"But even well off middle class well educated people with good jobs do better in more equal societies. They'd like be likely to live a bit longer. Let children would nike. Do a bit at that school. They'd be less likely to be victims of odd. In that sense we will do better and more ecosystems on ities absolutely laughing. Fantastic point now. Finally i would ask you having spent a career taking this tough subject. I'd say would are yoga. Mystical pessimistic future. I'm i have become recently extraordinary pessimistic about the possibilities of tackling climate change. I mean we've already got to one. And a half to grease rise in temperature will temperatures and we've had a double floods fires And rises in sea level. And the very best. They hoped for israel to stop the rise getting to one and a half degrees but almost nobody thinks that actually will manage to stop. It came game at least two degrees and away were gang. Now it'll be more like four degrees and that is absolute calamity. People have got used to thinking one and a half to is okay. It's not there already. Hundreds of thousands of people being killed particularly in poorer countries By climate change drought so that agriculture pack sample floods or fires and heatwaves in all sorts of problems leading to big flows of refugees. And so on who. The rich world is increasingly reluctant to take resists taking them I think that only problems would be much easier In a more equal society. I think that the as you saw in france when president matt chrome tried to put up the price of fuel as a green policy and the response was immediately The g. legion movement saying it's all unfair Months months of demonstrations city in cities all over france olo. This policy was still at that stage. Just proposal and micro eventually dropped it in the second world war britain historians of wool and social policy. Safe the top government felt that in order to get public participation in the war effort they had to make the button wall seem equally shat by enormous reductions in income differences reducing the social hierarchy having rationing so everyone had the same food-rations but it also extended to clothing and so on and i suspect that almost any serious policies to tackle climate change in most countries now will be opposed publicly And i think it'll take enormous increase in inequality at an equality before people say okay. We are in it together. We must do something about this The analogy with the war effort. I think is really important.

"Got a lot of change already on our doorstep And we also have an incredible toolbox of solutions and one of the big questions we face now is. Will we move those solutions for word quickly enough and at sufficient scale to turn away from the brink and away from sort of the the worst possible scenarios that we could face so your book all we can save holds up the leadership of women who are often overlooked in the story of climate change. There are the early warning system so many ways as as all we can save shows. And you're an expert in the climate crisis who also happens to be a woman. So we're going to elevate your expertise and your advice for us. So let's say all the nations of the world all the corporations just bow down to you. All right catherine wilkinson and your whole coalition that put together all we can save. What is our checklist. Wet wet. Should this planet do in order to save ourselves. So i think at the highest the task is really about coming back into balance as best we can with the planets living systems. And i say we. But i mean don society global extractive capitalism coming back into balance with a planet that is finite while we have an economic system that has been founded on the fundamental sort of insane belief of infinity. We had just keep growing and growing and growing and growing without end. I think sometimes the climate crisis is the planet's way of kind of grabbing a megaphone. And saying hey. Hey y'all this is not working this was never gonna work and it's now really really not working and so how do you do that. How do we come back into balanced. I mentioned the kind of the toolbox of solutions but we can think about them in some big clusters So the first thing is that we have to stop burning fossil fuels which means we need to be able to heat and cool buildings. We need to be able to access mobility. We need to be able to manufacture the things that we need all without relying on coal or gas or oil and there's a whole bunch of different technologies and practices that can help us get there including also just better design of spaces and places and cities what we eat and how we grow. It is a big piece of the puzzle so i mentioned industrial agriculture. It is right up there with with fossil fuels in terms of the damage that it has caused and so we need to be migrating particularly parts of the world like ours where people consume enormous amounts of animal protein. There's enormous amounts of unnecessary food. Waste shifting those things but also growing our food and ways that is regenerative to the soil which when soil is healthy. It's actually an incredible Storehouse of of carbon we need to be protecting and restoring ecosystems which help in so many ways including being really critical parts of the carbon cycle so when we think about electricity mobility buildings infrastructure food and ecosystems. That covers a lot of what we need to do. And that's obviously not a simple recipe and for folks who are keen to dig deeper in that In a prior life. I was Andrea as you mentioned project drown and the data on review is an amazing free resource that we published last year and it's available in english and french and spanish at drawdown dot org and it's a really great overview of what the sources of the climate problem are and what the solutions like.

"Seeing seeing the rally that would take place at downtown businesses on three corners. right You know before regular home games. You know. Not just for a playoff game but for home games. It was unbelievable. How at as a city Everyone seemed to rally around this team and connect. Everyone felt connected to something. Look i you know. Because there's no way for us to read through eighty to ninety to one hundred twenty pages of what was learned in this investigation. I don't know and i can't say definitively that you know the investigation What what was learned in the investigation doesn't match the ten million dollar penalty. i can't say that definitively. I don't think any of us can. It certainly seems like a very small slap on the wrist. It is the largest You know Fine ever levied against an nfl team by the league. But it still we understand what ten million means for these owners. And you know it's going to go to charity where it might even be tax deductible as i mentioned earlier so i can't sit here and say that what the league chose as punishment wasn't fair. 'cause i don't know the details. I do however think that the league messed up by not revealing at least some of this investigation and i will forever wonder and question you know whether or not beth wilkinson had more than than just you know this toxic culture and executives bullying and demeaning and the whole thing you know that one point six million dollar settlement and what happened on. That plane is still of interest But i also kind of believed that if the league really thought there was a true event that one of their thirty two owners You know perpetrated against you know A woman on a plane You know coming back from vegas in two thousand nine or whatever year that was i. I don't know maybe. I'm being naive here. But i think that they would have nailed them if they really knew that he had done something rather than it being he said she said or rather it being she said and it about somebody else on the plane. I don't know i mean he. I can't somebody else on the plane who works for him and his presence his responsibility smoking gun. You're right smoke fair point if something happened on that plane with somebody else and it wasn't him and he didn't you know let's just You know speculate here And he didn't you know come to her defense. And he didn't fire that person or severely punish that person will then he then he participated in it for all intents and purposes as the most powerful person on that plane. Now let me out. Apparently a lot of as i understand it The nfl and watching the football fans are putting a lot of faith. In ron rivera presence. Help change all this Okay.

