Biden Nominates First Native American to Lead National Parks Service

"Park Service could be led by a native American. NPR's Nathan Rott reports. The Biden administration has nominated Charles Sam's a member of the Confederated Tribes of the U. Mattila Indian Reservation in the Pacific Northwest. The National Park Service hasn't had a full time director since the Obama administration. Biden's nomination of Charles Sam's who's worked on conservation issues for decades could soon change that. The nomination comes at a crucial time for the park service. Despite some recent injections of funding, the park system is running a massive deferred maintenance deficit. At the same time, it's struggling with overcrowding and some of its most popular parks. A rapidly changing climate and long standing criticism for a lack of diversity within its ranks. The nomination of Sam's is subject to Senate confirmation. Nathan

"Speech from both 2020 political conventions online anytime at C span dot or Martin is here today because on August 28 57 anniversary of the march on Washington, we're going back to Washington Martin. That's where your father stood in the shadows of the Lincoln Memorial and said, I have a dream. Where we going back this August 28 to restore and re commit that dream that being Al Sharpton announcing a march coming back to Washington in August, and it is tomorrow to discuss it. Dr. Christopher Rodriguez, DC Homeland Security and emergency management. Agency official, Dr Rodriguez. Good morning. We don't have me. Okay, He's coming. He will be coming up with us. We were talking about this, Vince. I don't know if we talked about it on the air yesterday or off the air works. They usually expect about 100,000 people to come to this march on Washington this year. They're expecting about 50,000. So about half of what they normally would have What I found Interesting is the questions about social distancing. And the questions about whether people are going to be wearing masks, etcetera, and it turns out that they're going. The organizers of the of the march have said that they were going to ask everyone to please wear masks, but the police have said that they will not be enforcing. The wearing of masks, and I thought All of that was was very interesting because people are gonna look at this again and say I can't go to church or I can't eat endures, or I can't do whatever fill in the blank. But these guys are going to be able to have this march will look where they will be in close quarters with each other and the same rules were not going to be enforced on them. And I sadly think that's goingto overshadow the message normally associated with the March on Washington. Yeah, I mean, You know, the Corona virus rules are going to be ignored. One by the city in one of the rules is that you're supposed to quarantine for 14 days if you come from one of the targeted areas in the mayor's order. Two of you arrive in Washington, D C. From almost any state in the country. There are 30 states on Mayor Muriel Bowser's left 30. And if you're right from any of them, you're supposed to quarantine for 14 days before you engage with anybody in Washington, D C. It's not gonna happen tomorrow. Not that I can tell. We can ask we've got we've got the head of homeland security with us now, Dr Christopher Rodriguez, who joins us on the phone. Good morning, Dr Reverie us. Good morning. Thank you for having me. We were just talking about how some people may look at this because they're going to see I think that they said they're expecting about 50,000, as opposed to 100,000 marchers about 50,000, who will not be social distancing will not be quarantining a zipper. The mayor's orders. And masks are encouraged and required by the National Park Service. But they said, we're not going to force it. And I think that people noticing that is going to override and for a lot of people, the actual message of the march. Why is this going to be allowed? But yet some guy going into you know, a grocery store has to wear a mask. I appreciate the question and you know, since the march on Washington was announced, I think there's a little over two months ago, the city and the park police and we've been in constant contact with the organizer from National Action Network. We know that they've been very cooperative and we've been speaking with them sometimes multiple kinds of weak and so one of the things that we talked to them about was making sure that no buses were coming from any of the hot spots across the country. And they did agree to that. Another thing that we want to make sure that people who come to the march as is their constitutional right to do so. Um, I understand that they need to preregister. There's only one entrance, which is on 17th Street. The organizer's will have masks and there will be masked, wearing required to enter the area. There will also be temperature checks that were taken. For the festivities closer to the Lincoln Memorial on for the seated guests. They will be social distance and there will be a staff throughout the crowd, making sure that people stay social distance so we are taking precautions as best we can. Toe understand to realize Look, we're in the middle of a global pandemic, but we also recognize that people have the right under the constitution to exercise their First Amendment rights. My question is, why were the wire things optional, though that have nothing to do with First Amendment expression like mask wearing like in the district Right now? It's required that if you're outdoors in the district, you have to wear a mask. Why not? Why isn't that the case with this march? As I said, the we've talked to the organizers right. No one will be allowed to enter the events through 17th Street, which is the primary entrance and probably see there's fencing around the area. Yes, unless they're wearing a mask. And if you don't have 11 will be provided to you by the event organizers and you will get temperature checks. Sure, but Mike Mike litters the sorry but I just I just want to mention something of the National Park Service has said that the master will be required but not enforced. I'm sorry. You think they said they will not require nor enforce the masks. Although you're telling us that the entrance that master will be handed out of people don't have them but still a the actual wearing of the mask itself, not enforced tomorrow, correct. Right, And this is and this is this is the challenge right? And of course, this is taking place on federal lands on DH. The Park Service is responsible for that. But I think it's also important to note as I think your comments suggests. There's also a level of individual and personal responsibility here. Um and onion. Mayor Bowser has been talking at least for the last couple of months about the march to say that You know, Look, people need to do what's right. They need to remember that they're Corbett is not gone. Andi need to do everything they can. If they do come to the march to make sure that they're safe and they're secure. So you decided social distancing was going to be enforced. How do you enforce social distancing in a march? Well, this again was part of our conversations with the National Action Network and even organizer's. They did commit to having staff in the crowd, making sure that people are again as I mentioned being safe and practicing social distancing to the greatest extent possible. I hate to ask this, but just because half of DC is boarded up still is ru you confident in the safety of tomorrow's event? The Metropolitan Police Department. Homeland Security, Mercy Management fired immobilized for for this event and also look I mean, as you know, we've been hosting the Republican National Convention for the last week, and this is the last night. Of that convention, and so we've been monitoring events throughout the district..

