Climate Justice Forum: Highway 95 Wetland Permits, Resistance to NW Gas Pipeline Expansion, Oil-by-Rail, Nuclear Submarines, Lithium Mines, Fossil Fuels Funders, & Carbon Capture 5-17-23

The Wednesday, May 17, 2023, Climate Justice Forum radio program, produced by regional, climate activists collective Wild Idaho Rising Tide (WIRT), features news, music, and reflections on a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers letter refuting flawed Idaho Transportation Department permit applications to destroy wetlands along a Highway 95 re-route near Moscow, a Paradise Ridge Defense Coalition co-founder memorial, Farmers Market outreach, an Idaho fact sheet, an editorial article, and a Washington D.C. protest of Northwest gas pipeline expansion, a Portland forum on the Zenith oil-by-rail terminal and nearby tank farms, a sabotaged Tacoma oil train derailment, a pre-Mother’s Day demonstration at a U.S. Navy nuclear missile submarine base in Washington, a second indigenous-led prayer blockade of Nevada lithium mine construction, the oil and gas industry carbon capture and storage scam, and four protests at fossil fuels-funding banks and a White House correspondents dinner.  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.
