  • Producer/Host: Meredith DeFrancesco

    Program Topic: Update from Standing Rock; Solidarity Event in Bangor; Reaction to Trump EPA Nominee

    Key Discussion Points:

    1) Today we hear an update from Standing Rock where Water Protector camps reorganize, as the Army Corp of Engineers rules against an easement for the Dakota Access Pipeline to cross under the Missouri River until an Environmental Impact Statement can assess alternative routes.
    2) We also look at Trump’s nomination to head the EPA, Oklahoma State Attorney General , Scott Pruitt. Pruitt is known for his pro oil, gas and coal industry stances and his opposition to policies aimed at addressing air and water pollution and climate change.
    3) We also hear from some voices from the Solidarity Rally with Standing Rock at the Penobscot River Waterfront in Bangor on December 5th.

    Guests:
    A) Kandi Mossett, Indigenous Environmental Network

    Holiday season can be lots of fun, and the Internet is becoming a great way to shop. Lots of toys these days connect to the Internet which can be lots of fun – or lots of trouble. As we peruse out choices for holiday gifts this year, especially electronic ones, it is probably wise to hold back a bit on impulse buying and think about the implications of some of the gee whiz gifts available these days.
