Former Vice President Al Gore talks climate change solutions in the Twin Cities
"Former Vice President Al Gore comes to Minnesota. I'm N._P._R.. Chief meteorologist Paul Hutton here. This is climate gas. He's arguably the most important historical figure in expanding climate change awareness in America <hes> and the world his two thousand six film an inconvenient truth introduce climate change science and solutions to millions. His work earned the Nobel Peace Prize this weekend former Vice President Al Gore is here in Minnesota training twelve hundred climate activists through his climate reality project. He sat down with me at the event in Minneapolis Mr Gore thanks for taking the time to talk with us on climate cast today and hey welcome to Minnesota. It's great to be back. You know you're here in the the twin cities this weekend for this climate reality project training event. Why did you start climate reality and what does this accomplish well because I came to the conclusion Susan that the only way we can change policies in time to solve the climate crisis is with grassroots pressure from every state in our country from every county and so I decided when my first movie came out I used one hundred percent of the profits from that movie and the book to <hes> to set up the climate reality project and to mobilize Aisa thousands of people tens of thousands of people to put pressure on their elected representatives and business leaders and civic leaders and community leaders nice to to make the changes that we need to make let's go back thirty one years ago this Summer Nastase Dr James Hansen testifies before your your committee in Congress and he says there's a ninety nine percent degree of confidence for a cause and effect relationship between the greenhouse effect and observed warming? How important was that testimony in your path to climate change awareness well? I think that was an important moment. <hes> in making lots of people realize is that this is for real and we need to do something about it unfortunately in the wake of that hearing and the others that I and other members of Congress Health <hes> the fossil fuel <hes> industries took the playbook prepared by the tobacco companies companies back when the doctors and scientists say hey folks <hes> smoking cigarettes causing lung cancer or disease and they hired actors dressed up as doctors and put him on T._V.. To falsely tell people that there was no health problem at all well that same blueprints what's been used by the fossil fuel companies with the point of bring that up is in a healthy democracy where the truth was turned into power testimony like that of Jim Hansen you asked about would have led to dramatic policy changes reason it hasn't is because of the political influence of the coal companies the oil companies in the gas companies but we're gaining on them and these grassroots activists including an impressive number of them here in Minnesota are really making progress ars you talk about policy. You came within a whisker of the presidency in President Gore I like to think it would have been completely and totally different of course in our country. A president has to persuade the Congress Congress and asked to be a skillful politician and getting support for his or her initiatives but I like to think I would have been able to to put in completely different policies that would help to avoid some of this <hes> heartache and hardship and I still think we can do that. We've lost some ground for sure. Some damage has been made inevitable now unfortunately but we still have time to avoid the most catastrophic consequences so rather than looking back and crying over spilt milk as they say. I look forward and try to figure out what I can do to serve in different way. Just watch you give what we might. Call the talk talk at this climate reality event not that dissimilar from the one you used in an inconvenient truth but how has your presentation changed in the thirteen years since the the movie is changed dramatically in a lot of ways because I can bring up examples of floods or droughts or storms or whatever whatever not from ten years ago but from yesterday or last week and literally every night on television news is like a nature ager. I threw the book of revelation and the examples that illustrate all of what the scientists have been warning us about are all around us now every single day. I think that does make an impression on people I know it. Does it makes an impression on me. Yeah I WANNA get your assessment of where we are with the big big picture on climate change today. We're seeing the positive side rapid progress on solutions like renewables Minnesota here. We generate twenty five percent of our electric power. You're from renewables as you know last year. That's way faster than people thought it would happen fifteen years ago. Public opinion is shifting. We know that a little bit and yet greenhouse gas emissions are still rising globally and this administration is basically a wall or going backwards on solution so what's the right urgency level here and what's your assessment of how this plays out for the next ten to twenty years the dramatic truth is that those of us who are alive today we have in our hands decisions to make that will have enormous consequences for thousand generations to come. Tom and that sounds overly dramatic but it's the case. We're putting one hundred ten million tonnes every day of this heat. Trapping pollution into the sky stays there for a thousand years on average and it's trapping so much extra heat <hes> the amount of extra heat energy every day is equal to five hundred thousand or Rocha uh-huh class atomic bombs exploding every day. That's crazy but that's what we're doing. Now what I think you're getting at in the first part of your question is how do we see this. They're contracting interesting trend some good some bad <hes>. We're gaining momentum for the solutions but we're not yet gaining on the crisis crisis because the crisis is still getting worse faster than we are mobilizing solutions yet because we're gaining momentum we