Climate Justice Forum: Melanie Martin 9-7-15


The Monday, September 7, 2015 Climate Justice Forum radio program hosted by Wild Idaho Rising Tide (WIRT) gratefully welcomes Melanie Martin, a climate activist working with Peaceful Uprising and Utah Tar Sands Resistance on various campaigns but most notably grassroots opposition to Utah tar sands development over the last five years.  In this interview recorded in Salt Lake City, Melanie shares frontline updates about recent protests, including an ongoing, on-site vigil, and the potential local and Colorado River watershed impacts of the emerging tar sands mine in the Book Cliffs of eastern Utah.  Broadcast on progressive, volunteer, community station KRFP Radio Free Moscow every Monday between 7:30 and 9:30 pm PDT, live at 90.3 FM and online, the show covers continent-wide climate activism and community opposition to dirty energy projects, thanks to the generous, anonymous listener who adopted program host Helen Yost as her KRFP DJ.
