We are joined today by retired Marine Colonel Anthony (Tony) Wood. In 1975, as a captain, Col. Wood was one of two military officers (the other a Green Beret captain) tasked with planning and executing the evacuation of Saigon as North Vietnamese forces shelled the city and closed in. They not only had to identify the thousands of allies (and Americans) in the region, but also identify potential landing/extraction zones, as well as develop a transportation plan to the sites, meanwhile keeping their extraction plans hidden from the ambassador/state department due to political pressures. Col. Wood and his team successfully extracted over 7,000 people in the largest helicopter evacuation in history without firing a single shot. This is a harrowing story and one of courage, bravery, desperation, creativity at the highest level, and decisiveness. We discuss the context of Vietnam in 1975, and the disagreement/disconnect between the military (posted offshore and not permitted on Vietnamese ground) and the state department/embassy. We continue to learn from these first-hand accounts of what it was like on the ground in Vietnam, especially during a chaotic, and highly politicized time. As we know, those on the ground doing the job oftentimes tell a different story than what the news delivers. We hope you enjoy.

"I have gone, love, now let me go." We are all changeable creatures. 50 billion of our cells die every day, physically we are not the same today as we were yesterday. And that irrefutable truth seeps into the very core of our beings. Every day, we change as persons too - imperceptibly, almost surreptitiously: the people we meet, the experiences we stumble into, what our senses see, what scares our heart. If our beings revel in the scars and bleed in the unexpected, we are already what we were not. And we start looking at everything and everyone with new eyes. And often the direction of our life changes, the people we thought were inseparable to the importance of our lives, now look like milestones - without the love dimming, without the care diminishing, we know we have different directions to take. And we drift. We do not break off relationships only out of bitterness or regret. Sometimes we also recognise that we have moved on, and moved in different directions. And we know it's time to part, and we know the hurt we will leave behind. We know explanations might sound lame, and to say “I love you” whilst leaving, is contrarian and often unexplainable. But our heart knows the truth - it often says that there are bigger issues than love, when our very existence is at stake, when the space we need to find for ourselves needs to be unencumbered, when what we stand for or seek, needs solitude because we've already crowded it with personalities and our own personas which require either recognition or elimination. We do not leave anybody - we are only in search of a new self. And to find a new nook which says -“Stay”.

All Local Morning Update
Year after year, wildfires have swept through Northern California's wine and dairy country, threatening the region's famed agricultural businesses. . Evacuation orders have become a way of life in places like Sonoma County, and so too have exemptions to those orders. Officials in the county created a special program allowing agricultural employers to bring farmworkers into areas that are under evacuation and keep them working, even as wildfires rage. It's generally known as the ag pass program. Reporter Teresa Cotsirilos investigates whether the policy puts low-wage farmworkers at risk from smoke and flames. This story is a partnership with the nonprofit newsroom the Food & Environment Reporting Network and the podcast and radio show World Affairs. Then KQED's Danielle Venton introduces us to Bill Tripp, a member of the Karuk Tribe. Tripp grew up along the Klamath River, where his great-grandmother taught him how controlled burns could make the land more productive and protect villages from dangerous fires. But in the 1800s, authorities outlawed traditional burning practices. Today, the impact of that policy is clear: The land is overgrown, and there has been a major fire in the region every year for the past decade, including one that destroyed half the homes in the Karuk's largest town, Happy Camp, and killed two people. Tripp has spent 30 years trying to restore “good fire” to the region but has faced resistance from the U.S. Forest Service and others. Twelve years ago, the Forest Service officially changed its policy to expand the use of prescribed burns, one of the most effective tools to mitigate massive, deadly wildfires. But Reveal's Elizabeth Shogren reports that even though the agency committed to doing controlled burns, it hasn't actually increased how much fire it's using to fight fire. The Forest Service also has been slow to embrace another kind of good fire that experts say the West desperately needs: managed wildfires, in which fires are allowed to burn in a controlled manner to reduce overgrowth. To protect the future of the land and people – especially with climate change making forests drier and hotter – the Forest Service needs to embrace the idea of good fire. This is a rebroadcast of an episode that originally aired in September 2021.

