399: Who We Are at Core, 8/6/2021

From WHYY | Part of the The Pulse series | 59:00

3000x3000_itunes_thepulse_1_small On this rebroadcast of The Pulse: Who are you? There are dozens of ways to answer that question, from your name and nationality, to your relationships and job, all the way down to the nature of your soul. But the more we zoom in, the more the self can feel like an impressionist painting — from afar, you see distinct shapes, but the closer you look, the more it dissolves into a million tiny pieces. So what is the self, really? What is it that makes us who we are? On this week’s episode, we explore what scientists are learning about the concept of the “self,” and how deep it truly runs. We hear stories about the eroding effects of Alzheimer’s — and whether our memories make us who we are; what diaries can tell us about our best and worst selves; and what it really means to be self-aware.

2021-08-06 Jay Inslee, BP and Washington’s Climate Story

From Climate One | Part of the Climate One series | 58:57


Host: Greg Dalton


Jay Inslee, governor, Washington State

Tom Wolf, senior manager for government affairs on West Coast, BP

Leonard Forsman, chairman of the Suquamish Tribe

Earlier this year, Washington state passed a bill to put a price on carbon pollution across a huge swath of its economy. But it didn’t get there easily.

In 2016, shortly after the Paris climate agreement was ratified, the state voted down a measure that would have imposed a carbon tax and reduced the state sales tax. In 2018, BP and other oil companies spent $30 million against a similar measure, which also failed. But this year, BP and several more former opponents of climate policy came on board, along with environmentalists and tribes. 

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee says public consciousness about the climate emergency is changing quickly.  

“People are now realizing the threat to their personal hopes and dreams, that’s the fundamental change. And the reason they're realizing that it is no longer an abstraction. In 1998 or 1999 when I invited Al Gore to come give his presentations to my colleagues,  it was a graph. Now it's a picture of dead coral all around the world from warming and acidification,” Inslee says. “And that's why we have to be aggressive, assertive, take no prisoners and persevere,” Inslee says.

Inslee says Washington learned from California's experience passing a carbon cap measure in crafting its own bill. They’ve also focused on redressing past harms, with at least 35% of the revenue from the bill going to overburdened communities and 10% going to tribal projects and programs. The bill also expands air quality monitoring in those communities. 

“We’ve crafted our environmental justice ways to make sure that minority and communities of poverty that are the first and the worst hit by climate change are benefited adequately by the dollars that are invested,” Inslee says.

Some tribes criticized Inslee’s line-item veto of language in the bill dealing with tribal consultation. 

“Some tribal leaders are very upset by it, others like me were more philosophical about it,” says Leonard Forsman, chairman of the Suquamish Tribe. “We were a little frustrated by it but we've got other things that we're working on that the state and governor have been supportive of, so we feel like we can work with them to try to get some language that is acceptable and achieves the goals that we have for a meaningful tribal consultation.”

Inslee defended his veto, saying the original language was too expansive and he’s organizing a summit with tribes to work out new consultation language.

Support from tribes helped get the measure through the Washington legislature, as did support from BP, who opposed a similar measure in 2018. 

Tom Wolf with BP says their change of position was partly due to the 2021 legislation making the carbon price economy-wide, as well as the company’s own internal decision to become a net zero company by 2050. He says BP knows the market and world are changing. 

“And if you’re not adapting to the new market, the low carbon market that the Paris Accords are working toward, everyone's working toward, your business is not gonna be successful,” Wolf says. “We are transforming from an international oil and gas company to an integrated energy company.  We’re doing that because it's good for business, it's good for investors, it's good for our board, it's good for our employees and it's also good for the environment.”

Gov. Inslee says he welcomes support from all quarters to get the necessary steps in place to address the climate emergency. 

“An attitude of disrupting the status quo is a necessary survival mechanism for the human species right now,” he says. “Because the status quo is deadly it’s fatal it will destroy economies and the biology that we exist on.”