may soon have within our capacity the ability to gain on the problem there was a famous economists in the last century name. Rudy Dornbush who once said things take longer to happen than you think they will but then they happen much faster than you thought they could. I think think that it's likely to be true. Where are solutions to this crisis. It's taken longer than many of us thought. It would hoped it would anyway but. But I think that we're now getting to the point where it could happen faster than anybody can imagine to take one example <hes> when the cost of electricity <hes> pity from solar and win gets not only cheaper than electricity from Cohen Gas but way cheaper then no matter how much political political power the fossil fuel companies have it would just take a complete idiot to continue spending way more money than necessary to create dirtier and expensive electricity when you can have it for much cheaper when cleaner air and more jobs and I think we're right in that region now where we're going to see see this flip over and more rapid change. I hope that I'm not pollyannish or overly optimistic but that's the pattern I see unfolding right now. Let's talk about about how that seems to be happening a little bit. I mean if you look at investors. The big insurance firms Swiss re Munich REC- this changing catastrophic loss model we saw P._G.. Any go bankrupt <hes> because of the fire liability in California right. I mean some saying that's the I fortune five hundred climate bankruptcy. How important is this growing investor risk awareness in driving that positive change you talk about Oh. I think it's extremely important there was a story this this morning about the largest private investor black rock losing many billions on fossil fuel investments and they're still the largest fossil fuel in bed. I'm not picking on my in respect them a lot but there so many investors who are taking a close look at the fact that these carbon assets <unk> are really not that different from the subprime mortgages of a few years ago you know there were seven and a half million subprime mortgages meaning mortgages that it looked as if they were triple. A. Rated assets with a value that was based on <hes> false assumptions when actually they were worthless because they'd been given out to people that couldn't make monthly payments and good make down payments and there was a mass delusion and people finally pull pull back the layers of the onion enough to see the truth of it and they suddenly collapsed and that's what caused the credit crisis and then the great recession well. We've now got twenty two trillion dollars worth of carbon assets the reserves of coal and oil and gas and the stocks and these as multinational companies that are based on the assumption that all that fossil fuels going to be burnt well it can't be burn won't be burned not just because of some mm treaty or some law but because solar and wind is going to be much cheaper and efficiency is reducing the demand for what they're selling an electric cars or a progressively destroying the market for liquid petroleum assets and it's only a matter of time before they wake up to this the largest sovereign wealth fund in the world the Norwegian Fund which got all his money from oil and gas. They're really smart. They just announced they're going to divest one hundred percent for from oil and gas assets a so those who are taking the time to read the handwriting on the wall are coming to the conclusion that they need to get with this change and move onto into renewables and the sustainability revolution.
"vice president al gore" Discussed on C-SPAN Radio
"Began back in eighteen fifty one the president declaring the region disaster area to move necessary resources in place. Former Vice President Al gore warning that the time is running out after the release of a u n special report the gives the world twelve years to head off what it describes as potential climate crisis calling for radically transformation in all aspects of society. We'll talk to a Wall Street Journal reporter in just a moment about this report. But I the former vice president who spoke in New Delhi. India? We should point out that country is viewed as particularly. Vulnerable to climate change and is committed to reducing its carbon emissions eliminating it by one third by the year. Twenty thirty fifty percent of all the living species on this planet are at risk of extinction in this century. The coral reefs are already damaged and are at risk of completely disappearing and I could go on with the list of horrible consequences. But to some them up must we change. Yes. We must change. We must change we can change. I believe that we will change because it is the right thing to do. And because that is who we really are as human beings. Thank you. Those comments from New Delhi India by former Vice President Al gore and joining us on the phone is Tim Peuco who is following the story for the Wall Street Journal. I what's in this report. And how was it prepared? I think some of the key points of the report is that the effects of climate change your coming lot faster than we had anticipated even just a few years ago and the response in order to avoid the worst case scenarios is going to need to be even more dramatic than we understood just a few years ago. It's not just a matter of of moving to wind and solar zero emission carbon energy. Although that is at the top of the list of what needs to be done. But because of the way greenhouse gas emissions build up in the atmosphere over time, you if basically the what the IPC SEC determined is that if we don't also find a way to extract carbon from the atmosphere, and then capture it that even if we shift says euro carbon emissions energy that won't be enough. The IPC does kind of like Neta research, basically, they take. These are these are scientists government experts put together from all over the world by members of the UN. They take a look at all the best research that's available on climate change climate issues and and make their terminations their their assessments based on that