Deadly decisions

"It was January nineteen, seventy four, the future was bright or so I thought. I had just completed my formal education after returning from Vietnam. Only twenty two months earlier. I was ready and anxious to land a job flying for American Delta Eastern or United Airlines. My timing couldn't have been worse. The country was in the middle of what we were calling a fuel crisis. The airlines were not expanding. With no immediate job prospects I decided, it would be a good time to pursue my airline transport rating later changed to airline transport pilot or ATP. Raleigh. Durham aviation offered ATP training, and was also assessment dealer. So I trained in a brand new Cessna three, ten q immediately after my check ride, the airplane was sold to a business in Richland's Virginia. A day or two. Later, the salesman who sold the three ten called and asked me if I would be interested in a job flying a beach baron for a business also based in Richmond. Virginia, the pilot currently flying the baron was going to work for the company that had just bought the three ten. I said I was interested. So he told me to catch an early flight the next day to Tri Cities Tennessee where the pilot leaving the job flying the baron would meet me. I arrived early the next morning. The pilot from Richland's was a nice guy, a couple of years older than me. He had come to the United States to attend flight school and build flight experience with plans to return to Denmark and fly for the country's airline. We departed tri cities with me at the controls and headed for. RICHLAND's I. had not taken the time to familiarize myself to the area. So I simply followed his instructions. Arriving over richland's a short time. Later, he advised me to begin my descent and start a teardrop turn to the right. He explained that we had just passed over the town of Richland's. He knew that because he had tuned in the AM radio station located in downtown Richland's on the ATF. He said I needed to maintain a seven hundred and fifty feet per minute descent while turning. As we entered the clouds, he told me to tighten the turn. I was already in a standard rate turn, but I complied, and we soon broke out of the clouds at about a thousand feet above the ground with the small town of Richland's in front of us. That's when it dawned on me. We had just descended between two ridge lines and into valley. I asked the pilot if you regularly flew into and out of Richland's using this method and he said, he did he told me, it was no big deal. Just crossed the AM radio station on a heading of zero, three zero degrees and descend at a rate of seven hundred and fifty feet per minute while making a teardrop turn to the right. At greater than standard rate right I added. I learned the owner of the Baron had grown accustomed to operating out of Richland's even at night as long as ceilings were at least a thousand feet, not me. Once on the ground, the pilot wished me luck and departed around five PM. The lobby erupted two men and two women entered walking fast with the guy in the lead talking loudly. As. They entered the guy in the lead. Saw Me and said you must be the pilot from Raleigh. I acknowledge that I was So he said file for Merritt Island Florida and let's get going. I filed an I F, our flight plan, and we were soon off the ground. The owner sat up in front with me, which was fine until he reached up and retarded the throttles right after breaking ground. I, put my hand up to stop him. But he had already pulled them back to climb power. He informed me the engines would last longer if we didn't keep them at full power so long. I told him. I had learned most engine failures occur at first power reduction. So I preferred to wait until reaching a couple of hundred feet before reducing to climb power. It was certainly a debatable point and it was his airplane. So nothing else was set. We landed in. Merritt Island Florida at about eight thirty PM, I was looking forward to getting to a hotel and kicking back, but it was not to be while taxiing into the F. B. O., the owner said, okay. Go back to Richland's and pick up three guys that will be waiting for you and bring them down here. I was stunned. It was at that moment I decided I would not be taking this job. I thought I would do. As he asked knowing, this would be the last time I would be subjected to him. I refilled the airplane filed an Afar flight plan for Bluefield West, Virginia and took off heading north. Bloomfield was the closest airport to Richland's with instrument approach if the weather was good. Enough. I. Would cancel the I. Afar Flight Plan and fly visually to the desired destination. Not Tonight. The weather at the destination wasn't too bad. But it would be late and I would be tired. So I called ahead and told my passengers to meet me in Bluefield. It was a little after midnight when I arrived the weather wasn't too bad. But bad enough to require an instrument approach. I was glad I made the decision to meet my passengers in Bluefield. Putting on fuel and filing an IOF, our flight plan back to Merritt. Island took only a half hour or so and my excited and well lube passengers and I were off for the final flight of the day. After takeoff. The Tower released me to departure control about the time I entered the clouds. A minute or two after contacting departure control? I lost communications. All engine navigation instruments were working fine. Everything was good except my communication radios, I