The Earth has entered a new age—the Anthropocene—in which humans are the most powerful influence on global ecology. Since the mid-twentieth century, the accelerating pace of energy use, greenhouse gas emissions, and population growth has thrust the planet into a massive uncontrolled experiment. J. R. McNeill and Peter Engelke's book The Great Acceleration: An Environmental History of the Anthropocene since 1945 (Harvard UP, 2016) explains its causes and consequences, highlighting the role of energy systems, as well as trends in climate change, urbanization, and environmentalism. More than any other factor, human dependence on fossil fuels inaugurated the Anthropocene. Before 1700, people used little in the way of fossil fuels, but over the next two hundred years coal became the most important energy source. When oil entered the picture, coal and oil soon accounted for seventy-five percent of human energy use. This allowed far more economic activity and produced a higher standard of living than people had ever known—but it created far more ecological disruption. We are now living in the Anthropocene. The period from 1945 to the present represents the most anomalous period in the history of humanity's relationship with the biosphere. Three-quarters of the carbon dioxide humans have contributed to the atmosphere has accumulated since World War II ended, and the number of people on Earth has nearly tripled. So far, humans have dramatically altered the planet's biogeochemical systems without consciously managing them. If we try to control these systems through geoengineering, we will inaugurate another stage of the Anthropocene. Where it might lead, no one can say for sure. J.R. McNeill holds the appointment of University Professor at Georgetown University, serving as a faculty member of the School of Foreign Service and History Department. Professor McNeill is also a past president of American Society for Environmental History and the American Historical Association. Peter Engelke is the Deputy Director of Foresight at the Atlantic Council's Scowcroft Strategy Initiative and a Nonresident Senior Fellow, Global Energy Center.

Listen in for a moment to connect with a leadership consultant around, The Power in Managing Up! Key Lessons: 1) Think about managing up as a way of “joining upward” and partnering with your leadership. 2) Take a step back and listen closely to how leaders talk about their pain points – what are their struggles, what might they be stressed about, what are they watching or tracking, and what are their drivers. Once you do this ask yourself, “what is my role in providing solutions and helping my leader overcome this?” 3) Ensure your approach is focused on listening, learning, empathy, and understanding.

On this sixth episode of the On the Balcony podcast, Michael is joined by Ian Palmquist, Deputy Director at the Equality Federation and the Board President of the Adaptive Leadership Network.  In his experience of advocating for LGBTQ+ rights with government officials, Palmquist has become familiar with authority and its resources and constraints for the practice of leadership.  When advocating and legislating meet, Ian has discovered that it can be challenging to satiate one side's appetite for change while assuaging the other's fear of it.   In Heifetz's work, he famously refers to this dilemma as the razor's edge.  Managing disparate expectations and goals can feel like wearing a straitjacket or walking on the cliff's side, and finding that balance can be an exacting pursuit.  Elected officials often have to play the political power game and frequently at the expense of real progress.  That's why, in Palmquist's career, it's been all the more important for him to maintain that delicate balance.  He does so by acquainting himself with the specific tools and constraints that accompany authority, and journeying together with legislators to work toward mutual success. Navigating that fine line isn't easy, but Ian fully understands that the fight for equay demands and deserves it - and he's more than willing to ‘cut his feet' in the battle to achieve this noble goal. The Finer Details of this Episode:  Authority as a straitjacket When authority meets advocacy Managing disparate expectations Crossing boundaries Political power game Engagement Challenges and successes of the LBGTQ+ movement Quotes:  “I'm also the Board President of Adaptive Leadership Network, which has been such a wonderful opportunity for me to bring some of the organization building skills that I have to work and support this global community of changemakers.” “Wow, there's like a language to talk about all of these things that I've been grappling with and haven't known how to even speak about them, much less solve some of those problems.” “This authority figure, you know, is trying to walk this very narrow, razor's edge–this balance beam to stay balanced.” “People were looking at me to stop this, and I just didn't know how; it didn't seem possible.” “I do think that the LGBTQ+ movement, when it's been kind of at its best, and at its most successful, is when we've been willing to meet people where they are, take them on a journey with us, and try to go in with as open hearts as possible.” “It's really hard to find a way to engage with the folks who are really pushing this. It's hard to find a way to cross that boundary, when you know it's not a genuine difference of opinion or lack of understanding.  It's a really calculated attempt to gain power at the expense of others.” “So there's always this interplay between elected officials and the hearts and minds in the community that they have to navigate.” “To stay balanced on the edge, one needs a strategic understanding of the specific tools and constraints that come with one's authority. Yet, in either case, an authority figure cuts his feet.” Links:  On the Balcony on Apple Podcasts:https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/on-the-balcony/id1627073051 ( https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast) Leadership Without Easy Answers on Amazon:https://www.amazon.com/Leadership-Without-Answers-Ronald-Heifetz/dp/0674518586 ( )https://www.amazon.com/Leadership-Without-Answers (https://www.amazon.com/Leadership-Without-Answers) Equality Federation: https://www.equalityfederation.org/ (https://www.equalityfederation.org/)  Adaptive Leadership Network:  https://adaptive-leadership.net/ (https://adaptive-leadership.net/) Mentioned in this episode: KONU Workshop Ad https://on-the-balcony.captivate.fm/shorturl-at-lqtw9 (KONU Workshop Ad)

