cuff has to be the right interior diameter for all of them. They'll be a little variable but I mean I'll do my best to keep him perfect to the eye but perfect to the rulers of different thing so that one point and then the tip and then the top or plugs into the bottom of the the still seat that make those are the the critical measurements everything in between them. Just GonNa try and tape them so they all look natural. I'm sure I'M GONNA screw it up was GONNA SEE. I guess as long as you're really only getting four of them you're focusing on Ford a time getting them as close to each other as possible and then the next four. They're going to be close enough long legs on one thing. We'll the very first one that I did that I talked about that is going to be the master. I'll keep that right in front center every single time. I'll use that as the one that I make. Sure everyone looks just like that one instead because when you stopped that's how things mutate into the second or third one and use that as you master and then you keep going and then the lesson. It looks like a toothpick in the first one. Looks like a tree trunk like paying attention on. My measurement drifted a little bit. That's cool so it'll be fine. It's a good challenge and discipline. It's it is like a zen exercise and just like really paying attention to what you doing making sure night. I prepared like four extra blanks just mistakes so and just to practice a little bit. It's GonNa be it's GonNa be a be sitting in front of that lays until Wednesday night getting everything blue paired with a lot of leaving so it is. It is but you know what's good? I'll be really good at laving. Bunsen you'll be an expert expert later then. I could tell somebody it's not turning its laving. I'm an expert later and you don't use the word turning anymore it's changed. I've made sixteen legs. I know a thing or two about go right into well. That's cool. That sounds like a fun. Way To just focus on something and get a whole lot done.
Nature and wildlife, critical to our existence
"It's time that humankind realizes that nature doesn't exist for us. The head of the environment programs office in New York said just ahead of World Wildlife Day Assistant Secretary General Suchitra. Patty described twenty twenty as a soupy for nature warning that we are currently standing on the precipice of complete annihilation. He said there's seldom being a year. When so many critical meetings taking place which could help avert the devastation of the natural world? Mr Potty began by telling this graffiti about the new documentary wild Karnataka which shines a light on the rich biodiversity of that Indian state. I've seen the film It's amazing the kind of footage they have managed to gather through different technology including drone photography and others. It's not deterred by the legendary David attenborough and what I was very excited about. Was that it released as a mainstream movie in the theaters to full houses. Which gives you hope that people still have a lot of interest in wildlife and given the right motivation they would protect it. Can you tell us how the film undisclosed the importance of protecting the environment? Who START IT presents? The mega diversity of other life forms a nut and how humans relate to it and also it does it in a very endearing way that you really feel for them and that you feel one with nature and I think that's very important because human somehow have come to believe and very wrongly. I would say that everything exists for us and each year exists for us. The planet exist for us which is so wrong. Nothing could be further from the truth. So that is why movies like wild Kamata really bring home. The roots that we are just one of the seven point eight million magnificient species that inhabit the planet. And that we are to live in harmony with nature at is the link to land degradation while I think the land loss and degradation story is also the story of the loss of species that we are confronting a million species are about to go extinct tanks to human behavior and and much of it can be ascribed to land use and land use change and so as agriculture and advances in the Forest Frontier Receipts and deforest frontier is home to the wildlife species of the planet. They don't live in. Auburn spaces with. Urban spaces are primarily created for you once you might have an occasional bird or a b. here and there but that's certainly not their habitat so as we advance and our greed makes us take over more and more territory or not. The species are rapidly going extinct because we're taking over their habitat and that's something that really needs to stop. This is the Superhero for nature. We have the World Conservation Congress in a few weeks and then we have the nature summit that the president of the UN General Assembly is hosting in September in New York which will then be followed by the Biodiversity Convention Conference of Parties in-coming that China's hosting this year and then of course in between we have the World Ocean summit which is happening in Lisbon Portugal. So when you look at all these things that has seldom in a year where you would see. So many critical. Gathering off policymakers from around the World Civil Society Actors Private Sector. And what have you so I think this is the superhero furniture. So I think if all these can be major milestones in our commitment to conserving nature. And doing what is right for the planet not just for us. Because that's what has brought us to the precipice of complete animation and why we really need to change course and there couldn't be a better year than this. How would you say the sustainable development goals tie into World Wildlife Day? I think we need to understand the web of life that sustains all life on