"You know i. It doesn't fade away. It's always it's always there remember. Roger goodell supposedly destroyed the spy gate evidence. Right that's yob being a real curious to what happens to all this stuff. And i'll be real curious and lee better legal minds than me would have the answer to this. If any of these women With their attorneys or go to now turn around and sudan. Snyder in the nfl. And seek beth wilkinson's Information that she compiled earning investigation in discovery. And go to court for that. You know Stop on that. Because that was another question i had because i am interested in what lisa banks is. Goal is with the forty plus clients. She has but i want to go back to something here. So how do you think. I'm just curious and oral report on this eleven eleven eleven month long investigation was delivered. How did that work. Do you think i told you. I i know but you were being sarcastic. How do you think joe point. There's no point. Do you think there's a powerpoint presentation slides of this or do you think they said to her. At some point we do not want a written report. We don't even want an executive summary. We want to spend June twenty-seventh and twenty eighth with you over a four hour period two hours each day and we want you to tell us what you found and somebody took some. I like my. I know i'm being serious. I'm really curious because with any sort of an investigation like any sort of consulting project or investigation it requires a written. Follow up like. I need it here in front of me that i can refer to at some point. I want you to present it to me in person your findings but then i want you to leave me with the you know three ring. Binder of of one hundred seventy five pages of investigation may be proprietary to us because of the anonymity promises promises. That's fine but we need to have something but apparently there is no written. Nothing written on this. She had to put something together in writing to present it orally she just didn't wing it she she she put it down on something and went through it with them. I think it's clearly an effort to make sure that nothing gets leaked because remember. There was a leak. There was a leak to jason bishop at one. Oh six seven the fan when he leaked. That part of the wilkinson investigation was a recommendation. That snyder ba- forced to sell the team he had to pull back on part of what He reported which was that. The league already had that report which apparently it not but he apparently saw some of what was going to be in the report per a source. I think that they don't want of the details leaked and they don't by the way this is that they they paid for this or the team's paying for it but the league they don't have a responsibility to provide anything but this leads don't but it leads me to this. I think it's a bad move by the league in this environment not to have had Beth wilkinson provide the information that the commissioner in the league did in that statement. That statement could have come from her in a two to three page exact summary of the investigation and they could have said that. The details of this investigation include too much information that would require. The disclosed require us to disclose too much that we promised via anonymity. I think that would have done very little. Because no one would have bought that like fed. You can include that information without giving away identities. Well they could've they have said. There could have been too many connecting the dots for too many people in the media that would have unveiled some of the people in this and this is for their protection. There i'm not. I'm not kidding in my reference in how i think this went not that much because the less that roger goodell was told by Beth wilkinson the less he might if who some circumstances be forced to testify to and it's eh possession. What he doesn't know he can't testify to. What do they call that. What's the term for that. I'm blanking when don't don't tell me that a plausible deniability. Hey here's another question for you. What sir neil in rockville. This morning came on. Neil's very good at this stuff by the way. Congratulations to neil. Neil was the one that taught us. Neal was the one that told us that. This report would come out the day before. July fourth weekend holiday weekend now he was twenty four hours off but he said that In you know t set it to me. I asked him. When is this thing gonna come out. And he says i predict it will come out right before july fourth weekend. it'll be you know the last thing You know put out on the friday before that weekend. Now he again twenty four hours off but he had the right idea but he said something to me this morning in 'cause i asked him i said what is lisa banks whose with her law firm. You know forty of these women many of these women that were Were were questioned by beth wilkinson. What is her goal here. Because neil said to me that look these are sexual harassment claims. They're not sexual assault claims which means it's not criminal. There can only be a civil Outcome from a sexual harassment claim and there is statue of limitations on sexual harassment claims. And it's three years so they're long past in most of the in most of these cases of being able to extract money for this. What is her goal here.

"Something out on the linkage. Apollo from washington post pointed out In that was that the snyder washington punishment And recommendations were almost identical to what mark cuban and the mavericks scott back in twenty eighteen. Excuse me i tweeted that out. Ten minutes after the snyder news broke. Oh i'm sorry i'm sure. Let me let me let me rephrase. I wanted to point out that tommy tweeted something out shortly after the news broke yesterday. That made it very clear that the nfl took the nba punishment of mark. Cuban in the dallas mavericks almost literally to the description In all of the recommendations It was a ten million dollar Fine that went to women's leadership in domestic violence organizations. He wasn't suspended and then there was a list of ten to twelve you know. Hr recommendations and in-house recommendations that almost mir what cuban and the mavericks faced three years ago. Anyway continue. I pointed that out about ten minutes after the news. Okay but You know at least now. We know what the prices for rich white guys to commit sexual harassment. It's a ten million dollar price tag. So that's been established so when you walk in the door and you wanna you wanna treat women like second class citizens it'll cost you ten million dollars for most of these guys the cost of doing business. Well when you say rich white guys. These were fines of the organization and of the bosses that enabled that culture We don't know specifically whether or not dan snyder Committed sexual harassment Himself and in the case of both organizations. I don't know that the people that did or didn't were all white or or or not do you. I'm referring to the two okay. All right the the price suck the place of allowing a culture that promotes bullying demeaning and potentially sexual harassment and poor treatment of women is ten million dollars. Okay for the owners. The other thing. snyder's now fair gave okay. I mean before she was the You know the The much-heralded and deservedly so spokeswoman for the nfl's fight against breast cancer being a breast cancer survivor herself and deserve all the credit in the world. For an but now she's been dragged in and she's fair game for for anything. Now that happens with that organization right. Do you think that they think that maybe people will go easy on her. I think that would be a reasonable possibility. Yes i think they would. I mean we don't even know her which makes her eminently more likable. The dance nights yes. She's she's an unknown she's not with our automatically makes her puts her ahead of her husband. I have Requested the station is requested as well. either one of them as we have many times in the past and according to their pr department they are not being made available. Not a shocker. On they you know It's going to be a continued sort of reclusive Thing now it would be sheet. Certainly be a better face of the organization than her husband And i would imagine based on things that i've heard she is certainly more pleasant than her husband But i don't know whether or not she's you know Going to make a good co ceo of the organization. I good day to day operator or not but okay. She's fair game. She is fair. Game gates sheets vulnerable to the same criticism. Yeah i i would just suggest that in less. We know that she was involved in something specifically that she's not going to be the target of fans or media criticism because everybody's going to assume that she's doing nothing in that this is all a ruse and that her husband put her in the innocent victim. Category okay no way. I mean you can. I did not. I didn't say what i was. I'm just saying that until she is directly involved in like a decision or you know says something in a media press conference that we can pick apart. It's gonna be hard to think that she's actually calling the shots here. The other thing is For what beth. Wilkinson appears to have the final result. Of what beth welcome. It appears to have done the. Nfl has a has.