The Indo-Pacific faces multiple security challenges, ranging from the risk of major war arising from territorial and maritime disputes to significant human and environmental threats to ecosystems. Exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, many states remain at odds over governance issues, how to confront pressing regional disputes and how to deal with countries outside the Asian region seeking to have greater influence. While the role of existing regional institutions such as ASEAN remains central to regional security and prosperity, improved regional architecture will be needed to address maritime security challenges with a clear understanding of priorities across regional states. What are the central maritime security challenges facing states in the region? How do they respond individually and collectively to these challenges? And what legal and institutional mechanisms exist to manage ongoing disputes?

Too often, we are told that Russia plays a weak hand well. But, perhaps the nation's cards are better than we know. Russia ranks significantly behind the US and China by traditional measures of power: GDP, population size and health, and military might. Yet 25 years removed from its mid-1990s nadir following the collapse of the USSR, Russia has become a supremely disruptive force in world politics. Kathryn E. Stoner assesses the resurrection of Russia and argues that we should look beyond traditional means of power to assess its strength in global affairs. Taking into account how Russian domestic politics under Vladimir Putin influence its foreign policy, Stoner explains how Russia has battled its way back to international prominence. From Russia's seizure of the Crimea from Ukraine to its military support for the Assad regime in Syria, the country has reasserted itself as a major global power. Stoner examines these developments and more in tackling the big questions about Russia's turnaround and global future. Stoner marshals data on Russia's political, economic, and social development and uncovers key insights from its domestic politics. Russian people are wealthier than the Chinese, debt is low, and fiscal policy is good despite sanctions and the volatile global economy. Vladimir Putin's autocratic regime faces virtually no organized domestic opposition. Yet, mindful of maintaining control at home, Russia under Putin also uses its varied power capacities to extend its influence abroad. While we often underestimate Russia's global influence, the consequences are evident in the disruption of politics in the US, Syria, and Venezuela, to name a few. Russia Resurrected: Its Power and Purpose in a New Global Order (Oxford UP, 2020) is an eye-opening reassessment of the country, identifying the actual sources of its power in international politics and why it has been able to redefine the post-Cold War global order. Kathryn E. Stoner is the Deputy Director at the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies and a Senior Fellow at the Center on Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law, and at the Center for International Security and Cooperation, all at Stanford University. She is the author orco-editor of five books, including Transitions to Democracy: A Comparative Perspective, written and edited with Ambassador Michael A. McFaul, and Resisting the State: Reform and Retrenchment in Post-Soviet Russia. Charles Coutinho, PH.
