Wed
Wed, Mar 24, 2021 10:00 AM - Wed, Mar 24, 2021 11:45 AM @ https://www.postcarbon.org/events/overcoming-political-polarization/

In this webinar, we’ll examine political polarization and how to overcome it. We recognize that the “us vs. them” posture in American political life is making it hard to achieve the cooperation needed to address our most pressing social and environmental problems. We are hoping to explore two drivers of polarization: (1) the neurological and psychological characteristics of individuals that promote tribalism, and (2) the cultural constructs and social institutions that reinforce personal tendencies toward “us vs. them” thinking. Given our brains and the world we inhabit, how do we go about dismantling (or at least chipping away at) polarization so that people can act more collaboratively?

Join us for this free conversation on March 24th with Kim Doell, John Wood, Jr., and Lee Drutman about how to bridge seemingly impossible divides to work collaboratively on social and environmental issues.

A minimum donation of $25 will give you access to our live, online event as well as a recording of the event as soon as it’s available.

Can’t make it to the live event? Donate a minimum of $25 and we’ll send you a link to the recording that you can access at any time immediately following the event.

Speaker Bios

Kim Doell is a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Psychology at New York University. Her research broadly focuses on investigating group-level processes, such as social and political identities, and how they relate to various pro-social and sustainable behaviors.

John Wood, Jr. is a former nominee for congress and a former vice-chairman of the Republican Party of Los Angeles County. A noted writer and speaker on the subjects of political and racial reconciliation John’s written work has been featured in publications including The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Examiner, and Quillette Magazine. He is a national spokesperson for the bipartisan organization Braver Angels and lives in South Los Angeles with his wife and three children.

Lee Drutman is a senior fellow in the Political Reform program at New America. He is the author of “Breaking the Two-Party Doom Loop: The Case for Multiparty Democracy in America” and “The Business of America is Lobbying”. He is also the co-host of the podcast Politics in Question, and writes for the New York Times, Vox, and FiveThirtyEight, among other outlets.

This event is free to attend, but we hope you’ll consider a donation of $25 or more, which will also give you access to a recording of the event as soon as it’s available. Funds raised from the event will support Post Carbon Institute’s efforts to inspire, educate, and support many more people to respond with urgency and boldness to the defining challenges of our time.

Thu, Mar 18, 2021 3:00 PM - Thu, Mar 18, 2021 4:30 PM @ https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_mZu1wvKTSWSZO8RrkB60RA

In the last few years, two Indigenous-led movements have been boldly leading a way forward for tribal communities and climate justice by reclaiming sovereignty rooted in ancestral knowledge. Both of these movements radically shift the colonial system embedded in the DNA of the United States (and Canada), and how we relate to the land, water and spirit of Turtle Island. With this webinar we will share the power of the Rights of Nature and LandBack movements from those leading the way, and explore the potential for collaboration or connection between them.

To register:
We have opened registration to 500 people live on Zoom with Q&A and special opportunities to get involved. Use this link to register today: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_mZu1wvKTSWSZO8RrkB60RA

Quotes and Bios from panelists:
“For the Indigenous people of Turtle Island and around the world, the Rights of Nature has been a way to reclaim our sovereignty and exercise our traditional responsibilities to our Mother, the Earth. In passing Rights of Nature into tribal law, the Ponca also reclaimed our original treaty boundaries, which the US government has whittled away with every broken promise and Treaty they’ve ever signed with tribal nations.” -Casey Camp Horinek, Ponca tribe of Oklahoma, Ponca Environmental Ambassador and Movement Rights founding Board chair. BIO: https://www.movementrights.org/board/

“When we say ‘Land Back’ we aren’t asking for just the ground, or for a piece of paper that allows us to tear up and pollute the earth. We want the system that is land to be alive so that it can perpetuate itself, and perpetuate us as an extension of itself. That’s what we want back: our place in keeping land alive and spiritually connected.” -Krystal Two Bulls, Northern Cheyenne/Oglala Lakota, NDN Collective LandBack Director. BIO: https://ndncollective.org/people/krystal-two-bulls/

“They decided, we’ll just go over to Standing Rock, those Indians ain’t going to do nothing. Well, we did. We have never ceded this land. If Dakota Access Pipeline can go through and claim eminent domain on landowners and Native peoples on their own land, then we as sovereign nations can then declare eminent domain on our own aboriginal homeland,” – Joye Braun Wanbli Wiyan Ka’win or Eagle Feather Woman, Cheyenne River Sioux, Community Organizer, Indigenous Environmental Network. BIO:https://www.facebook.com/Indigenousrisingmedia/posts/tomorrow-join-iens-joye-braun-for-the-be-the-revolution-summit-online-webinar-fo/3226055450744592/

“The Ohlone people never lost their connection to this land. The land gives us everything that we need in order to survive. That’s how people lived for thousands of years on our land and other Indigenous people’s land. You work with the land so that it can continue to provide, but that you honor that relationship by not taking too much. Through a voluntary land tax and donations from land owners, this organization is working to create an alternative land base and cultural site for Indigenous people in California’s East Bay.” -Corrina Gould, chair and spokesperson for the Confederated Villages of Lisjan Ohlone.

