Climate Justice Forum: Idaho Senate Hearing on Oil & Gas Rules, Relocated Newport Silicon Smelter, Washington Derailments, Ohio Railroad Lawsuit, Colorado Oil Train Opposition 3-22-23

The Wednesday, March 22, 2023, Climate Justice Forum radio program, produced by regional, climate activists collective Wild Idaho Rising Tide (WIRT), features an Idaho Senate Resources and Environment committee hearing about House Bill 120 that would change oil and gas rules on extraction spacing units, oversight commission appointments, and forced lease terms for unwilling private mineral owners.  We also share news, music, and reflections on the emerging spring season, a resisted and relocated Washington silicon smelter under construction in Tennessee, Washington derailments that killed an elk herd and spewed locomotive diesel on the oil train litigating Swinomish reservation, an Ohio attorney general lawsuit challenging Norfolk Southern hazardous train wreck impacts, and opposition by Colorado officials to proposed Utah crude oil-by-rail along the Colorado River.  Broadcast for eleven 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.
