https://killexams.com/exam_list/EMCKillexams : KSDE shirks responsibility to school districts, promotes KASB membership
The Kansas Department of Education purports to be a “dedicated service agency” that provides leadership, resources, and support. But like its claim to “prepare all students for global success,” KSDE’s actions indicate otherwise. That’s only part of this story, however. The Department of Education is also involved in a scheme to divert classroom dollars to support lobbying efforts by the Kansas Association of School Boards and looks the other way when school districts ignore state laws designed to Boost academic preparation.
KSDE oversees a system that is ranked #32 in educational racial equality, and now Commissioner Randy Watson says neither KSDE nor the State Board of Education provides “any type of local board of education policy services.” Watson indicates school boards should effectively divert money (about $5 million across the state) from classroom spending to buy policy services from the Kansas Association of School Boards.
The Sentinel obtained Watson’s letter in an Open Records request to Louisburg Superintendent Brian Biermann, seeking evidence of what appears to be a deceptive effort to renew the district’s KASB membership five months early. Biermann also involved the district’s insurance broker and financial auditor in his scheme.
The April board meeting minutes say, “Several board members had concerns about the membership and wanted to see if there was an alternative resource.” Bierman wanted to renew membership well in advance of the December deadline, but the board voted to table the discussion until the May meeting. The May and June minutes indicate the Board continued to request additional information to justify early renewal.
At the July meeting, Biermann first told board members that not renewing KASB membership could cause non-renewal of the district’s liability insurance. He shared Watson’s letter indicating that the Department of Education doesn’t provide policy guidance and that the district’s liability insurance coverage could be in jeopardy if it doesn’t get the guidance that comes with KASB membership. He said the insurance underwriters told Elliott Group, the district’s insurance agency, that “either your rates are gonna go up drastically, or they’re gonna consider us uninsurable.”
Biermann provided no communication from the underwriters at EMC Insurance as part of the KORA request, but an email from Elliott did not paint the dire situation Biermann presented. Elliott representative Justin Zwaschka writes, “There is no hard requirement for (districts) to stay a KASB member as an EMC insured. However, a portion of the premium is always based on the unknown. If we add more unknowns into the equation (Which would be introduced by terminating their membership), there would be a high likelihood this would have to be reflected in their premium.”
So, an increase could arise, but nothing indicating it would be ‘drastic’ and no mention of the district being uninsurable.
The Sentinel also requested a copy of the district’s application for coverage from EMC to determine whether any questions were asked about KASB membership or school policy development. Biermann responded via email, “The district did not do an application for insurance coverage. Elliott submits an application to EMC on an annual basis. You will have to request this application from Elliott Insurance.”
The Sentinel attempted to obtain the application allegedly submitted by Elliott, but officials there did not respond to multiple requests. Louisburg school board member Jo Erin Stuteville, who is the branch manager for Elliott’s Spring Hill office, was one of the officials who did not respond to The Sentinel.
Biermann said EMC Insurance is the only company that sells coverage for small districts. He said KASB promotes a self-insurance program but it is only open to KASB members, so in his opinion, the district has no choice but to be a KASB member.
But that’s not true. According to Jeremy Woydziak with KASB, membership is not required.
Adverse audit opinion alleged if not a KASB member
Biermann also told the board that the district could get an adverse opinion in its financial audit if it doesn’t belong to KASB. He said the auditor, Sean Gordon, called him and said “pretty much the same thing” as conveyed by Elliott.
“And if we do not have the most current fiscal policies, we will not have a good audit, he will write the letters of concern in our audit report. Because as an auditor, he wants the districts he works with to have the latest, especially fiscal policies in place.”
The Sentinel spoke with Sean Gordon, however, and he did not paint the dire picture shared by Biermann. He said not keeping up with financial policies “could potentially” have an impact.