turn them off and back on. I, check the circuit breakers. No good. I. Couldn't hear the controllers and I presumed they couldn't hear me. My clearance was to expect nine thousand feet, ten minutes after departure. So ten minutes into the flight, I climbed to nine thousand feet from my initially assigned altitude. I had already changed my transponder to squawk seventy, six hundred when the radio suddenly started working after a couple of hours, I contacted Jacksonville Center and was asked twice who I was. Later that day I briefed the owner about the radio problem. He said I could take the airplane to Daytona and have it repaired which I did. After two days in Merritt, island, I flew the owner and three others back to Richland's Virginia. I rode with the owner to his office and he informed me how much he was going to pay me to fly for him. I, told him. I wouldn't be taking the job. He paid me for my time. Reimbursed me for my airline flight and had me driven to Tri Cities Airport for my flight back to Raleigh. Sadly. The story doesn't end there. A. Couple of weeks. Later, I got a call from the salesman who had sold the Cessna three ten. He told me the Danish pilot with four passengers aboard had flown the new three ten into the side of a mountain, just outside of Richland's.

Antonio Banderas is mesmerizing in 'Pain and Glory'

"What I think's the performance of his career it's just a terrific performance in a movie that you should all saying you know and look at that I've done my work here I've said no but Antonio I have to say yes you did win an award as best actor Con Film Festival there's nothing award buzz is about all this has that effect you when people are telling you how great you are every time you turn around it's not bad he's you had tolerate think I know you have to put everything in perspective when you are successful also when you have and failures this is the story of our professional life and you had to take it to both both sides of the spectrum the sexually in which we obtain as says in this particular case it's very special to me I've been working with forty years met him for decades ago we have done aid movies together for me has being a pleasure to be invited to with a man that never betrayed himself and there has been absolutely loyal to his personality you may like movie you may not like smooth that's a different deal but today especially in today's world into the cinema to have somebody with that personality without change and just you know being loyal to himself is yeah it sure is and I should say in order to just set this up correctly that in pain and gory you're playing director who doesn't have the name Pedro Almodovar but very much like it looks like you to the point of is here you are in a movie basically playing this man who gave you your start those years ago yeah well the thing is is difficult to play all with somebody who actually lived if the person is still alive leaving more complicated but he's a person is actually giving you action on cut is just behind the camera situation becomes a little bit more complicated because I think wait a minute what are you doing but you know I think the way I've been saying but he's too you know this character. I started creating without knowing about nine years ago and why's that because I work in five movies with better than in the eighties and then for twenty two years with it didn't work we kept our relationship friendship but word so when I went back to him to do a movie called the skin I live in I came with twenty two years of experience and I went to him and said look you know I feel more secure in front of the camera I can do this now complete with my voice I can do that and after a week rehearsing and he laughed hers for like a month before principal he said to me you know all of those things you learn from this twenty two years then a very useful to me well okay so what are you really and time I know confronted him but he just got stuck in my own story and I said no I am you know what I can do with this character video for me and so it was a little tension on the set during the time that we shot movie nothing really dramatic because we're friends but it was dangerous I it got an idea of what the current issue be he got another one when I finish and we opened moving the Toronto Film Festival and they watch it and I thought Oh my God how these men managed to just get this character out of me etc that I didn't even know I had inside and so you know what affliction about being humble started me an eighty known if I was going to have another opportunity to work with him and to go to do that in a completely different set of mine so he came ninety s after he called me incessant on you have this project you're going to see very familiar colored characters painted van in the script and read it and let me know so I read it and I said him. I'm going to go now trying to use all of those things that I used before the table clean slate Afrim zero degree in this character from that point of view he says that's a good idea let's do it later also you know I had impersonal issues during all these years it had attack two and a half years ago and I mentioned this because it was his for for this movie I mean we actors who use the happening in our personal life relied everything we apply that to our Colloton so he said you know that is something in you scenes had a cardiac event that has changed and I don't want you to hide it I want you to show that in this