Now Tommy Tucker WW well AM my famine dot com. David Blake in Georgia executed it's 18 execution of Tony sixteen putting them in the lead. So far there leading the way yet. And the guy told the psychiatrist he really didn't wanna die but he also didn't wanna continue living in prison that's kind of how I feel about this knee at this point. Doc the old me don't go anywhere but you know it's going to be yet. I've always liked Joseph Biden and you know if you hate anybody it's democratic and text me right now. But it you know in light of all the stories about trump and transition and so forth and I saw a piece on CBS news that says he's actually. In no way did he's not any further behind and was Barack Obama or others that this would Jill Biden had to say after he. I ate lunch with Mike he and Joseph Biden ate lunch with Mike and as pants design and offers name. Oh does he day. We are ready and do what I never got one that's never regretted it. CN anyway I was there but it BR Wright made its debt to me is leadership. Yeah you know and really and in during this time when people are you know margin mysteries ever. And the press seems to be going crazy about they love this word chaos again. Yet on and then Biden comes thousand asked me c'mon it happens relax. I'd like to hang out we deal by nine Italians like to hang out Barack Obama. I don't necessarily agree with all of their philosophies politically but I think they'd be too nice guys saying Allah George W. Bush to let you know with her nobody's calling them. Programs in Charlotte is about Wi-Fi people prefer Wi-Fi out there. As soon as study finds. It's and apparently it's impacting. Many people's lives in other ways like you know that you don't have Wi-Fi in the hotel not nine. You know I'll free Wi-Fi yeah. As a man my choice of free why fire you know the other country. And it's ultimately the lessons for us well that wouldn't have to new times in Atlanta they aren't new days. About Donald Trump stance on climate change. He wants to back the US out of latest climate accord and has previously called climate change a hoax. Created by the Chinese to give them a business advantage. You think Donald Trump's policies will be great for the economy or disasters for the environment Agassi could be both. We'll talk about it when we come back with David Shipley meteorologist professor. A practice at Penn State a retired navy rear admirals and right off the bat attacks comes in saints game day and we're talking about whether change well let me tonight. Talk about the saints later on so hang on below patient. But when it comes to climate change or not. As it relates to jobs as it relates to regulations on company as it relates to the environment depending upon what side of the argument you are. AA is Kabila to more important than net as the time goes by so just. It's all baloney nannies wanted in the second rain. From it is we've had our guests on before and Donald Trump back in the days said that global. Climate change was. Plan instituted by the Chinese of big fraud instituted by the Chinese it was a money. Making com did fraud if you will and he's appointed guy. That is one of the stoppages and I climate change people that you would ever want to meet and he is going to be the directors the EPA. So I'll ask you about that do you think that. Do you do you think that. We're in good hands as it relates to climate change or do you think. It's just the climate is changing and it's not man made. I'd like in OT 60187. Media Dave tightly joins us right now admiralty tip lead meteorologist professor practice. At Penn State retired navy rear admiral good morning sooner. You guys came back at Penn State football allies in your. Yeah we're we're happening great great years they're against call my agent so you know it it's yeah that the but the part. And and nobody is there anything to do with what happens it's good that the programs coming back the climate are. Yeah in Spanish Edward Johnson. Not violate I was gonna say it's it is is that we great that the program. Programs like that come back and you know and in the SEC you bought the program up up there and follow it. So tell me a vote who it is a Donald Trump is proposing had the EPA. Well I'm not sure who we're gonna have to. Said the EPA beat Margaret bill was pretty good condition that they're going to try to pick who's going into the Environmental Protection Agency. He is solo in time a Klein climate change guy is Xena. Aren't there yet the society yet very long record keeping call and so they. Before but it's again. The recent tax. I saw let's talk about that because somebody young Texan already there's a difference and whether or not the climate it happens man has nothing to do with it. You're take admiral. Well very very simply they requirement certainly does change through actual forces cordoned colonel variability. It changes in the long term because that came to the sun. But it also changes because if we put more heat trapping gases carbon dioxide. Apple also. The climate it would not one or the other in fact bow and the one that the big factor right now it's is what human men. And that. Primarily goes to carbon emissions from fossil fuels more. Exactly it's mostly carbon emissions that some cement. The open and there are fairly content. Talking about climate change with admiralty deeply meteorologist professor practice at Penn State and retired navy rear admiral. Com so for people add in seems like we've had this discussion a hundred times normal again but. Meant that maybe we should just recorded admiral and played again. But that I would get in touch base with the NC you do one now. I know Wednesday night that the find out what's going on them and now. And talk about Penn State football and nothing else. I'd sell over people and he has put it out there people that say this is when this happens. We've with the climate. With the earth it's got nothing to do with man. A bomb and for us to try to do anything about it would not only be useless but