You know fearless termine surely before Dr. Bullard turned eighteen. In nineteen, sixty four congress passed the civil rights at the law that ended segregation racial equity became his life's work in and through his research decades later, he exposed the ways that minorities bear the burden of pollution. Started working on environmental racism before it was A. Concept that was. I guess steeped in the DNA of the country racist today, anger over racism and policing is energized. The black lives matter movement. Public opinion is shifting. It feels like an historical parallel to the sixties, but bullard says this time around things are different when you look at you, know the sixties and you see. The, most cases, it was Likable out there with with whites. And in many cases, it was sprinkling a life. People out there, and this seems different. You look at the images rolling across the screen. and you see that you. You have young people. You have old people. You have in a generation of folks of all colors and sizes than and whatever saying a. we need to do something about race. Oh injustice! His observation is backed up by polls that say more Americans than ever believe racism is a big problem and pretty much. Every major climate group is joining the movement in solidarity, saying that their goals aligned with the goals of the protesters blurred sees. This is a positive step. We're talking about climate. We also talked about. Climate is racial justice. Climate is health. Climate is economic justice so the justice. Justice part in the part. Those things have to be front and center, not a footnote, but sympathetic politicians and Enviro groups lineup in support. He wants to know. What are they going to do about it? All of our groups got statements now everywhere you look. Everybody got a statement on. Racial Justice and what we say is racial justice starts at home so the Biden campaign and the Biden. Team and hopefully it will be a transition team will need to live up to this whole idea of of inclusion, an infusion of that transition with racial justice. That's the kind of leadership that I would like to see in the white. House, that can inspire motivate and get people working together. This is climate, twenty twenty, a podcast about climate change and the twenty twenty election. I'm David Gelber of the Climate Media Company the Years Project and I'm Jeff. Nest, but I run climate nexus, a climate communications group coming up how fighting racism is inextricably tied to fighting climate change and cleaning up the environment.

"Next to the grassroots battled environmentalist. Bill mckibben has been at the forefront of climate activism for decades this week he launched climate crisis newsletter for the New Yorker and. He's joining us now from Vermont. Bill mckibben welcome back to the program. Cristiano always good to be with. So what did you think of the optimistic note and the rather urgent note that you know atop? Ceo Paul Polman has just sounded. Does it make sense what he's saying? Well Paul deserves great credit. If there's anyone who's tried to move a big company in the right direction it's him sadly he's well his very much in the vanguard and there haven't been as many followers yet as one would hope that's particularly true in the two most important sectors the fossil fuel industry itself and the financial industry that supports it. And that's I think where most of the activism now is being aimed. So what would you suggest because I mean let's just talk about activism one of the quotes from your recent newsletter study by researchers at Yale and George Mason University? Found that one in five. Americans said they would quote personally engage in nonviolent civil disobedience against corporal government activities that make global warming worse if a person they liked asked them to. That's the whole peer peer pressure. That leads to change the peer imperative. What Wo- what would you say to these other corporations than that? We've sort of lift listed. Who are beginning to say things. Well look that. That pressure is building because movements are building. You know there's a greater Timberg and a ten thousand other young people like her out pushing hard it's building because people look on TV and see Australia consumed in inferno and those people are increasingly getting a chance to take a stand. The next big day is going to be April twenty third in this country when we think that many thousands of people will be committing civil disobedience in the lobbies of chase bank branches around the country. Why because J. P. Morgan Chase biggest bank in the world is by far the biggest funder of the fossil fuel industry? Since all those good words Paris they've put one hundred ninety six billion dollars in loans into the fossil fuel industry. You know true that president trump pulled us out of the Paris Accord. But people like chase. Bank were undermining us before we could ever even get going so we have to break this. Well this kind of web of influence look the the lead director at Chase Bank and the guy who runs their board of directors before he took that job was the CEO of Exxon biggest the time oil company on Earth so there's an enormous amount of power and only citizen power can begin to to break it up but that citizen power can really work. You know we've talked in the past about this. Divestment movement that we launched seven or eight years ago to get institutions to break their ties from fossil fuels at the start. It was small by this point. Word about twelve trillion dollars in endowments portfolios that are divesting from coal and gas and oil. And that's putting enormous pressure on the sector. Shell Oil said in their annual report. This last year the divestment had become a material risk to its business which is good because Shell Oil's