Climate Justice Forum: Doug Shields 10-22-12


On the Monday, October 22, Climate Justice Forum radio program hosted by Wild Idaho Rising Tide (WIRT), we gratefully talk with former Pittsburgh City Council president Doug Shields, an active anti-fracking consultant, prior council member chief-of-staff, and litigation paralegal specializing in environmental and regulatory law (douglas.shields20@gmail.com).  Concerned about the human and environmental health impacts of hydraulic fracturing, Doug introduced and secured unanimous passage of a community rights ordinance that prohibited shale gas extraction operations in Pittsburgh, the first such ban in the nation, adopted on November 16, 2010.  (See Doug’s brief appearance on Democracy Now!, Pittsburgh Ban on Natural Gas Fracking Faces Challenge from State Authorities.)  Broadcast on KRFP Radio Free Moscow between 7:30 and 9:30 pm PDT live at 92.5 FM and online, and later aired on KMEC in Ukiah, California, the show also covers continent-wide dirty energy developments and opposition to fossil fuel extraction and transportation projects.  Listen to an edited recording of the October 22 Climate Justice Forum posted in Radio4All and adopt WIRT as your KRFP DJ.