The system works for the preservation of the system, not for students
This episode is just the latest in a long series of efforts by state and local officials to preserve a system that protects the adults who work in it. The Kansas Association of School Boards is supposed to work for school board members, but it mostly works to shield entrenched administrators from school board oversight. School board members are told to support the superintendent and generally stay out of district operations when in fact, their job as elected board members is to hold management accountable for academically preparing students for college and career.
KASB and the Department of Education work hard to protect their institutional interests, but student achievement is low overall and getting worse. To wit, there were more high school students below grade level in Kansas than proficient before the pandemic, and it’s worse now.
And where was KASB’s alleged financial guidance when state auditors caught districts spending hundreds of millions of At-Risk funds in violation of state law?
This ‘system-first’ attitude will not change until parents demand and legislators institute healthy doses of choice, transparency, and accountability.

The U.S. Department of Justice has filed a lawsuit against Idaho, claiming that the state law banning almost all abortions violates federal law regulating public access to emergency services.
In an announcement Tuesday afternoon, the DOJ announced the complaint against Idaho Code § 18-622, which the department describes as a "near-total ban on abortion." The law will go into effect on Aug. 25.
The filing marks the first time the Biden administration has taken legal action against a state abortion restriction since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that made abortion a national right last month. It could also be a sign of litigation to come against states that have enacted similar laws.
The Justice Department contends that the Idaho law conflicts with the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act of 1986. The law focuses on "public access to emergency services regardless of ability to pay."
"Section 1867 of the Social Security Act imposes specific obligations on Medicare-participating hospitals that offer emergency services to provide a medical screening examination (MSE) when a request is made for examination or treatment for an emergency medical condition (EMC), including active labor, regardless of an individual's ability to pay," explains an EMTLA info page.
"Hospitals are then required to provide stabilizing treatment for patients with EMCs. If a hospital is unable to stabilize a patient within its capability, or if the patient requests, an appropriate transfer should be implemented."
In its complaint, the Justice Department argued that "medical care that a state may characterize as an 'abortion' is necessary emergency stabilizing care that hospitals are required to provide under EMTALA."
"Such circumstances may include, but are not limited to, ectopic pregnancy, severe preeclampsia, or a pregnancy complication threatening septic infection or hemorrhage," the filing reads.
Attorney General Merrick Garland said in a statement that the lawsuit is part of the DOJ's effort to "work tirelessly to protect and advance reproductive freedom."
"That is what we are doing, and that is what we will continue to do," stated Garland. "And we will closely scrutinize state abortion laws to ensure that they comply with federal law."
Idaho Code § 18-622 bans most abortions in the state, threatening a criminal punishment between two and five years of imprisonment for any person found to have performed a "criminal abortion."
The law provides exemptions for abortions performed in cases of rape and incest reported to proper authorities and to "prevent the death of the pregnant woman." The law also prohibits criminal prosecution of pregnant women seeking an abortion.
Although the law includes an exception for preventing "the death of the pregnant woman," the Justice Department argues that the law puts the liability on abortionists who risk jail time and losing their medical license if they can't prove that the abortion was necessary to save the life of the mother.
The department further argues that the law "provides no defense for an abortion necessary to protect the health of the pregnant patient."
On June 24, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 6-3 in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization that abortion is not a constitutional right.
Since then, several states have enacted policies that ban abortion under most circumstances. The Biden administration has sought efforts to help secure abortion access.
Last month, the DOJ launched a "Reproductive Rights Task Force" to monitor state and local laws restricting abortion, which Associate Attorney General Vanita Gupta chairs.
According to a Harvard Center for American Political Studies/Harris Poll report released in June, most respondents opposed the overturning of Roe, but only 10% wanted their state to allow abortions through all nine months of pregnancy.

Model of Gehry's plans for the Eisenhower Memorial.
It’s been pretty much downhill from there. In the intervening fifteen years, Stevens and Inouye’s noble idea has become a classic Washington boondoggle, an object lesson on how not to build a memorial in that city.
The enabling legislation for the Eisenhower Memorial mandated a bipartisan commission composed of four senators, four representatives, and four citizens to be appointed by the president of the United States. I have served as an appointee for just over a year.
