Guest Tiernan Sittenfeld had glimpses in high school of not only the grandeur of America's landscapes but also the degradation that was happening within them when she saw clear cuts up close. She was drawn to understand how we can best conserve these lands and the communities linked to them and took advantage of the first opportunity to earn an Environmental Studies certificate in college and take an international study program in Kenya. Those experiences, and a term spent working on a state senate race, made her see the overlap between conservation and politics.She began her career as an organizer leading student communities and expanded into more general audiences, exercising her public speaking skills and community building skills along the way. When she needed to decide whether to pursue a law degree, she realized she'd found a place where she could grow all sorts of skills and tackle bigger and bigger challenges.In this episode, find out from Tiernan how organizing and connecting with others can sometimes help you find your own voice…on Roads Taken with Leslie Jennings Rowley. About This Episode's GuestTiernan Sittenfeld currently serves as Senior Vice President for Government Affairs at the League of Conservation Voters where she has worked for the past 17 years, tirelessly advocating for sound environmental laws and policies to help protect our planet and the communities that are most impacted by climate and environmental change. She lives in Washington DC with her husband and two sons, where she has been named by the National Journal as one of the top 50 people changing the game in Washington. Find more episodes at https://roadstakenshow.comFor another story about making a career fighting for better environmental policy, listen to our episode with Kira Lawrence. Executive Producer/Host: Leslie Jennings RowleyMusic: Brian BurrowsEmail the show at RoadsTakenShow@gmail.com

In the hopes of saving a declining population of North Atlantic Right whales, NOAA aims to institute a 10-knot speed limit along much of the Atlantic coast. We cut through the clutter and get to the heart of this matter with this emergency podcast with Viking Director of Government Affairs and Sustainability John DePersenaire. You can read the full proposal from NOAA here: https://www.regulations.gov/document/NOAA-NMFS-2022-0022-0005 Please let your voice be heard and comment here: https://www.regulations.gov/commenton/NOAA-NMFS-2022-0022-0005 Open Letter to NOAA,  For as long as I can remember marine magazines and NOAA have enjoyed a strong, professional relationship because of the alignment in our values. NOAA's work in regulating safe seafood, protecting estuaries, providing hurricane forecasting, navigational support, tide and current data, etc. is greatly appreciated by the boating community.  It is from this place of respect that I'm surprised to learn about the rushed proposal from NOAA Fisheries to enact a speed-reduction policy that will devastate the commercial and recreational boating industries with a flawed plan to preserve the declining population of North Atlantic Right Whales.  As you aptly illustrate on your homepage (https://www.fisheries.noaa.gov/about-us) the U.S. fishing industry accounts for: “1.2 million commercial jobs, 553,000 recreational jobs. $165 billion in commercial sales, $89 billion in recreational sales...”  These numbers say nothing about the hard-working men and women that I've had the privilege to meet in the boating industry. Having been born into boating and being lucky enough to work in my dream job as the editor-in-chief of Power & Motoryacht, I've met dockhands, marina managers, boat builders, engine manufacturers, techs, designers, boat show assemblers, captains, CEOs, receptionists, delivery drivers, tugboat operators, harbor pilots, waterborne first responders and so many others. The men and women in the marine industry come from all walks of life but there is one through-line that characterizes most of the people I've had the chance to meet: They love being part of the boating industry. They love playing a role in a pastime that brings joy to so many; a pastime that brings people together better than any other hobby I know.  I respect the work you're doing to preserve the dying population of Right Whales. More than any other demographic, we boaters are the ones who care for the ocean its many mammals the most. I personally will never forget sitting on the bow of my parent's 26-foot Sea Ray off Cape Cod and seeing Humpback whales for the first time. It's a memory I'll never forget; one I hope to replicate with my young son and, God willing, with his children one day. I support your mission but you're treating boaters as an enemy in this fight when we should be looked to as your greatest ally and resource.  Please push off this disastrous plan that will cripple the industry I love and give us a seat at the table to work out solutions. I am standing by and will make myself available to contribute to a common-sense solution at your convenience. Thank you for your time and—hopefully—your honest consideration.

This week Chrissy Wozniak discusses a new proposed rule by the SEC, with Mary-Thomas Hart, the Chief Counsel, Government Affairs at National Cattlemen's Beef Association.The National Cattlemen's Beef Association (NCBA) reiterated the need for a limited version of the Securities and Exchange Commission's (SEC) greenhouse gas disclosure rule following SEC Chairman Gary Gensler's testimony before the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking.  The SEC's greenhouse gas disclosure rule, proposed earlier this year, would require publicly traded companies to disclose their direct (scope 1), indirect/energy use (scope 2), and supply chain (scope 3) greenhouse gas emissions. The requirement to include scope 3 emissions would place a disproportionate burden on cattle producers whose beef is part of the supply chain for publicly traded restaurants and retailers. Additionally, the rule exposes individual producers to additional levels of legal liability.NCBA previously submitted technical comments on the rule and individual cattle producers sent over 7,406 emails to SEC commissioners and members of Congress expressing concern with rule. NCBA has encouraged the SEC to remove the requirement to disclose scope 3 emissions, which would lessen the burden on cattle producers.The National Cattlemen's Beef Association (NCBA) has represented America's cattle producers since 1898, preserving the heritage and strength of the industry through education and public policy.  As the largest association of cattle producers, NCBA works to create new markets and increase demand for beef.  Efforts are made possible through membership contributions.