BIO: Corrina was born and raised in Oakland, CA, the village of Huichin. A mother of three and grandmother of four, Corrina is the Co-Founder and Lead Organizer for Indian People Organizing for Change, a small Native run organization that works on Indigenous people issues and sponsored annual Shellmound Peace Walks from 2005 to 2009. These walks brought about education and awareness of the desecration of sacred sites in the greater Bay Area. As a tribal leader, she has continued to fight for the protection of the Shellmounds, uphold her nation’s inherent right to sovereignty, and stand in solidarity with her Indigenous relatives to protect our sacred waters, mountains, and lands all over the world. Her life’s work has led to the creation of Sogorea Te’ Land Trust, a women-led organization within the urban setting of her ancestral territory of the Bay Area. Sogorea Te’ Land Trust works to return Indigenous land to Indigenous people. Based on an understanding that Oakland is home to many peoples that have been oppressed and marginalized, Sogorea Te works to create a thriving community that lives in relation to the land. Through the practices of rematriation, cultural revitalization, and land restoration, the Land Trust calls on native and non-native peoples to heal and transform legacies of colonization, genocide, and to do the work our ancestors and future generations are calling us to do.

“We’re the original stewards of the land. Now we’re returned.” -Tom Little Bear Nason, chairman of the Esselen tribe of Monterey county, California.

Bio: Tom Little Bear is the Tribal Chairman of the Esselen Tribe of Monterey County and the Tribe has recently received 1200 acres off acred lands located in their aboriginal homelands of Big Sur in Monterey County. The land is crucial to the tribe because the Tribe has been landless for over 250 years since the colonization of Spanish Missionaries who ripped all of the Esselen Tribal members from their ancient homelands and villages in 1770s. Leaving thee tribe without a place to call their own. This land holds a sacred mountain called “Pico Blanco” or “Pixchi” in Esselen. This is the center of the Esselen’s universe and holds the creation story for the tribe. Coyote, Humming Bird and the Eagle created the Esselen World as they have known it for countless generations. Little Bear is an elder and has been a land and water protector since he was chosen at the age of 8 to become the leader and to carry on the tribes long tradition of protecting sacred lands of the Native Americans. Little Bear has defended dozens of government projects to dam up rivers and to level off mountain tops for telescopes and towers. Most recently the tribe under his leadership worked to remove the largest Dam in California state history on the Carmel River in Monterey County. This was a monumental task that has spawned numerous other dam removal projects on tribal lands in California, Oregon and Washington States. He is currently working on further protections of sacred lands, forests wildlife and rivers within their tribal territory and defending Mother Earth.

Wed, Mar 17, 2021 6:00 PM - Wed, Mar 17, 2021 8:00 PM @ The Jazz Kitchen

Every track on her self-titled debut, is steeped in the love and the passion she has for the genre. It’s almost a religious reverence, which makes perfect sense considering she’s a preacher’s daughter who grew up singing gospel in church. “Gospel and blues have always been so closely related,” she opines. “It’s like there’s a fork in the musical road, one way it’s gospel and the other is the blues. I was exposed to Koko Taylor when I was eight years old, and right then I knew which road I was going to take.” But her precision is by no means cut and dried or predictable; she is methodical, if not hypnotic, weaving a spell across seven songs that reflect the multi- decade journey it’s taken for her to get here as much as the destination itself. From the way the very first notes drop you right into the delta, through excursions that go from back country to steamy, inner-city grooves and all the way through to New Orleans-inspired horns that wind the album down, she is in firm command of every aspect of the songwriting process. “Everything took a big turn when I stopped writing on guitar and started singing the melodies in my head,” she relates, ” even the guitar riffs and the solos. Then Paul (longtime collaborator, guitarist/singer Paul Holdman) translates it all and embellishes it with his own nuances—when we put it together like that, the magic happens.” It is magic, but it’s no illusion. Rebekah Meldrum is a master magician who’s just beginning to reveal her bag of tricks.

At the start of this pandemic when all things shut down including musical concerts, the Musicians of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra began creating music and sharing their talents through videos online. Clarinetist Trina Gross asked four friends from the orchestra to play a short sampling of the Larghetto from the Mozart Quintet for Clarinet and String Quartet for a multitrack video that was brilliantly made by violinist Jennifer Farquhar. She named us “QuaranTrina.” As the warmer months allowed, we planned concerts and performed in many neighborhoods bringing live music to friends and neighbors.

We come together once again to play wonderful quintets for clarinet and string quartet by Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, Johannes Brahms and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart featuring Butler faculty clarinetist Trina Gross with special guests, Jennifer Farquhar and Lisa Scott, violins; Amy Kniffen, viola; and Perry Scott, cello.

Wed, Mar 10, 2021 7:00 PM - Wed, Mar 10, 2021 8:30 PM @ https://www.postcarbon.org/events/power-forum/

The focus of this forum will be on Montgomery County, Maryland, but it is applicable to any large county or region.  As Montgomery County concludes the drafting of its Climate Action Plan after nearly a year and a half of work with citizen advisors, consultants, and its own staff, we are faced with the daunting goals we have set: 80% reduction in our carbon emissions by 2027, and 100% by 2035.  How will we get there?  What are the limits of renewable energy?  Are we addressing the root causes?

Climate change is part of a larger crisis, often labeled “overshoot,” and solar and wind power by themselves won’t extricate us from that dilemma.  The ability of renewables to fully replace fossil fuels has been oversold. If that is the case, what are our alternatives?

Beginning in 2003 with The Party’s Over: Oil, War and the Fate of Industrial Societies, one of the first full-length analyses of peak oil, Richard Heinberg has written numerous books on topics examining the implications of our modern society’s dependence on fossil fuels, and what may come next as the availability of cheap fossil fuels begins to decline. In addition to his forthcoming book, his 2016 book Our Renewable Future: Laying the Path for One Hundred Percent Clean Energy will be pertinent to the evening’s discussion on March 10.

Please register to join us for an evening of provocative analysis and discussion:
