New officials have been nominated to take over the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy. Earth Institute Executive Director Steven Cohen analyzes whether either of these leaders or agencies is capable of leading the transition to a sustainable, low polluting, and fossil-fuel free economy, and argues that pushing for the maximum extraction of domestic sources of fossil fuels while attempting to develop alternate forms of energy “is the absence of an energy strategy and the opposite of what we need.”
Val Ackerman, faculty of the Master of Science in Sports Management Program, discusses the evolution of women's collegiate sports with Jim Delany, who has been the Big Ten commissioner since 1989. During his tenure, he has overseen the effort to make women’s sports 40 percent, up from 29 percent, of total collegiate sports. Delaney explains that sports enriches the educational experience, “It's something that's tied to being in communities, being constructive members. These competitions and opportunities are really more than just games and teams; they're part of a fabric of higher education. If we're going to sponsor them, they ought to be widely available.” Delany was recently a guest of Ackerman and Neal Pislon’s Leadership and Personnel Management class.
Thanks to Hurricane Sandy, climate and environment have returned to the American political agenda. Steven Cohen, Executive Director of the Earth Institute, shows how the storm continues to inform public opinion on climate policy debates and shape the legitimacy and reality of political views.