"Joe i mean i was about three billion short of what they projected in a normal season but still twelve billion dollars. And we don't need you we we don't you megyn show up. They'd rather have people show up but yeah yes they would. Of course it's better for business but they don't need them. Did you see the differences three billion. Well i think they projected fifteen billion in twenty twenty but before the pandemic and it turned out they brought in a twelve billion in revenue. That's not profit that's revenue I don't know what the prophets are. But i'm sure they're obscene Now getting read this part again where it talks about public embarrassment. That happened in the organization. Can you find that again. Hold on beth and our team performed their work in a highly profession. Okay The commissioner concluded based on wilkinson's review the commissioner concluded that for many years the workplace environment at the washington football team but generally and particularly for women was highly unprofessional bullying and intimidation frequently took place and many described the cultures one of fear and numerous female employees reported having experienced sexual harassment and a general lack of respect in the worst workplace Ownership and senior management paid little or no no attention to these issues in some instances senior executives engaged in inappropriate conduct themselves including use of demeaning language and public including use of demeaning language in public. Embarrassment okay just to show you that. It wasn't just women in the post stories. They made the reference of of their reported. That snyder had ordered Dennis green Who was in charge of the chew. Business operations president Been a former male cheerleader in college. I might want to point out. The washington. football team will now have male cheerleaders. Yes okay that he ordered green to do cartwheels for their entertainment And basically ridiculed His his. You know background as a male cheerleader. So it wasn't just this is this is what he does to people below him. Well everyone this is. Why i i noticed in this statement from the league. How many times the word bullying was used. You know because this has been really an issue of of sexual harassment And misogyny but the bullying applied to you know a lot of employees male or female. And that's the one thing. Well it's definitely the one thing much more than sexual harassment or even misogyny that i heard over the years about just what a dreadful person He was in the way he treated employees by the way the way a lot of the people that he hired sort of took that lead and also treated very people very poorly there. A couple of instances that some of us had at the radio station But i don't know one person that didn't immediately stand up and say enoug- you're not gonna talk to me that way But we didn't work for them. We didn't work for the team. You know we weren't paid by the team You know even though red zebra dan snyder's organization owned but one of the things we realized pretty early on is. He was very distant from the radio station. Never set foot into it. We never really had any communication with them and it was. You know a very much for the most part until the last few years sort of an autonomous kind of thing but we would hear a lot of stories. You know about the way people were treated. And that's the one thing on that immediately hit me and reading the league's Statement is just how much i mean. I think the word bullying is used six times in that statement And so that was the one hundred fifty interviews. I think the demeaning way in the bullying way in which employees were treated by various senior people was perhaps as much of an issue as anything else was. Yeah yeah absolutely and You know now he's going to be more involved. So that boeing will be less. I'm sure we'll boy boy did in that in that team statement. Did they compliment them. The other thing. I thought from the statement and from the team statement and from by the way the wall street journal puff piece from the other day They consistently are trying to get across through their messaging that the culture change started in twenty nineteen at the end of that year. You know when. Dan heard bruce say the cultures damn good and that apparently was the spark. It wasn't the post story It was they want everybody to know that the changes you know with the hiring of ron rivera were started long before the post story came out as if to say they recognized it and didn't have to be told of it. They were already recognizing that their culture was failing and they were already working towards fixing it. you see the twenty nineteen like beginning near the end of twenty nineteen mentioned multiple times that dan and tonya snyder started to make a series of significant organizational changes based on you know recognition that the club's culture wasn't wasn't good which was by the way apparently was a revelation to them At the time outlook ultimately we've said this before they have made a lot of changes and maybe the culture right now is the best that it's ever been because they've gotten better and higher quality people into the organization and they've let them do their jobs And yes the football conversation can be compartmentalized for me anyway. And i can talk about. And i can talk about how i actually think and i believe this that. There's more reason to be optimistic than there has been and maybe seven eight years since two thousand thirteen. You know following the twenty twelve season but I am always reminded Especially when i'm near you like. I was yesterday but even when we're just told general forty is as of the surgeon general's warning which is support this team at your own risk. Dan snyder still owns it. And so as long as you understand that going in and you understand..

