It’s open season on open space

We are losing public parks and open space to new construction and competing uses. […]

Big oil just got a pass on methane reporting.

In some parts of the country, the season just breezed in three weeks ahead of schedule. Balmy weather may seem like more good news after an already unseasonably warm winter, but pause a beat before you reach for your flip-flops.

According to the “spring index,” a long-term data set which tracks the start of the season from year-to-year, spring is showing up earlier and earlier across the United States.

The culprit behind the trend? Climate change. And it’s bringing a batch of nasty consequences. Early warmth means early pests, like ticks and mosquitoes, and a longer, rougher allergy season. Agriculture and tourism can be thrown off, too. Washington D.C.’s cherry blossoms usually draw crowds in April, for instance, but they’re projected to peak three weeks early this year.

Spring isn’t shifting smoothly, either. It’s changing in fits and starts. Eggs are hatching and trees are losing their leaves, but temperatures could easily plunge again, with disastrous consequences for new baby animals and plants.

Play this out another 80 years, and it’s easy to imagine a world out of sync. Sure, your picnic in December sounds nice. But bees could lose their wildflowers, and groundhogs may never see their shadows again.

Millennials Looking for a Place in the Emerging Green Economy

This is the season when my colleagues and I spend a lot of time reviewing applications for graduate school, most of which were submitted after the recent election. I direct two master’s programs at Columbia, one a Master of Public Administration in Environmental Science and Policy and the other a Master of Science in Sustainability Management. Together, the two programs enroll about 300 students. Columbia also has programs in climate and society, sustainable development and development practice. Among this student body there is a deep sense of unease with the direction of the U.S. federal government, but that is coupled with a high degree of confidence in the importance of the emerging green economy.

The Second Avenue Subway: Another Small Piece Of The Sustainable City

The story of mass transit on the east side of Manhattan is a sad saga of government promises and failures. The old elevated lines on Second and Third Avenues were knocked down, but never replaced by the promised subway line. As the city revived in the 21st century, the Lexington line was the only subway serving the east side and it became dangerously crowded during rush hours. On New Year’s Day 2017, the impossible took place and the first phase of a new Second Avenue subway line was finally opened. This PR video tells the story. The MTA website describes the new line’s route and features. In this season of doubt about government and the possibilities of acting as a community, we see living proof of our ability to work together and build. A few months ago the MTA was hedging on meeting the deadline of opening the new line by January 1, and Governor Cuomo made it his personal mission to lead the project to completion. MTA management, unions, and contractors all became aware that this project had special meaning to the Governor, and Cuomo demonstrated what visible, positive public leadership could accomplish […]

The Gift of Gathering

Christmas shopping has never been my favorite thing. As much as I try to get it all done online, invariably I find myself pushing through the crowds in a physical store because there are just certain things that I never think about buying until they are in front of me. It’s not until some unknown, but relevant object seems to pop up off the shelf that I realize it’s exactly the perfect gift for someone on my list. So, in the very first store on the very first morning I set out to find those gifts, I ran into Laurie David, whom I had not seen in awhile. Laurie has been a good friend since we first met over fifteen years ago when she joined the board of PS Arts, a nonprofit arts organization with a mission to provide arts education to underserved public schools and communities. During the time she was involved with PS Arts she took our small budget and quadrupled it with her passion and savvy business acumen. I took our chance meeting as a good omen that the season was starting on a bright note. Laurie is a powerhouse and a success in everything she does […]
