Water Justice - Actress Gloria Reuben, Waterkeepers Alliance
"I'd like you to meet gloria reuben. Who was a trustee of the waterkeeper alliance from two thousand seven to two thousand ten and served as an advisor to former vice president. Al gore's environmental organization called the climate reality project and on other natural resources groups as well you will also likely recognize her from her appearances in television series like er and marvel's tv cloak and dagger among others as well as in movies like lincoln and a reasonable doubt. Welcome to green captions radio glorious. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you for letting me join you. Joe. oh no problem. It's my pleasure my pleasure so let's start with. What condition is our water supply and today as president biden starts his first term as president. What is the water supply. He is inheriting well. I think we would all agree over these last four years the previous president did pretty much anything that he could to eviscerate our clean out air clean water regulations so it is very exciting last night to to witness our new president president. But i didn't as he signed the papers to rejoin the paris climate agreement and to roll back some of the deregulations that the former president clearly. There's a lot of work to be done but that once. We have obviously a leader in place president in place who believes in science and who listens to scientists and who believes in climate change and listens to the scientists gusta climate change and who obviously is a great advocate for the wellbeing of all americans of all peoples that is definitely a hopeful sign the destruction that happened in the last four years previous to President by being sworn in cannot be changed overnight but Reliance as very proud very excited to be on the front lines of this. Very important fight to have drinkable swimming. Fissionable waters for americans and for people around the globe. As you said. I mean it's extraordinary when you can get two point. Five million miles of waterways being protected from from our local over three hundred and fifty plus waterkeeper groups around globe. That's a huge thing. It's a lot of miles. So i'm really excited to join forces again rejoined forces again with this extra organization and in a leadership role so is the did the rollbacks that the trump administration did did they actually result in more water pollution. I mean we obviously have the flint michigan situation but that was not trump. That was the governor in michigan. Right when you talk about pollution in the waterways that goes very much to industries like fossil fuel industries of course like factory farming like businesses corporations. That are allowed to just kind of dump their way store there By rhonette of of making things of manufacturing into the waterways when there's no regulation The clearly people can just do what they want at their own. Well not have to pay any consequences you know it all comes down to first thing which is reenacting these laws again. Going back in place and then enforce laws are terrific things to have. But if they're not enforced than what's also it's important to remember that one of the things that president biden as well last night was to cancel the keystone pipeline. Which has as many of us know has been an ongoing issue for years now. And if i think about it the former president were elected. That very well may have happened. Now i've been to alberto into the athabasca river. I've seen the destruction that's happened with trying to suck out oil from sand. It's not an easy process. Takes more gallons of water from the athabasca river to make one barrel of oil and that is destruction destroy not just obviously the environment but the first nations people that have lived on that land for generations. So it's a it's a trickle down effect if you will of Polluters of Whether they be industries or or again corporations or even individuals whether or not brought to justice when when when there's no law to protect people that lived in that area then it's a free fall and You know. I was a newly appointed just over two months ago so the lot to catch up on. It's a lot of information that i'm soaking up. And we can't wait to be able to fly again safely obviously in good all corners of the world to to meet in person a lavar extraordinary water keepers are clean water warriors. I want i'm sure i'm sure. So does the waterkeeper alliance have a checklist of things that they want. The biden administration. To do i mean are there. Water infrastructure investments Besides putting back in place the clean water act. i mean. We hope that's happening soon. But maybe you're disappointed. It didn't happen right away. What kinds of investments and specifics are you looking for from president biden. Yes well. I think you know as you mentioned. Clean water act course. Everything can happen in one night. So we're confident that that will be reassigned. Only shocks right. I know but go back to the industry. Portion coal ash coal pollution cola. Hashes is definitely something that needs to be addressed in taken care of again. The factory farming issue is a huge thing. Learn in this country. North carolina again. I've been to north carolina. I've seen those ways. They call the ponds or lagoons. They tried to make these names. Sound like it's a recreational place yet now. These are ponds at are made of animal. Waste that seat into the waterway. So that's definitely something that needs to be handled in terrific water keepers in that region. An area that are that are winning lawsuits against not of these factory farms. I think that You know the overall climate issues that Is a abroad umbrella. You'll and plastics. We we all know again. You know plastics Issue jim global issue for sure so clean water act coal cocoa factory farming. These i think are are three very big tangible things that that can be addressed. Well we can he can pass. He can propose legislation that punishes. And as you say enforcement is critical these industrial polluters. It's you know taking a page out of the erin brockovich book relay right but these things also and i totally support on plastic pollution. To get me started on that one will be here for hours but a lot of these things require congressional approval and even though the democrats biden's party control both the house and the senate it's by d. Tiny itsy-bitsy margin right. So how do you. And i know that president by misspeaking bipartisanship since the very first days of his campaign and did so in his inaugural address etcetera but washington is still gridlock. So what's your outlook for whether for example getting factory farming in any kind of legislation. You know control of it. Is that realistic. Yes i think so for. Sure i mean again. These things take time an in carolina. I just wanted to north carolina. Just specifically in that region aren't bringing they aren't litigating certain cases in terms of factory farming. When it comes to the government The legislation in two to be passed in congress isn't going to be tricky but i am the only way to stay in this to even to say yes to this to stay because this is a long term long time mission is to is to keep positive and to just keep on doing. The things that we know will work again. The positive aspects are yes. We do have a house in the senate. So that's a hopeful thing at you know. We don't know what the future will hold of course but for right now we have the majority so that means that and again you know. We have leaders in place who do not deny the truce and they don't make falsities in order to remain in power. There are those who do that. But you know our president and vice president

