    The Internet of Things is rapidly becoming a part of our daily lives, not just digitally but in the things we interact with every day from cars to thermostats. But just what is The Internet of Things and what potential promise – and problems – does it offer? Listen up.

    We check in with Ron Huber, Executive Director of Friends of Penobscot Bay, for an update on that group’s efforts to determine what was left behind on the shoreline near GAC chemical in Searsport, by generations of industry there. We also talk with DEP spokesperson Jessamine Logan for a response to Huber’s allegations that a FOAA records request to the agency did not yield requested phone records.

    The US Army Corps of Engineers and Maine DOT are proposing a dredging project in Searsport Harbor that would result in nearly a million cubic yards of materials being dumped in Penobscot Bay near Islesboro. The project would deepen and widen the shipping channel. Supporters say that would improve commerce in the port, but opponents say the economic and environmental risks far outweigh any potential benefits.

    Joining me in the studio today are Joel Pitcher of the Maine Lobstering Union, and attorney Kim Tucker. She represents the Maine Lobstering Union, Pemaquid Muscle Farm, and the Sierra Club of Maine as well as some individual members of the Zone D lobster council. The program also features excerpts from an interview with Dr. Kevin Yeager- an independent scientist who previously worked on the Holtrachem/Mallinkrodt mercury case in the federal court system. He is the author of a new report that raises serious concerns about the plan– among them the possibility that inert mercury in the sediment may be converted to a more toxic form and make its way into the food chain in Penobscot Bay. He also criticizes the methology the Army Corps used in their sediment sampling.