"I don't know on what basis the league would have the right to do that. I mean they're obviously private corporation. They don't have to. But a lot of i would bet you. The problem with that is that there are several owners with confidentiality agreements in settlements with various things. So going one under investigation right now right for sexual harassment. Only one that has special investigator was assigned to investigate. I mean if we started looking under everyones that in the nfl it's gonna get messy with again. Is part of the problem here as well. You know it's it's it's it's a strange concept but We've always felt that. Nfl owners look at the and snyder and say if they can get rid of him they could get rid of me to god go. I'm just saying that in that statement from the league when they put in there that wilkinson was not specifically tasked with confirming or rejecting any particular allegation of inappropriate conduct. I think they're almost putting it in there to say she didn't have anything on the one point six million dollars settlement because that wasn't part of her Of the investigations responsibility or purview. I just i thought that was weird. you know but look in that statement from the league wilkinson or it wilkinson interviewed more than one hundred and fifty people most of whom weren't current or former employees of the club many of whom condition their participation on a promise of anonymity. She interviewed dan. Snyder twice Dan snyder in the club released current and former employees from any confidentiality obligations for purposes of speaking with wilkinson and pledged that there would be no retaliation against any current or former employees who did so And then The bottom line is is that the league said You know this was the goodell statement. I wanna thank beth wilkinson and her team for conducting a thorough and independent review of the washington clubs workplace by the way. I don't know if you picked up on a lot of washington club throughout workplace culture and conduct providing both the club in me with a series of thoughtful recommendations based on your findings beth. Inner team perform their work in a highly professional and ethical manner. Most importantly i wanna thank the current and former former employees. You spoke to beth and her team. They provided vital information that will help ensure that the workplace environment at the club continues to improve. It's incredibly difficult to the biggest insult of all right rich incredibly making thanking the victim right thanking the victims and then by the way going on to laud and complement dan in tanya for turning things around. But i just wanted to get to the final part of his statement The commissioner concluded that for many years the workplace environment at the washington football team. Both generally and particularly for women was highly unprofessional. Bullying and intimidation frequently took place and many described. The culture is one of fear and numerous female employees reported having experienced sexual harassment and a general lack of respect in the workplace ownership in senior management. Paid little or no attention to these issues. In some instances senior executives engaged in inappropriate conduct themselves including use of demeaning language and public embarrassment that this set the tone for the organization that led to key executives believing that disrupt disrespectful behavior and more serious misconduct was acceptable in the workplace. And then they get into the problems were compounded by small. Hr staff by the way. I want to just make this point before. I forget it. And then and then you you respond for anybody that read the post story Or multi both of the post stories and said a lot of. He said she said it's the post they have a vendetta the whole thing. Well this confirmed these lines from the commissioner in this overview of the beth wilkinson eleventh month long investigation. Confirm the post story basically. Yeah you're right that's a good point absolutely it. Hesitate to say it was a good point. You hesitated there. No no because i i was. I wanted to get off what i was going to say. Okay so make sure that. I pointed out that it was that that was a good point. the public embarrassment the public embarrassment reference. I mean that's snyder's emo with everything i mean. That's what he does. He publicly embarrasses the people below him enjoy that he gets off on that referred that for years. Yeah i mean that's gonna change all of a sudden and so war war involvement is going to change all this and that's that's rich the and we'll get to the wall street journal story but but the reference in that wall street journal embarrassment that He's going to be more involved. Then the nfl comes out with this thing. Where snyder is going to basically step away. Which is i if he travel. That's a good point right. Yeah in the if he yeah once he's going to be more involved and then the next day they say oh no. Don't you stepping away and paying attention to the big picture stuff. I didn't think about that. In the puff piece written by the wall street journal but it should have been more like the montgomery journal They talk about him becoming more involved because he's been so less involved and now he's stepping away to handle just big picture issues and she's going to be involved with the day today. Yeah good point. They can't even keep track of all their life. So i wanted i wanted to. Are you finished with that point or did you have another one. That was a good points. But i'm finished with that with that. Was that was a good point. I forgot i. Didn't i didn't pick up on that so i wanted to mention about the wall street journal puff piece which was an embarrassment as you so wrote in your column and set on the podcast from earlier in the week It really was an embarrassment That they essentially you know. Didn't push back on any of these things obviously. It was a bought and paid for thing. There were ground rules the whole thing. Well somebody told me And somebody just told me to look up the name of this person. And so i did. And i didn't know the name of this person. I missed this news but will missile brooke was hired on may eleventh twenty twenty one by your washington football club or washington football team to become the organization's first ever chief creative and digital officer reporting directly to jason right missile brooks resume includes recently being the global head of creative for custom content creative marketing and original programming across all platforms and consumer touch points for the trust the wall street journal barron's group and dow jones.
"wilkinson" Discussed on The Kevin Sheehan Show
"Okay i was trying to envision how this went down and i came up with this wilkinson walking into roger. Goodell's office with a hand cart full of boxes that have depositions interviews You know Court documents Maybe some videotapes fiscal evidence. I mean boxes of stuff that she had to bring it on a hand cart and she sits down in front of the commissioner and she says this there commissioner and he says before she goes on he says look welke see. You got all that stuff. They're just gimme the short strokes here. What happened was it bad. And she said yeah and he's fr- her again. Is it bad now. And she said no they said okay. How our job will just take that stuff on your way out and put it in the incinerator next to my door. Where we we get rid of all the stuff that could hurt the league. Pamela down the hall has a massive shredder. She'll be helping you with these books. He's full of depositions. Yeah i mean there's documents out there. There may not be a report but there are transcripts of interviews and documents out there so I mean and you know go. That's wilkinson. I wrote when they hired when the team hired her. She's a good soldier. She is an nfl lackey from way back okay. She's the one who stood on the courthouse steps and told reporters there in a concussion lawsuit. That the nfl never hit any medical information from its players so in the end she's going to do what the league wants her to do. So in a way. I mean i wrote back in when this all announced that he'll probably get a fine and And you know little else will happen now. you know. Given the time that they were investing it in it. I think some people hoped well there must be something going on. I mean roger said back in february that the report was about to be released. You know or about to be completed before. I got the super bowl week and here. We are in july. So i think the time that it took gay people. Some false hope that there might be something substantial. That will come of this and like everything with this football team. It's always false hope Yeah look i mean the goodell league statement you know went into great detail about specifics. But i thought there were a couple of things that were interesting about their statement number one In the opening or in the second paragraph wilkinson was not specifically tasked with confirming or rejecting any particular allegation of inappropriate conduct Really well she was asked to investigate allegations of a hostile workplace culture At the football team that included allegations of bullying and harassment and to make recommendations regarding that. So i would imagine in the process of trying to to find out whether or not there truly was a hostile workplace. Culture weren't there s- specific and particular allegations that needed to be investigated You know in confirmed or rejected. Hey this person said you said this. This person said you bullied this person true or not. I didn't understand that at all if it was specifically put in there to address some of the things in the washington post stories and other stories like you know the incident at fight night where The he said she said with dan trying to you know set his good friend up with one of the cheer cheerleader. Saying hey you know why. Don't you take them up to a hotel room or the the now very You know Famous incident of the plane. Ride back from the country. Music awards in las vegas which resulted in a one point six million dollar settlement with a woman who is on the plane who claimed sexual harassment They settled for one point six million dollars. We do not know the details of what happened on that plane but the settlement included You know Both parties agreeing that the team Do did not any wrongdoing in the incident on there's confidentiality associated with that incident and an insurance company paid off the one point six million. The team did not That means that the insurance company found that team Worth you know Whatever that insurance policy was to protect them against these kinds of claims They certainly found that it was worth paying out on behalf of the team because the team was not involved in any wrongdoing. So there's all of that you know which by the way was a big push from her to find out more about that. We don't know what she found out about that. Particular plane ride. There's been an effort by the washington. Post to unseal that information. But i don't know that that information will ever be unsealed. She got she got one point. Six million dollars Ultimately they did not admit any wrongdoing. We know that. And there's a confidentiality confidentiality clause associated with it. I think that that's i know that. But you know. But i mean that's a confidentiality agreement force. Obviously by the football team any owner. The nfl could have said to dan. Snyder you need to abso- like the part of the problem here is the nfl. Could've said to snyder. You need to to absolve everyone of any confidentiality agreements related to this investigation and all nondisclosure agreements. Which i call. Don't tell the truth agreements. You know The nfl could afford snyder to do that. Or will suspend you definitely..
"wilkinson" Discussed on The Kevin Sheehan Show
"I'm going to be watching both of the soccer quarterfinals today. I even passed on gulf opportunity yesterday. So that i could watch the to euro cup. Quarterfinal games I know that you can't wait for those tommy's with me i just mentioned tommy's name and you're like oh wait a minute there again. He's not with me in studio like he was yesterday but after the news broke after we recorded this. Show yesterday about the wilkinson Report and the results of it and the punishment if you want call that A levied by the league against Against the football team. I asked tommy to join me on the show today. By the way subscribe doesn't cost you anything in please rate us and reviews if you haven't done that Some of you have asked why. I asked that all the time. We're doing very well and we're pleased with you know all of our advertisers and we are pleased with the number of people that are listening to this podcast It is a a real healthy sized audience and and we thank all of you for listening but the ratings and reviews drive the rankings in Podcast land so spotify or apple were. They ranked the podcasts. Those rankings aren't driven necessarily by how many people are listening. But it's how much they like your show now. A lot of you rated us right when you started to listen and we were ranked super high. And i appreciated that. But if you haven't done it and you can do it. It just helps in the advertising of the show to be able to cite Lofty rankings which we've had and we continue to be among the only local sports content shows. I'm ranked consistently in the top two hundred podcasts Anywhere in the sports category but We could use more ratings and reviews To keep us in those rankings so a quick rating of five stars in a quick review of like one sentence of how much you like the show on apple or spotify. Those two places in particular. If that's where you're listening to us if you haven't done done done it. It really really helps so tommy's with me because the show today is gonna be you know a conversation about The league statement about the beth wilkinson report. Because we don't have anything from beth wilkinson because there isn't a written report. There's no written executive summary There was an oral Report a given to the league which the league then put out a statement on And then the team had a statement as well but this is what we're going to talk about today and maybe at the end of the show I will do A little bit on the nats and Some sports so for those. That don't know and i'm assuming most of you do know The league yesterday announced the outcome of the investigation. That the independent counsel led by beth wilkinson performed over the last eleven plus months and the outcome of that was Spelled out in a pretty long statement by the team but it ended with the conclusion. Which is that. The team was fined ten million dollars ten million dollars which by the way which will be a used to go to charitable organizations to that that deal with anti bullying Healthy relationships character education and a lot of women's related organization as organizations as well tommy. When i saw that. I thought what a break for all dan ten million bucks and he can write it off. 'cause it's going to charity which i have not seen anybody else speak about and i could be wrong. Maybe they can't because it was. You know a fine or a punitive thing. Maybe they can't write it off. But i thought well most charitable donations. Are you know You're able to write those off And maybe he will to. Now kneel in rockville told you this morning that the expenses associated with the investigation which the team also has to pick up. He estimated that it would be between foreign. Four and five million dollars that beth wilkinson and her group made off of this investigation. So maybe the total amount of this is like closer to fifteen million. but that's it no draft choices were. Yeah if i were a woman group. And i could be. If i were a woman screw i would take that money and throw it right back in their face right back in their face and i let the world know. I did that. Well if you're going to do it you have to let the world know there's no benefit to throwing it back in their face the kind of benefit you you'd be looking for without telling everybody about it. Yes that's what i would do. We survived without dance. Snyder's porn money will continue to survive. Yes so i'll go first all right and i'm gonna just high level at and then you can high level and then we can get into more detail first of all. I'm not surprised at the punishment. When they waived the debt limit. and then they loaned him the money as you reported or some of the money to buy out his minority investors. That was the day that we obviously came to the conclusion that he's not going to be forced to sell the team that there's no smoking gun out there or there's nothing out there that Implicates him enough to force him out of ownership. We knew i mean they're not waving the debt limit and then loaning the money to buy out his minority investors. If he's on his way out. That was so i was not surprised by the punishment. Jesse you know. The punishment was the most severe for an owner team in nfl history. But i also understand. It's a drop in the bucket compared to the value of the team number two. I am very surprised that at the very least we didn't get and i'm disappointed that we didn't get something from beth wilkinson. You know a three to four page executive summary of the investigation. At the very least i also however would say in the same breath that this is not comparable to all of the exhaustive hundred forty page written investigations by ted wells and others for deflate gate and other things there. It's not an apples to apples. Comparison because those investigations did not interview people with promised anonymity so they're they're not comparable from that standpoint at the same time. I would wonder why they couldn't have done something from beth. Wilkinson in terms of a report with non identifying information. Or you know faith or false name. Could they could have have to identify people in order to you know you. They're valid quotes and they're valid descriptions of what happened right but but again. It's not all i saw a lot of people yesterday. Comparing you know will deflate gate. Deflate gate had a one hundred and thirty six page report. By the way. I read that thing. I'll never forget it to ted wells thing where he didn't understand the ideal gas law which was hysterical But it's it's different. Because there's there was no promised anonymity to the hundred and fifty people that were interviewed for this investigation Thirdly and lastly. I don't view tanya becoming the day to day co ceo Operator responsible for day to day responsibilities as as spelled out by the league that tanya is going to have day to day responsibilities for a few months. While dan is going to focus on things like the stadium and other matters. This is not a suspension people. A suspension would have been called a suspension. There would have been no downside to a ten million dollar fine and a six month suspension for what they did describe in their statement as a culture that was hostile the women this is not a suspension. Now the one thing that makes me Hesitate a little bit is mark maske's Tweet that said that. Dan's return to the day to day operations of the team must be approved by roger. Goodell now that makes it sort of a partial kind of suspension. But if he were suspended there would have been no downside for them saying that. So i don't view it as a suspension that she's got the day to day a team operations which by the way is just super comforting. Isn't it And that he Is is focusing. Like michael. scott focused on the big picture and jim took over the day to day operations when they decided on that But he's still involved. These allowed to go to games. He's living with the co ceo under the same roof. So anyway there's a lot more In terms of my thoughts on some of this. But i'll let you have at it in terms of big picture takeaways..