The 60s' Spy Satellite Helping Today's Environmental Scientists
"In the nineteen sixties and seventies the. Cia ran something. Called the corona michigan sadly for today's conspiracy theorists. It has nothing to do with the pandemic that we currently face or even other corona viruses like the common cold no it was a covert cold war mission. Using satellites to take reconnaissance photos of the soviet union with the aim of gleaning information about the large nation's military supplies and readiness. It was the first time satellite reconnaissance had been done from space and it took them and tries before it actually worked. Several satellites didn't make it to orbit others experienced camera failures. It was quite a feat at the time. Scientists had to figure out how to design a camera and film that could withstand the air pressure and radiation in space but in august nineteen sixty the first successful satellite past eight times over the soviet union taking twenty pounds worth of film and depositing it in mid air via parachute through the atmosphere into a waiting air force plane below the first photography ever recovered from orbit over the next twelve years and one hundred forty five missions. The corona program would take nearly a million photos improving in quality overtime. The krona program was declassified in nineteen ninety five and since then has taken on a new life assisting archaeologists and environmentalists in piecing together the history of landscapes and digging into many mysteries of our natural environments. We'll nineteen sixty may not seem like that long ago to some of us prior to the declassification of the corona spy photos the oldest satellite imagery most scientists had worked with dated back to the nineteen eighties at the very oldest. And most were much more. Recent quoting the new york times paired with modern computing the space-based snapshots of helped archaeologists identify ancient sites demonstrated. How craters left by american bombs. During the vietnam war became fishponds and recounted world war. two's reshaping of eastern europe tree. Cover often coronas sixties era snapshots captured habitats before humans dramatically none dated paved over plowed up or developed wild species into new cities hydroelectric dams farmland or industrial zones. The images even challenged our assumptions about untouched. Ecosystems revealing more than once that presumed old growth forests are actually younger than seventy years old and quotes harvard archaeologist. Jason calls them quote the best military tax payer funded success that no one knows about end quotes but for how much they're assisting scientists now. Their usage to provide insights on environmental. Matters is not unprecedented. In fact it was being done in secret within the walls of the cia itself starting just a few years before. The corona program was declassified. Thanks to the guiding hand of scientists. Linda zoll and a well-timed letter from vice president. Al gore zone was already working with the cia in nineteen ninety one when the soviet union collapsed as a liaison between the cia and washington secret team of elite scientists. The jason's with the fall of the soviet union all spy programs and resources were being reconsidered zoll pushed for the satellites to be maintained for environmental study but it wasn't a popular idea but between a comprehensive report penned by all and pressure from then tennessee senator al gore this. Eia was finally convinced and established a large team with the intention of cracking many environmental mysteries using photos from corona and its later counterparts. Zoll led a team of seventy elite scientists as they combed through decades of photos producing hundreds of studies and reports on planetary shifts in snowfall blizzard sea ice and glaciers one of their biggest discoveries images that showed the extent to which the polar ice caps were retreating a prime example of the types of photos the spies didn't care about but which environmental scientists coveted the program resul named media kept up in various carnations through two thousand fifteen but has since shuttered in its place however are scientists around the world using the images from the original corona program and later images from medina to shed light on thorny questions across an array of disciplines and while it was slow going for a long time due to the complications with scanning correcting and orienting images more recent software has finally been developed to make the whole process go a lot more quickly and accurately and if you want to dig into the history and science of the corona program a bit more. There is a film produced by the cia at the time that you can watch on youtube. It's titled a point in time the corona story which honestly could be the title of someone's film about twenty twenty