become a material risk to earth. Well I was going to ask. You is divestment then because a lot of people do talk about any gets not very much coverage is divestment a bigger game changer than activism on the streets votes at the ballot box or even corporations. I mean I know you say they're not enough yet Corporations which you know as we said to pull opponent as he admits these are the biggest images of of carbon carbon products into the air. So he's divestment bigger or these other things well so divestments become a huge tool as Paul said. It was outside pressure that begins to get corporations to move and the most important corporations to move are the handful that is he pointed out. Supply seventy five or eighty percent of emissions. So that's where the pressures coming I look at it Christianise if there's two levers to pull here one is the political ever in the US. Twenty as a big year. Today's a big day. You know so. There's lots of people working hard to change our political system but we also have to pull this financial lever because Washington doesn't really rule the world anymore but Wall Street kind of does and if you could begin to get the big banks and asset managers to change how they value and how they deal with the fossil fuel industry. You'd be a long ways there it starting. This campaign is only about six months old people can go to stop the money pipeline dot Com to learn more about it but in its first six months. It's persuaded some of the biggest insurance companies. Some of the biggest banks to begin at least to change their policies. The biggest success came six weeks ago when one of our chief targets blackrock biggest asset manager on earth their CEO out a fairly remarkable letter saying that everything in finance is going to have to change because of climate change. Now we don't know whether he means it yet we're going to have to monitor are to see if they're actually taking steps to match their rhetoric but man it's a good example of following this because again to push hard it because we actually interviewed the sustainability chief. Brian deese at blackrock. And you're right Larry. Fate said the one of the biggest impacts on finance is climate change. And they're gonNA have to change the way they do things so you're right. It is moving study. I do just want to ask you about what will it take to get the governments to change because as we pointed out as we talk with Paul polman still the biggest emissions China and the United States by no means doing what they need to do on combating the emissions? Do you think corporations can move governments? I think people can move governments if they push hard and one of the things they have to do is push hard on corporations but governments act and best slowly even when you get them in motion and that's one of the reasons that were also working so hard on this financial angle because if you think about it you know if tomorrow J. P. Morgan Chase said we're not lending anymore to the fossil fuel industry that would ab felt instantly. Every stock market in the world would react within minutes and be felt globally. Our money system remains dramatically interconnected in a way that our political systems are increasingly disconnected. So I think we have to do both. We're working hard on both. But there is a lot of excitement right now around these financial institutions. One reason is you've seen that say in the United States that map that Donald Trump always holds up that shows all the red parts of America. And they're all for him on an on just these little slivers of blue or people who are voting against him. Well if you hold up a money map the United States it's just the opposite. Most of the money's concentrated in those little slivers of blue so that's the electorate as it were that blackrock chase and the others have to worry about okay so. I just need to ask you because you keep mentioning J. P. Morgan Chase presumably for a reason. But didn't you just tweet about them just very recently about the fact that they said that they would no longer invest in object fossil fuels? You they made a small concession last week in the face of this pressure they're beginning to take stock of what they're going to have to do but people continue to push them very very hard. I was arrested in the lobby of the JP chase branch nearest the US capital last month at the launch this campaign and we think that they'll be people in the lobbies of thousands of their branches on April twenty third. That's the day after the fiftieth anniversary of Earth Day. So we're all going to commemorate what we've done over the last half century but then we're GONNA go right to work trying to make sure that the next half-century goes faster because it's gotta go faster. That's the thing. The problem here is not that. We're not going to get where we need to go eventually. Look Sun and wind or now the cheapest way as Paul pointed out to generate power around the world so eventually we'll get there but we don't have eventually the scientists told us that if we haven't made dramatic transformation inside of ten years than our chance of meeting the Perez target is essentially nil. That's why though it's sort of crazy people are going to jail. It's why they're cutting up their credit cards. It's why they're taking really dramatic action to hold to account the people who are the well the kind of glue of this fossil fuel system. I'm Ben I WANNA put up a map that we have. You must have seen it. Everybody knows everybody's talking about it. Really one of the if there can be a side benefit to corona virus. It is that it's helped a little bit with the pollution of the skies certainly in China or at least where the virus has has dramatically reduced. The amount of industrial activity there. And you can see the before and after