EU regulator says AstraZeneca vaccine 'safe and effective'
"The european medicines agency has concluded that the astra zeneca covid nineteen vaccine is safe and effective. A review of the job came after thirteen states suspended. Its use over. Fears of linked to blood clots. But the now says the vaccine is not linked with a higher risk of clots. Well for more. I'm joined from brussels by darren. Mccaffrey the political editor euronews. A darn good morning to you and thanks for joining us with the doubts then about the vaccine. Will this kind all started last week or georgina. A in italy and austria where the reports of suspected blood clots for people who received that vaccine in fact amand had died in those extended to norway last weekend's and more importantly specifically to germany on monday and that led to a whole swathe of countries at particular the big four in the european union. It's the spain and france and germany deciding to suspend the use of the astrazeneca vaccine on what they call the precautionary principle so just in case essentially and that meant that the em aid and investigated these claims and yesterday. She said e kook. The director insisted that the vaccine was safe and effective. They said they couldn't find any link at all between an increase in blood clots and the vaccine however they did also that they couldn't rule arts at that there may be one specific type. Ucla cloth that has seen an increase and they couldn't rule out that that might be linked to it book again. Mccook pointed all medicine. All medicine has got side effects. You pick up a box of paracetamol at. You'll see that. In the most extreme circumstances it is possible. You might a reaction to its the point. Is that risk does not outweigh the benefits of this vaccine is the ema insisted yesterday. There are houses of people dying every day today tomorrow the next day across europe from corona virus and that this vaccine will help save lives or stop people getting ill. It will stop the main open hospital. It will stop them dying. And that's why they have consistently said that countries should have carried on using the astrazeneca vaccine an interest in the of course while not all countries stopped it for example they didn't hear belgian said. It would be irresponsible to do so. It is interesting the eu countries. Listen to the european medicines agency yesterday but ignored advice all week. The advice consistently has been not to stop the use of the astrazeneca vaccine. And i mean it just seems such a giant waste of time in terms of a race that everybody is trying to keep up with to suspend this for four really what has appeared to be no reason i mean as any woman knows taking the contraceptive pill as a much higher. Incidence of blood clots. Indeed i think from their point of view and this is where it gets complicated here in european union. Of course you've got european agency which is kind of the overarching body that authorizes drugs and authorized vaccines but you then also have national regulators. Who essentially gets to decide how those rules applied or or whether a member state should've finds by those rules when it comes to germany and where we saw a whole swathes countries at backing germany. The was the principal. There's also concerns about potential legal action because ultimately this is a state authorized vaccine service ad. That's been offered obviously to every german. And i think there was concern. That even could be farmed and they had data evidence to say that the wasn't increase increasing site. When it came to one specific type of blood clots the wilkinson's that may well open the german state of legal action and they wanted it to be investigated but yet. In retrospect all men many of these member states looking back. I answer that decision and decided it was the right one to do. Given the unfair. I would suggest damage reputation of astra zeneca for a whole load of ruse reasons across the eu and the damage that might do to the overall vaccine program. I'm not entirely sure was the right thing to