"Millions of Americans about voting irregularities. I promise you come this Wednesday. We'll have our day in Congress. All right. So what's the likelihood that Mike Pence does anything other than what you just described announced The election results tomorrow as he is required to do. Well, we know there's going to be objections, which that's upper process where the members go to a private meeting and review the objections and vote about whether they are legitimate or not. But we're still expecting vice President Pence to finish the process and confirmed that there are no challenges from the states. The states they're sending. Agreed upon electors. The courts have rejected all challenges, so the assumption should be and he's not in a tough spot to make this decision that he will move forward with the process of voting in favor of this, But he may be running for president in four years, and he's in he may have to anger the president here himself. But by making this announcement publicly, what does it mean for him, at least politically in terms of his future? Well will put him at odds with a lot of members of the party who have either passively or actively supported this effort to overturn the election. But just because you face political pressure, like that is not a reason to go through with something that's fundamentally anti democratic. But you're right in that. If he's thinking of 2024, he's about to anger. A lot of Republicans who support he'll need well throughout U. S history. As you've explained, the act of certifying this vote is is pretty much been a formality. And there is no real likelihood that any where near enough votes are there teach Angel the outcome of this vote. But can we just play Devil's advocate? For a moment here, Julian what if Republicans controlled both chambers of Congress? How close would President Trump be toe overturning this election through Congress? Getting what he's been asking for? Well, I can't predict the future or a different scenario than occurred. But based on the way that many leading Republicans, including party leaders have supported this challenge under unified government, you could imagine this being a much more serious threat and that when the legislators went back into those private discussions That they might support a challenge like this, And I think that's the state of the Republican Party in 2020, and the postelection period has revealed this quite clearly. So I don't think that could be discounted. Yeah, well, here's how Vice President Al Gore handled the certification 20 years ago when he lost the race to George W. Bush after the Supreme Court. Stopped a recount in Florida. Let's Listen, May God bless our new president and our new vice president, and May God bless the United States of America. So that was not an easy moment for him. He had to gavel down members of his own party. You tried to object and who ultimately walked out of the chamber in protest. How do you think history will look back on what happens tomorrow and really what's happened since this year's election. I don't think it will look back favorably at where the Republican Party has moved. As I said, This is a non anti democratic agenda right now, and I don't think the way that the Republican Party not just President Trump has acted in the last few weeks will be looked upon. Well, the question will be Does the party change? Does it move beyond where it is today? Or is it so rooted in these kinds of tactics that it's just not going toe? Enter a new era anytime.