The legislation does not limit the members’ terms, so, in theory, they serve until the memorial is finished or they resign. This is unfortunate, because, in this commission at least, new members would bring a much-needed infusion of fresh perspectives and thinking. Except for David Eisenhower, Ike’s grandson who in 2011 resigned over the memorial’s design (I’m his replacement), and Representative Mike Simpson of Idaho, the commissioners have zealously followed, with zero dissent, Rocco Siciliano, the man who serves as permanent chairman, and his loyal staff.
A Rodeo Drive resident who was a junior member in the Eisenhower administration, Siciliano claims he can channel Ike. In a letter written shortly before his death, Senator Inouye expressed concern that the Eisenhower Memorial Commission (EMC) was ignoring the Eisenhower family’s doubts about the design. Siciliano was having none of it: “I am one person,” he wrote, “who feels competent to say that he believes President Eisenhower would be most pleased as to what the present Commissioners have unanimously accepted.” Shades of Shirley MacLaine!
The EMC has a staff of nine full-time employees, several making six-figure salaries, ensconced in a K Street office suite. There’s also a senior advisor, a senior writer, and a crowd of consultants, including those for international affairs and communications, plus an assortment of advisory committees. Until its budget recently was cut in half by Congress, the staff was burning through $2 million of operating expenses a year.
In 2010, more than a decade after its establishment, the EMC unanimously approved and acclaimed a $140 million design by Frank Gehry, the winner of a competition supervised by the General Services Administration’s Design Excellence Program. The Program called for a twenty-first century design, signaling that many architects working in a traditional vernacular need not apply.
Because the GSA first solicited portfolios from architects for the memorial, the largest and most famous firms emerged at the top of the pile. The process disadvantaged small practices with talent but without high profiles. Of the forty-four proposals, only four made it to the short list.
And, of course, the most glittering of all was Frank Gehry’s, perhaps the world’s most famous architect.
Only after the shortlisted firms were chosen were they asked to submit a “design vision,” the most important element of the memorial. Hiring an architect before seeing his or her plan was rather like buying a pig in a poke. In fact, the design jury, composed of independent experts, said that all the designs were “mediocre” and that “none of the visions expressed the whole essence of Eisenhower.” The evaluation board, which included Siciliano and the EMC staff architect, ignored the jury’s sensible recommendation for another round of applications, and Gehry was awarded the commission in 2009. Critics have claimed that Siciliano stacked the deck for the architect. He has a long history and friendship with Gehry, dating back to the early 1980s when Siciliano was on the board of the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art at the time it awarded Gehry one of his first important commissions.
None of the EMC commissioners were chosen for their expertise on memorials, architecture, or aesthetics; they are either politicians or campaign donors. Even so, when they approved Gehry’s postmodern design, they must have realized that it was totally out of sync with the architecture of the National Mall. As Gehry has said, “There are sort of rules about architectural expression which have to fit into a certain channel. Screw that.” Eloquent indeed.
What they unanimously approved was truly dumbfounding: a four-acre site (the Washington Monument and the Jefferson and Lincoln Memorials could occupy the space with room to spare) to be populated with ten pillars, each eight-stories high (Gehry slyly calls them “columns” to link them to the Mall’s classically inspired architecture). Between six of the pillars was to hang a gigantic stainless steel mesh “tapestry” (Gehry wrongly claims that tapestries are a traditional part of memorials) depicting a landscape of leafless trees allegedly portraying Kansas. Four other columns supporting smaller “tapestries” were to be placed at right angles to the major “tapestry,” thus forming a semi-enclosed space. Gehry called this an urban temple or a plaza, and this concept was the very heart of his plan and sales pitch. The pillars and columns were to dwarf a small figure of Ike as a teenager and two truly pedestrian, waxwork–like bas-reliefs that depict scenes from his military and presidential careers. These are the elements of the plan’s feeble core.
