    Podcast Summary

    • The impact of advancing weather prediction technology on our lives.Accurate weather forecasting provided by companies like tomorrow.io will enable us to make informed decisions and stay safe, particularly in high-risk industries and as climate change worsens.

      Weather prediction technology is advancing rapidly, and this will have a significant impact on our lives. With the help of companies like tomorrow.io, we will soon be able to predict weather events with incredible accuracy, allowing us to make informed decisions days or even weeks in advance. This technology will not only help us alter our plans and stay safe during volatile weather, but it will also save lives. The importance of weather prediction is evident, especially in high-risk industries like aviation, where pilots like Shimon Elkabetz have experienced the devastating consequences of weather-related accidents. As climate change intensifies, the need for accurate weather forecasting becomes even more critical.

    • Addressing Climate Change Risks with Innovative Weather ForecastsOrganizations need accurate and timely weather data to effectively manage climate change risks and make informed decisions for optimizing operational efficiency. Tomorrow.io offers super accurate micro-local weather forecasts for this purpose.

      Climate change is causing weather to become a much bigger problem, especially outside of the US and the western world. The existing technology in place is not equipped to provide rapid weather data, which poses a challenge in managing the risks associated with climate change. Even with successful decarbonization programs, the climate has already changed and records have been broken. To address this, organizations need to put systems in place to manage the risk, similar to managing cybersecurity risks. For example, rerouting supply chains or making accurate forecasts to enable effective decision-making. The innovation offered by tomorrow.io is super accurate, micro-local weather forecasts to the minute or second. This allows organizations to optimize operational efficiency and make timely decisions based on accurate weather intelligence.

    • Taking Weather Forecasting to the Next LevelTomorrow.io understands the limitations of relying solely on government agencies for weather forecasts and has developed innovative solutions by leveraging proprietary technology and gathering weather information through internet-connected devices and sensors.

      Tomorrow.io, a weather forecasting company, discovered that relying solely on government agencies for accurate weather forecasts was not sufficient. They realized the importance of taking matters into their own hands to innovate faster and develop better solutions. Drawing on their military background, they understood the value of proprietary technology and the benefits it provides for both public safety and business challenges. Recognizing the need to "fall in love with a problem and not with a specific solution," they focused on finding effective ways to improve weather observations. By tapping into the "weather of things," such as internet-connected devices and sensors, they can gather valuable weather information and offer more precise predictions.

    • Enhancing Forecast Accuracy through Improved Sensor CoverageImproved radar coverage is crucial for better weather forecasting, as it helps in understanding and predicting tropical storms and hurricanes, leading to more accurate forecasts and informed decision-making for emergency response purposes.

      Reliable insights and accurate forecasts are essential for helping customers make better decisions. However, improving forecast accuracy is limited by the lack of sensor coverage, particularly in terms of weather radar. With over 5 billion people living outside of radar coverage, important weather phenomena like tropical storms and hurricanes are not fully understood, leading to significant forecast uncertainties. This lack of coverage creates issues in weather forecasting and climate resiliency efforts. While current forecasting methods may provide approximate predictions, having better monitoring of evolving storms through radar technology would greatly enhance forecast accuracy. Even a small improvement in accuracy can have a significant impact on decision-making, especially when it comes to evacuations and disaster response.

    • Space-based radars revolutionize weather monitoringOvercoming skepticism and challenges, Elkabetz's company launched their own constellation of satellites to provide real-time global weather data, improving predictions and raising over $250 million for their mission.

      Traditional methods of monitoring weather through ground-based radars have limitations in covering the entire globe and can be costly. Shimon Elkabetz and his team at a software company recognized the need for a more comprehensive solution and turned to space-based radars. However, they faced initial skepticism and challenges in finding partners who could meet their specifications. Existing satellites in low Earth orbit did not possess the necessary sensors to accurately describe the atmosphere. Thus, Elkabetz's company decided to launch their own constellation of satellites equipped with radar sensors and microwave sound technology. This innovative approach aims to provide real-time global weather data and improve short-term predictions, with a revisit rate of less than an hour. While the endeavor is expensive, the company has raised over $250 million to support their mission.