Not My Circus (#1575)

From A Way with Words | Part of the A Way with Words series | 54:00

Awww_logo_color_square An lovely evening of classical music at San Diego's new Rady Shell at Jacobs Park leads to a conversation with an audio engineer about the term cocktail party effect, referring to the brain's ability to focus in on the sound of one conversation despite being in a crowded room of people all talking to each other. 

Paul from Omaha, Nebraska, says as a result of watching the College World Series in that city, he and his son wondered when sports announcers started using the word cheese to describe a pitcher's fastball, and such variants as throwing cheese, hard cheese, and high cheese. It likely derives from a word in Farsi, Urdu, and Hindi that sounds like the word cheese, that means a "thing" or "item," which migrated into British English as the big cheese, meaning "the big thing" or "the main thing." In the same way that the word stuff, meaning the quality of a pitcher's throwing. The best and most comprehensive reference work for the language of baseball is The Dickson Baseball Dictionary by Paul Dickson. (Bookshop|Amazon)

Piper from Reno, Nevada, wonders why a movie trailer is called a trailer when it comes at the beginning of a film. Isn't a trailer something that follows something else?

A Simi Valley, California, listener writes to ask if any other families use the term shaky cheese for "Parmesan cheese shaken out of a can." Indeed they do, and other families apply the term scrapey cheese to "cheese scraped over a dish of food."

Quiz Guy John Chaneski's puzzle features sentences that include a short word that anagrams to another word, and is defined by yet another word in the sentence. For example, if the clue is I can get no research done because the room is so dusty, what's the anagram, and what's the definition?

Mia from Iowa City, Iowa, says she and her fiance disagree about the intensity of meaning in the words bummed and bummer. Does the term to bum someone out refer to "being a source of mild aggravation" or does it imply something closer to "leaving one feeling devastated"?

The English adjective fastuous comes from Latin fastuosus, meaning "proud or haughty," and applies to someone who is "characterized by excessive pride, vanity, or self-importance." Fastuosity refers to "an ostentatious show of wealth."

Robert in Oak Park, Illinois, seeks a Portuguese phrase he once heard that a man might say when the object of his affection is out of their league or otherwise forever unattainable. This wistful phrase is Ela é muita areia pro meu caminhãozinho or "She's too much sand for my little truck." This sentiment is expressed throughout the world in various ways. A Spanish phrase suggests that the speaker doesn't even come up to someone else's heels -- ni a los talones -- and in French it's loin de lui arriver à la cheville. In German, it's nicht das Wasser reichen können, literally "can't reach the water," that is, not good enough to carry water for someone. In Polish, a couple of expressions that also convey the idea of someone being out of another's league translate as "The sausage is not for the dog" and the "The soul wants to get into heaven."

Gail in San Diego, California, wonders what's happening to past tense of verbs. She's observed more uses of I could have went instead of I could have gone, and something had sunken instead of sank, and I was sat rather than I was seated, and I was drugged when she would expect to hear I was dragged.

If someone ever asks you how you are, you’re feeling on top of the world, you can say Alles im Butter. It's German for "Everything's great" -- literally, "All is in butter."

In anatomical nomenclature, a bursa is a fluid-filled sac that helps cushion a joint. Bursa is the Latin word for "purse," the source of English purse itself, as well as the bursar who controls the purse strings in a college, plus disburse meaning "to release funds," and reimburse, "to pay back." In France, the related term Bourse was applied to the French stock exchange. Next to your knee is a bursa called the pes anserinus, which means "goose foot" in Latin, a reference to the way tendons from three different leg muscles attach to the shin bone there, then spread out in three directions like a webbed goose's foot. Pes in Latin means "foot," and its genitive form pedis is the source of such English words as pedestrian and pedal. Anser in Latin means "goose," and anserinus means "gooselike," from which we get the English adjective anserine, which describes something "silly or stupid as a goose." In German, Gänsefüßchen, "little goose feet," is a slang term for "quotation marks." Another English word inspired by a bird's foot is pedigree, from French pied de grue, or "foot of the crane," recalling the shape of the forked lines in a genealogical chart.