There are many other flaws in Gehry’s design, but the most glaring is its failure to fulfill even the most basic function of a memorial. A memorial should be immediately understandable; it should elevate its subject, not diminish it; it should inspire awe and reverence, not create bewilderment; it should embody the character of its subject. Gehry’s self-important plan does just the opposite.
Ike, the son of a hard-working Kansas family of modest means, was a humble, self-effacing soldier and president imbued with a sense of duty, honor, and patriotism. None of this is reflected in Gehry’s pompous harum-scarum design that is really about glorifying one of history’s most gargantuan architectural egos and not about memorializing Ike.
What, it is fair to ask, will rising generations of Americans, who will have no memory of Ike, glean from Gehry’s plan? Will they be stirred and inspired by Ike’s deeds as soldier and president or impressed by his humble character? Will they come away feeling that here was greatness, as they do when they leave the Jefferson or Lincoln Memorials? Unlikely. It’s not surprising, therefore, that the EMC is spending over $2 million for a digital e-memorial, whatever that means, to explain Gehry’s design to visitors because that is something it can’t do for itself. Does it make sense for tourists to come to the site only to have their eyes immediately directed back to a digital device?
The failure to raise money for Gehry’s plan for the Corcoran presaged what has happened with the Eisenhower Memorial. The design can’t command public support. Over $1 million have been spent on a private fundraising consultant, but fewer than $500,000 have been raised; fundraising efforts have netted a loss of approximately $700,000.
A good part of this is because an avalanche of negative criticism in publications as diverse as The New Yorker (which said that the Eisenhower Memorial was a bipartisan issue: everyone hates it) and National Review, as well as reasoned opposition from many quarters, including the Eisenhower family, has made donors wary of contributing.
Because of the lack of private funds, the taxpayers have been footing the bill. A latest congressional report (see below), finds that, to date, the EMC has spent around $44 million of the nearly $65 million initially appropriated by Congress. Gehry’s firm has already collected over $16 million dollars and $13 million more have gone for administrative support and for managing the design process. Astonishingly, the EMC paid the Gehry team for 95 percent of the construction documents, even before the plan received the first federal approval, a process that usually involves many design changes over a considerable period of time.
Congressional criticism of the EMC has recently risen to a new level. In July 2014, the House Committee on Appropriations called for an “open, public, and transparent redesign process” and mandated the EMC “cease all expenditures relating to the current memorial design” until that process was in place. And a bill (H.R.5203), co-sponsored by Chairman Ken Calvert of the House Subcommittee on Appropriations for Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies, and Congressman Rob Bishop of the House Committee on Natural Resources, seeks to defund the Commission and its staff.
Recently, Bishop’s Committee on Natural Resources issued a well-documented report entitled “A Five-Star Folly” that eviscerates the EMC’s operations and practices. It says that “[the committee] has identified significant questions that undermine the viability of the current design and the Memorial Commission’s ability to see a memorial to completion.”
Moreover, a waiver from the Federal Commemorative Works Act, which would have allowed construction to begin before all the money for the memorial was secured, has been removed. Because of the poor record of private support, this means millions more of federal dollars will have to be in place before the first shovel of earth can be turned—a daunting prospect. In 2014, the EMC asked Congress for $51 million and received just $1 million for operating expenses to keep the lights on. Heedless of this heavy flak and completely tone deaf to mounting criticism, the EMC, driven by its staff and chairman, steadily plods on.
In April 2014, a full decade-and-a-half after it was established, the EMC finally presented the Gehry design for approval to the National Capital Planning Commission (NCPC), which is supposed to ensure that proposed structures in the District conform to established guidelines. Much to the EMC’s dismay, the Gehry plan was turned down for a number of reasons, but principally because some of the pillars supporting the “tapestries” blocked the view toward the Capitol.
There are two issues at play here: the NCPC’s spinelessness and Gehry’s frantic zeal to get his Eisenhower Memorial built in the nation’s capital. So desperate was Gehry that he sacrificed his elaborate plan for a temple or plaza, the design’s raison d’être, simply to meet the narrow technical guidelines of the NCPC. So much for artistic integrity.
