Climate Justice Forum: Northwest Gas Pipeline Expansion & Resistance, Idaho Challenges of Oil & Gas Waste Well & Forced Leasing, Washington Silicon Smelter Siting Opposition 8-24-22


The Wednesday, August 24, 2022, Climate Justice Forum radio program, produced by regional, climate activist collective Wild Idaho Rising Tide (WIRT), features news, music, and reflections about Canadian Keystone XL company plans to expand fracked gas pipeline volumes and pump stations across north Idaho and the Northwest and extensive citizen and state government rejection of this scheme through comments and petitions.  We also discuss southwest Idaho legal challenges of a proposed oil and gas waste injection well and forced gas well leasing, and ongoing resistance to siting of a Newport, Washington, silicon smelter.  Broadcast for 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.