You have seen these lovely evacuation simulations, the ones with a bunch of agents moving together or clumping at an exit. Ones that we use to determine ASET condition, and which are present in almost every large PBD project...Maybe even you are running such simulations. So, with that experience in mind - have you ever wondered if what you see makes sense. We all feel that humans in groups behave differently than a bunch of units in a crowd. But to what extent that 'different' could be important? That is the question with which I have approached dr Anne Templeton from the University of Edinburgh. Anne is a renowned scientist in the field of crowd psychology. She was kind enough to tell me the difference between psychological and physical crowds and why sending students to a pub helped here quantify that. Tap into this episode if you would like to learn the new stuff we are finding about human behaviour, and how that may change our future modelling and evacuation planning.And make sure to check out Anne's webpage which is absolutely full of resources!https://www.identitiesandcollectivebehaviour.com/

On this episode, hosts Peter Ravella and Tyler Buckingham talk with Jim Blackburn, founder and leader of the Texas Coastal Exchange (TCX) and BCarbon, two organizations to protect coastal wetlands and other natural areas to generate and certify carbon offset credits. In April, TCX announced a plan to construct 1,000-miles of living shoreline projects on the Texas coast funded ultimately through the sale of carbon offset credits. According to TXC, a nine-mile living shoreline project might cost $4.5 million to construct. However, by protecting coastal wetlands which sequester carbon, that project could generate $19 million from the sale of carbon credits. BCarbon -- an organization that certifies empirically measured increases in natural carbon stocks for carbon credit trading -- estimates that credits would be valued at $20 per ton. Could coastal wetlands protection projects and other coastal and ocean green infrastructure projects really be self-funding through the sale of carbon offset credits? Blackburn thinks so and he makes a compelling case. A great interview with one of the most innovative thinkers on the American shoreline. Jim Blackburn is a professor in the practice of environmental law in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at Rice University, teaching courses in sustainable development and environmental law. He is an environmental planner and practiced environmental law with the Blackburn & Carter law firm in Houston. At Rice, he serves as the co-director of the Severe Storm Prediction, Education and Evacuation from Disaster (SSPEED) Center, a faculty scholar at the Baker Institute, and director of the undergraduate minor in energy and water sustainability. At the SSPEED Center, Mr. Blackburn has been responsible for the development of landscape-scale green-space solutions for surge damage mitigation, including the Lone Star Coastal National Recreation Area, a web-based ecological services exchange and structural alternatives. He is the author of The Book of Texas Bays (Texas A&M University Press, 2004), which focuses on the environmental health of bays in Texas and efforts undertaken to protect them.

We're opening up the Vault again for the second of four times in this series! This episode focuses on Vault release #4 that took place in the intimate Mt. Baker Theatre up in Bellingham, Washington. Coming two days before the record came out, this show that amassed no more than 1,500 fans was meant as a preview for the Binaural record with seven songs being played live for the first time. We'll gets to talk about all of the song debuts - Of The Girl, Breakerfall, Light Years, God's Dice, Evacuation, Insignificance and even a few from the record that had already been played in some capacity on television or a Bridge School show. How did these songs sound on first listen? Did we get a sense for what they'd become right away, or did they need time to figure out the right comfort zone for playing these songs? All that, and a story about how Binaural may have been considered a dirty word to some fans back in the early 2000s, specifically someone who may host a Pearl Jam podcast you're currently listening to!

Sara welcomes former U.S. Army special operator Cory Mills, who is now running for Congress in Florida. Mills was in Afghanistan helping to move U.S. allies out of the country during the chaotic withdrawal in August 2021 and shares multiple bombshells with Sara.First, Mills says the terrorist attack that killed 13 U.S. servicemembers also killed many American civilians but the Biden administration will not admit it. He also says a huge percentage of the Afghani people airlifted out of Kabul never lifted a finger to help the U.S. during the war while thousands of allies were abandoned to the Taliban.Mills also explains the disturbing significance of the China-Russia-Iran alliance and Sara asks why the world was able to quickly condemn Russia's actions but can't say a word about China imprisoning and torturing religious and ethnic minorities.Please visit our great sponsors:The Association of Mature American Citizenshttps://amac.us/carterThe benefits of membership are great, but the cause is even greater.Healthycellhttps://healthycell.com/saraUse promo code CARTER for 20% your first order.
