Climate Justice Forum: GTN Xpress Lead Hearing Speakers, Maine Derailment Spill, California Train Emissions Rule, Denied LNG Rail Permit, Native Healing Center & Allied Support 5-3-23

The Wednesday, May 3, 2023, Climate Justice Forum radio program, produced by regional, climate activists collective Wild Idaho Rising Tide (WIRT), features lead speakers at the February 13 People’s Hearing to Stop GTN Xpress, hosted by a Northwest coalition to gather testimony from community members threatened by Gas Transmission Northwest (GTN) pipeline expansion.  We also share news, music, and reflections on a Maine derailment cleanup that spilled fuel, California first-in-nation diesel locomotive emissions rules, federal rejection of a liquefied natural gas train permit, and opportunities to support and participate in allied fundraising and events like Idaho Gives, the fiftieth annual Moscow Renaissance Fair, and a First Nation healing center spring work camp.  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.