character in this movie in industry off the pain not glory but the paying of the connectivity is very important that you actually are very sincere very honest so I I knew exactly he was talking about and so we provided the cutter too with all of those personal experiences that I have a heart attack does slow you down karate he's he's beset by a lot of physical problems you know he just everything to assistant back pain everything and so that even tries heroin in order to alleviate this thing that he's going to do it so what it's done in this movie and your performance and and everything is it doesn't look on the surface like an film his in have that flamboyance no is slightly different to lower films doe that he's elements of for bio graphic elements movies over never was supposed in this way many people asked me and I think it's good to talk about that ah how much of the movie is real how much of the movie actually happen those events probably not everything that you see on the screen actually happen but you have to think him you know what are we really are the things that we have done and the things that we said or are we also the things that we wanted to say but we didn't say that we wanted to do but we never did I think I'll move over us this movie to actually say do these that he never did but he wanted to do his family to his lovers drew actors us to cinema to life itself in a way the movies basically about reconciliation while coming to terms with live and forgiveness unforgiveness yeah in playing him the question that went through my mind after I saw this was how much of your performance comes from watts in his screenplay and how much comes in from the man you knew for those forty years it's interesting question because this has been one movie that actually came in a completely different way than other works sometimes the information came emotionally and it's kind of difficult explain let me try. various Pacific so he came the morning and read the part of my mother finally gave him the replica and then he was going to read my part he's part he was going to he says he tried again

How a Kentucky Lab Worker Created Dippin' Dots

"On the show today how biologist Kirk Jones dripped ice cream into liquid nitrogen nitrogen and turned it into dipping dots the novelty ice cream brand sold at stadiums malls and theme parks around the World <music> so if I were to distill a show down to a single phrase it future entrepreneur identifies a problem and decides to solve it right. That's what got US lift and AIRBNB IAN dyson vacuums problem solution but in the world of vise screen especially by the end of the twentieth century you could argue that there wasn't really much of a problem to solve yeah you could make more interesting flavors. Maybe Abuse Higher Butterfat milk but reinvented I mean where would you go beyond scoops and soft serve and shakes and popsicles ice cream cakes aches and cookie sandwiches right. I mean how do you out innovate all of that. Well the short answer with a lot of liquid nitrogen which is really where the story of dipping dots begins. It was one thousand nine hundred eighty eight and Kirk Jones was working as a biological researcher and in the lab were vats of liquid nitrogen which may know pretty much freezes anything it touches almost instantly Kurt also happen to be a guy who liked to make his on ice cream and one day hanging on the lab P wondered. Could I use that liquid nitrogen to reinvent stream so weeks later he brought in a jar. HR OF ICE Cream base basically sugar cream and Vanilla Shenley dripped a bit into the liquid nitrogen and instantly those droplets frozen to teeny tiny ice cream beads now. They didn't look like ice cream but once Kerr tasted them he knew he was onto something in those ice cream pellets got him so excited he quit his job to turn that little experiment into dipping dots the ice cream of the future and it would soon spread to shopping malls theme parks eventually sports stadiums today. DIPPING DOTS is a brand that does report three a hundred million dollars in annual sales except it's also a bran that no longer belongs to Kerr Jones in a brand that didn't actually make him rich which means that unlike any of our other episodes this one is almost a cautionary tale about how you can lose the thing so you built and the thing you loved but for now let's start at the beginning in rural southern Illinois were Kirk grew up on his family's farm with his mom dad GRANDPA two older sisters. I remember driving a tractor for the first time from one bar into the other when I was seven years old and you don't play sports and stuff in school but I always felt like when I got home I had to work you know and he'll feed the bigs and do things like that. So it's kind of a very early age I guess learning that responsibility but it it you know looking back. I'm glad I grew up the way that I did. I have no regrets at all is really a good way. Good way to grow up. Did it feel when like when you were a kid. Did it feel like your parents since struggled to keep food on the table or or was the farm pretty prosperous now. It felt like a struggle. You're exposed to all the talks about you know if it doesn't rain by Friday you know we're not going to get made or you have diseases seizes it can get in your you know your pigs that kind of thing so but you know we never went hungry or anything like that but we always knew that we were dependent on a lot of factors that were actually out of