car been, how long would it be before the world improve? would we say anything? and more importantly, if the united states or russia or china or france signs all kinds of protocol and the rest of the world doesn't. what good is that? and the other question is, who is in charge of carbon taxi, carbon credit, carbon exchanges. carbon footprint, the money behind this, who makes the money? this is this wonderful theoretical feel good thing called climate change. but nobody's explained to me or anybody else for that matter, to my liking what you propose to do about it. and how will mankind be benefited and who makes the money? thanks for joining us here. a naughty international web back at the top of the ah,
this was a bargain that was may 2025 years ago under a clinton. as a matter of fact, they've brought china into the world trade organization, the w t o. this was a quid pro well that we're going to essentially give america a huge break on flat screen tv. but within 2045 years we're going to bankrupt the country and that's what's happening now. ah. both. oh wow. i made, this is a different world. the fisherman visited regularly this morning world familiar book
with chapters still to come. his traps, hopes, assessment, all like 20 fathoms deep and rocky bottom of the coast of maine. a good living to be made in the atlantic ocean. if anybody will go get there's a patch of water around the try a seal island in contention between canada and the united states. you know, where the government may suddenly become optimal for lobster. our population here is exploded. one of the most valuable fisheries that ever existed. suddenly you had made an canadian fisherman in these waters. at the same time jousting for position and attention to high violence is bound to happen. this is the last land border dispute between canada and the united states. it could be magnified to the point
where there could be cost that would be significant to quote countries. border disputes don't go away, they discuss some things going to happen. in some ways, bob's ring is dimensionally complex. in another sense, it is simple and direct. see in the boat remain the ruling force. solved one man's life on the question to fish thing that brings not only the rewards of toil, but a sense of freedom. awe
we just left the board of seal go longer and an island we're here right now. little ship is. we're headed towards the giant island. you know all of your traps in the great named brian got all i'm president, graham and perkins association. i started visiting before i got out of high school, winette ever a good it up with their idea of the vision. and i would build if again roll my back date under draft. every one of them are in the raise on this area. water here is close. and when you come to law and you'll see the gears great up on it, that's the most lucrative spot. that's where the most the guys are going to go. that's where most of them way it's going to go. i guess the last 4 or 5 years it's
been getting more and more grounded every every, every year. i think it's about a 1000000 government never get control of some of the greys on that. they never really had full control of it. all they do is to cause enough conflict issues during the visual area. i think where they would like to say yeah, but then i go see the regimen almost like a drop all the people drinking in the grey zone long before it was ever great. but the canadian government cut back on there for trolls of the wine. so the americans were freaking undisputed katy water is actually one of my old vol. they claim that it was over the line over us today. the line that it on the inside which was not. so i came out and divided them and all that they didn't get back. i'm just going to get that again off of that because it was on the bottom. they gave it back. i guess
they didn't want to walk home after 4 years of or you know about it, one of the americans that if you want, i mean economic benefit out of that. in the summer dawn when you're not vision, you better come visit with the guy from the government of canada said just the swipe, little pan buddy. the swipe of a pan and within 2 weeks we were ah, yeah, live on our job that says united states i can on the, on the and i think our, which is that in that line playing with own isn't really of all american not in all is only so much you load them all you feel like you have to the event that the valve dependency property. 20 years ago, there would have been hardly any boats from either side. over time, the abundance of lobster has increased, made it more lucrative, and people have figured out, we want to get it cracked and those lobsters,
we gotta finish it the same time they do. we're not bagging man or canadian waters . we're going to vision here on this granite ledge above this sheltered co begins his day one day in the life of one man mm. the sea with its islands, place of business for a whole breed of men who don't mind wet feet. canada m u s. chair, a 5525 mile long border and misses the last piece of land that are still contesting after more than 200 years of order making so much i a seal island north rock actually depending on whether they're american or canadian,
that determines whether the water is around them, car, american, or canadian. so this grey's own it contains a fairly rich harvest of lobsters. but it's so job for the laser. you are the fearful at the right moment the man eases his motor rolls, his wheel, pulls his crutch. this is kathy brings the war. the board enters it in the snatch blocks. takes a couple of turns around to winch head. and the hoist to take over the work, the trap breaks water and his hold on deck bushel basket makes a satisfactory ketchel on a lobster boat. this is one of those days you get ahead. this is where the border now and that is the agreed upon border between graham and an island and the coast to maine. and the reason there's this david here is that if my child seal
island, which is here, is canadian, the canadian say this is the border that would exist. united states actually basis it's claim on a channel called a northwest channel that runs along the ocean floor here. that creates this greys all. it's all based on whether we try a seal island is american or canadian. when revolutionary war with the peace treaty was signed in paris. so the treaty said that all islands within 20 leagues of the coast of the newly independent 13 colonies would be america, except any island that had ever been part of nova scotia. the official u. s. position is that the chinese seal island is not now and never has been part of nova scotia. this is the beginning of the conflict alongside the long legged war or wish to come to rest for the 1st time since
daybreak. unloads his catch and weighs it in the way shipment to the market for most of recorded history, those waters for basically just exploited by me. fishermen in 2002, the canadians pain their fishing seasons to allow kenny and lobster men to fish in the grades all during the summer. ill pensions began then because just so many more people fishing in the waters. my concern is there is no country in the world that's more important to the united states and canada and to allow an issue like this to sit there with the potential causing an ugly dispute. it could be magnified to the point where there could be cost. that would be significant to both countries. mm hm. mm.