"I hope to be the the good news burner tomorrow. I've half again. Alex Stone, ABC news correspondent. Be Well, my friend. Take care. All right. So I found in Atlantic article from January 30th 2020. And it's written by a guy named Ronald Clain. Does that name ring a bell? Well, he was formerly a chief of staff to Vice President Al Gore and then formally a chief of staff to Vice President Joe Biden, and now he's going to be chief of staff. The President elect Biden and he wrote a piece called Corona Viruses Coming and Trump isn't ready. So this is back in January. I read a little bit from you, by the way, the phone numbers 80 88 10. Are you guys ready to shut down? You ready? And how do you do it? Is it? You know, I mean, how many people are gonna go despite the warnings to Thanksgiving dinner? How many people are going to go visit people over Christmas? I'm fascinated that people how people can just suspend there. There. There. There. While their disbelief Um and you know, or no, I get that wrong. They they're suspending their belief and then just going and doing these things. Let me read you a little bit from this Atlantic piece, because, um Ronald plane is is a is a really interesting guy. And this is so prophetic. He says the U S. But we all we all knew the moment would come. It could have been Iran and North Korea. Hurricane an earthquake and it may have been the new coronavirus set of China. The test trump whether he can govern in a crisis. But there's gonna ample reason to be uneasily skeptical. Whatever it is, he won't be able to deal with it. The U. S government has tools, talent and team to help fight the coronavirus abroad and minimize its impact at home. But the combination of trump paranoia towards experience, governor officials quote unquote who lack loyalty to him in attention to detail, opinionated rejection of science and evidence and isolationist instincts may prove toxic. When it comes to manage that global Health Security challenge again. This is January. Is this to succeed, Trump will have to trust the kind of government experts he has disdained to date set aside his own terrible instincts. Ah, lead from the White House and work closely with foreign leaders and global institutions. All things he's failed to do in his 1st 1200 days. We do not know yet how great a threat the new coronavirus will turn out to be on the one hand scientist of quickly sequence of Iris and working on a vaccine. China imposed draconian quarantine to slow the virus has spread and is rapidly building massive new hospitals to treat its victims. To date, The U. S. Has seen only a handful of cases all than the product of travel to China, not transmission here. That's where he was wrong. Much of it. By the time January, 30th came around was coming in from Europe. The Wuhan travelers had gone all around the world and started to spread it. Your causes for concern but not overwrought fear. But I'm now the hand There are worrisome developments model suggests the cases in China may number in the hundreds of thousands many times with the government reported perhaps a million or more people left on before the quarantines and could be spreading the virus quickly. And this is this is just a smart guy. This is not a scientist. Again, Ronald claim who is going to be buying his new chief of staff, writing in January, 30th of love of this year, other countries reporting cases of the virus among people who are not in China. Dream reports that individuals may be infectious before the onset of symptoms. And the economic impact of a massive epidemic in China on the global economy is difficult to predict. What will trump do about it? Trump briefly withdrew from politics after his birth. Her campaign against Obama was discredited, but his next big published was a virulent, xenophobic fearmongering mongering. Outburst over West African Ebola's back in 2014. His tweets back, then calling Obama dope and incompetent for his handling of the epidemic. We're both wrong headed and consequential. One study found that Trump's tweets where the single largest factor and panicking the American people In the fall of 2014. Well, he continued it and his tweets this last year about closing down and how people should be getting back out. His continued rallies that are super spreader events. He has won this Saturday that we're gonna talk about in a couple minutes that killing, Mcenany said. We hope my million people show up well. Million people are going to show up. But guess who's going to show up? Oh, yeah. White supremacist groups like Boola boys and proud boys and other people there to protest. Yeah. What's Trump is done, as has created a playing field for the virus. That was not just consequential. What perfect the perfect wrong thing to do. You could not have diagrammed. This is me talking that Ronald claim anymore. You could not have diagrammed ome or um, or efficient worst case scenario than one. The Trump Has has put together. He has people not trusting in science. He has people gathering together, He disdained masks and he disdained social distancing. He encourages governors of states. That are in the upper Midwest or in the West. Like Christy Nome, the governor of South Dakota to tell people that to be free. They will not give their freedom up. We shouldn't California which in the idiots on the side of the road Yeah. I mean, I blame the Republican Party for a lot of things, but not this. This is all on Trump. And their inability to stand up to him. E. I mean the fact that Scott Atlas is running the Corona virus pandemic. Um um, team It's a joke. He has no experience in infectious diseases or epidemiology. Who should be running that, Uh, Fauci. Anyway, I'm just kind of curious is to have you guys wrap your head around this thing. Doesn't mean I'm not. I'm not going to anybody's house. I mean, I will go to a grocery store, but I wear on 95 mask and then and then I'll pull up a ah scarf. I think this is really getting serious now. I mean, we're talking about 450,000 people dead by February if we don't wear masks, So what are you going to do? We'll talk to you next phone numbers. 80 88 10.

I was able to speak with him and the sexy justice films close up interview. So and that the person talking there has Donald Trump's face. He's wearing a very obvious wig. He's holding a microphone like he's a reporter. But you would think that Donald Trump had put on a wig and did a stand up in front of you know some random town and did an interview with with Al Gore and this was all done just through the computer technology they are able to recreate entire faces. They can recreate voices in the next few years. This is going to be a huge problem because you're going to see Maybe people like Donald Trump some things they will take video like this and have Donald Trump endorsing Kamala Harris in the next election, or, you know, whatever they're going to start. If you want to talk about fake news, this is fake news. And they can actually create fake news by having famous people say things that they would never say you could have the president Obama. Endorsing Tom Cotton in the next election. I mean, and people will run. It'll run on national news because if there is there's president Obama right there saying it, Of course he didn't actually say it. But that doesn't matter because the computer technology will Allow for something like that happen, So it's It's really scary. Some of the stuff that's coming down and I don't know that anybody has figured out a way to really highlight the fact that this is not actually President Trump doing sassy justice or it is not actually President Obama endorsing Tom Cotton or whatever, so something has got to get figured out, or we're gonna have a really problem.