our control whether and and things like that so I think maybe that was good in a way Kinda learned to live with risk a little bit yeah. I'm given that your family didn't always have a lot of money around <hes>. Were there ways that you kind of figured out how to earn extra money for yourself. When you were kid kid yeah I mean my dad had a radio and TV repair business and so we had all these tubes laying around and so me and a friend of mine actually started our we'll radio repair business probably in grade school like fifth or sixth grade and then me and him also decided to get into the chicken business one time we ended up what he had ordered hundred chickens to put on his farm and I ordered one hundred on mining we were gonna go together and gather eggs and work together on it and then <hes> me another friend had a <hes> a straw business we call it which is where you take wheat Straw Bale it and we sold that a lot of the people that worked on roads because they would do landscaping when they finished a project they they shoplift strong? put down over the grass seed and so there's always coming up with them little way to make a little extra money did did you would you sort of look at your family's situation you know the whims of the weather or of whether there was market demand and for corn and soybeans or whether there was a some kind of disease that you know and and did you ever think I want to have a different life. I don't I don't WanNa do this as a as a grownup oh I think so <hes> when I went to school I studied microbiology because I really he was interested in farm related things like making ethanol from corn and just things like that but at the end of the day it allowed me to get a job that actually had a salary our which which was really felt pretty good because I've I saw something steady there and I did enjoy the steady paycheck yeah when ahead so you I guess you spend like six year. He spent six years getting your. BA and your masters degree in microbiology graduate I think this is around <hes> nineteen ninety-six and you get your first job with a company called altech biotechnology yeah <hes> just outside Lexington in a little town goal Nicholasville and and we lived in Lexington <hes> about eight or nine miles more or went to work <hes> what what was that company doing what was there was their business what they were starting to get off into the animal feed business making bacteria cells that could actually put back into the animal feed so in other words you you know if we eat yogurt and it has lactobacillus Senate and that's good for us and they call it probiotics <hes> sure we would concentrate those down we would freeze them and then we would freeze driving into the powder so that's kind of how I got started with. altech was in the animal feed side which is what they really grew with over the next several years and to be clear I mean why were you freezing. These culture was it so that like essentially don't die so that they would keep their potency. Yes and you WANNA freeze them as quickly as you can. Because if you ever notice notice like an ice tray and you put it in the freezer and you come back thirty or forty minutes you'll see little needles across the surface. That's from freezing something very slowly if he frees up very fast those ice crystals are smaller so if you freeze the bacteria sales quickly you get tiny ice crystals and then there's a good chance that those <unk> cells can come back to live so I started playing with liquid nitrogen which I had never really worked with before but I knew it was very cold who's three hundred twenty degrees below zero zero Fahrenheit and I found that you could pour the nitrogen into the cultures and freeze of big big Blob or you could pour the cultures into the nitrogen and freeze a big BLOB <music> but I've found that if you dribbled it in a little at a time that you could actually form pellets Scott like freezing raindrops words see still still have the active probiotics in these pellets. Let me let me just ask you about about liquid nitrogen I because the freezing point right <hes> for or liquid for waters thirty two degrees zero degrees centigrade. You're talking about something that is minus three hundred degrees Fahrenheit. I I have to imagine that working with liquid nitrogen very dangerous. It would be the equivalent working with lava right right just in the opposite way yeah <hes> it is dangerous dangerous but what I tell people because we've had a lot of people at worked around it over the last thirty years but I tell them it's just like it's Kinda handling boiling water. I said you have to treat it with respect but everybody works with boiling water if they're cook but the other danger that you have with liquid nitrogen is if you're in a very closed in area it can displace oxygen so you're not on the Fox Dejan you into your lungs but other than that it's a lot like hot water. You know you wouldn't WanNa Fall Nevada hot