with we've been in the business for a little more than 10 years. there has been a huge increase in the landings. not too long ago. it was $20000000.00 pounds, 305060 1000000 pounds, and then it got to be maybe a $100000000.00 pounds. when i got to that point, people really started to take notice. and lately i spent about a 130000000 pounds. so it's been a huge increase in supply it could be because waters continue to warm in the state of maine and it's pushing back to catch north and catch seems to be going down more to mid coast and beyond,
which is what we called down east main and which is often called way down east is called the greys all right. along with canada, there's definitely more landings in that area than the word 10 years ago there's. there's no question about, but i think that people for the majority of people feel that we're at our peak and landings right now. i think that's on the front of everybody's mind. so at this point, the issues that raise on can impact the market for main lobster because that's really main product in it. and once it goes to canada comes back, is product to canada, then people don't associate it with main. the main brand is really what main sells, and it's not just the lobster industry, it's the tourism industry. and if we lose market share because of that,
that can really hurt the industry for an ally ourselves to be more efficient quicker with our transactions. but with that comes a trade off, every device is a potential entry point for security at any machine because it's an extension of traditional time. the defenders have always been one step behind the attackers. formidable, no one comes option in laws or if it's not
a matter of, if it happens, it's a matter of when who i i officer is incredibly important here on the coast to me. it was worth more than $500000000.00 just to the boat last year. it's not just the captain. also, the crews are doing the wrong. it becomes a huge, huge driver of the economy on the house for track builders, for boat builders, for all the infrastructure, and that goes into distributing laughter. one of the most valuable fisheries that ever existed. interestingly, it's not actually the price that has that much,
but the volume has changed a huge amount up to the early 1900 ninety's. they were only landing about 20000000 pounds in 2016, we landed 131000000 pounds. but even with all of that year to year change, the landings haven't been uniform across the state. a water temperature, dr. biological prophecies for lobster me and as water warm, it is possible that those biological processes could break down. over the last 10 to 15 years, gulf man has one faster than 99 percent of the global engine area in. if you look south of the gulf main places like rhode island and southern massachusetts, the lobster of fishery there is basically collapse. beginning around that timeframe . lobster catches in the state of main, started to increase at an exponential rate even when the water from morning it's cooler. than the areas that they were leaving, we can see that species are steadily starting to move towards the pause.
there course, other changes that are going on in the ecosystem. one of the really big ones who spend the decline of the ground fish like how to wear big creditors on tiny officers that's opened up a lot of habitat for lobster to move into. the larger population has taken advantage of those environmental conditions and had a boom, ah, what we're seeing is that the lobsters becoming a bigger fishery right along the border between the us and canada. and it's not a good scenario. they are competing for the same resources and yet they're living by different rules. large lobsters are able to be caught by canadians, but not by americans. they are fishing with different types of gear. sometimes heavier gear seasons are different. and that's creating more controversy, especially now that it's an increase in it so lucrative right now. it's a worry about what's going to happen to those with
any for the hydro, like how you plastic like nobody good here. all this stuff made it capable of standing up in these areas. mm hm. oh yeah. bob's or any time i wanted, i think the moment he did it, the old days used to board the boat, but it's illegal now. because of the like 13 or 14 pounder, i would say him, joe, our main gate, that's part of the layer management strategy loretta guy making congestion areas integrate some of the hotspot
with can i know my class line over there in the sand? you asked walters undisputed, there's a big boat with a big gun on it, but if you didn't stop, they'd tell you they're going to fire in. oh, and if you don't stop, they'll speed engine out. but that's a general plan. u. s. coast guard the times in different directions at different time. and it's hard to tell where other people are on the blue one down below, as i know is canadian just by the logo with that might be an american down below is there too. was a lot of little bumps like right now with i'd like somebody come along and they get
all kinds of room, but your actual throw a lot different than where you're blue and you make a mistake and get on top. somebody else and cut you off. there's all kinds of people that bad conflict. sometimes you lose some friends. all part of it. we might have some fun on this one border with my brother's lobster, fish, my nephews labs to fish my grandchildren lives to fish in the blood. in this community, main source of revenue is our fishermen. they keep to street lights, going keep our town roads pays,
they keep going. if they were to lose that area, there would be a huge impact on the downtown. for 1984, there was no canadian in this area, there was no grace. so peachy goes by. they bring more and more fishman over. we're talking to the country. so it's a lot harder to resolve different people get angry and it's getting more dangerous every day. every lobster this caught by a canadian is one last, not caught by an american dollars. not in the local economy which we need drastically. ah, we don't have any territory, i can't go any further. i can't go any further to the southern because if you get into bike shop or jones port territory lose. so what fishman, we have is crowded into the area already as it is this territory. well, the canadians have got a 110 square miles, right? that's pretty big job. that's what the biggest fear is not having
a place to fish this community to be on the staff or if you took them bottom line, i think this time some needs to be done this before. we could have stop this before he started. if we had any political help, ah, our government does not come back us up as much as we need more back in from our government. if i go over a lot of the canadian side of the bottom line, they take me by boat, my gear, my crew put us in jail. ah. but they come with a ball mile, the cutlass shore and fish. so are you going to do any better? somebody's going to be filled with it is on this on that side. that's my and it's just a matter of time with me .
