"And two of his nominees to lead his environmental agenda appear to support that promise. Michael Regan would be the first black man to lead the Environmental Protection Agency. If confirmed by the Senate, and New Mexico. Congresswoman Deb Holland is Biden's pick for the Interior Department. She would be the first Native American to serve as a Cabinet secretary. NPR's Nathan Rott reports. Holland's nomination is especially symbolic. The Department of the Interior is a massive agency responsible for about 1/5 of all the land in the United States. It deals with natural resource is and wildlife recreation in national parks, But it's also responsible for the relationship between the federal government and the people. Those lands were taken from There are a number of scholars who have done really great work to show how the creation of national parts was predicated on the removal of Native peoples. Katrina Phillips is a history professor at McAllister College in Minnesota, and she's a member of the Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior, Ojibwe. She says. It's fair to say that for most of its history, the Interior Department has been used as a tool to oppress indigenous people in the U. S. Which is why, she says she's still in shock that Deb Holland, a member of the Laguna Pueblo in New Mexico. Has been nominated to lead it to have someone who understands this history and indigenous sovereignty and land rights and treaty rights. Is just I mean, I'm just I'm so happy right now. It's just hard to believe that this nomination came through a large coalition of Native American tribes, along with environmental groups and progressive leaders pushed for Holland to get the post. Not just because of the symbolism but because of her experience. She's a two term congresswoman who served on a committee with oversight of interior, and she comes from New Mexico, a fossil fuel dependent state that is trying to transition to renewable energies. In an interview with NPR before her nomination, Holland made clear she'd want the country as a whole to try to do the same. Climate change is the challenge of our lifetime, and it's imperative that we invested an equitable renewable energy economy. President elect Joe Biden has said he wants the country to be carbon neutral by the year 2050. And his interior secretary, Holland would have a big role in shaping that future. Roughly one quarter of all greenhouse gas emissions in the U. S come from public lands. She also said she'd restore trust with the interior 70,000. Some employees prioritize conserving 30% of all U. S land in water and undo some of the damage that this Trump administration has done to our environment.

Well, sort of. City officials announced yesterday that the stretch of first Street between Grand and Hope has been repaid with what's called recycled plastic asphalt. KCRW's Kelly Wells has the breakdown. Normally when repairing city streets. Old asphalt is ripped up and shipped out and the new asphalt is shipped in and paved. This stuff is made by ripping up the old asphalt, crushing it and mixing it with plastics on site and laying it right back down. It also means the road is closed for hours instead of days or weeks. Good news for the planet. Since the recycled plastic asphalt uses about 150,000 plastic water bottles per lane mile. That means creating less virgin petroleum, less waste and less pollution from transporting materials. It's also good news for our pocketbooks, since the roads are built to last five times longer than regular asphalt cutting repaving costs in half recycled plastic isn't being used to fill Ella potholes for now, But if the re paved road in downtown L a performs, there could be a lot more on the way.

But they're precluded from getting them because of limited resource is Be kind of like your dentist saying, Yeah, you need to get that cavity filled. But we've only got so many fillings so get in line and the line for monarchs is long. The Fish and Wildlife Service says 161 other species have priority nationally. Which makes today's announcement bittersweet for people like Serena Jepson. On one hand, I'm really happy to see that while they service recognizes that monarchs are threatened with extinction on the other, they're not doing much about it. Jepson is with the Tzar See Center for Invertebrate conservation, which helps count monarch populations every year, and the trend line, she says, is alarming. I really don't think that monarchs can wait indefinitely for protection. As recently as the 19 nineties, there were millions of monarch butterflies fluttering through backyards and across fields in the U. S. You've probably seen them and they're recognizable Rust Orange wings, But the eastern population of monarch butterflies has declined by 80% since the mid nineties, the western population which winters in Central California. Has dropped even further. Actually, just this year we're seeing potentially the collapse of the Western population.