If you're an american you've ever ever had a conversation with someone from another country about the weather. You've probably been a little confused when he or she said the afternoon. Temperature is a nice twenty one degrees to to you that might sound like a chilly winter day but to them. It's a pleasantly warm springtime temperature. That's because virtually every other country throughout the world uses the celsius temperature scale part of the metric system which denotes the temperature at which water freezes as zero degrees and the temperature at which boils as one hundred degrees but the u._s. u._s. And a few other holdouts the cayman islands the bahamas believes in palo clinging to the fahrenheit scale in which water freezes at thirty two degrees and boils at two hundred and twelve twelve that means that the twenty one degrees celsius temperature that we previously mentioned is the equivalent of a balmy seventy degrees fahrenheit in the united states. The persistence of fahrenheit is one of those puzzling american idiosyncrasies like how the u._s. uses the word soccer to describe what the rest of the planet calls football so why is it that the u._s. Us uses a different temperature scale and why doesn't it switch to be consistent with the rest of the world. There doesn't seem to be a logical answer except perhaps inertia americans generally. I don't really seem to distrust the metric system. A twenty fifteen poll found that just twenty one percent of the public favoured converting to metric measures while sixty four percent were opposed it might make more sense of fahrenheit was old school in celsius with some modern upstart a sort of the new coq of temperature but in reality they were created only about two decades apart part fahrenheit was created by its namesake. A german scientist named daniel gabriel fahrenheit who in the early seventeen hundreds was the first known person design alcohol and mercury thermometers that we're both precise and consistent so that any of his instruments would register the same temperature reading in a given place at a given moment thanks to his working skill in managing glass when fahrenheit started out the key thing he was interested in was coming up with the same temperature reading all the time not comparing temperatures of different things or different times of day but when he presented a paper on his system for measuring temperature to the royal society of london in seventeen twenty four he apparently realized that he had come up with the standard temperature scale as well. We spoke with don hilfiger a research meteorologist to colorado state university's cooperative institute for research in the atmosphere and and also president of the u._s. Metric association a group that advocates conversion to the metric system he explained basically the fahrenheit scale was devised a zero as the coldest oldest temperature for a mix of ice and salt water and the upper end was thought to be body temperature approximately ninety six degrees fahrenheit making a scale that could be progressively divided by two do this resulted in the freezing melting temperature being thirty two degrees fahrenheit not very useful number. The boiling temperature for water was then set at two twelve again not not a very useful number the temperature's one hundred and eighty degrees apart again a multiple of two nevertheless the system apparently sounded pretty good to officials officials of the british empire who adopted fahrenheit as their standard temperature scale which is how eventually became established in the american colonies. Well meanwhile though in seventeen forty forty two a swedish astronomer named anders celsius came up with a less unwieldy system based on multiples of ten in which there was precisely a one hundred degree difference between the freezing and boiling temperatures of water at sea level the neat one hundred degrees symmetry of the celsius scale made it a natural fit for the metric system which was formerly developed by the french in the late seventeen eighteen hundreds but the english speaking world nevertheless clung stubbornly to its preference for awkward units such as the pound in the inch and fahrenheit went along for the ride but finally in nineteen sixty one the u._k. Met office then called the u._k. Meteorological office switched teasing celsius to describe temperatures in weather forecasts in order to be consistent with other european countries. Most of the rest of the world soon followed suit with the notable exception of the u._s. Or the national weather service still publishes temperature data atta in fahrenheit. Even though its own staff long ago switched celsius hilter explained the n._w._s. Catering to the public by reporting in degrees fahrenheit whereas whereas much of their operations such as forecast models used degrees celsius and automated weather observations the temperatures recorded in celsius as well should we choose to metric chicken weather reports the fahrenheit layer. That's now added for the u._s. Public could be removed. We also spoke via email with jay hendrix who heads the u._s. National institute standards and technologies thermodynamic meteorology group he points out that the fahrenheit scale does have one significant advantage quote. It has more degrees over the range range of ambient temperatures that are typical for most people. This means that there's a finer grain temperature difference between seventy degrees fahrenheit and seventy one degrees fahrenheit then there is between twenty one degrees celsius twenty two degrees celsius since a human can tell the difference of one degree fahrenheit. This scale is more precise for the human experience on the other hand though the advantage goes away. If a fractional temperature in celsius used hendrix explained for example the equivalent celsius temperature for seventy and seventy ninety one fahrenheit are equivalent to twenty one point one and twenty one point seven degrees celsius.

Is Permafrost Really Permanent?

