Date:1/31/2014

Alexandria, VA EARTH Magazine sits down with Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell to discuss the role of geoscience at the Department of the Interior, including the National Park Service, the U.S. Geological Survey and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, which oversees offshore development of both renewable and conventional energy resources.

Secretary Jewell, who began her career as a petroleum engineer, discusses the role of science in reconciling conflicts in the management of federal lands; shares how her transition from the private sector, where she was chief executive officer of Recreation Equipment, Inc., has provided insight into the management of DOI's 70,000 federal employees; and talks about the launch of the 21st Century Conservation Corps a new public-private initiative with the goal of putting more than a million young people and veterans to work on public lands and in the national parks (http://21csc.org/).
