Human activity has moved mass amounts of carbon stored within the earth and released it into the atmosphere. Let’s face it, we’ve burned a lot of fossil fuels. Millions of years of stored carbon in the span of the 200 years. As we begin to feel the effects of this drastic change to the earth’s systems in the form of warming, severe weather, ice retreat and other symptoms, its natural to wonder how we can put the genie back in the bottle. Scientists like recent Harvard PhD Graduate Katie Dagon are researching ways to geoengineer solutions on a major scale. Ways to keep the heat out, and remove carbon from the atmosphere.

Professors Christie Manning and Elise Amel have dedicated much of their careers to answering questions like these, and many more, in their mission to understand the psychology of sustainability. Listen to our conversation to find out why “there are no environmental problems, just human behavior problems”.

Inland-Crane-Inc-Boise-Machine-Market-678x381Construction cranes and lane closures everywhere you look- it’s hard not to notice the growth and development occurring across the valley these days. Like it or not our population here in southwestern Idaho is expanding rapidly. But how did we get to this point?

Todd-Shallat-200x300Dr. Todd Shallat, tenured professor of Urban Studies and Community Development at BSU and prolific author (his latest work is “Half the World: Refugees Transform the City of Trees” was released this spring) guides us through the development of the valley’s land, economy and culture over the past 30 years.

change1marker-anthonyChange is all around us and as we dive into a two month theme of “Change in the Valley” we wanted to set the stage and discuss how we deal with change with a local expert on the topic. Laura and I spoke with Dr. Tony Marker a professor of Organizational Performance and Workplace Learning at BSU about the types of
change and how people adapt to changes (or not) depending upon the circumstances and change factors.

Our producer Laura came out from the shadows to join me behind the mic to have a conversation with Dr. Marker and what a great topic to jump into the fray on!