earth and is basically the story of the harmony in which humans and all wildlife exist together and that is why it is so important that we understand the importance of wildlife to our own existence even if we are very selfish even if we don't see anything else as being of importance just ourselves as being of importance even then we should actually recognize what does for us. I mean you take the example of bees. We have never sent an invoice to anybody. Dip pollinate every food that comes out on the planet and when their colonies collapse we spend millions of dollars backing them into boxes and putting them in trucks and take the case of interest rates alone. People are carrying beehives across the length and breadth of the United States just to get their pollination done and so it is time we realized that nature doesn't exist for us we would finish as a species and nature would go on it will heal itself it has existed for millions and millions of years without us though even if we are very selfish we really need to understand the criticality of nature to our own existence. And what can an average person do to support this? Being mindful being mindful off the natural resources. We use this to give you a little later which I concentrate significant at this point of time. The poor capita use of materials by humans is roughly thirty two thousand pounds for year. One human being. That's how much resources we are using. It is not sustainable and it cannot go on like this and by simply being mindful being concentrate and being respectful of nature. We can actually turn this around. There's a lot of things that we do can easily avoided. Take the case of food. Forty percent of the food that we grow is wasted and we keep talking about. How are we going to ten billion people by two thousand fifty? That's what I call false. Bindis you astor wrong question. The right question to ask is. How do we conserve nature? How do we improve the factor of productivity in the same land so that we can actually grow more healthy foods and you can sustain as many species? You aren't what would your message before? World Wildlife Day. I think the biggest message would be for humility for us to understand that we are one of the seven point eight million species that inhabit the planet. And we need to respect the right of other species to coexist alongside humans because even if we are selfish that's in our interest because that's what sustains the web of life is there anything else you would like to add. I think this is a time to act. We've been talking for too long for decades now and we have reached a very critical point in the history of our planet and how humans behave in two thousand twenty and in the next few years will determine certainly our fate and also the fate of the other species and the planet as well.

Racing's Drug Kingpin: Randy Lanier
"Let's get into the story of Randy Lanier the weed racer yes. Yeah Oh Randy. Lanier was born in Lynchburg Virginia on September. Twenty second nineteen fifty four. His family moved to Broward County Florida when he was thirteen. There were few things a good old boy such as randy loved more than pot. He would frequently sneak out of school just ahead to the beach and smoke smoke. Do by the age of fifteen. He was selling pot to his classmates. Even after he dropped out of high school he would continue to sell to his. GED Randy would say honestly. I didn't even think about it as drug dealing it was just a way. Okay for me to smoke without having to pay for Kumon tally. When did you first smoke? Pot Yeah Probably fourteen fourteen I think at that point I was too afraid of it because like there is on on my way to school. There is a tunnel that went under a freeway. Go through and like that's where like the the Estonians of the burnout so by smoke and they all kind of frightened me a little bit rightfully so they were kind of rough kids but I I it was never about that in high school. I thought like I think looking back on. It was pretty like dude intervene. Kinda like weird. I couldn't wait to smoke pot. Yeah Yeah I would've smoked pot way earlier if I were popular enough to have any friends. Yeah like years later I realized tons of kids I knew were smoking weed and they were like totally cool but it was just like those tunnel. Kids'll uh-huh scared me away from it is the first time I smoked was in college On top of a parking garage that was across the street from our dorm And of course like it was out of an apple. Of course yeah I think everybody's I Branches out of an apple and of course it didn't have any effect act on me and then the second time it did me and my boy tyler went back to our dorm room and we did freestyle raps over McNamara. She's a few hours. That's that's the way to do it. It was very sick. I mean when I was a kid like we'd culture was just so much it was just painted in such a different way. Yeah you know like it's fly out of lax with weed in your pocket. They were like we don't care some of these stores. La Look like the frigging apple store like men and it's crazy and it's like it's very convenient and you don't. You don't feel weird about buying pot but I feel like I definitely like missed out on like that. Like illicit elicit like. Yeah I used to smoke such crappy pot but the fact that there are people making billions of dollars off a weed right now and still people serving life sentences for possession national or selling is a huge problem that we should address maybe an another another day on another episode pats anyway it by the age of Nineteen Randy began working for construction company where he continued to sell it. Because he's not only a jug. Dili's Kinda just like a lazy like he's he jug dealer because like I don't know who's round man overtime it's clientele grew increasing