I'm talking about nine eleven. You remember when President Bush President Bush was at that school. Okay. He was at Emma, Booker Elementary. School. And basically he was there to talk about his plans for education reform right and he's sitting there he's reading a book. Do you remember the name of the book? He was reading this book. I believe. It was a second grade class if I'm. Not. Mistaken. It was the pet goat. He was reading the pet goat and as the story went he was. Originally informed very discreetly. About. The first plane, the first plane. That crashed into one trade center. and. You had one of his staff tell it was probably just a small propeller plane. So he continued reading and then the students read the pet goat well. It was then White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card that interrupted the president lean down whispered in his ear. A second plane hit the second tower. America is under attack and I couldn't help but flashback to that, and then there was all the caterwauling, all of the media misinterpretation of. What followed because if if you flash back to that day. You remember. President Bush sat there. With. This look stunned disbelief horror on his face and who could blame Him Wall Street Journal described it as the president was trying to keep under tight control. But despite the president's efforts, the students knew that something was. Dramatically drastically. Wrong. They later said that the president's face became red and serious and his expression was flabbergasted. That's pretty good word for a second grader flabbergasted shocked. And horrified. He then got a cue card from his press secretary Ari Fleischer Ari. Fleischer. That said, don't say anything yet. But I couldn't help but just reflect on that yesterday president trump was doing that presser and was summarily and quickly escorted out of that white. That White House briefing. What happened? Well apparently, that was a security measure. But he quickly returned. To tell reporters there was a shooting outside of the White House and of course, Secret Service doing their jobs and getting him into a safe place. Secret Service just last night provided the details of the shooting in a tweet saying that a fifty one year old male allegedly approach a uniform division officer this according to a piece out of Fox News who was standing at his post on the corner of Seventeenth Street and Pennsylvania Avenue near the white. House, the man told the agent he had a weapon and while he approached took off in a sprint. And in a drawing motion. I might add a threatening motion withdrew an object from his clothing. The suspect according to the statement from the Secret Service? The suspect then crouched into a shooter stance as if about to fire weapon that point the agent fired his weapon and struck the subject in the torso, no additional details were provided on that. Once. Again, some scary moments yesterday was just me or did you have that horrific flashback? To that horrific.