Merrick Garland Confirmation Hearing For AG
"But today is all about Merrick Garland. He'll appear before the Senate to take questions from lawmakers for the position of attorney general. Most people know Merrick Garland's name because of something that didn't happen. Garland never got a hearing after President Obama nominated him to serve on the Supreme Court five years ago. Here's NPR justice correspondent Carrie Johnson. Merrick Garland has devoted nearly 45 years to the law. But he didn't start out that way is, he told Professor Martha Minnow at Harvard Law School in 2016. Why don't you go to law school in the first place? Chemistry, well chemistry and math. Garland had planned to become a doctor. He wanted to help people one on one, but his collision with the hard sciences spun him toward the law, where he's looked for that sort of direct connection ever since. In the mid 19 eighties. At his law firm in Washington, Garland became a rising star. He made time for a young college graduate who worked in the copy center to Randy Thompson says Garland reviewed one of his papers, photocopied it and rearrange the paragraphs. That was the beginning of In essence and becoming a riding coach. For me, it was just extraordinary experience and became my coach. Eventually, my mentor and 30 something years later, a friend. Eventually Garland Road, MMA reference for law school and has kept in touch ever since, Thompson says garlands Still a little old school still humble, still looking to help. The only thing that really has changed about him, And I guess me as well is the color of hair. I don't know, well respected judge as attorney general. Help get the department under the quagmire of partisan politics that many people think it devolved to under President Trump and Attorney General Bar That's Georgetown law professor Paul Butler. He says the DOJ has been reeling from political scandals and racing to confront the threat from homegrown extremists. Merrick Garland has faced both before. After clerking on the Supreme Court. Garland took a job as an advisor in President Jimmy Carter's Justice Department. In those years after Watergate, DOJ struggled to separate partisan influence from law enforcement and establish new boundaries for the FBI. Garland also played a bit part in some of the biggest investigations of that era from political corruption to national security that Garland says later turned into hit movies. American Hustle about the Abscam case. Argo about the ex filtration of hostages in Iran and the most important the miracle on ice. Which was about the Lake Placid Olympics, where I did work on the security for the Olympics By the 19 nineties, Garland was prosecuting a violent gang that terrorized people in a public housing project. And helping build a case against DC's mayor Marion Barry. On drug charges Back inside Justice Department headquarters, Garland became the man to see for the hardest problems. The car bomb exploded outside of a large federal building in downtown Oklahoma City, Garland would soon travel to the site of the most deadly domestic terror plot in American history. 168 people died in that bombing in Oklahoma. Former deputy Attorney General Jamie Go Relic remembers watching that day with Garland by her side, he basically said while watching Children being pulled out of the wreckage. That he had to go. He really wanted to go. We both had young Children at the time and What we saw on those screens was so affecting. Garland oversaw the search warrants protected the chain of evidence and insisted that reporters have access to court proceedings. We wanted somebody Who could make sure that the investigation was done by the book. And that any indictment was bulletproof. Prosecutors later convicted Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols for their role in that bombing. Former prosecutor Beth Wilkinson says Garland played an important role in other confrontations with extremists in those years, including a standoff with the heavily armed Montana free Men. One of the examples I can think of is sometimes and there were these stand downs where there would be, you know, arrest warrants for someone, or there would be some kind of controversy between people who were challenging the federal government. America's first instinct wasn't to go in and arrest everyone. It was to try and along with the FBI to see if there's a dispute could be resolved. Wilkinson says. The FBI went on to arrest those men later. She credited garlands, quick thinking and cool head that may have prevented a tragic outcome. Just about the only criticism Garland's nomination has drawn is in the area of civil rights. Garland is a moderate, so I don't see him as the bold and visionary leader or racial justice that some people were hoping for again. Georgetown law professor Paul Butler that he's not an ideologue is both discerning for people who want an attorney general. To meet this moment of national reckoning inspired by the movement for Black lives and the killing of George Floyd Butler says he thinks girls just from the White House long time civil rights advocate Wade Henderson says Garland is up to the task. But Henderson says it's a big one. The next attorney general, for example, has to do everything In his or her power to fight for voting rights. Police reform Criminal justice reform and LGBT Q equality. For the past 23 years, Garland has been a federal appeals court judge in that role, he doesn't have much of a chance to share his personal views. Carolyn Lerner, the chief mediator at the courthouse, says Garland took an early, an important lead to update policies that protect workers from sexual harassment and other misconduct. I think it's very clear that Judge Garland cares a lot about these issues, and he really wants employees to be happy and comfortable in the workplace, and when he was chief judge, he took his responsibility. To these employees very seriously, she says. Garland wants to continue another of his projects at the Justice Department tutoring sessions with a young public school student. This year. The judge is working with an 11 year old boy and his twin sister. Your mom is Andrea Tucker. He makes this so interactive for them and so much fun and they can't get enough of it. It's the kind of public service that Garland has always wanted to

2021 RevTech Survey Results with David Elkington
"Or either everyone welcome to digital conversation inside host. Billy bates joined by david wilkinson chairman jeff phones and we'll be talking about the rebecca benchmark survey that we did in conjunction with the rope. Texoma last month. Dave extra data to do it was a super interesting study given. We're going to be blown away with findings yet. I think it's really interesting. Human doctoral roy did the mit study probably a decade ago. Now were together on putting this together for us So what was the objective with the study and a little bit of african doctoral great and i did a study looking response times on on. How quickly leads go cold. And so we had. I've been a lot of work together. He was teaching at mit. At the time. I think subsequently he's been at several universities teaching locally river secret. Byu so came to us. And said i'd like to actually analyze what's happening in the market around technology that supports this new growth title right so the one thing you shared with is there's a new title essential emerging in the market around growth rate growth revenue marketing revenue growth marketing title. Cheap doesn't said. Hey let's do a study to see what's the technology that supporting that more importantly i think what we're trying to understand was is it. Silence today was becoming the same thing. Let's kinda dig into a little bit of what we found before. Sure some of the methodology. I've got some notes is people doing. This went to the right or to the left. They'll know what i'm doing but the attended the we actually had a shockingly large number of respondents. We had almost nine hundred respondents survey today. That's that's a crazy number honestly yet. The reason we were able to to get such a large number is this was tied to your event Everyone that registered had the option to take the survey took anywhere to five minutes depending on how detailed you want to be But we went through. We were asking. Okay what are you guys use in the jags revenue technology. We broke it down the do of what we thought were the top ten. Kelly works and the findings were really interested. So yeah the categories were. We were looking. Well i think i have it here. Kind of standard categories. You'd expect so yes. See our marketing. Automation email marketing. Seo comes marketing compensation the usual stuff web optimization solution. Diligence sales may our sales automation like his aunt outreach. That's right and i think you'll see here soon. There's of the study. It's about probably seventy pages pretty pretty groovy study and there are fifty six charge. Ten of them are just the results of the questions. Eleven analyze the technologies used by region nine analyze based off the company size ten analyzed by industry and then ten really digging digging into what combinations are effective so again.