map I mean surely even to the most vociferous doubters that people who talk about hoaxes and that climate change is just you know a nonsense constructed by the media and other nefarious actors. Surely that map is once and for all proof. What do you say to that well? I don't know the president's states is now decided that the corona virus is a hoax too. You know everything's a hoax. But Yeah Look. There's nothing good in any way about the corona virus obviously And the fact that it's cutting carbon pollution momentarily in China isn't the right way to go about it because it will rebound instantly nine until the wage bill but I just thought this old absolutely I mean look. There's no doubt what's going on anymore. Only people who have some vested interest in this system or still trying to maintain the idea that there is some doubt here. I mean anybody. All anyone needs to do is look at those unbelievable pictures from Australia earlier this year and we had thousands of people in one of the richest countries unearth standing on beaches waiting into the ocean because it was the only way to escape the firestorm that was engulfing their communities. That's what's coming to the world. That's what much in the world looks like already. So we've only increased the temperature one degree. We talk about one point. Five or two degrees. If they're kind of goals really their horror shows they're just not as bad as the path that we're currently on. That's why immediate quick and dramatic action is so important if there are people out there who've been keeping their powder dry. Now's the moment we need you. We have leveraged for the next few years to make huge changes but after that our ability to influence the outcome of this story really begins to Arab so even as the trump administration roles a huge number of regulations EPA laws governing water and air and the and the rest and even some of its officials try to insert distorting language the not just denies climate change but totally distorts. The science like how Carbon Dioxide is somehow actually good for us. Even as that is happening there is a lot of good news. We heard from Paul. As we've heard from you is we've heard from many mayors on a subnational level so to speak state level and Mayo level. Things are happening in a very big way so I wanna ask you about some of the solutions and some of the good news because I think people need to know that there are solutions that they can they can work for. You have scoreboard a scorecard. There were going to put up briefly right now that you list about some of the things that have actually transpired that that work to weed through some of your latest. We don't actually have the graphic but tell me on your scoreboard. Some of the things that were bill. Well there's all sorts of things that are starting to happen all over. You can just list morning tonight. I just got a great email from a friend of mine saying you. GotTa look this tour. That indigenous people put together of tiny houses and they're building a small sensible houses and they're increasingly building them. In the path of the kind of pipelines. That people are trying to block. There's incredible action to stop the biggest fossil fuel projects on earth last week. They pulled the plug on what would have been the biggest tar sands mine on the planet largely because of incredible indigenous opposition in Canada. They just blocked plans for a huge gas pipeline across the eastern coast United States. Why because the people who wanted to do it said the investment climate has changed. That is to say all those people who worked so hard on divestment and gotten done what needed doing went. They've got the message beginning to sink in that. This is not where we're going anymore so all of this kind of work. In movements we fight each fight on. Its own you have to block this pipeline. Divest at college on and on but the BICYC- bottom line is what we're fighting for is to change the Zeitgeist people's sense of what's normal and natural and obvious so that's what's happening now and to that point we do have this image and that is the cover of the latest National Geographic which talks about the end of of of waste of trash. And I wonder whether you can talk a little bit. About of course. Trash the amount of natural resources including food and clothes not to mention all we just we just toss away and people are talking about a circular economy now instead of a buy-in dispose economy. Took me a little bit about that? Christiaan net changed. Can't come fast enough. There's a remarkable article that came out a few hours ago from rolling stone to look at is plastic pollution around the world. You've kind of know about this and been listening to people..

United States, Rich Cuomo And New York discussed on Dave Ramsey
"The mainstream media now screeches that the very air. We breathe is racist. USA today has a story. There's a race gap and air pollution. Whites largely largely 'cause it blacks and Hispanics. Breathe it there. We're told we're told to believe that one hundred thousand Americans die per year of air pollution. Although the this article I'm about to tell you about does admit that the air in this country has been has been getting significantly cleaner. But for the good of the human race, white people ought to be a radical. And so that everybody else can breathe think of the lives. It's going to save. Makes you wonder whether the anti Jewish propaganda the run up to the holocaust was ever this over the top because this really is absurd. Listen to the story the air that Americans breed is an equal rights USA today pollution is disproportionately caused by whites but disproportionately inhaled by black and Hispanic minorities. Poor air quality remains the largest environment. Women poor air quality remains