There were moments, for example, on health care where he's simply rejected the president's untrue assertions false assertions that the president had made major policy changes and recommendations that would replace Obamacare. The president simply hasn't although he's been in office for years, and Wallace held him to that, but he didn't do it a lot. That might have been a good thing to do. But, you know, Trump tried to turn this at the outset a bit into a debate between him and Wallace, just as he did it the first primary debate in August 2015 in the Republican field when he started to soar on, he turned it against Wallace but more his then colleague Megan Kelly of Fox News. Hey, Trump to do that. I think Wallace didn't want to be caught in that bind. Here. We are, in the middle of a devastating pandemic, a lot of issues.

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.

The Chicago PD believed him from the get go until they didn't. That's how close smell at came here to to pulling this off. But I just I think overall the superintendent deserves kudos for firing back at this. The the way that the way that he did without fear of what the media is going to say about him without fear. What presidential candidates are going to say it, but he just took them all on. He just raked them over the coals, and basically, ridiculed the media entertainment people presidential candidates. You don't see people willing to stand up to people in public like this much anymore. There's a lot of cowering. There's a lot of fear, and especially of media, okay? Now onto Ralph now them the governor of Virginia who is becoming increasingly harder and harder to find in the drive-by media yesterday just to remind you we had a story from former Vice President, Al gore. Who offered governor northern atonement? He offered him a way out of the controversy. Now governor nor them has said two things that got him in trouble one that it's okay to kill a baby after it's been born. If the mother wanted to abort it, and that didn't get much of a rise outta too many people, but when pictures surfaced of Ralph Naw them wear black face that could medical school in a yearbook. Whoa. That's when people's tolerance limit was reached. And so governor northern have been planning a rehabilitation tour and a listening tour you've been going around the state to listen to what people think about black face of what he can learn about the fact that it is wrong. And then out of the blue came Vice President Al gore, former Vice President Al gore who said that Ralph northern can fulfill his racial reconciliation pledge by opposing the Atlantic coast pipeline, which Al Gore called a racist rip off. So a pipeline is now racist in the world of Al Gore gore said in an anti pipeline townhall. In an historically black part of Buckingham county Virginia he was on his environmental Justice tour, by the way, Al Gore was he said this is an ideal opportunity for the governor to say, I have seen the light. All he would have to do is to oppose promised to oppose the Atlantic coast pipeline and everybody gore assured him everybody upset that he had appeared in black face would immediately. Forgive him. Next story from the hill dot com northern cancels. I stop of reconciliation tour after student objection. But wait, but wait, I thought Al Gore offered freedom. I thought Al Gore offered penance. The Jinya governor Ralph Naw them cancel a visit to Virginia union university. A historically black college following protests from the students governor inaudible tweeted on Wednesday while I appreciate you union. Eight sixty five invitation to attend Tamaz chapel service. I respect the wishes of the student body. Lieu of my attendance album host the Richmond thirty four at the executive mansion on Friday to honor their bravery and courage. So bunch of students told governor northern they want any part of him didn't want him showing up at the Virginia union university, which is an all black college historically, black college the student population. One percent white one percent Hispanic one percent American Indian the rest is black. The Richmond thirty four that he's going to host the executive mansion there. A group of Virginia union university students who were arrested in one thousand nine hundred sixty for. They were arrested for holding a sit in demonstration ended apartment store in Richmond. So this segregated university has a bunch of stars from nineteen sixty who were arrested in a city in and governor know them as part of the reconciliation tour is going to host a reception. This would be like Barack Obama inviting Bill Ayers back to the Pentagon to relive the bombing. As part of the reconciliation tour. The student government president at v you you Jomon Phoenix wrote a letter on Monday, ignore them not to show up on campus. We're in support of honest conversation around race and reconciliation of our great state forward. We feel as though you're at tendons governor northern takes away from the significance. The thing that's happening. Here is northern supposed to be able to do all this under. The coca darkness media's not supposed to be covering this schools are supposed to let him in there. He's supposed to go on his reconciliation tour. But nobody is supposed to notice he's supposed to be invisible. That's how he's going to survive. This. So I don't know. He's gotta be wondering, you know, Al Gore promised absolution here simply by opposing gasline project. And where is that? Look one other quick thing. I'm not going to be able to get into details. But the the headline Obama quietly coaching twenty twenty democrat candidates behind the scenes, you remember when I said, I predicted Obama would not be leaving Washington that he would be hanging around. And whenever anything no matter who won. But especially if a Republican one he would hang around when ever any attempt to unravel any of his. Agenda items was underway there. He would make tracks to the nearest camera and start attacking it at the media would. Be totally supportive. Well that hasn't quite happened. But he has stayed in town. And he is he and Valerie Jarrett and some others are quietly coaching twenty twenty democrat candidates behind the scenes, I think something else is actually going on.

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 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.

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.