when i started down here. now this was a one man patrol. and now you've got 4 guys plus myself down here in this area. we enforce all laws in the state of maine and main focuses commercial fishery. you know, before we might go to the gray zone. now there, we're down there to hot area for all the so open to get. there was fish in here fishman astronomical in the last few years, and people know that, i mean i statistics when they do, they're going fishing. we had it again crowded by the caney, pushing them further in sudden, over talk from all purpose. we've got a couple complaints when they think they get home much community. i know they would
like us to enforce a law and we have no jurisdiction door, no longer on. i mean it's just that it's not going to drive them out. there's more comment on me now. we have back few years ago. and he was like from $9.00 to $12.00 boast on that cane and vessels fishing graham and, and now you got both from graham and cap, bella, and always kosher fish. i've heard of rocking 45 votes and a lot of these fishermen max, know they got a lot of investment in and they're not catching lobsters. things get rough campus. and i think that's where you're conflicts dodge me.
ok i i for recalls degrees only because once the battle started over it is kind of became a bit gray as to who actually on that is actually the 1st impression the fish in the garage when the good lord put the lob fusion, the water, he didn't say leisure for me or for graham and angel catch me if you can get along main lobster fishermen fishing where they're bothering our catch. let's get down
and catch some of them before they do. the gravestone is really, you know, contributed to the economy on graham and, and, and we're contributing more to the provincial and federal coffers in any community . our shy because of the lobster industry. so nobody fished it from canada for years and years and years because it was more lucrative to fish sovereign canadian water. but we're getting no economic benefit to canada to that fresh water that we consider to be or so he created a summer fishery. it went from one year we, we maybe that you had the band and other years we thought up to a $130.00 so big difference and hopefully it hopefully stays that way for a while. but most of the attention has been a boat is very high dollar value and everybody wants it. they don't go to get it. they want us michelle's bus, just the out reg dispute president where it's your taken our lodgers and you know, the other guy, i know you're taking our lunch afternoon fisherman's association right
now. we're in the neighborhood of 20250 members. both captains and crew and that probably one of our highest points right now. it was really of more of a sovereignty issue. when we went down there, it's a way for the government of canada for the people of candidates continued, claim that piece of bottom that both the u. s. thank you, have a claim and it's a way for us to drive an economic benefit from that thought that we weren't able to before. over the last i'd say 5 to 7 years or landings have almost double. so it's created really a year round economy here on the island. it's like a domino effect because, you know, at the fishery does good than the small. this is do well. it was fishing ended. the fisherman go on unemployment because there was nothing to do. and now people are working year round to folks are getting larger engines. there's how she's being sold in bought of 90 percent of people are driving vehicles. you know, the economy is great,
but more lucrative. it's become the more money people are making them more nasty. people have become here. horror stories about having when he or charles towed into a ball or something, you go hook on to it for hours trying to get contracts out there. this big file or keep yourself clear, the other guy, basically that's the name of the game. and it's always a bit contentious to go there. i try hard not to be worse and i have to be, but there comes a point when you get pushed so far where you just have to say ok, that's enough. we're going to stay here because if i ask you to move somewhere and it's gonna cost you a few $100.00, you might go. yeah, well it's not that big a deal. it's gonna cost you a $100000.00 going anywhere. and that's what's happened. there's no warm and fuzzy stand there. i mean, i've got some respect for some of their fishermen. i think some of them do for us. and you know, if somebody was thinking i'm going to go alongside help seems i would. it was a canadian boat. but if they're not coming to my house routine coffee and i'm not
unwelcome and desperate thousands of migrants endure. another freezing night before a heavily guarded polish border, apparently willing to take the greater risks to get into the you. ah, anti lock down rally, sweep europe with austria, becoming the 1st nation to impose a shocked down only for the unvaccinated. the to, to your decision has split public opinion. the u. s. is to trillion economic recovery plan is under scrutiny and mid report. they could inflame already high inflation on social problems. definitely philly and facial more so on food. a lot of people were out of work and they're spending their savings just to stay alive. honestly, people savers have gone out.