Alex Nathanson's book A History of Solar Power Art and Design (Routledge, 2021) examines the history of creative applications of photovoltaic (PV) solar power, including sound art, wearable technology, public art, industrial design, digital media, building integrated design, and many others. The growth in artists and designers incorporating solar power into their work reflects broader social, economic, and political events. As the cost of PV cells has come down, they have become more accessible and have found their way into a growing range of design applications and artistic practices. As climate change continues to transform our environment and becomes a greater public concern, the importance of integrating sustainable energy technologies into our culture grows as well. The book will be of interest to scholars working in art history, design history, design studies, environmental studies, environmental humanities, and sustainable energy design.

NAFCU is committed to representing, assisting, educating and defending our member credit unions to help them grow, and help grow the industry as well.In this conversation, Greg and I talk about how credit unions are critical in this current economic state and what NAFCU is doing to protect them. Along the way, Greg discusses the Credit Card Competition Act of 2022 (CCCA), the battle between banks and retailers, rapid consolidation, and inflation. He explains how these pull resources from economically-distressed areas, especially rural and inner city communities. Greg speaks passionately about financial advocacy, and he shares how people can get involved.As we wrap up the episode, Greg talks about Tom Brady, his hack for keeping up with sports, and the product he can't live without.

Trigger Warning: In this episode we talk about sexual violence against Native women. If you need help or to talk to someone here are some resources you can call or chat: the StrongHearts Native Helpline at https://strongheartshelpline.org/ 1-844-7NATIVE, National Domestic Violence Hotline at https://www.thehotline.org/ 1-800-799-SAFE or the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network (RAINN) at https://www.rainn.org/ 1-800-656-HOPE. 1 in 2 Indigenous women have experienced sexual violence. Even with this staggeringly high statistic, it's near impossible for Indigenous women to access the care and support needed. Juskwa Burnett, Indigenous Advocate, Moccasins of Hope, talks to us about her experience working with Indigenous sexual violence survivors and the ways in which sexual violence impacts her community. In addition, Tarah Demant, Interim National Director of Programs, Advocacy, and Government Affairs with Amnesty International USA, sits down to talk to us about healthcare and judicial barriers faced by Indigenous women as it relates to sexual violence and Amensty International USA's new report detailing the barriers erected by the U.S. government when it comes to Alaska Native and American Indian women's access to healthcare and support after experiencing disproportionate rates of sexual violence.  The United States' response to this epidemic of sexual violence is confusing and maze-like, preventing Indigenous women from being able to access the healthcare they need or get justice for crimes committed. This complex system results in confusion and chaos, and further exacerbates the sexual violence epidemic faced by Indigenous women. The root of this problem is based in the US's erosion of tribal authority, allowing for these extremely unfortunate circumstances to flourish, despite the fact that this country is obligated to protect Indigenous communities under the UN Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous People. Amnesty International USA considers four sectors as related to the sexual violence epidemic experienced by Indigenous women: erosion of tribal authority, jurisdiction, healthcare and support services, and prosecution. Congress has created centuries of contradictory law regarding Indigenous peoples and Indigenous country, leading to an unnavigable system. A massive lack of resources for Indigenous tribal police limit their authority to respond to crimes. This means people's rapes and assaults are not investigated and perpetrators face no repercussions for their crimes. When Indigenous women require healthcare and services after experiencing sexual violence, many simply can't access it. Health centers are located far away from villages and reservations, and Indian Health Services (IHS) is federally underfunded to a point where it is an open question whether or not a rape kit will be available. The justice system in Indian country is also massively federally underfunded and complicated, leading to a lack of prosecution for sexual violence crimes. LinksAmnesty International USA on TwitterAmnesty International USA on FacebookThe never-ending maze: continued failure to protect indigenous women from sexual violence in the USAStrongHearts Native HelplineSupport the show

Spatial Revolution: Architecture and Planning in the Early Soviet Union (Cornell UP, 2022) is the first comparative parallel study of Soviet architecture and planning to create a narrative arc across a vast geography. The narrative binds together three critical industrial-residential projects in Baku, Magnitogorsk, and Kharkiv, built during the first fifteen years of the Soviet project and followed attentively worldwide after the collapse of capitalist markets in 1929. Among the revelations provided by Christina E. Crawford is the degree to which outside experts participated in the construction of the Soviet industrial complex, while facing difficult topographies, near-impossible deadlines, and inchoate theories of socialist space-making. Crawford describes how early Soviet architecture and planning activities were kinetic and negotiated and how questions about the proper distribution of people and industry under socialism were posed and refined through the construction of brick and mortar, steel and concrete projects, living laboratories that tested alternative spatial models. As a result, Spatial Revolution answers important questions of how the first Soviet industrialization drive was a catalyst for construction of thousands of new enterprises on remote sites across the Eurasian continent, an effort that spread to far-flung sites in other socialist states—and capitalist welfare states—for decades to follow.