with the Trump administration threatening to pull out of the Paris accords. Where does that leave the states, most, notably, California and others? California and a lot of its allies among the states are pursuing their their own plant there really intent on doing as much as they can to ensure effectively compliance with the Paris agreements, you the the whole we are still in movements. So a lot of those states they have a lot of allies among big metropolitan governments are still doing. We're trying to implement policies that that will push them towards lower Michigan energy more win where solar efforts to like I said comply. With Paris agreement. But it's kind of unclear I think there's still a lot to be determined about how this was forward without leadership from the federal government. We've seen a lot of companies step into and fury that could be a big help at moving the world in the direction that needs to go. But there are many many people out there who say that without government policy, especially from the US. There's those simple way to to reduce emissions as affectively as what's needed to to meet some some pretty serious recommendations from the IPC. We're talking with Timothy Peuco the Wall Street Journal bottom line just how dire are the warnings. From this UN report. We're talking about the loss of entire ecosystems and entire countries here, if their assistance prove true, and I think the big message from the reports is that they're all there are it's difficult to avoid that. It's almost impossible. There's no way the report itself says there's no way right now. There's no there's still there's no proof that we can scale the technology that we do have to extract and capture carbon in the way, we need to to to slow global warming the way that we would need to avoid the most catastrophic outcome. So certainly the technology is there we've made a ton of technological improvements in renewables in recent years, but the big takeaway is that is not enough that there's going to have to be a global effort to find a way to to even more. Than just stabbed to prevent the the worst scenario catastrophic climate change more details available at wsJcom, Tim Cuco joining us here in Washington. Thank you for your time. Great. Thank you for having me. On Wall Street. The Dow fell fifty six points.

California Gov. Jerry Brown casually unveils history’s most ambitious climate target
"But let's check in on California politics joining me from politico. One of the authors of the California playbook Carla Marinucci Carlo thanks so much. Good to talk to you today. Hey, good to be with you. All right. So governor Brown did something. I'm honestly, I'm torn on this one because I'm excited, and I'm I'm concerned about what it's gonna cost us. Huge new legacy Bill that he signed. Yeah. That's right. I mean, governor Brown again, you know, what it is really a rebuke to President Trump's administration sign that Bill Monday to great fanfare, basically saying to California's going to be getting all of its retail atrocity from renewable sources by twenty forty five. Now, you know, that's still a long way away. But the fact is he wants to send a message that maybe the federal government isn't going to comply with the Paris climate agreement, but California is and he said that they're going to go. We're going to go down that path. Even by the way. Signed an executive order that also direct straight stage. And she's to figure out how to make the entire economy of the state carbon-neutral that means transportation that means manufacturing that means a whole bunch of other things ether ambitious things, and you know, you you mentioned costs that is one thing that some of the opponents of this action said, what's it gonna cost consumers, and the fact is we don't know. But but Jerry Brown to say, look, this is a literally kind of a do or die effort that we've got to start addressing climate change in California really hasn't been on the forefront. Here forget gauge and intends to continue to to be on the forefront to combat global warming. So big move from Jerry bound on the eve of this massive climate change conferences starts tomorrow in San Francisco at Mosconi tenure. Yeah, I've been getting, you know, PR emails on that. Of course, joining me on the phone is politicos, California playbook Carla Marinucci, but this clogged global global climate summit. Of course, that's happening here. I mean, it's just that's natural. But what what is this kind of a summit when we're talking about climate mean what what is the goal. What are we gonna learn from from this coming up? It's a good point the news. You know, some of the critics are saying, well, this is just a show, Jerry. Jerry Brown swan song. And so forth. But the fact is you you've got some of the world leaders on this subject, including New York City. Mayor Michael Bloomberg. You've got former Vice President Al gore, who of course, won the Nobel prize because of his original, you know, warnings on on this Jane Goodall, you've got a number of celebrity types coming and a big CEO's like Salesforce, CEO Mark Benny off. And when you bring all these folks together, not to mention you're going to have a lot of protesters as well. 