Moreover, by approving the Gehry design merely because it allegedly satisfied its technical guidelines, the NCPC ignored the larger issue: the clash of Gehry’s Eisenhower Memorial plan with the National Mall. This bad precedent will encourage further actions of this sort where expedience trumps good architecture and good sense.
Energized, the EMC sped on to the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts (CFA), an agency charged with reviewing the design and aesthetic merits of projects to be built in Washington. The Gehry design had already received preliminary approval from the CFA, but not without harsh criticism from some of the commissioners, one even claiming that Gehry’s plan would fail as “a traditional first-semester architecture exercise.” Distressingly, Earl A. Powell III, the long-time director of the National Gallery and Chairman of the CFA, was Gehry’s cheerleader. With Powell’s continuing support, the revised Gehry design sailed though the CFA at its October meeting.
Now the EMC is doing a premature victory dance as they rush to get final approvals from the NCPC and CFA. They’ve even declared in a latest press release that they intend to break ground in 2015, making one wonder if the EMC and its aggressive staff have lost touch with reality.
To begin construction, the EMC needs north of $80 million in additional funds, but Gehry is notorious for his massive cost overruns, so the final price tag will probably be much higher. As John Silber wrote in Architecture of the Absurd, “When Gehry is hired, the partnership of client and architect is virtual except when it comes to paying the bill.” These overruns have to be paid by Gehry’s clients, but in the case of the Eisenhower Memorial, the EMC commissioners need not open their wallets because the American taxpayers will have to foot that bill.
Given the massive public opposition to the memorial, including that of the Eisenhower family, and the lack of appropriations from Congress, it is far-fetched to believe that Gehry’s plan will ever be fully funded. Yet, as long as the EMC continues to get a modicum of operating expenses and remains under Gehry’s thrall, it will survive, proving President Reagan’s maxim that a “government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life.” If the EMC is not stopped, it will spend down its remaining money, about $25 million, chasing Gehry’s bill of goods. And, when it’s spent its last cent, there will be no Eisenhower Memorial or the resolve to start again.
With sustained efforts by the public and Congress, the EMC can be stopped, and something good can be built with the money the EMC still has in the bank. Ike’s son, General John Eisenhower, who knew his father a little bit better than Siciliano did, put it well when he wrote that instead of Gehry’s plan, “taxpayers and donors alike will be better served with an Eisenhower Square that is a green, open space with a simple statue.”
If this happens, a great American will be fittingly honored and the National Mall will escape disfigurement by Frank Gehry.

Sat, 06 Aug 2022 14:53:00 -0500en-UStext/htmlhttps://www.geekwire.com/events/Killexams : The audacious PR plot that seeded doubt about climate change
Thirty years ago, a bold plan was cooked up to spread doubt and persuade the public that climate change was not a problem. The little-known meeting - between some of America's biggest industrial players and a PR genius - forged a devastatingly successful strategy that endured for years, and the consequences of which are all around us.
On an early autumn day in 1992, E Bruce Harrison, a man widely acknowledged as the father of environmental PR, stood up in a room full of business leaders and delivered a pitch like no other.
At stake was a contract worth half a million dollars a year - about £850,000 in today's money. The prospective client, the Global Climate Coalition (GCC) - which represented the oil, coal, auto, utilities, steel, and rail industries - was looking for a communications partner to change the narrative on climate change.
Don Rheem and Terry Yosie, two of Harrison's team present that day, are sharing their stories for the first time.
"Everybody wanted to get the Global Climate Coalition account," says Rheem, "and there I was, smack in the middle of it."
The GCC had been conceived only three years earlier, as a forum for members to exchange information and lobby policy makers against action to limit fossil fuel emissions.
Though scientists were making rapid progress in understanding climate change, and it was growing in salience as a political issue, in its first years the Coalition saw little cause for alarm. President George HW Bush was a former oilman, and as a senior lobbyist told the BBC in 1990, his message on climate was the GCC's message.