A university professor in Baltimore, Maryland, catches himself pronouncing the very same word in different ways depending on the context in which he's speaking. For him, it occurs with the word innovative, which U.S. and U.K. speakers pronounce differently. It's not uncommon to have inconsistencies in one's own pronunciation, especially if you're in a collaborative work environment where you may be influenced by the way others pronounce a word, or by particular phrases that keep popping up again and again.

In response to our conversation about using the term bedroom suite to denote a collection of furniture, Judith in Glen Rose, Texas, shares a hilarious story about when her Pennsylvania-born beau misunderstood what she meant when she told him she bought a $600  bedroom suit.

Charlie in Lexington, Kentucky, says his wife, who's from the eastern part of the state, uses a peculiar phrase to indicate that something's not her responsibility: Not my circus, not my monkeys. This dismissive saying is at least 30 years old, and is a calque, or exact translation, of a Polish phrase that Nie mój cyrk, nie moje małpy. English speakers elaborated on the expression, with several other versions such as Not my circus, not my monkeys, but the clowns definitely know me. Other versions: Not my money, not my business and Not my pig, not my farm.

A wonderful phrase from the Dictionary of Southern Appalachian English (Bookshop|Amazon), edited by Michael Montgomery and Jennifer Heinmiller, is in all my put-togethers, meaning "in all my accumulated experience."

This episode is hosted by Grant Barrett and Martha Barnette.

Climate protection is on the agenda at talks in Bonn. But back home, who's really taking action? We visit a budding environmental movement in Poland's coal heartland and find out how an oil pipeline has pitched environmentalists against the Canadian president. Plus, solar power in Kenya and a cool solution to LA's urban heat problem.



Katowice: A coal town that wants to go green


The upcoming COP24 climate summit will be held in Katowice, deep in Poland's industrial and coal mining heartland. Its air quality is among the worst in Europe. But the town is trying to clean up its act. And if Katowice can go green, perhaps anywhere can.

Canadian President Justin Trudeau has been vocal about his commitment to climate protection. But now, he's coming to blows with environmentalists and the provincial government of British Columbia over a massive oil pipeline

Can reflective roads help LA keep its cool?

Los Angeles has the greatest density of cars in the US — and a massive network of roads. In summer the asphalt absorbs sunlight and heats up, warming the air above it, an effect that will be exacerbated by climate change. But cool paving could change all that.

A Tale of Two Deltas

Screen_shot_2021-07-29_at_9 That blood-red full moon of July looked for sure to be on fire, but only because we saw it through smoke that had drifted thousands of miles east across North America. We’re sorting through glimpses of an apocalypse this hour, reaching for the eerie, uncanny feel of this climate summer of ’21: oceanic flooding in German cities, and now inland China, too. Our listening post is New Orleans, favorite American river town and all-important port that’s dissolving as we speak, same time it’s caught in the jaws of a rebounding pandemic. Louisiana this summer has the highest per capita increase in COVID cases and the third lowest vaccine rate in the country.  It’s embattled but not quite hopeless, knowing it’s alive because it’s scared half to death.

The city of New Orleans, Louisiana, could seem to “get” climate change better than Boston, say, or New York, or Los Angeles. The New Orleans question is not whether global warming is real, or coming soon. In New Orleans the tipping point is history, and not to be undone. The question is how to cope with the next climate, and the answers can be imaginative and bold. That is the drift of Nathaniel Rich’s curious book, titled Second Nature: Scenes from a World Remade, about a variety of people already living in the next place. Some—like the celebrated historian John Barry—have found new identities battling to make the next climate more democratic than the last one. Nathaniel Rich comes first with a keynote thought: that he was moving forward in the climate story when he planted his young family in old New Orleans.