the largest environmental health risk in the United States. I thought Chuck Schumer just told us that the greatest danger we face as climate change. Thank you. I can't keep up with this stuff. Poor air quality USA today. Right. Remains the largest environmental health risk in the US. The study warns in fact with one hundred thousand deaths per year more Americans die from air pollution. Then car crashes and murders combined. Let's just take the face value. And let's say that that's absolutely correct. Are one hundred thousand deaths are caused every year by air pollution. You know, what we need? More common sense environmental policies. More common sense environmental laws if saves just one life because we're talking about one hundred thousand deaths which they say. Is more Americans die from that. Then car crashes and murders combined. So if we have including suicides, if we have maybe three thousand deaths a year. From guns. Thirty thousand deaths per year from guns. This is three times at number three times the number. I think it's time for Democrats to get focused on what the real problem is. Air pollution. The study's co author Jason hill, an engineering professor at the university of Minnesota who is white writes, even though minorities are contributing less to the overall problem of air pollution. They are affected by more. Is it fair that I create more pollution in somebody else's disproportionately affected by it? Now, he says that while the air in the United States has gotten cleaner in the past decade. Pollution inequality is stubbornly high. He says what is especially surprising is just how large pollution in equity is and has been for well over a decade, the title pollution, analyzing the study is known as pm two point five tiny, grains, a particular matter there, especially dangerous to human health because they get it gets deep into our lungs. Those particles a two point five micrometres far smaller than the width of human hair or produced by car tail pipes. Power plant smokestacks and burning materials. The last I checked. Car tail pipes. Glenn everywhere. Power plant smokestacks. And you might just let's forget about on the ground where the power plant is. But the power plant smokestacks. At least in Colorado, for example. Really aren't in urban areas. And if it goes up the stack in his caught by the wind doesn't that mean that it affects everybody? The study found that black and high Spanich Americans bear a pollution burden. Blacks are exposed to about fifty six percent more pollution than is caused by their consumption. For Hispanics is slightly higher. Hispanics are exposed to sixty three percent more pollution, then is caused by their consumption. However, non Hispanic whites experience a pollution advantage. Meaning they breathe about seventeen percent less air pollution than we. 'cause now the formula they use. Is driven by disparities in the amount of goods and services that groups consume any exposure to the resulting pollution On average, whites tend to consume more than minorities, and that's because of wealth. This guy says. For example. The scientists found that white spend more money on pollution intensive goods and services than do blacks and Hispanics, which means that they generate more pollution than other groups do now think about the so. Because we buy ostensibly we buy more goods and services that create more pollution. So therefore because we we're all breathing the same air. So the disparity is because we buy more goods and services, yet, we breathe the same air that is if it's polluted by those goods and services, we're still breathing. The air produced by those goods and services. Not Hispanic whites. He writes experience about seventy percent less air pollution than they caused. Well, we give someone had to make the pin. You bought at the store says the co author we wanted to look at where the pollution associated with making that pin is located is it close to where people live in who lives there. So for the study the category. Non-hispanic whites also includes Asian Americans. And maybe the Americans this is based on the source that the researchers use government data on personal expenditures from the bureau of labor statistics statistics other experts. Agreed these findings confirm what both grassroots environmental Justice leaders have known for decades whites are dumping their pollution on poor people and people of color, that's a Texas Southern University of public affairs. Professor Robert Bullard Bullard often called the father of environmental Justice happens to be black. I don't think there's much. If any sort of. Whatever I buy. I'm breathing that air to as residents flee New York's high taxes, they're beginning to use extraordinary intrusive audits to get cash from the defectors. You can't leave New York. You cannot leave New York. New York state goes to extraordinarily links to catch wealthy residents who tried to flee. It's burdensome taxes, which is leaving a gaping hole States Treasury. They are facing a two point three billion dollar budget deficit member guests said we can't have good things. We can't have nice things. We have our priorities all screwed up. Here's a great example of that. This is the flip side tax the rich tax the rich tax rich Cuomo said last month, we did God forbid the rich leave. Brilliant observation governor. Tax the rich tax the rich tax the rich. So we did now God forbid the richer leaving. I wonder why. If you are rich, and you keep getting poked, you just keep getting jabbed in jabbed in jabbed, and they just keep taking more and more and more of your money. At some point. You say, you know, what I can keep more of my money. If I if I pack up and move to a state that's not gonna poke poke poke poke me or as Cuomo says tax rates tax Rix, tach tax, the rich.