There would be no mandatory fossil fuel reductions.
But all that changed in 1992. In June, the international community created a framework for climate action, and November's presidential election brought committed environmentalist Al Gore into the White House as vice-president. It was clear the new administration would try to regulate fossil fuels.
The Coalition recognised that it needed strategic communications help and put out a bid for a public relations contractor.
Though few outside the PR industry might have heard of E Bruce Harrison or the eponymous company he had run since 1973, he had a string of campaigns for some of the US's biggest polluters under his belt.
He had worked for the chemical industry discrediting research on the toxicity of pesticides; for the tobacco industry, and had recently run a campaign against tougher emissions standards for the big car makers. Harrison had built a firm that was considered one of the very best.
Media historian Melissa Aronczyk, who interviewed Harrison before he died in 2021, says he was a strategic linchpin for his clients, ensuring everyone was on the same page.
"He was a master at what he did," she says.
Drawing on thousands of newly discovered documents, this three-part film charts how the oil industry mounted a campaign to sow doubt about the science of climate change, the consequences of which we are living through today.
Before the pitch, Harrison had assembled a team of both seasoned PR professionals and almost total novices. Among them was Don Rheem, who had no industry credentials. He had studied ecology before becoming an environmental journalist. A chance meeting with Harrison, who must have seen the strategic value of adding Rheem's environmental and media connections to the team, led to a job offer on the GCC pitch.
"I thought, 'Wow, this is an opportunity to get a front row seat at probably one of the most pressing science policy and public policy issues that we were facing.'
"It just felt enormously important," Rheem says.
Terry Yosie - who had recently been recruited from the American Petroleum Institute, becoming a senior vice-president at the firm - remembers that Harrison began the pitch by reminding his audience that he was instrumental in fighting the auto reforms. He had done so, in part, by reframing the issue.
The same tactics would now help beat climate regulation. They would persuade people that the scientific facts weren't settled, and that alongside the environment, policy makers needed to consider how action on climate change would - in the GCC's view - negatively affect American jobs, trade and prices.
The strategy would be implemented through an extensive media campaign, everything from placing quotes and pitching opinion pieces (so-called op-eds), to direct contacts with journalists.
"A lot of reporters were assigned to write stories," Rheem says, "and they were struggling with the complexity of the issue. So I would write backgrounders so reporters could read them and get up to speed."
Uncertainty ran through the full gamut of the GCC's publications, a creative array of letters, glossy brochures, and monthly newsletters.
Rheem and the team were prolific - within a year, Harrison's firm claimed to have secured more than 500 specific mentions in the media.
In August 1993, Harrison took stock of progress in another meeting with the GCC.
"The rising awareness of the scientific uncertainty has caused some in Congress to pause on advocating new initiatives," declared an updated internal strategy pitch, shared with the BBC by Terry Yosie.
"Activists sounding the alarm over 'global warming' have publicly conceded that they lost ground in the communications arena over the past year."
Now, Harrison counselled, they needed to expand the external voices making their case.
"Scientists, economists, academics and other noted experts carry greater credibility with the media and general public than industry representatives."
While most climate scientists agreed that human-caused climate change was a real issue that would require action, a small group argued there was no cause for alarm. The plan was to pay these sceptics to give speeches or write op-eds - about $1,500 (£1,250) per article - and to arrange media tours so they could appear on local TV and radio stations.
"My role was to identify the voices that were not in the mainstream and to give those voices a stage," Rheem says. "There was a lot we didn't know at the time. And part of my role was to highlight what we didn't know."
He says the media was hungry for these perspectives.
"Journalists were actually actively looking for the contrarians. It was really feeding an appetite that was already there."
If you say something enough times, people will begin to believe it
Many of these sceptics or deniers have rejected the idea that funding from the GCC and other industry groups had any impact on their views. But the scientists and environmentalists tasked with repudiating them - arguing the reality of climate change - encountered a well-organised and effective campaign they found hard to match.