the size of orders as well as prophets as sports illustrated. PUT IT in time. Joints turned into Baggies baggies. Turned into bag bags turned into bricks. rix became bales ails sales of a push. teed Johnston the BAGGIES. I can't do it slow anyway. Now it's hard. He's very good to the one thousand nine year. Old Randy drug dealing was the most promising opportunity yet he said. Let's just say I was definitely making more money. Then I made Neilan boards all day. I believe one of his last purchases on his first I just want to point out. How like good? This dude is at just sound clips. Yeah you know like yeah. Very romantic quotes. Yeah yeah one of his first purchases with his newfound wealth was a twenty seven foot magnum sports speedboat. He purchased for eighteen grand. Initially the boat was only. I used recreationally. He would jump waves and just you know cruise around there but before long an associate recommended he put that boat vote into quote commercial. Use like selling ice cream from the boat. James I doubt it. Oh I looked up these magnum votes This speedboat in particular is like so cool yeah just long as hell low fast. They're sick this guy's cool and and just like that Randy lanier move from being a low level drug dealer to a mid level trafficker in the timing. Couldn't have been better It it was the early nineteen seventies. It was a smuggler's Paradise Man. It was like the pirate days trafficking into the US specifically really from Columbia was still unknown. Threat that would soon become one of the biggest drug crazed sees in US history and a new exotic strain of marijuana called Colombian Colombian gold was being grown on Colombia's Guajira peninsula and it was beginning to flood the American black market. The arrival of Colombian gold fueled fueled a boom in America. Known as La Bonanza meeting. Better the mayor which loosely translates into the marijuana. Bonanza guys we gotTA Marijuana Bonanza Hands. Of course Florida was the best place to import such a large amount by the early eighties. About three quarters of the United States marijuana supply originated from Columbia Razi in his first mission. He he went to the Bahamas to pick up one ton of marijuana. So you're gonNA see like yeah I'm going to grab my boat to the middle of the ocean and pick pick up a ton of pot two thousand pounds a week it's crazy Randy showed up to these specified coordinates in the middle of the ocean and another other. Bigger boat would pull up next to them and the the we yeah. What's up guys like? And they transferred all the bales from the big boat into the whole of Randy's speedboat and then he would get the hell out of there all right thanks town to go back toot sweet right. I picture him just like wearing a cowboy like no shirt gene short. I'm imagining as not to become a in in the story from now. Yeah I think that's a good way to imagine This this technique was super common speedboats. Like Randy's were fast enough to evade the long long arm of the law and it wasn't difficult for smugglers to slip up the intercoastal waterway and hide a labyrinth of Florida swamps. According to a report one trafficker could earn a return investment of around one hundred fifteen percent so it made sense for randy to do this with a speedboat and naturally after you know I mean it sounds like this is like trying to get people to do it which they probably were you can get a return of one hundred and fifty. Why don't you come to this lunch at the Holiday Inn? And I'll I'll tell you all about a way that you can get up to one hundred and fifteen percent return on your investment with one Boron. We'll even Lisa the boat. Yeah very reasonable reasonable interest rates. Naturally ready was hooked. He did this trip. He did this kind of trip often. In spite of risks linear loved tempting fate eight and living on the edge of disaster for Kenny loggins lurk he had multiple close calls including one time almost sinking his boat as it was way down down so much by marijuana despite everything he frequently alluded capture by the US coastguard and received a twenty five percent. Cut of his delivery. Delivery seems like a lot. I mean he's taking all the risks to me. That's I guess he was just like a runner yes he wasn't dealing to the public anymore. Now he's there's like a guy from the ocean is a post mates for we. Yeah in a in a way. Yeah do you post Manson anymore. I use post meets way too much. I try to be waste free But you know sometimes you just you just want to pack of EMINEM. I know in one thousand nine hundred ninety six at the age of twenty two Lanier married his high school sweetheart. Pam uh-huh with her help. He opened a jet ski and boat rental shop near Fort. Lauderdale as a front to launder the money and present an air of legitimacy gene under the guise of a boat rental shop he soon purchased a sixty five foot trawler. I looked. I looked up with these are trawlers are basically really big boats votes There could be like recreational trawlers or fishing trawlers. Like just imagine a sixty five foot boat milk you can look it up Your you'll probably imagine the right thing. It's a big big boat with low. Yeah he got one of those with Got A lot of room. That's bigger than I thought. Yep Yep sixty five feet him with a boat this thing that is a thick composed he could smuggle directly from Columbia. No longer having to stop open meet a A mothership down to the Bahamas with each delivery he made with a sixty five foot boat he could smuggle over eighteen thousand pounds sounds of pot into the US that allowed sweet sweet dreams Enoug- soon despite massive quantities. He has now smuggling he was always smart smart about it. Never visiting import twice in a row. He would load up in the port of Santa Marta in Colombia and he would either doc