    • Overcoming Challenges and Advancing Weather Forecasting TechnologyDespite facing macro challenges, the company's focus on government and logistics partnerships, along with their advanced technology, positions them to have a significant global impact in improving weather forecasting.

      The company faced numerous macro challenges, including the pandemic, market crash, and inflation. Despite these obstacles, funding was not a major issue for them due to their technology maturity and timeline. The decision to cancel their IPO was seen as the right call, considering the market conditions and the potential risks. Moving forward, the company focuses on working with government and large logistics companies, providing real-time weather data and improved forecasting accuracy. This will have a significant impact globally, especially in regions like Mexico, Africa, India, and parts of Asia where real-time weather information is limited. While their consumer app is not widely popular, it offers benefits for those who use it, providing more accurate weather forecasts compared to government-based predictions. Overall, their aim is to be the leading company in privatizing and advancing weather forecasting technology.

    • Revolutionizing Weather Data for AllTomorrow.io is revolutionizing weather data by improving government data in underserved areas and developing countries, aiming to make accurate weather information accessible globally in the next three to four years.

      Tomorrow.io aims to improve and enhance government data regarding weather patterns, particularly in underserved areas and developing countries. They believe that relying on existing radars provided by the government is insufficient in addressing climate-related challenges, especially with extreme weather events becoming more frequent. Tomorrow.io is focused on serving the underserved and making accurate weather information accessible globally in the next three to four years. They are building their own satellites, designing the payload and mission, but also collaborating with vendors for satellite construction. The first satellite launch is scheduled for Q1 2023, and tomorrow.io is working diligently to ensure data availability and cooperation with other organizations, such as NOAA, to maximize its utilization.

    • Prioritizing and Investing in Climate Technology: Challenges and OpportunitiesSustainable climate technology requires investment and support despite challenges, as it is crucial for addressing climate change and adapting to its impacts.

      The world needs to prioritize climate technology and invest in climate-related solutions. This includes both climate mitigation, to prevent further acceleration of climate change, and climate adaptation, to adjust to the already changing climate. However, raising funds for businesses focusing on climate forecasting and solutions has proven to be challenging, as investors may prioritize short-term returns and traditional templates. Despite the difficulties, the market for such technology exists, especially considering the increasing realization of climate threats after experiencing events like the COVID-19 pandemic. Developing climate technology requires deep research and development, making it expensive and time-consuming. While some data may be made available for free, the business also needs to generate returns to sustain its operations.

    • Urgent action needed to address climate change impacts and prioritize climate adaptation through innovative solutions.Climate change requires immediate attention and innovative solutions like Shimon Elkabetz's app, empowering farmers in Africa to improve their livelihoods and mitigate climate change repercussions.

      The impact of climate change is already being felt, and we need to address it urgently. Even if we succeed in decarbonization, the effects will still be felt for years to come. Therefore, we must focus on climate adaptation and finding solutions that can generate immediate impact. By using modern technology and software, such as the app developed by Shimon Elkabetz, we can provide farmers in regions like Africa with valuable information and insights on things like when to harvest and irrigate, improving their livelihoods and mitigating the repercussions of climate change. It's essential to take action today to address the various problems caused by the changing weather patterns, including food crises and natural disasters.

    ECKO UNLTD and COMPLEX: Marc Ecko

    ECKO UNLTD and COMPLEX: Marc Ecko

    Growing up in the ‘80s in New Jersey, Marc Ecko loved hip hop, graffiti art, and painting t-shirts for friends. His passion soon bloomed into a full-on business: ECKO UNLTD, a streetwear brand known for its iconic rhino logo. By the 1990’s, the brand had become a cultural force, but not without its share of bad deals, daunting debt, and a close brush with bankruptcy. 

    Eager to keep innovating, Marc launched COMPLEX, a media company hyper-focused on “convergence” culture: hip hop, fashion, sports and pop culture. Within a decade, COMPLEX had weathered the financial crisis, and emerged profitable. After being bought–and sold–by Buzzfeed, it was purchased by a video shopping company for over $100 million, and ECKO UNLTD just celebrated its 30th anniversary.

