"News. I'm Steve Inskeep. And I'm no well, king. Good morning. Making or mining Bitcoins requires a lot of energy, which can mean burning more fossil fuels. Now, at the same time, states are making a push for clean energy. So does something here have to give Here's von Golden from member station W S. K G in New York's Finger Lakes. No, thank you. About 100. People are walking down the shoulder of the highway overlooking Seneca Lake. They're heading down to the Greenwich Generation Power plant. The natural gas fired facility generates some electricity. But what's gotten the attention of the activists is their generation of Bitcoin. They're protesting today because Greenwich is looking to expand its Bitcoin mining that would probably mean burning more natural gas and emitting more greenhouse gasses. Yvonne Taylor is vice president of Seneca Lake Guardian and is leading the opposition to Greenwich. We simply cannot allow this ludicrous scheme off burning fossil fuels to make fake money. In the midst of climate change, generating or mining. Crypto currency is complicated. There's no actual mining. That just is that a whole lot of computers do ah whole lot of calculations to create digital currency that requires a ton of energy, which can mean burning more fossil fuels. And that's the case with Greenwich. The plant isn't always producing electricity for the grid. So a few years ago, they figured out they could make a profit by using excess power to mine Bitcoin. Hale Irwin manages the plan. We came up to that It was a very good business.

But then at second thoughts, Falwell tells NPR things remain quote up in the air. He is the son of Jerry Falwell, senior a pastor who played a leading role in making evangelicals a stronger political force in this country. Falwell senior also founded the Christian school that now as many thousands of students, Falwell Junior isn't a pastor but has run the university and is a very public supporter of President Trump. Now a former business partner, says he had a year's long sexual relationship involving both Falwell and Falwell's wife, Arum. Roxton with Reuters has been reporting on this story for quite some time and is on the line. Good morning. Good morning. Who's the former business partner? And why did he tell you? So we're talking about a young man named Jean Carlo grand off and he's been written about before because he wasn't business had been set up in this business that owns a youth hostel in South Beach. By the far Wells. They've put millions of dollars into this Utah. Still, he met them. When he was 20 years old. He was working at the font on Blue Hotel, and he said, that's where he met them on, he said he began a Intimate relationship with Becky Falwell and Jerry Falwell liketo watch their encounters. The relationship, he said, went on for years from 2012. Really until 2018. Why did he decide to talk to you know, he said that over the years, his impression of the follows has evolved substantially again. He was 20 years old when he met them. Now he's 29. He's older. He said that he's trying to disentangle and severed himself from them and that he is still at the same time involved. In this business with them is one of three owners of this of this business of the bones. The youth hostel. He's trying to sever himself from it. He says He finally wants to speak freely. What does Jerry Falwell Jr saying about these allegations? So Jerry followed Junior's attorney, Basically a CZ. We do report had denied the allegations, but had not given us an interview at all. And commented specifically on what we were asking Right before we were about to publish. Farwell issued a statement to a a small newspaper in Washington, D. C. And in that statement, he said that his wife had on affair with somebody. He didn't name, but he was clearly referring to Rhonda. He said that he was depressed about it to you learned about it later, he said. He said he was not involved. Andi. He said that he had been extorted. He raised the idea that he was being extorted by by this or he and Becky were being extorted by this young man. Could you give us a sense of the political significance, the public significance of these private matters? What is Jerry Falwell's rolled been in public life? Hey, had tremendous impact on the 2016 presidential election. I think everybody agrees because he was the first and the most powerful evangelical to endorse Donald Trump. Right before the Iowa caucuses. Another story that evolved we had Reuters. We did a story last year when we reported that Michael Cohen, the president's disgraced lawyer. And fixer had been the one who arranged follows endorsement of Trump and we reported that he did this after helping the Falwell's involving an issue of some racy photos. So in many ways, far well's been the object of curiosity for a couple of years. Now, Arum Rosten is a reporter with Reuters and spoke with a former business partner of Jerry Falwell Jr. Whose future at Liberty University remains in doubt. This morning, Mr Rawson, Thanks.