in the US in in New Orleans San Francisco and sometimes bridgeport Connecticut Far Ways up the coast. Yeah I mean just looking at those three locations locations that's a huge spread Like some of those trips could take like a week. Some of them can take like three weeks to get there. You know that's crazy. Yeah smuggling muddling much like racing and comedy is all about timing Lanier loved loved the adrenaline rush of almost being caught doing something so illegal but he needed more one day while visiting an auto show that was taking place. Within the Miami Ame Convention Center Linear stumbled upon a booth that was sponsored by a local driving club. He immediately realized that racing would give him the high he needed and impulsively possibly signed up and that is when the racing career of Randy Lanier started in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight at the age of twenty four to the guys. I'm twenty six now. You don't even own one boat. I don't own a boat. Never smuggled shifts this dudes in his third career now. Yeah he started out as like get drug dealer. And he's a drug trafficker now owns a boat rental company. That's three and now he's like you know what man I think. I'm going to give this race car driving the try. It's awesome randy bought in nineteen fifty-six Porsche three five six speedster for seventy five hundred bucks and competed in the production class races at the SCC a southeast regional championships. Although he had no clue what he was doing he was a natural with each race. He proved drastically eventually winning the e production class in nineteen eighty at age. Twenty six. How old I am?

Robots, Not Humans, Are The New Space Explorers
"This month we're marking the fiftieth anniversary of an achievement that still inspires putting astronauts on the moon but as NPR Joe Palca reports another kind of explores responsible for much of the modern enthusiasm for space exploration look humans do still explore space the international space station is a remarkable piece of hardware but as amazing as the space station is excitement about it is relatively modest well you know since the days of Apollo the greatest adventures in space have been these robots that have gone all over the solar system Emily looked a while it works for the planetary society by these robots lacked while is referring to the various probes that have flown past planets moons and asteroids orbiting some landing on others like to Wallace's sure it would be inspiring to see an astronaut land on Mars but in the meantime inspiration is coming from NASA's Mars Rovers it's very easy to anthro pull more funny spam and imagine ourselves rolling across the surface of Mars I think it's really not a stretch to imagine ourselves in the place of these robots exploring across the solar system millions of people around the world of watched with delight as the six wheeled Rovers of trundle across the Martian surface snapping pictures and taking self please at the national air and space museum Matthew Schendel says visitors make a point of coming to the planetary exhibit this gallery is kind of tucked into the west end of of the museum Chanel is the museum's planetary science curator a prominent feature of the gallery is a large glass case containing versions of all the Rovers NASA sent to Mars starting with the tiny Sojourner rover that landed in nineteen ninety seven right up to the two thousand pound curiosity rover that arrived in twenty twelve people love to come and see the Rovers and really get a sense of what they look like up close and their actual scale now Mars has a mystique all its own so perhaps it's not surprising that people find exploring the red planet enticing but the New Horizons fly by of Pluto the messengers close encounter with mercury and Juno buzzing over Jupiter's polls have all generated great public interest and Lindy Elkins Tanton of Arizona State University says the public's appetite for space exploration goes beyond the familiar bits of the solar system alcon Stanton is lead scientist on a mission to a weird asteroid known as psyche it's weird because psyche is made entirely of metal the only asteroid like it in our solar system true most people haven't heard of psyche but Elkin Stanton says when they learn about it they're hooked we're sending this probe to place that is absolutely uninhabitable in an earth kind of sense and yet the engagement we're getting from the public already two years before launch is profound all content and says she and her team are inviting the public to explore psyche with them we're gonna be sending the images that we get out on to the internet for everyone in the world to see within a half hour of our receiving them so everyone in the world is going to see this crazy world at the same time and we can all scratch our heads together the idea of sharing the experience of space missions is something NASA has embraced Emily lacked Wallace says the public has been able to see the passion and commitment of the scientists who work on these robotic explorers she points to the day NASA decided to end the Cassini mission to Saturn by sending the probe into the planet's atmosphere where it burned up there are cameras on the scientists and engineers who were weeping openly at the end of the spacecraft really humanize the mission and so it made that human connection that maybe in the past you only got through astronauts now you recognize that robotic exploration is human exploration it's just that the humans are back on earth and the robots are going where humans can't currently go Joe Palca
What we don't know about polar ice melt