    Therabody: Jason Wersland

    Therabody: Jason Wersland

    The Theragun was born out of a late-night experiment with a Makita jigsaw, by a man searching desperately for pain relief in his arm. Jason Wersland was studying to become a chiropractor when he got injured in a motorcycle accident. While casting about for solutions, he discovered that the percussive massage from his jury-rigged power tool helped ease his pain and increase range of motion.


    Jason soon discovered the device worked on his patients, so he MacGyvered hundreds more jigsaws, initially using fence posts and cat toys as add-ons.  Over time, with endorsements from top athletes and celebrities, Jason grew his business into Therabody, a wellness brand with revenue in the hundred of millions of dollars.

    439. Microplastics, Global Greening, & the Dangers of Radical Alarmism | Dr. Patrick Moore

    439. Microplastics, Global Greening, & the Dangers of Radical Alarmism | Dr. Patrick Moore

    Dr. Jordan B. Peterson sits down with industry consultant, science activist, and past president of Greenpeace Canada (1971 to 1986), Dr. Patrick Moore. They discuss his time in Greenpeace, the historic timeline of global ice ages and climate change, the clear lies being peddled to promote alarmism, and how the woke left manipulates science (and scientists) to promote a falsely perceived and politically incentivized future catastrophe.

     

    Dr. Patrick Moore has been a leader in the international environmental field for more than 45 years. He is a co-founder of Greenpeace and served for nine years as President of Greenpeace Canada and seven years as a Director of Greenpeace International. As the leader of many campaigns Dr. Moore was a driving force shaping policy and direction for 15 years while Greenpeace became the world's largest environmental activist organization.

     

    In recent years, Dr. Moore has been focused on the promotion of sustainability and consensus building among competing concerns. He was a member of the British Columbia government-appointed Round Table on the Environment and Economy from 1990 - 1994. In 1990, Dr. Moore founded and chaired the BC Carbon Project, a group that worked to develop a common understanding of climate change.

     

    In 2021 Dr. Moore published "Fake Invisible Catastrophes and Threats of Doom" exposing the fake news and fake science around 11 claims of disaster including climate change, coral reefs, polar bears, plastic, nuclear energy, and more.

    Bridging the Gap Between Finance and Climate Change

    Bridging the Gap Between Finance and Climate Change

    In recent years, news headlines are frequently filled with announcements of financial institutions, funds, and corporations making hefty pledges to transform their portfolios to ensure that they stay in line with net-zero targets. Is this new wave of support for the energy transition motivated by making a quick buck or has there really been a change of opinion on the opportunities in which going net-zero really has to offer? How is the changing climate affecting investments? How are investors driving the transition? These are some of the key questions we look to answer in this episode. 

    The Energy Gang is delighted to be joined by two professionals who have spent the majority of their careers bridging the gap between finance and climate change. Our first guest, Shanu Mathew is the VP of Sustainable Investing and Net-Zero Research at Lazard Asset Management, one of the world's leading investment companies. Returning for another episode is Amy Myers Jaffe, the Managing Director of the Climate Policy Lab at the Fletcher School at Tufts University. 

    Ed Crooks and the rest of the gang discuss the importance of investors' positions in helping speed up the energy transition and how their work compares to recent government actions. Are organizations like the Task Force on Climate-Related Disclosures (TCFD) making up for the lack of political progress? Moving our focus, What are consumer-facing companies doing to address climate risk and sustainability? Are companies like Unilever an industry leader in sustainability reporting positive impacts? Lastly, the gang takes a look at the story of Indonesia moving its capital through a financial risk lens. How does climate change affect sovereign risk and municipal bonds? What is the answer in terms of financing climate adaptation and what is the government's role in this situation?

    The Energy Gang is brought to you by EPC Power.

    Climate Change Is Threatening The U.S. West's Water Supply

    Climate Change Is Threatening The U.S. West's Water Supply
    The past year has been the driest or second driest in most Southwestern U.S. states since record-keeping began in 1895. Climate Correspondent Lauren Sommer reports that farms and cities have begun imposing water restrictions, but the water supply will shrink no matter what the weather brings. The supply spans tens of millions of people and the farmland that produces most of the country's fruits and vegetables. As a result, the people who manage the West's complex water systems are realizing that with climate change, they can no longer rely on the past to predict the future.