Superpowering Teams with Ilkka Paananen
"I've been so excited to do this with you for two reasons one. I've been spending so much time thinking about in in kobe. Playing video games with myself and my young son. I think a great way to begin. This conversation is with one of my favorite lines of yours. Which is that you want. Said i am the least powerful. Ceo in the world. I love this concept because it'll introduce the idea of culture teams and people that we're going to spend most of our time talking about which may send a little strange for a video game company. But i think it's amazing and critical. So what did you mean by this line. Why did you say that. What does it mean to super cells. Culture i thanks so much for having me better. I think some are behold point. The ball trays that the more decisions that the snake and i make the better in an ideal were like if i five no decisions then but would make me. I guess is far full. Co the whole idea about supercell on what is at the core of our culture is this idea is small and independent themes that equal cells and these independent gained things sacred inside supercell way to think about them think about smaller start ups bidding raider company. That's why we think about them. I'd love to go back before super cell. Because i think your career up until that point helped inform you in how to build supercell with less focus on command and control and more focused on decentralized trust and i think our lessons today will be applicable across creative pursuits and industries. Not just in gaming what were you doing. Prior to founding supercell and what lessons that you learned or were taught by your experience before this business. I need to go back to the year. Two thousand so. I will still a student at helsinki university of technology. I had a business major vote on my actually like in my early of my studies for some reason. My dream job was to become either a management consultant. Thouray investment banker simply. Because because everybody else in my cloth wanted to catch and so deny then at some point in my studies. I was really interested in about entrepreneurship. And i started to think. Well this would be really cool. You know trying to build your own sing with a group of great people. And then i just looked like super lucky. I happened to bump into this group of people who wanted to found a company and it had to big games company on earlier. Especially in my dna cheers. I had to be a massive game. Iran still played a little gains. And then these guys may creating afford to pay any salary on threes and there was nobody else will what's gonna applying to join them although us nevil gains and they needed somebody else to do everything else and i was probably the only applicant assay and then i got the job done. I didn't get any pay funny. Anything is these guys for that. Okay you gotta do all the sales for us than me to give you like a proper titles and the people would actually like to see you. I guess they didn't know what to call me seven. They decided to call me the ceo. And i think. I was twenty two years of age and absolutely no idea what i was doing at never had a proper job except on summer. Jobs are my parents. They probably never had a proper job. Because all i've done. I've been ceo gaming companies. But anyway that's how they're going to start it. I know i had no idea what we were doing. Learnt by ewing an end eventually managed to graduate some there in bethany. and so. that's how we're gonna start in the thousand so set up a games company on funnily enough Ballgames the time if you recall those days assistant feature phones but they're coming to markets mostly from manufacturers like nokia for example of course based here in finland and of course never snow app stores. Nothing like you would need to distribute this job based gangs through. Carriers was very different at that time. But that's how book started. He founded the company almost exactly at the finding the dot com bubble burst onto members financing available so we basically like financed it bites doing work for hire work and then on the side be developed our own. Ip and our own games. I think miller able cut deals with most of the european carriers in big some of the us based carriers and then a massive amount of these jobs based phone scam the market and actually make some money on the company started to grow and back in two thousand four. We sold our company to company each chocolate. Which will say followed. By game industry legend strip wilkinson funded by sequoia on inclined burke in on the joined forces to them and then over time. The company grew to like four hundred people so relatively sizable game. Developers confident. I would call that down. Nba in guessing entrepreneurship and management learned. Lots of lessons. What were the key lessons that you learn positive and negative all combine the time at both digital chocolate and your company that was acquired by digital chocolate. What were the things that it installed in you that you brought with you into super cell and what were some other things that you reacted to a reacted against when the about how supercell would run as a company that they could've kept and what i learned that all domestic. It's all about the people and digital chocolate. I was very lucky to berkeley luck. Such amazing people. I kinda fought at those times that we are going to like had the best strategy the best plans the best processes in place and digital chocolate and mostly because of my doing so sexy quite a sort of a structured and also when it comes to innovation so we had pros almost forever thing if you off me like okay. How digital chocolate. Think about new games development tenure like a slight dick flex sixty slides expense. Exactly things for and they had all kinds of prose essays fall like how do they green like games the almost full we are myself and mike on leadership team over. There had a crystal ball as he kind of knew the best declare. Send a cornerstone. Humorous won't and then they put together like all kinds of control mechanisms to make sure that the company x. develops products and gains the direction. But then all of the years. I realized that there are a lot of negatives above this type of way of thinking. Because isn't the great the best creative people in the world. They don't get the feeling of ownership and oftentimes the reality is but actually the people who are best. What is best for the game for players. Those people are actually people are building the game. It's bill leadership. The people like me. And all the years. I realized our job as leaders. They should enable people to do their work better. We'll try to control the spent so much time carring the best people in the world also digital trump anything about why on earth tried to control them by. Don't do trust them to do the best thing. One of the things that made me fully realize this at some point. I start to look back with. Okay let's look at the heat gains but our company has pulled out early sort of a coma nominate these gangs. One is that may have really amazing people and raised themes it'd behind the games but interestingly the other thing was that most of these gangs some had nothing to do with all of these fantastic pros instead had besides the usual story was just need into anything else for these guys do their sunbury their on during the corner of the office and they were just doing whatever they want to do. And there's some flying under radar so to speak and then the next thing you know. This amazing game comes out. And then i start seeing whoa that. These amazing games may come out because of me or together they come out despite the spiteful things

And i remember when i first met andrew. He just made me feel so good. You know sometimes you meet these people. They have the kindness and call must energy and andrews definitely one of these people. So i had such a pleasure getting to know him and today on this podcast will share his story. And i think as you say that about him being very calm and nice and kind you never think. He's this serial entrepreneur. I think a lot of us when we have the word of launch successful powerful business person person. You started thinking about this very aggressive aggressive macho man doing deals investing you know You know not being kind and andrew as opposite really. I'm guy and he's always as delivering value to others. He's always helping others as we go into this podcast. He shares a lot of his insights on twitter where he's very active or medium and a lot of people. Ask me you know who inspires me. You know who are the people that i look up to four information that i learned from and andrew wilkinson has been bad person. I th. I believe the best way to really succeed in. Life is to model people who are already on the path that you want to be on. An andrew is definitely on an incredible pat himself. Most importantly that he lives true to himself. He designs his life based on how he wants to live his life. So you want to see him in a fancy car offer. Fancy watch most likely. Maybe he has those things but he won't flaunt them He's really cares about his family. His lifestyle and you know victoria british columbia in a small down. He likes it that way even though he didn't like it as he talks about in the story. But there's so much to learn from.

I walked into an office at harvard not that long ago and somebody said oh maintenance is here the equipments in the back of the room and one person recognize me. That's professor wilkinson.

