The Wednesday, November 17, 2021, Climate Justice Forum radio program, produced by regional, climate activist collective Wild Idaho Rising Tide (WIRT), features a conversation between Emma Rae Lierley and Scott Parkin of Rainforest Action Network, about indigenous- and youth-led marches and empty world leader pledges to halt deforestation and climate crises at the United Nations COP26 “greenwash trade show” in Scotland.  We also share news and reflections about a rare extended lunar eclipse, a film screening and discussion about a youth climate lawsuit against the U.S. government, a Spokane train blockader’s dismissed charges and climate necessity defense trial, a barge-train collision and diesel and coal spill into the Mississippi River, British Columbia and Washington storm flooding, evacuations, and road and rail disruptions and derailments, and a First Nation eviction of gas pipeline construction crews.  Broadcast for almost ten years on progressive, volunteer, community station KRFP Radio Free Moscow, every Wednesday between 1:30 and 3 pm Pacific time, on-air at 90.3 FM and online, the show describes continent-wide, grassroots, frontline resistance to fossil fuel projects, the root causes of climate change, thanks to generous, anonymous listeners who adopted program host Helen Yost as their KRFP DJ.