"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. What don't we know about the rate of polar ice melt? I'm MPR chief meteorologist Paul Kutner. This is climate cast. It's a critical wildcard in projecting sea level rise and climate change impacts, just how quickly will the polar ice sheets melt as earth's climate warms Lawrence Padma is with earth and space research. He specializes in Antarctic ice science at the moment, the loss of Antarctic ISIS, accelerating of time. So about twenty thirty years ago, it was fairly close to inbalance, and now there's more being lost than is being gained how good of a handle do we have on metrics on measuring the actual rate of ice loss on the shelf in Antarctica, but doing pretty well. Now, the satellites have been up for about twenty five years. And so we're starting to see how the height of the ice shelves and the ice sheets can change over that time we hear about historically, that there are possible lag times in previous climate warm periods for melting ice in the antibiotic what are the mechanics at work there? It's quite a. A complicated process. But what happens initially is that if you take away and I shall f- than the ice sitting on the ground behind that I shall flow flow into the ocean more quickly. It's slowed down by friction with the bed that sitting on. And so it will excel right over a much longer time than the time that might take to remove ice from the shelves, and isn't it true that we've already seen some of that happened in the past few decades that we have a famous explorer here from Minnesota will stegar, who has crossed a I think the Larsen A N, B I shelves in Antarctica tell us about some of the changes that have occurred there. The Lawson I and the Lawson b I shells to that have totally disappeared in the last twenty years, or so they disappeared largely because the air above them, woma, the ice shelves that we're looking at elsewhere in Antarctica are mostly thinning because of what the oceans are doing as we look ahead Laurie. What wildcards are out there. For projecting future, ice melt and sea level rise. That's an excellent question, probably the biggest wildcard is that we don't really have a good handle on how the different pots of the climate system worked together. So if you're down in Antarctica and you understand how the sea level rise or how I she will change you have to understand the physics of the ice shelf. You have to understand the physics of the sea ice, and the ocean. And also how the atmosphere will change in future climate and these things role working together at the same time making it very complicated system to study Laurie. Padma n- with earth and space research. Thanks for your perspective today. Thank you. Many MS amber Brooks. I'm the natural blue. Mount state park for the Minnesota department of natural resources. So as climate change progresses. And as we get warmer, bisons body sizes, actually get smaller. We found that, that relationship happens. Sophie looked back at the evolutionary record bison. Use actually be much larger animals than they are now currently a male bison is about two thousand pounds females about one thousand five hundred. We're looking at a rise of even a couple of degrees. Those bison are going to lose some of that weight. They're going to become smaller. They're going to be more. Compact, my job is all about giving the people of Minnesota. The opportunity to see the same animal that their ancestors, saw I want you to see the same thing, my grandpa, and my great grandpa, Macri grandpa, and I can't show that to you. If I can't show you a two thousand pound male bison. So climate change is very important to me when we're talking about our bison and the effects that it's going to have on these wildlife, because even though we can look at the effects on us lotta times, we forget. That these animals were here. First repair Lee have any bison left we're fighting tooth and nail to keep that we only have one percent of our prairies left praise. The only place bison can live and now with climate change were couldn't lose these animals in the state that they're in, they're going to be smaller. We may lose them to heat stress through death. This is kind of our American animal. So it's very important to me. That's climate cast with thanks to climate generations talk climate institute. I'm NPR chief meteorologist Paul hunter.

But also, I've I've heard in the past the lack of sidewalks can factor into this to sidewalks are very important for pedestrian safety is street lighting at night. So there are a number of infrastructure issues that are essential to protect pedestrians walking at night people very vulnerable. We're no match on foot for a two thousand pound vehicle. And so every effort has to be made to identify a roadway features. That can enhance pedestrian safety keeping in mind, though, that it takes a very long time to modify the infrastructure. Some of the more promising approaches are focusing on vehicle safety features. For example, we're seeing in new cars, pedestrian detection, crash, avoidance technology. These kinds of features can be more rapidly introduced into the environment then adding sidewalks, although we'd love to see sidewalks added, of course, now more than a third of the infidelities happened on local streets.

So right now, dairy farmers are faced with this glut of milk. And while they do blame, you know, the almond milk industry on the milk industry for declining sales. There are other reasons for why there are problems with the milk industry and why we're seeing this glut of milk. So right now better genetics means that cows produce more milk. And so you're seeing this pretty drastic increase from the nineteen twenties to today in the amount of milk produced per cow. So cows in the nineteen twenties produced about four thousand pounds of milk per year. Whereas today they produce. Twenty two thousand pounds of milk, which is a huge amount.