Refocusing climate change as a human problem
"Been talking about how to adapt to climate change and how technology and the tech industry can help. But here's the part even on tech show where we acknowledged that climate change isn't just about tech solutions or Whiz Bang inventions, and in fact, like the pandemic climate change is a problem that reflects an exposes lots of things about our society Ion Elizabeth Johnson, and Katherine Wilkinson Co edited a book called Can Save Truth Courage and solutions. For the climate crisis, it features poems, essays, and other works of art by women working on climate issues I spoke with them. Both will Told me there's a lot in that subtitle we need to have eyes wide open to what is happening listened to the science we need courage, and then of course we need solutions and not just the solutions that kind the climate rose are really into like evt's and solar panels we definitely need those on just got Tesla. I think that's the TRIFECTA right though truth courage and solutions when people are like well, if not hope then what that's our answer. A when did we find ourselves at a point where we sort of stop talking about climate? As the thing we live from the air, we breathe the rain that falls or doesn't fall. Do you think it's important to like even before we start talking about solutions to recenter the conversation as a human problem? Yeah. Even though we didn't cause this problem, it's in fact one hundred corporations who are responsible for seventy one percent of emissions. There is a wide range of possible futures. And we so deliberately curated this book to show the wide range of ways that people can contribute building the best possible future. So it includes farmers and architects and artists, and journalists, and of course, scientists and policy experts and lawyers, and all of those skills are are needed and very much wanted. How much of this storytelling is also about making the simple economic argument that saving people also saves money. When we talk about the cost benefit analysis of doing various things to address the climate crisis, we usually only focus on the costs as opposed to making sure that we are also thinking about the benefits. And I think that is quite bolstering to me as a marine ecologist by training and thinking about nature based solutions and how protecting and restoring nature actually makes financial sense. 'cause it's cheaper to have mangroves and marshes and sea grasses than seawalls, right for example. So so I, think this book really shows not just some sort of techno Utopian version of the future where we like. Innovate, our way out of everything and instead it talks about the huge array of work that needs doing and the costs of of not doing it and what the world could look like for the better. If we do I feel like this conversation about racial justice, climate, justice, social justice, the importance of involving women in these conversations, how many women are leading solutions all over the world. is still kind of new and still kind of Nathan which is so lame but you're right. Which is pretty lame. But maybe take some explaining you know like what? What is what is this relationship between Racial Justin climate change and why don't people understand that I think we don't understand it because. Don't want to because it's it complicates something that has already really hard right like that's the. That's the push back that I hear most often it's not like I'm a racist and I WANNA, save the planet. It's more like solving climate change is hard enough without bringing in all these other layers. Can we just please focus on climate change now I and we'll deal with Lake police not murdering block people for no reason later. And the answer is no. No, we can't. We have to walk and Chew Gum on this one and there are many reasons for that. One is just it's the right thing to do, and so I hate having to give other reasons. But one of those other reasons is we know from polling by Yell and George Mason University's the people of Color actually are more concerned about the climate crisis. They're more motivated to be a part of the solution and to hold the politicians to higher standards on Climate Policy But how you know how can we expect black people to be focused on climate solutions when? Making, sure they have the basic right to live and breathe. and so this I can't breathe has become a rallying cry across You know across the racial and climate justice groups that it's not just in relation to police brutality but in the ways that communities of color are burdened with more polluted air and where or low where power plants decide to locate themselves, and then you know people who are breathing that dirty air being more at risk for extreme forms of of Covid, and so of course, these things are all connected and wouldn't it be great if we were building the winning team by including the people who were already on board and beyond to help and if we could unburden them from. Our White Supremacist Patriarchy, which is certainly not serving us in terms of really anything. But definitely, it's it's preventing a lot of people from being part of climate solutions because you know they have to dedicate their time and energy and ingenuity towards solving other problems about quality of life and justice and I. I just WanNa add because I think on articulates the. So incredibly well that when we think about climate change as quote unquote the problem I think that's where we start to miss. These intersections and entanglements when we understand actually that climate change is a manifestation of the problem, right? It's emerging of a system that we're getting so much feedback that it's not working. Racial violence is part of that feedback massive wealth inequality as part of that feedback the epidemics of loneliness and meaninglessness are part of that feedback, and also an atmosphere that is kate marvel says is larded with carbon dioxide and is having all of these climatic impacts that's also part of the feedback. But if we're just thinking about climate change as the problem we need to solve. Then our analysis isn't defense about what's actually going on here and thus what it's actually going to take to solve it. Kathryn Wilkinson and Iona Elizabeth Johnson Co edited the Book All. We can save truth courage and solutions for the climate

We mostly want to be surprised at the wrong things. The things that we find unusual and surprising about friends. Life were completely normal for the culture and time. So, this is a rather typical conversion story. Friend began preaching this and I converted friends family, and then began to convert other people. This is all extremely normal. Normal communing with God is normal. Prepare for the second coming. All of this is Cheryl and completely unremarkable specially in new. England during the great making. It's the thing right this is.

"Hosting an evening with Laura Wilkinson she's an Olympic gold medalist we're doing it as a Daddy daughter date night and you know I have friends who were who were dads who have daughters they're always looking for something they can do with their daughter their daughter don't want to go on the hunting trip the daughter may not want to go to the football game but this is something to do with their daughter that she might be interested in specially their daughters into athletics and so we're doing that event I checked the numbers today and I was I wasn't happy that we have a lot of people coming I was relieved if you organize events you stress like you would not believe worrying will anybody be there how did an event years ago I had done an event it was in one of our markets not in Houston I've done an event worth thousand people had showed up a thousand people no music no nothing I walk in the door we were excited you there well here's the problem now what I'm glad you're here you're glad I'm here now what we do so I take a photo with everybody they bring stuff for me to sign I thank them for coming but you do the math if you meet a thousand people let's assume everybody's in a couple so you treat the couple is one still five hundred if you give a minute per couple is that think about that AS eight hours we we don't have eight hours so now you cut it into thirty seconds that's four hours we're gonna be here all right we might do that but thirty seconds includes get them and get them out all right but it's a it's a very rewarding thing right we've done events in in Birmingham where we've had a thousand people we did an event in Portland where I stood out in in the searing heat four five almost five hours Shannon stuff until mercifully it started raining because I was so exhausted okay so I I'd do a more I do show at doing event in this particular market we had a thousand people the event a year ago I waited a year in between so we know we get a crap but there was a group that said we want to do this event and it was for a campaign for a candidate that never got off the ground and they said look we want to do it is this and we we got all these details and people have to buy a ticket the ticket was insanely expensive I walked in the door and there were maybe twenty people so I slip back out all my good is horrible waited waited in they had sent a limo so I sent it back to the limo and I waited till the crowd assembled was forty some friends of mine were in the band that was plot that they hired for the event that for that night and I'm Texan on when we get to forty let me know and I will come in and take my medicine well the difference between a free event and an insanely eggs I didn't charge this much to see Willie Nelson they thought they were going to play pay that but if that was the deal right it was so humiliating it was such a blow to my ego I wanted to crawl underneath the limo and let the oil leak into my eyeballs so I could be blinded to the world it was terrible when you're running for president you're not on the debate stage right because they're only seven on the debate stage means about half of did get up there you're not on the debate stage so when you call people today Hey you will see if I could you know if I could ask you for three thousand dollars for my campaign I don't know you still run and why weren't you on the stage that hurts that's painful and these your ego maniacs and you're doing this day after day you're flying around the country you might even be flying commercial because you don't have a private jet at this point you're flying commercially showing up to events and there's four people there not even enough people to cheer for you coming in you have your stay then you start laying off staff it gets to your ego it's painful it's it's a real renewal you go check when that happens you do that for a week or two it's it's untenable it's unbearable and that's when they go I'm done that's that was departed this this week that's why he was out poorly on Castro he had to have a box to stand on at the debate any stood over on the you know the way they do the debate is whoever's pulling the baskets the middle spot in the lower you are you get put out on the wings and there was really in Castro out on the wing he was out on the very end and the camera caught the angle that he was stepping up on a box he was like a **** at the debate that is not as the Napoleonic complex does not go over well other restrictions on his Canada's drop out here pretty soon especially because they can't get in the debates and once we have the Iowa caucuses Tony mark my words movie gig is gonna be better it caucuses than anybody expected book.