Ellis Island is just about a quarter mile from liberty state park in Jersey city and for years New Jersey officials have wanted to create a pedestrian walkway to the island but there's been long standing opposition from the New York side joining us for more on this debate is NJ advance media reporter rob Jennings rob good morning. morning ritual good I'm not a quarter mile that seems like a nice little stroll on a nice day so what's your argument against this pedestrian walkway what is a fascinating backstory here basically in nineteen eighty six as part of the renovation of liberty island private funds were used to build a bridge between Jersey city on the island it's about fourteen hundred feet about then five years later there was a proposal to build a permanent bridge that pedestrians could walk across Congress allocated fifteen million dollars for it New Jersey was very much in favor of it there was a projection that could result in about a hundred fifteen thousand people you're walking over from Jersey city. New York was opposed to it then governor Mario Cuomo whose parents immigrated from Italy and came through Ellis Island he said he had objections to it a lot of other historians opposed it in the end nineteen ninety five the project when away as Congress eliminated the funding however possibly starting in twenty twenty four there may be a discussion about building a new bridge to replace the ones been there for nearly forty years and as for that discussion jerseys marriage proposing to help perhaps revisit that discussion is there a bridge already between Jersey city in Ellis Island. yes there is a a bridge there right now built in nineteen eighty six again pay for by private funds it's only open to official vehicles and the position of the National Park Service has been that you know we don't want to extremes to use it we have security considerations after nine eleven so if you go to liberty state park you can see cars going you know back and forth but you're not gonna see a pedestrians it's strictly for people on official business or is that the only way to get to Ellis Island right now is by ferry yes right now there's ferry operator that has the contract to go there and as part of that you also get to go to the New York liberty island of the statue of liberty they're all part of the same national park and the National Park Service points out that a number of good amount of the proceeds from the other concessions at on the islands and also for the ferry boat going to the upkeep and maintenance of these islands and are some historians against this. well that's been one of the big parts of the argument I mean that the twelve million immigrants that arrived at Ellis Island all came by boat and so the organ has been that for tourists to kind of appreciate Ellis Island they should try to replicate that experience that the counter argument to that is that you know people arrived at Ellis Island the arrived and those that were not especially comfortable and certainly the ferry that takes you there is a much different experience today it's nice and it's comfortable and you know it hi I see I see both sides of the organ on that one you what is the park service so what is their stance on it. they want to keep it as it is they oppose allowing pedestrian access they they do site the the security issue I mean certainly if you were to have a bridge from liberty state park in Jersey city to have to build a significant screen area but they also talk about the revenues and proceeds they get from the concessions the ferry boat operator the food concession here as well that helps them you know restore some of the the things are Ellis Island and maintain it for the public and report back in the nineties and you you said about one hundred fifteen thousand people would use the bridge if they have the option so do you think that it's still popular idea. well that's certainly the estimate and the Jersey city mayor Stephen for said that you know that he he believed to be interested in plus would also draw additional Taurus to liberty state park in his city which is something that's been a priority of the city Jersey city is very walkable and certainly this would be in addition to that I think that's what he's talking about but the the opposition to this from the National Park Service is is you know significant not to mention that there was this is about a fifteen million dollar project proposed back in the early nineties say would clearly be a lot more expensive rob Jennings is a reporter for NJ advance media rob thanks so much for joining us thanks for me Richard..

"The National Park Service has a deferred maintenance stock was up eleven point six billion dollars, which is over four times his annual operating budget. So clearly they have a problem with how these parks are being managed. I think public private partnerships would be a great way help address that problem. All right. So who's pushing back against this idea and keeping it from happening question. I think a lot of people just assume that because our national. The parks are managed eventually that. That's the way that it needs to happen. And I don't think these people have bad intentions. I think they care for the parks just as much as you or I do, but I think what they don't recognize. But with the current situation, our national parks are less susceptible to things like the current government shutdown, which we're not sure when it will end, or when people will be able to return to their jobs in the park known in fact, in this case, most of those park employees who are not doing their jobs right now. Because the you know, the money is an authorized will eventually get paid for having had several weeks off not doing their jobs, but they'll still get paychecks for them. Just a bit later than usual. Non-expert on what's going to happen, exactly financially? When the that I do know that in places like Yellowstone, their private is your says that Joe mobile tour, and they've actually stepped in their pain from National Park Service employees hold room, the roads. So they can continue to run their snowmobile tours. I think that's a really cool example. There's all these families that have planned their threats often, months and months out private companies and stuff in and clean the bathroom. Keep the roads open families wouldn't be able to enjoy their vacation. I laughed only because it sounds like when the government is incapable of getting the job done if if it's possible to do it legally, private sector companies will actually step up and get it done without being told. They have to do it just saying this needs to get done. So we're going to get a done. That's right. These companies really rely on the parking open. That's where they get a lot of their revenue. A lot of cases private businesses actually complement the amenities that are offered in national park. Not even better reason for the National Park Service to consider working with these companies, find more responsible ways to manage the parks that make them less resilient to political discussion. The ones doing the job of a a dose, and you know, somebody who guides people around the park or gives lectures on the scenic wonders of national parks. I can't think of a good reason why that could job couldn't. Be done just as well by somebody in the private sector paid for by the visitors, of course, as it's done by somebody who's on the federal payroll. I don't think it really matters where they draw their paycheck from or am I wrong about I think you're right that we could certainly find people with those skills. People who are qualified to fill those roles and private companies would probably step up and provide those services and flake. I've described that's already happening here with the government shutdown. I think the question is do we want our the funding for those jobs to be dependent on political discussions in Washington? Or do we want the funding for the job to be tied to entry fees for the people who are actually entering those parks unionist services? And I think that tying USA parks more closely to fees is a good way to make sure that the people who are enjoying our parks are hoping paper there whether maintenance and further conservation because when I walk into a private museum, and my wife, and I like museums you walk around. And if there's some people there to help you understand what you're looking at those people are paid privately, but they know the. Subject matter. Well, if that's the kind of job they're doing I don't see any reason why couldn't be done by done by somebody on the private payroll instead of the public payroll, and in fact, you could more closely tie. What does it cost to provide this guide service? Okay. That's what we charge people forgetting that guide service or we included out of their entrance fees. I could see that.