it would be extremely expensive and it would give other nations an advantage over us. Jump in where you feel comfortable. Oh yeah sure though. So I mean again visited them basic type conflicts that we talked about before it goes back well on here. We understand very well. That carbon tax cheat and it's he would what we know we know they come come become prom. All the things that we do night I'd say that not. That town that you and I and everybody else that would mean we have been tremendous tremendous good this year. I'll pop old people there it is literally enable the tremendous flight quickly that we had though. This is not about demonizing the you'll hike in fuel company the right thing we've realized that it should so how can we change how we change no way. Odd that not the economy. Grew to greet don't change it or couldn't deal with the consequences but it had literally you could launch. I would be with a number of political and and their villages there watching and the reason their wedding news there's no lights on in the Arctic so yeah. How water are quoting just what definitely you know but walkers were voting. The coastal regions and they've been showing it when equine equivalent in. Look like the landing is the only thing out in the city are you beat their their opinion so that stopped happening. And we he would. Like you can tie it and I know admiral what people said to themselves that are doubters when you do said that they saw themselves. Yeah but it's gotten I'm gonna do with man it's cyclical thing that the yours goes through come on admiral not that it ever or are. And pat. Well act actually again but long term right now in the cyclical why we were just strictly natural. Would probably be getting a little bit cooler. But I'm actually gone down what sort of in between on YouTube and that there were no people here you know action out. Shuttle with everything that's just what it's that know people look at what we are. And anything that climate like now would be getting slightly cool. We know that art is getting relief warmer really after the smoke yeah the Arctic. Our winters are starting later in the during the earlier all kind of we all know. So. That's how we kind note that he's not just could not cool by. We know that I'm content changed we you know that's what can drop in natural cycle how much he could come Sunday could include India into the atmosphere. And that is. And the said that actually going around a little that we can pour on the plan of some and I'll have to be so. I'd buy the only you know and I looked dead give a couple more minutes and come back from the burger. Tyler added as. It's all part of the environment when I mean by that is if you look at an ecosystem man is part of the ecosystem now and is a philosophical argument there's not a scientific one. But that man was part of the development of the earth and as a result. They're knowledge led to the development of fossil fuels and machines that burned them in a lifestyle that encourages that. So as a result I think it is strictly environmental but I think it's environmental because of the development of man and severed does that make sense for the cents philosophically do you admiral. Barack certain equipment that we sent an issue yet and demand out of the ecosystem bright yeah I mean we're working. It also were worked here but we also know dot paper so wonderful rank amongst other than it used so. We also bring to extract. You know the bounty appear including fossil fuels right we've got a tremendous like style. And put battle of Davidson brings so that we couldn't figure OK we're starting to get into problem or so figure out these sorts it is cheap. Our great lifestyle. But make sure that we're not that's not the planet I'm not calling me to do. I those super moon flooding in Miami's saints playing Carolina tonight to get big fire going on in North Carolina maybe smoky conditions. We're gonna get back to climate change in a moment you know I don't think he. I don't think there's turmoil at the trump transition team anymore it can't then there is anywhere else or has been anywhere else with any new guy coming in to be a president. Maybe because he's out of politics and he's trying to keep outsiders out but I find it interesting what led to what is being. Speculated. As to what led to Chris Christie's exit that this kind of interests as an interesting back story if you don't know. I bunkered trumps. Husband. Was sent away to prison and prosecuted by Chris Christie when he was an attorney general. In. New Jersey back in the day back in a day. And the husband commissioners junior at issue calling said that he wanted to be a prosecutor Julie saw how. He says crime it's pretty clear ruling comes a white like murder liberal when it comes a white collar crime the aids it's so. What ambiguous I guess I'm paraphrasing him here but it seems as those that. They might use Chris Christie is they needed him to get elected and then this on and on Donald Trump's son in law stepped forward and said. From you know I've beaten now. You're done over iconic character into the curb right on Monica's. Father in laws denies there husband Don and and enough night Monica's husband hive Monica's Hobbits all yes that's when I meant sorry thank you McLaren enough. Bombs it but he was prosecuted by Chris Christie. And that again I think they might. You know kept him around. And on and she urges beat asserted you don't find and yeah I need to support. And then it's on links. 