'cause there are a lot of people who were very upset at Gerry bound when it comes to issues like fracking and so forth. But the fact is you get a lot of these world leaders, and they're putting their heads together on some really complex subjects and trying to come up with ways in which basically states can go around the inaction from the federal government. So the California keeps sort of setting a bar higher on this and not just with the Bill. Signed yesterday. But you know, they looked forward to other ways they can contain greenhouse gases in California. You know, we've got some major issues here in California with the seat like the sea level rising. And we're going to have to address things like, you know, embarcadero. Seawalls and so forth. There are some issues that are sort of immediate and need to be dealt with. So I think with all these folks coming together, it's going to be all eyes are going to San Francisco this week when it comes to the issue climate change, so Carl I have a question for you. Carla Marinucci is joining me on the phone politicos, California. Playbook is anybody gonna ask how many of them flew commercial versus? Nobody's gonna ask. I'm not going to be able to be there to participate. But I this is something I it's hard core. Environmentalists. And there's nothing that ticks me off more than the ultra wealthy oligarchs coming and telling me how to live my life, and they flew a private jet, and it's just defeated the whole purpose here the lineup of Lear jets. Right. We'll be a testament even very very good point here on this one. And that is some big should ask in the press conference today. I will try to do that today. I am so sorry. I thought was tomorrow almost as we speak in San Francisco addressing a climate change group this morning. He's doing a lot of stuff related to the. So he is in San Francisco this morning. But you know, it the actual kickoff of the conference starts tomorrow. And yeah, you're absolutely right. I that that question does need to be asked. Because the oligarchs say here just through and it's like come on. All right. You want? I totally support making changes and all these things, but don't tell me that while you're doing something the opposite. I think that's an excellent point. I will make sure that to tell them that you asked I'm happy to by the way. I mean, you Lonzo already blocked me on Twitter because I asked hard questions. Is it really I think so yes, I would put it at a status symbol your badge blocked by. That's my little bio on
"vice president al gore" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM
"I'm Sean Carlson, New York governor Andrew Cuomo has repeatedly promised ethics reform in the wake of numerous corruption scandals in Albany during his two terms in office. But now WNYC has learned that Cuomo hired a lobbyist for natural gas pipeline company B's campaign manager this year. That's at the same time. His administration is considering whether to approve the company's project from New Jersey to New York the company also gave. One hundred thousand dollars this year to a Democratic Party governors association that was Cuomo on its leadership board my colleague Jimmy Floyd spoke with David Sirotta investigative reporter for the nonprofit journalism organization capital in Maine, which published the story in partnership with WNYC. Here's their conversation. David. Thank you for being here. Thanks for having me first of all his campaign manager, Maggie Moran. What can you tell us about her? So Maggie Moran is a longtime well-known a political operative in New Jersey and New York she's worked for Vice President, Al gore. She worked in the Clinton White House. She worked for Jon Corzine and Frank Lautenberg. So she's somebody who has a deep roots in democratic politics, and she had worked as a senior adviser for governor Cuomo's, a two thousand ten election campaign, and then was a top official at a major lobbying firm now called kit which lobbies for interests corporate interests with serious business before governor Cuomo's administration. So she's pretty plugged in. How about the pipeline company itself? Tell us more about what they're trying to build and what's the status of the project the pipeline companies, the Williams companies and. It is a consortium of conglomerate that had that is very politically active. It has given a hundred thousand dollars of money to the democratic governors association, which is in part run by governor Cuomo and has supported governor Cuomo's election campaign. The proposal is to build a twenty three mile extension of its pipeline into New York. The company argues that this is necessary. Because more residents want to convert from heating oil to natural gas and that needs to build out capacity. Opponents say that's not true, and that this would contribute to using more fossil fuels and that would be bad for for climate, change and the environment. And so the company has to get this approved by the Cuomo environmental regulators. It also has to get approval from federal regulators. Let's talk about the time line. We have a proposed project. We have a lobbyist we have a regulatory process, plus political donations. And now the. The lobbyists is the governor's campaign manager. How does it all fit together? The Cuomo administration has to decide whether or not to allow this pipeline project to go forward while a registered lobbyist for the company that wants the pipeline and overseas the pipeline would profit from the pipeline is now running the governor's campaign. What is the governor's office saying about all of this? Well, the governor's office will not comment on whether governor Cuomo's supports or opposes the pipeline project. A New York City comptroller, Scott stringer has called this week for a termination of the of the project the governor will not say whether he agrees or not with stringers request. They have said that it's up to the agencies that they are taking a hands off approach. They've also said that the governor did not solicit the money for the democratic governors association from the pipeline company, and they say that Maggie Moran has not lobbied. The governor on the issue antics and corruption have been longstanding and deep. Problems in Albany for years. The governor's last campaign manager was just convicted in a federal bribery case. How has that played out in the current primary campaign when Joe per CoCo was convicted on corruption charges the governor decided to replace per cocoa with a registered lobbyist and one that doesn't just have clients that are the pipeline client, but all sorts of other clients that have business with the the governor's administration. And so what it seems to be that the the governor has not allowed the corruption scandals and trials surrounding him necessarily to compel him to not hire. People who were connected to the influence peddling industry in Albany investigative reporter, David Sirotta. Thanks so much for being here. Thanks for having me. And a.
