The Exchange 11.17.23: The Sierra Club on the Summit Carbon Capture Pipeline; A Safety Corridor just outside of Sioux City; The Sioux City Symphony presents Brahms and Amy Beach
This week on The Exchange we talk with the Sierra Club about the possibility that a carbon capture pipeline could eventually run through Iowa. The Iowa Utilities Board just last week finished eight weeks of testimony for and against the Summit Carbon Solutions Pipeline. I spoke with Jess Mazour of the Sierra Club about the possible environment effects of the pipeline
We also talk with researcher and author Adia Harvey Wingfield about the "Gray Areas" that allow for racism in the workplace and how we can stop it. She says Diversity, Equity and Inclusion efforts can sometimes backfire and cause resentment.
Concerns about the future of the economy continue to effect our ability to invest for the future and find and keep affordable housing. In order to get some insight on the workings of the economy, I spoke with author Majorie Kelly. In her new book, "Wealth Supremacy" Kelly talks about how our capitalistic society is taking economic power out of our communities and causing multiple crises.
A stretch of Highway 20 from Moville to Lawton, just outside of Sioux City, is one of the most dangerous in the state. The Iowa Department of Transportation has designated the area as a "saftety corridor" to encourage people to slow down. I spoke with Iowa DOT maintenance engineer BEN Hucker about the many things we can do to stay safe on the Iowa's roadways.
We also talk with Ryan Haskins of the Sioux City Symphony about Saturday night's event, which includes the works of Amy Beach and a Brahms double concerto.