"Brain stuff lauren Bogle bomb here in two thousand ten. A woolly mammoth carcass was discovered in Siberia near the coast of the laptev sea nicknamed Yuka. This specimen of the long extinct beast died around twenty eight thousand years ago yet her body was astonishingly well preserved complete with patches of reddened for brain that was largely intact and nucleus like cell structures so how did her body lasts so long without rotting away the short answer is Yuka was frozen but not inside some glacier iceberg after death you can became encased in a layer of what's known as permafrost. Let's break down what that is as we know. Water freezes at thirty two degrees Fahrenheit four zero degrees Celsius permafrost is any ground materials such as soil sediment and rock that remains at or below freezing temperatures for at least two consecutive years. It's about twenty five percent of all the land area in the Northern Hemisphere is known to contain permafrost. It was American paleontologist Simone W Mueller who originally coined the term permafrost appointment two of the words permanent and frost despite that name permafrost doesn't last forever thanks to climate change. It's been been thawing in large quantities. This has serious ramifications for the environment and the economy generally speaking permafrost tends to occur in places where The average air temperature is zero degree Celsius or lower every year. According to the national snow and Ice Data Center most of the Northern Hemisphere's permafrost sits between the high high latitudes of sixty and sixty degrees north Siberia Canada Alaska and parts of Scandinavia are loaded with this frigid turf further south permafrost tends to be found in high elevation areas like the Tibetan Plateau and this was elps permafrost isn't as widespread below the equator but it does underlie parts of New Zealand the Andes Mountains and Arctic adjust as its locations vary so does its composition. It's not uniform. Some sections are ice-free while others are made up of more than thirty percent ice likewise the depth age and extent of permafrost. Ken Vary widely oftentimes permafrost permafrost sits beneath an active layer of ground that is a layer that thaws and re freezes seasonally. The permafrost itself can measure anywhere from less than three feet. That's one meter thick to more than five thousand feet or fifteen hundred meters thick and it can get Patchy Northern Alaska occupies a continuous permafrost zone that means permafrost underlies more than ninety percent of the local terrain but at lower latitudes. It's a different story pretty much everything south of the Brooks mountain range sits discontinuance tenuous permafrost zone here permafrost resides under a smaller percentage of the land surface. That's partially because as counter intuitive as it may sound snow. Snow is a really good insulator so when thick blankets of snow stick around all year long they might keep the ground too warm for permafrost likewise in spots. That's where permafrost already exists insulating layers of surface level snow are liable to heat it up but while snows and impediment. Pete is a boon widespread in and around the southern Arctic. Pete is a kind of ground material. That's made up partially decayed organic matter like mosses or swamp plants by and large the. Ground beneath it is kept cool shielded from solar heat this pete safeguards permafrost evergreen forests lend a helping hand to their thickly thickly needled branches pine trees limit the amount of sunlight and snow that hits the surface in the process the evergreens help keep permafrost thawing so permafrost is common below the clustered pines and high elevation high altitude areas the arrangement is mutually beneficial since liquid water can't sleep through hard permafrost. I it acts like a drainage barrier unfrozen water. That's absorbed into the active layer gets trapped. They're barred from travelling deeper into the earth. This water sustained some of the plants that live at the surface although not all permafrost sticks around more than a couple of years some is quite old at minimum. The permafrost in prudhoe Bay Alaska is thought thought to be five hundred thousand years of age and some of the permafrost beneath the Canadians Yukon territory could be more than seven hundred thousand years old inside the ladder scientists. It is found in ancient horse leg complete d._N._A.. Samples Permafrost can keep all kinds of organic matter preserved over long periods of time in two thousand twelve Russian scientists is regenerated live plants from ice age fruits that have been encased in permafrost for about thirty thousand years unfortunately as permafrost thaws the trapped organic organic material decomposes releasing carbon and methane into the atmosphere those gases exacerbate climate change and the bad news is according to a twenty nineteen can study published in nature communications various permafrost deposits around the world have warmed up by a couple of degrees between the years two thousand seven and two thousand sixteen right now approximately one point seven billion tons of carbon is trapped in permafrost scientists. Don't know how much of this will be released into the atmosphere. If current trends continue continue or how quickly it will In the city of New Orleans gresh alone more than one hundred residential buildings have been damaged because the one solid permafrost beneath them is softening the warming permafrost has has also triggered landslides drained lakes and torn roads apart. It's yet another reason to be concerned about our contributions to climate change but to end on a positive note remember the woolly mammoth Yuga found in Siberian permafrost in two thousand ten. She was so well preserved that an early twenty nineteen scientists were able to extract eighty eight eight nucleus like structures from her cells an attempt to coax them back to life. The team injected the nuclei into mouse ovarian cells and while the cells never fully divided divided they did complete the process called spindle assembly which is a step where chromosomes attached to spindle structures before the parent cell breaks into two daughter cells. Perhaps as genetics progresses will be able to help the process

"zero degrees" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM

"Are now or even zero degrees of warming and two degrees of warming. And I know that the range of possible outcomes the centuries between two degrees and four degrees of warming. So how optimistic I am is based as much around four degrees of warming as it is around two. Now, two degrees is hellish. I think about our best case scenario, and it is truly alarming. If we get to two degrees. One really remarkable paper demonstrated last year, the air pollution effects alone would kill an additional hundred and fifty million people beyond what the air pollution at one point five degrees would would cost that is our best case scenario. So when I talk about being optimistic, I'm talking about a range that starts at a death toll of a hundred and fifty million people and extends to a world four degrees. Warmer where we would have eventually hundreds of feet of sea level rise horrible impacts on agriculture and public health beyond our comprehension. Now, a lot of people would want to just sort of recoil from even that best case scenario human impulse. But my own instinct is to say every inch of warming makes a difference. Every inch of warming means averting some suffering or causing more suffering. And that at no point should we give up because while on the one hand it's already too late to avert anything south of two degrees of warming. It's also never too late to change. The course of our warming and make lives more prosperous and healthier and safer and more abundant and happy are going forward. And so we should never ever. Stop caring. Never give up because it is always possible to make a difference. And I think that we will. I do not think that will end up before degrees. I think it's likely we ended up at about two and a half or three degrees by the end of the century that again will be to any perspective that we know today hellish. But if you know what's possible at four degrees. North of four degrees. It counts optimistic outcome. And that's where I am.

"Three one zero one point five. So what do you think? How do you feel about this? It just drives me crazy that every time I go to the gas station, and I wanna put my own gas. If it's a hot day. I feel bad about the the guy out, you know, zero degrees last week, I need gas. You know, it's five o'clock in the morning. I pull into my usual Conaco gestation thirty eight and a poor guys got interrupt this phone conversation. He's gotta walk over that a pump. And we played his game that we play every week. Whereas McCaw stay in be warm. It's okay. I'll do it. I don't care Marigny way. Get out in the thing. You're done you're out now. Wait. And I'll tell you I too wouldn't wanna get added a little cubicle. One zero degrees outside. You know, or I wouldn't want to come out of it when it's a hundred and fifty degrees outside so regardless of that one eight hundred two eight three one zero one point five what is the problem with being able to pump your own gas in New Jersey? Especially now, especially now since you know, you've got struggling businesses as nobody cares about the gas station owners. Nobody cares about the people who basically make New Jersey run. If they leave what are you gonna do? And they make crazy money one eight hundred two eight three one zero one point five has it ever happened to you. Have you ever been in a situation where like you've been in a rush you had to go to work you had to be somewhere you need gas. And you're stuck in line. You're stuck at the mercy of everybody else in line just staring at that pump with the orange cone in front of knowing all you have to do is just go over there and in five minutes your gun. But instead you're waiting and waiting as the guy goes to one goes to the other goes to the one as a conversation. He's talking to somebody else. They wanna talk to him. Oh my God. One eight hundred two eight three one zero one point five. Yeah. And you're sitting there staring at you watch. Right. No problem. Am I getting screwed now? One eight hundred two eight three one zero one point five I've been in that situation, you know, too many times. Yup. And you're just helpless. Bill is in Woodbridge, New Jersey. Auto one point five. Hey, bill. Hey, what's going on? I'm good. How are you? Doing. Well. I decided one