Miami Heat pushing Minnesota Timberwolves to accept revised Butler deal
"Why do you want Jimmy Butler? Let me explain Jimmy Butler is not exactly a good teammate. We've now realized this considering he's now exited to places or we'll be exiting his second place. A not a good note. Right. The exit from Chicago wasn't pretty this exit from Minnesota, obviously is not pretty Miami is to be a team that's going to have young players. Jimmy Bullard penalty isn't a fan of young players. Ask Karl Anthony towns and ask Andrew Wiggins about that. He's also going to be a free agent. That's gonna command one hundred ninety million dollars over like five years used to make a big financial investment to a guy. He's what twenty eight twenty nine years old. I'm giving you every reason to the book why you don't want Jimmy. Here's another one Jimmy Bala goes to Minnesota. They really had Andrew Wiggins already had Karl Anthony towns did you make that much better? No, right. Do they even when fifty games only forty eight games? I just think you're barking up the wrong tree getting all hot and heavy for Jimmy baller. If you're Miami. I just don't think he's that difference maker and teammate that you need in a rebuilt putting Jimmy Butler with a ninety year old Dwayne Wade this year isn't gonna made you a better team where you're actually going to compete for even the Eastern Conference. It's a waste of your time. So the deal that Minnesota apparently wants is like, Josh Richardson. Bam out of bio first round pick next year. I just think for Miami sake, hold off be like every other team that hasn't expressed interest in they know then a year he's going to be a free agent. Anyway, Miami's not Jimmy Butler this year away from winning anything keep the assets keep your draft pick. And wait that's Miami. We my personal foul forgetting all hot and heavy for all people

But actually, he was cheap. He took his shoes to the shoemaker and said put these armed bumpers on there for me because he kept wearing your shoes out on the coal stone. So there was two purposes. Plus when he read his bicycle around. They said it actually charged his body from the middle soles on his shoes. Well, I really liking this. And you're telling me a few things that I I didn't know before or had forgotten. I remember that we did go into the car was called the garden of the moon. And we saw the the mysterious gate that the heavy stone. Gayton push with your finger. Yeah. Right. Yeah. That that was until it stopped working the most marvelous. I mean when you see it, and you see how heavy it is nine tons and that little three year old girl in the photo, the famous photo of her pushing it that it did that on every tour just to show how in the world you could do that. Well, we loved the church and my kids who are now full ground adult still remember that. I'm so have you got here you live in Florida? You know, we've got the greatest structure in the world. And it's not talked about, you know, the governor net bleed dish or not no Florida. Governor no really important person has ever gone down. This is the hundred year of coral castle. There's no there's no banquets. There's nothing to sell really why not George you. Tell me I have gone down to that many. They must know about it. They do know about it. They know about it. How how many acres does it? They engulf. It was ten acres. Some of it was sold off. It's probably about three or four acres now. But you know, you asked me, George what made me so interested in it when you walk in there, and like Carol can probably tell you. It's like it just walked out of there yesterday. Yeah. It's like time stood still there's there's nothing like she was saying those kids you can go down there. Swing all those chairs. You can't hurt. Anything? You know, it used to say I charge any hurricane to blow up against my walls. It'll lose what would Hurricane Andrew came in there. It busted the all the meteor things at two hundred fifty miles an hour. Call castle was the only thing that stood up text and tweets, Tom. What do you have four Mr. Bullard this one in from Nancy in Waco, Texas, is there any chance that drugs or alcohol played a role in its construction of coral castle drugs or alcohol wonder what she means by that. What do you think? His his strongest weakness, sometimes he had a root beer that was it. He never never touched anything rarely rarely drank any kind of he could. I don't think he would have been able to not to do what he did not know the man the man worked himself to death used to be called rock gates. Right. That was the original name rock gate and who named it. He did he did he actually called it rock eight when he died, of course, they they wanted the more. You know, kinda I'd like coral castle. It sounds better. Yeah. It gate doesn't really explain it. But I loved it when he didn't say it publicly, but he talked about the Stargate part, you know, the part that he really he would talk to Mr. Bullard, and and everything he would talk to people who he trusted, but he never said much publicly because after he started talking about Mars and all those things, you know, people kind of and then when the thirty eight war of the worlds came out the martians landed he had some troubles. That was a classic. Let's go to Barry. In rock hill, South Carolina. Hello friend. Hey there, buddy. Water. Great great show. I'm so glad I'm on it tonight. I didn't know it was going to be on a.
Tom Thibodeau pitches Jimmy Butler on rejoining Timberwolves
"This Jimmy Butler thing is just getting crazier and crazier. You all know by now. Mr. Butler sat down with Tom timid. Oh, Andy, worry. I'm the Timberwolves front office and said, I wanna get traded. And then Tim dove was like, nah, we don't really. Trade you. We're not taking any offers. Now the reports are from, whoa, JR. Check this out till general manager. Scott Layden had been shutting down trade inquiries for Butler in recent days. And Taylor has demanded that late Nali take calls up potential deals, but reach out to initiate conversations.

So the owner of the timber wolves is now telling his employees that they need to not only take trade requests calls, but to reach out and make initiate trade talks with other teams. What does that tell you about where everyone's heads at in the front office in Minnesota one starts with the owner and it goes back to what I've talked about on this program for months.

Basketball operations and the Costa team, or you were on the side of Karl Anthony towns. He ironically signs a supermax deal. As soon as they start talking about Jimmy bullard's being traded, I'm like, he didn't wait to this week like soon as they start talking about trained Jimmy Butler. He was like outside, I'll stay and they already paid as you wings. So that fracture clearly was there.
