    Ep 61: Carbon Pricing with Dr. Marc Hafstead (Resources for the Future)

    Ep 61: Carbon Pricing with Dr. Marc Hafstead (Resources for the Future)

    Are we at Sustainability Defined psychic? Well, no… but we do know what you’re wondering - what is carbon pricing and can it be a viable solution to mitigate our global GHG emissions? Fear not Definers, we’ve got you covered. In today’s episode, we dive into how different carbon pricing systems, like emissions trading systems (ETS) and carbon taxes, function in global economies. A price on carbon can help address the fact that climate impacts are often endured by people who are neither the producer nor the consumer of an activity that exacerbates climate change – what economists dub “negative externalities.” We also discuss existing applications and different design features of carbon pricing policies, leaving you delightfully informed on the topic.
    Our expert guest, Dr. Marc Hafstead, a Fellow at Resources for the Future (RFF) and Director of their Carbon Pricing Initiative, joins us to chat about the nuances of carbon pricing policies and the many tools RFF has developed to help progress them. We hope Definers can take away their own perspective of carbon pricing and its role in fighting climate change.

    Atypical Ep 2: Sustainability Defined Staff (Matt Arends and Amelia Kovacs)

    Atypical Ep 2: Sustainability Defined Staff (Matt Arends and Amelia Kovacs)

    It’s not just Jay and Scott behind Sustainability Defined. We have volunteers and paid staff that help us with research, social media, etc. Today for an atypical episode we want to highlight a couple staff members, one who has played a critical role for years and is leaving the podcast for an exciting opportunity in market garden farming, and another who is just joining the team after being a devoted listener and studying and working in sustainability. The outgoing staff member is Matt Arends. If you’ve ever engaged with our social media or been impressed with our graphics on there, the kudos go to Matt. He is leaving his part-time position with the podcast so he can focus on Wild Roots Acres & Farm (@wildrootsacres_mn) on Instagram. We’ll hear about his sustainability journey and about his business including the geothermal greenhouses he is building. The incoming staff member is Amelia Kovacs. We needed someone with a lot of energy who knows sustainability so they could help us with research, social media, and a variety of other tasks. Boy did we luck out with Amelia. You’ll hear her passion as well as her knowledge in sustainability as she talks about her current work in the field and what she’s learned from the podcast. We hope you enjoy hearing from the folks behind the scenes!

    Ep 60: Sustainable Landscaping with Dr. Sharon Hall (Arizona State University)

    Ep 60: Sustainable Landscaping with Dr. Sharon Hall (Arizona State University)

    Many Definers may enjoy laying in a lush, green lawn staring up at a blue sky while listening to the latest Sustainability Defined episode. We love that, but it's also important to think about how we got those landscapes and how we can maintain them more sustainably. This episode considers the footprint of all kinds of man-made and maintained landscapes, particularly the around 50 million acres of lawn in the United States. You'll hear about the many impacts of landscaping our environment, including the crazy amount of air pollution that comes from gas powered equipment, as well as techniques you can use to maintain a landscape you enjoy with less impact on the environment. Our expert guest, Dr. Sharon Hall, ecosystem ecologist and professor at the School of Life Sciences at Arizona State University, provides insights from her research on how humans interact with the residential landscape and from her own landscaping experience. Let's put on some gardening gloves as we get our hands dirty diving into sustainable landscaping.