quick take on this. And that, you know, most of the time if you're getting New Jersey, you know, sometimes the pumps don't work as they should. So it's almost like, you know, seven times out of ten you got to kind of get out and hold that pump and place anyway. So that it doesn't click. So you're not sitting there for twenty minutes. Yeah. And what happens, you know, he's supposed to do that? And meanwhile, you know, you don't even realize it. So the guy puts it in to think pops out you're sitting there doing all you gotta do you look up and you see like a dollar fifty in your car. Yup. And say, hey, you're good to go. You turn your car on you got a quarter tank when you wanted to fill so and that's happened way. Too. Many times Bill thanks for the call to New Jersey one zero one point five Linda's in glass burrow, under jersey one zero one point five. Hi, how are you? Good. You. Okay. Actually, I I don't disagree with anything that you're saying how ever there's one thing that I would like to shoot at the state chooses to eliminate the. All of the gas stations to provide service and want to do some self service, which they quest. One thing I'm to be seventy two on Friday and a birthday cake. You want them to give you a birthday cake. But I'm but I'm handicapped, and there are a lot of handicapped person. Now, my daughter lives in Virginia and to travel down there before I down. I have to make sure I fill up to New Jersey. 'cause I need the service. I just need. I'm not saying rid of it. I'm saying you have the choice you then you would go to the full service island, and you would get your gas there and say don't make. Yeah. That's it Linda, thanks for the call. I mean, that's the thing. I'm not saying, you know, eliminate the full service. I'm saying the option of self service. It's just such a no brainer. And you sit there and all the promises that Murphy likes to make his one, you know, what let me make me governor. And I will get you. Self-service guests. I really believe that we're past the point now in New Jersey where that's a problem, you know, at one time people get all fended Sweeney refuses to put it up for a vote. Damn. It's not right. It's not fair. You know, there are people doing business in New Jersey. We're trying to make money just like everybody else. And they're being held back. And I'm talking about the gas station owner, and I'm also talking about the workers of New Jersey who needs to get the work and don't have time to be sitting and gas lines one eight hundred two eight three one point five where are you on this? Now that we have the minimum wage of fifteen dollars an hour. There is one business in New Jersey. They could prosper. They could have the opportunity to make more money not being allowed to make the money. Then it could be making. And that's not right. Should we be able to pump our own gas in New Jersey and still have the full service islands? He's New Jersey one zero one point five fast.

But it's a continual burnt so the tracks stayed heated up. So they wouldn't break. It was it was pretty impressive. But I'd never seen tracks on fire before I never would have thought.

It just seems like there are more haters now than ever before. I we're done with work done with cold weather. Everyone's happy when it doesn't snow everyone. Cheers when it's rained instead of any type of snow precip, not everybody. I know there's people like to snow ski and all that stuff. Snowmobile? Yeah. You can go north and do that we are of north.

"Chloride so free graphic is like at the freezing point oak is water ammonium chloride, which is assault. And he waited for it to reach equilibrium. The thermometer then was placed into the mixture and the liquid in the thermometer allowed to descend to its lowest point the thermometers reading. There was taken as zero degrees. Okay. The second reference point was selected as the reading of the thermometer when it was placed in Stillwater when was just forming on the surface and this was assigned as thirty two degrees Fahrenheit, the third calibration point taken as ninety six degrees Fahrenheit was selected. As the thermometer reading when the instrument was placed under the armpit or in the mouth. Fahrenheit came up with the idea that mercury boils around three hundred degrees on this temperature scale work by other showed that water boils at about one hundred eighty degrees above its freezing point and the Fahrenheit scale was later redefined to make the freezing bowling interval. Exactly. One hundred eighty degrees. Convenient value as one eighty is a highly composite number meaning it's easily evenly divisible into many fractions. It is because of the skills redefinition later that normal body temperature today is taken us ninety eight point six degrees. Whereas before it was ninety six degrees on Fahrenheit, original scale, the Fahrenheit scale was the primary temperature standard for climactic industrial and medical purposes in English speaking countries until the nineteen seventies nowadays replaced by the celsius scale used in the rest of the world Fahrenheit died in the Hague and was buried there at the coaster clerk or the cloister church, and you can find the Gdansk Fahrenheit monument in Gdansk Poland, which just lays an antique thermometer to remember.