That's when president Kennedy challenged Americans to beat the Soviet Union to the moon in twenty twelve Maria launched her big mission to come up with estimates of how much flooding could be expected in national parks because of climate change. It was heavy stuff. She was a university of Colorado, scientists contract by the National Park Service. She just started on this work. When New York got hammered by hurricane sandy, sandy has killed more than ninety people in ten states. Even the doc on liberty island has been washed away. The statue of liberty is off limits because the island on which it stands was damaged by. Rising floodwaters lady liberty her not even park. Rangers could get their Maria was still in her PJ's when her phone rang at home early that morning Park Rangers urgently needed her estimate of how high floodwaters had gotten at the statue of liberty. She crunched the numbers in about an hour and got her estimate to park managers, but she felt park should have had that kind of information long before storms hit it's really important to have that information. Wayne advance before that storm ever happens when a storms coming in talk off are scrambling to get ready for the storm. Right. So they can't sit on a phone call. We scientists. It took a long.

"park service" Discussed on Reveal

"For investigative reporting in PR X. This is reveal I'm outlets, and we just heard about National Park Service officials trying to censor climate change sites. They pressured a researcher to get her. Okay. Changes to report, but she refused. Elizabeth Shogren is our science reporter who broke the story about what was happening to a scientist named Maria Kathy. Elizabeth what happened next well out after all the attention. The censorship. Got the park service published Murray as report almost exactly the way, she wrote it I'm Steven, and I felt very strongly that these leads had to remain. And so I think by staying fem on that then they decided that they were sick of fighting. The park service posted the report without any fanfare, but it didn't post the data that went with it or an idea Maria came up with to help parks and ordinary people visualize the threat, it's an interactive website. My report doesn't do it Justice. Right. You can use wets to describe it. But a pitch Paixao sweats. The website would let park service employee or anyone really see with their own eyes, which shorelines marinas monuments or archaeological digs could be underwater in twenty fifty or twenty one hundred it would be a really powerful tool for helping people. See how dangerous climate change really is to places Americans. Love their national parks Maria built it with park service, computer experts. They worked on it for years. And did you see the website when you went to Colorado to talk to Maria? Well, that was the plan. That's not exactly what happened. Here's how it went. Maria takes me to the university of Colorado boulder, we walk into the swanky building and stop at a map to find the conference room where we're supposed to meet her colleagues have three degrees geography. I felt about Maria call someone who gives her step by step instructions to the room. Well, it'll be there in a minute. Okay. She introduces me to her colleagues and starts the meeting with a surprise announcement. Demo the sea level rise viewer. So I sought permission from the national public service to have someone come here and demo it, and I was refused Murray is clearly irked, but then all of a sudden her face lights up. She turns to her colleague, leeann less tag lands the one who actually crunched the sea level rise data the up since. Do you have the date or computer up says you've you mean the data? Oh, yeah. Yeah. That's allow we could pull it off. While her Peter. We at maps we go upstairs to LIAM's cubicle and cluster around her computer, this takes a while to refresh. It's hard to navigate finally a map appears on her screen. It's national park land at North Carolina's Outer Banks. So this is Kitty Hawk on the east coast. Let's zoom in right to the tip of Cape Hatteras section of the Paulk. This is kind of what the swipe tool how the swipe till works in the viewer as land moves the cursor dry. Land becomes flooded. See the imagery without the layer. And then see with the layer the image shifts between two possible futures on Hatteras. It's the year twenty one hundred in the first future greenhouse gas. Pollution has kept growing and large areas of hetero. Siland are permanently underwater? It's compelling, isn't it? The big change. Yeah. And that's not even the storm said. Yeah. You get the right storm at right time. I mean, we're talking about twenty one hundred in those images. But really if you get the right stolen at the right time that section could be gone land swipes back could go back to them. And shows us the second future. What the island would look like if we've cur tailed our use of coal oil and other fossil fuels. The areas are dry. With this peak into the future national park could make better informed decisions about how or whether.
