"An oil or gas well can keep releasing pollution long after its retired from use. When an oil and gas company walks away from a well that had been producing and does not plug it. In those can impose heavy environmental and climate costs. That's jason bard off director of the center on global energy policy at columbia university. He co authored. A recent report on inactive unplugged wells. The can leak methane which is a potent greenhouse gas into the air as well as other harmful air pollutants according to the epa. There are more than two million unplugged inactive wells in the united states board off says that together they emit as much carbon pollution as two million passenger vehicles per year. President biden has pledged to a program to plug many of these inactive. Wells boorda says this approach could create employment for oil and gas workers who lost jobs during the coronavirus pandemic. many workers have lost their jobs and are struggling and if they have a skill set that can be used to help the environment by plugging these wells. That can be dual. You're putting people back to work in a period of high unemployment until the economy is back on its feet and you're providing an environmental benefit.

"Welcome to coffeehouse shorts spectators daily politics podcast. I'm joined by katie booze and fraser razer. Nelson said today poros the berlin for his first meeting with a foreign leader as prime minister katy what's his mission and really succeed in theory. His mission is to get at brussels to renegotiate to abandon the backstop to move to a point where they can discuss changes and sorta brexit bill before the end of october something he said it's the likely thing it's a million to one that we'd have brexit. I think that's very big. Ask the meetings this week and the summit the weekend. We've we've seen since berge johnson rachel after two and head of the e._u. Cancel suggesting that backs of hatch removed entirely it did not land well in brussels. They quite quick steeping quite critical of boris johnson. I think with angela merkel in the meeting were boroughs. Johnson is trying to do is go to the leaders of the countries who often often seen as being more pragmatic than than the european commission because they ultimately will be affected. The country will be factored in an ideal brexit rolling trion try and make points about the backs which he will be doing. What are the key things. Boris johnson's team wanting to push is the idea that you will leave. A deal is prepared lavandier audio and will not be stopped by parliament now. I didn't even necessarily believe him and he says that but i think that is the message say shrine land riches. Don't think you can just not engage us and parliament will stop this because we are going to fight that and i think that's really the key message for these meetings of angela merkel and emmanuel macron because at the moment that just really isn't the sense. It's in brussels that not less likely end about tober. I think for boris is more a question of what he's able to do rather than what he'd like to do. For example the eased you cannot get through parliament. We know this because it's been three times through parliament defeated by historic margin so that ought to be the starting point that we ought to accept now. That's this deal. We'll never get consent from the u._k. So another deal is needed. The everything is that even if boris were somehow persuaded by macron and angela merkel. That's it was time to endorse the backstop. Even he cannot get it passed his party in parliament for a simple reason that there will be a general election sooner or later and the torchy's now needs to get rid of the brexit party. I think the presence of niger breaks party has changed a lot and the leading article of newspapers hater which comes out tomorrow we say none of the parties like to admit just how much has changed the dynamics perhaps sort of diluting or am delaying greg's. It might have been an option a few months ago. You might have to pass. Tori m._p.'s far harder to get pass now because they're all worried. They're going to keep receipts. If my jeff rodgers party springs back to life now it came from nowhere to be the most popular party in britain in the space of a few weeks since boorda's has come all guns blazing for thirty first dog to break that popularity has gone down but i don't think anyone's in the doubts that it was spring back up if if you were to somehow try to wriggle out of this so when he's talking to macron america i think it would be important for him to say look. I've got very little maneuver here. I am camden politically. I'm hemmed in and why awardee beebees negotiations is. I think that's the brits. The europeans talk across purposes the briggs years. Here's especially are very keen to thing. They've got to do a deal with us because it's within their economic self interest look obvious german carmakers bound to come around in the end. This is a very british this way of seeing the e._u. Like it's transactional as economic merckel understands. It's better working with the e._u. Primarily about his own political integrity it it would rather pursue a new deal breaks than be seen to cave in to the demands of individual members who were waving a baton of democracy around their heads so do. I think that there's a real problem. Standoff here is what we say him. Leading article standoff being the brits naively expect economic self interest to assert itself. The europeans naively expect parliament's do the work house stop. This and i didn't think either of those things are going to happen kate did you. The crucial points then that if boris johnson get into e heads that pollen counts of new d._o. Then they will change or were they still say actually. If you do go out with low sodium we'll just expect expected cruel back in a few months where the message she land where it to be true because we do need to see what happens in the first few weeks when palmer tans and bestrides stop nydia but whether it be proved to be the case and brussels to be convinced that parliament could not stop nato dating it. Is that a sure thing that you tadiran say okay. Let's governor the backstop up done. See where we go. I think you still have this point which is largely intrests the future of the european union only things taken to can but do do you think you might start to see some movement because you have had various leaders in european countries speak of the negative impacts of a no brexit on their economy and if the republic of ireland it clearly would negatively impact that country especially if you give them a forty percent of their exports to the e._u. Through england so any clogging up export channels in england will directly affect your islands yeah so do you think it would change the dynamic in terms of the current standard of he wants to call. 