In episode 88 of America Adapts, host Doug Parsons interviews Dr. Marcy Rockman, cultural resource and climate adaptation expert. Marcy, until recently, was the Cultural Resources Adaptation Coordinator for the National Park Service and is now the IPCC Team Lead with the International Council on Monuments and Sites Climate Change and Heritage Working Group. Marcy and I discuss her time at the Park Service, developing the first of its kind cultural resource and climate change white paper. We also talk about how climate change will impact historic sites and how it’s a threat multiplier.  Marcy also discusses the tension at the Park Service between natural resources and cultural resources which ultimately led to her leaving the NPS. Hear about these issues and much more!

Other Topics covered:

  • Is time more important than resources?
  • When do historic sites stop making history?
  • Climate change is a threat multiplier for cultural history.
  • Has the NPS ever let a park or resource ‘go’ due to climate change?
  • Some historic sites are ‘frozen in time’ but climate change may allow them to start making history again.
  • Should we let Ft. Jefferson in Florida fall apart into the sea?
  • Tension at NPS on natural resources versus historic preservation.
  • Natural resource parks and cultural resources parks are sometimes treated in a gender oriented way. Nat resources the masculine, cultural the more feminine.
  • History of the cultural resources memo at NPS and what went into it.

In episode 87 of America Adapts, host Doug Parsons interviews Dr. Kyle Powys Whyte. Kyle is an Associate Professor of Philosophy and Community Sustainability and a faculty affiliate of the American Indian & Indigenous Studies and Environmental Science & Policy programs at Michigan State University. Kyle is also an enrolled member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation. Kyle and I discuss how indigenous people define urgency in the face of climate change, managed retreat for tribal communities, the national climate assessment and tribal issues, the sometimes controversial relationship between tribes and climate scientists, climate change’s role in ongoing colonization of indigenous people, effective tribal engagement and much more in a fascinating and sometimes raw conversation.

Donate to America Adapts

Other Topics covered:

  • Fundamentals of indigenous people and climate adaptation.
  • Tribal people have historically ‘adapted’ to environmental change many times.
  • What does managed retreat mean for tribal people?
  • Is history repeating itself with displacing native people in response to climate change?
  • Can existing tribal treaty rights be used as a legal tool to combat climate change?
  • How did the recent national climate assessment do on tribal issues (hint: pretty well);
  • Does tribal integrity help with adapting to climate change more effectively?
  • For tribes, resilience is cultural and spiritual, and something always done by tribes.
  • Indigenous people can define climate urgency and intrinsic value differently than western cultures.
  • The challenges of tribal engagement, from both tribal perspective and western cultures.
  • Does tribal ‘bureaucracy’ inhibit climate adaptation and partner building?
  • The sometimes controversial relationship between tribes and climate scientists.