64218. Before seven more about climate change you and Donald Trump and are pretty jaguar opinion polls do you think climate changes are real concern Blake where do you think those numbers are you pretty good. At predicting these do you think climate change is a real concern. I'm gonna save right now who. 50%. Nailed it. As usual barring. Dave typically meteorologist professor of practice at ten seed retired navy rear admiral withers a talk about. Climate change President Obama president elect trump the differences variant. Has President Obama and his eight years made any inroads in terms of manmade climate change I'm just gonna say it to be fair admiral if in fact anybody. Believes it's happening and can president elect trump. In four years or eight years what make it worse or put respect to where we war. I think it's agree questioned how meaner and I think. President Clinton's yet more. Credit war good things related there and they get more. It's not saying what that the greater bat. But when I look at. You know some of the positive development we had all our four part six years it really being driven by economic Ingrid cracking revolution. By natural gas being much more available art is gone down that honestly what really beaten. Huge issue for cold not so much that will regulations. Are really a simple but simple economics cheaper to run a power plants now one natural gas at Ole. So I don't think Donald Trump and out frankly be able to reverse what he does something like and cracking impact and I don't think people. So I think a lot of that it in the keep going the credits for renewable energy Kohler Wi and those were packed. By Republican congress last year signed into law against it could be read you know op I'm done it could be reaped little. But my guesses Donald Trump got other crime and then go back and repealed a law so. I don't think. For the climate it's probably not great. But my guess is it's not sort of cataclysmic event that sometimes eat your department. About. And tell people admiral Lee if you can about the Paris climate records a quick background on that and what is president elect trump have likely to do about that. Sure so the pair a court that juncture many of your listeners know it was an agreement actually about a year. Are almost every country in the world basically had it not only do we need to limit you are. Out warming that happened so when it. But we're gonna do that kinda opening neutral voluntary pay. So you know he may be go to your church where somebody says well bring chip and then I'll bring that there that you bring strength. You know you're all well and hearing but yet. And that what kind of on the country of the world where are were cooked at it was a voluntary thing now now O'Donnell. He's going to. Pull out of that. Other countries and simply ignore the left and quickly to her. Bickered on nick at actually. Packs are good because we pulled out of something that we eat we agreed our. They could have simply Wear it because you know I tape recorder termed it will be done. Or they could. Where they could try to engage and we don't know we don't know what the country are gonna do but again vote go walk. Is really getting written in greenhouse reduction. Between now exactly because the economics are not because. Government policy right now though Rangers again it's not great but I don't think it's going to be the adequate. Doctor admiral we're in a lightning round a case it was quickly Kansas city's. But the dollar values are triple keep them in minus on money evident announcing a station has been found on a remote island in Russia. Since the eyes has receded enough which says to me that. Seven years ago there was also no eyes and ears of the ice is receiving the same level as seven years ago for question marks that Imus story. About the global warming in the forties. OK very very simply there we go back through all record we've seen at the right right now is much work globally that. Mean you can't find one click on the your weekly one border action sure was more like the forty remember that looks a crops. Big space scale and be kind enough. I'm a combined three and here they called it the year with those summer and there are war icebergs in the Delaware River did George Washington's issue because that. Very pithy humor. I. That is how does the admiral explain the mini ice age we just in the late seventeen hundreds. And please hand the admiral discuss the topic of areas on a word on earth that are cooling just the same as areas of the earth that are warming. Okay lot watts to one actors so that we're getting late in the in the Delaware. I think Washington would probably want to pattern of beat by car or what I want them to have a good time. But back kind of showed that we were in a cooler climate Pakistan which makes a lot of sense that we are black screen actors. I'll put the year without a our that we driven by really really big you know auction Coke crack the color output a lot of stuff. Wake up into the atmosphere like the uptight which he won the jetliner and that they would want done. You block the sun a lot colder. While cooler I mean here in summer well clout as a whole new coal and jurors or not. Manages. Your. Week analysts admiral. Look thank you for Colin. Thank you for taking a timeless Elena have you on later one time we can come on. Maybe 9 o'clock central time and talk to a new audience and and just to have some more conversation that is you don't mind. I don't regret it that pleasures oh Aso you have a great Thanksgiving Christmas and 2017. Are they geezer. Admiral David to at least continued talk about climate change you feel like do you think climate change is a real concern. The approach the M appointment of Myron. Can be part of the transition team he has been is spoken of as being the new head of the EPA. Com on those on your radar not do you care and other tanks guns in here. From there have been multiple life changes after each ice age you warm up team and there were no combustion engine in greenhouse gases caused by humans. Please explain shift in the magnetic North Pole does. Of that evidence thankfully generals gonna you know be with that. I'm in this one what's up with no smoke on the North Shore I don't know but maybe somebody does I would guess one of those fires that happens in the fall. A marsh fires that get set and and burns underground forever and ever and I hope not but we don't know will talk more when we come back about restriction. Hills and the presidential campaign.