'em might make it more of a conversation. Dating berge necessarily get everything he's asking for but i think he would start to see a bit more pragmatism thrown into the mix. There are some. I'm who i still think would say well. Let's just keep pushing native because you won't be able to make a success of it. They might blink and m._p.'s could find a way we could end up general election ever main alliance could win that and then and the may not going to have this problem but i do think that is a clear risk ration boris johnson strategies who's waiting on the easy to blink mickey that no thanks and you end up with no deal scenario which is fighting getting increasing imports and to hear how the government fans to navigate no deal and and fraser when boris meets michael. What is she into say to him. Do you think well first of all. They will have a conversation. Theresa may never one having conversations of leaders. That reports of her dinner with miracle was really embarrassing. Massive periods of silence mean theresa may was notoriously bereft of any sort of small talk and even when it came into making relationships with counterparts. She was awful that as well boorda's will have better chat but this isn't really getting to know you visit ooh ten ten weeks to go until new brexit now the germans understand it think the brits are making a very big mistake of negotiating tactic. They eight like us want to deal. I think germany deserves a lot. More credit has gotten being a friend of britain through this negotiation for example the last time that we wanted to briggs extension extension to the thirty first of august the french roll up for demanding various concessions and it was murky lucid no new the brits week position. Let's not twist. The knife less has given the extension. Nobody thank miracle for that but i think that germany can be seen to be a country that wants with britain and these painful brexit exit possible but merkel's takes this that the e._u. responds very badly to what it regards as threats the if you go to the e are you saying. I want this and if you don't give me this. I'm going to do that then this instinct civilly. They'll just climb up the example. Germans users greece in two thousand fifteen dean. You add janice verify. The greek finance. Minister didn't want to take the terms the ears bailout that they were so angry the greeks but they held a referendum asking the greeks six g wants to take this e._u. Bailout terms. I think sixty percents of the greek said no so go back to the e._u. Saying look. We've got referendum here. Results here. Sorry we're not gonna sign up to this deal because of the public say no. You can't think of a bigger sort of democratic sticked wave about that but the e._u. Didn't budge in fact quite the reverse the e._u. Thoughts and was is logic to this if we give here then every member states can become try the same trick. They're gonna try the referendum the tried to believe we've got to stand firm so in the end various had to resign and the e._u. The greek parliament to approve the terms of the bailout deal so germany thinks it prisons is in the process as a repeating the greek mistake rather than trying to be humble rather than saying okay. I'm going to give away in this that and the other so please. Let's do a deal britain's saying hang up the story and just like you said parliament won't accept this. The people wouldn't accept this and you've got to give away and the germans thing that you used negative evitable response would be well. Let's see let's see we can get parliament to actually playthings our way in the same way that happened in greece now the most effective way of doing it again. This is german rationale is that boorda's woods negotiate with <unk> macron the e._u. and radka for people and that he would he would give some ground in other words he would say okay. I've demanded the backstop to be completely abolished but unwilling to compromise on this if we can get an exit close to the backstop a time limit to the bank stop in other words. He'll have to be seen to roll back and if he was back vanilla robak but the brits would have to move. I the germans think of the brits don't move. I isn't going to be an agreement and i've got a lot of sympathy with that. Sam analysis interesting katie. The son had to report today about what the sort of compromise might look like they actually. Maybe it's not so much compromise. The son is reporting that boris johnson might ask for ireland to stay regulatory aligned aligned with the u._k. And then for that beer doubling london deal do something might that might work in said island temporarily had the possibility of diverging judging from e regulations so i think as soon as his ideas floated you quickly had nathan has come out and say this is the nagoya disinfected by think tanks in the past is not something which brussels opened. I think the problem is this idea. I think the idea was republican. Items have access to both markets is the older of of it. You can't use a sable late. Why do they have this provide preferential. They're going to be more competitive us even though in and same european union and i think that's what you keep coming back to these various buderus. She's when you look to northern ireland having access to pay for something that was meted dp. He didn't like being different. The rest of the united kingdom for unions reasons not economics. Much is the fact that what does that party stand for. I think therefore anything already in terms of this. I i think it keeps going back to the fact bridges. The problem trump's is not it wasn't just this idea of the backstop. Were also upset. Various brussels figures was was the fact that he was very explicitly clear that he needed the reward agreement lab brexit deal you have to be a platform to eventually leaving <hes> <music> both the custom machine and the single market and exploring new markets which is something that they don't mike and i. I think that's from lots of these solutions. You want to call that are being put forward. Lord and fraser in other news seems to be doing something right as a new kantar poll today showed that the conservatives is fourteen points ahead of labor wise labor still uh-huh dragging behind say much well labor is being picked up over lebed m.'s right now the it seems that brexit right now seems to be causing more agony and labor than for conservatives because allegedly party members most of whom are our main are guessing worried about brexit nueva. They weren't two years ago two years ago. Okay we lost the referendum. Let's move on unless try and wind power never thinking no. This is the essential battle of our times..