"The Global Climate Coalition is seeding doubt everywhere, fogging the air… And environmentalists really don't know what's hitting them," environmental campaigner John Passacantando remembers.
"What the geniuses of the PR firms who work for these big fossil fuel companies know is that truth has nothing to do with who wins the argument. If you say something enough times, people will begin to believe it."
In a document dating from around 1995, shared with the BBC by Melissa Aronczyk, Harrison wrote that the "GCC has successfully turned the tide on press coverage of global climate change science, effectively countering the eco-catastrophe message and asserting the lack of scientific consensus on global warming."
The groundwork had been laid for the industry's biggest campaign to date - opposing international efforts to negotiate emissions reductions at Kyoto, in Japan, in December 1997. By then, a consensus had emerged among scientists that human-caused warming was now detectable. But the US public was still showing signs of doubt. As many as 44% of respondents to a Gallup poll believed scientists were divided. Public antipathy made it harder for politicians to fight for action, and America never implemented the agreement reached in Kyoto. It was a major victory for the industry coalition.
"I think E Bruce Harrison was proud of the work he did. He knew how central he had been to moving the needle on how companies intervened in the conversation about global warming," says Aronczyk.
I think it's the moral equivalent of a war crime
The same year as the Kyoto negotiation, Harrison sold his firm. Rheem decided that public relations wasn't the right career, while Yosie had long since moved on to other environmental projects for the firm. Meanwhile, the GCC began to disintegrate, as some members grew uncomfortable with its hard line. But the tactics, the playbook, and the message of doubt were now embedded and would outlive their creators. Three decades on, the consequences are all around us.
"I think it's the moral equivalent of a war crime," says former US Vice-President Al Gore of the big oil companies' efforts to block action.
"I think it is, in many ways, the most serious crime of the post-World War Two era, anywhere in the world. The consequences of what they've done are just almost unimaginable."
"Would I do anything differently? It's a hard question to answer," reflects Don Rheem, who says he was "way down the totem pole" of the GCC's operation. "There's some sadness that not much has happened."
He maintains that climate science was too uncertain in the 1990s to warrant "drastic actions", and that developing countries - particularly China and Russia - have ultimately been responsible for the decades of climate inaction, rather than American industry.
"I think it's really easy to create a conspiracy theory about really pernicious intent of industry to completely halt any progress," Rheem says. "Personally, I didn't see that.
"I was very young. I was very curious... Knowing what I know today, would I have done some things differently then?

ORLANDO, Fla., July 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Over past issues of the Emerging Market Report we've been attentive to the fact that geopolitical events could be impactful for Laramide Resources Ltd. LAMLAMLMRXF which holds diversified uranium assets in the exploration stage that are strategically positioned in the United States and Australia.
We knew that the conflict in Ukraine was very likely to affect the spot price for Uranium, and more importantly, change the supply chain. Since Laramide's operations are located in the United States and Australia, two stable tier one jurisdictions.
We believe a major change may be imminent and it could be more important for American producers and exploration companies than imagined. Investors in U.S.-based Uranium exploration companies like Laramide – which has three prospective American Uranium mines – may be interested in monitoring the news to see how a new bill from the Biden administration could change the landscape for U.S.-based Uranium production.
O.K. let's break down some of the reporting.
First, Bloomberg is reporting that "The Biden administration is pushing lawmakers to support a $4.3 billion plan to buy enriched uranium directly from domestic producers to wean the U.S. off Russian imports of the nuclear-reactor fuel, according to a person familiar with the matter."
That's huge for U.S. uranium if it happens. And while we're not sure that Laramide will benefit directly from this $4.3 billion plan that Bloomberg is reporting, they would seem to be in a very good place with regard to the line "wean the U.S. of Russian imports" which sounds very much like a long term move, and not a temporary action.
It's a compelling perspective. And if this bill passes it could be a win/win for domestic uranium producers and exploration companies. For the record, the status of each of Laramide assets in the exploration stages varies so please visit the linked-to page to see where they are on the path to production.
