    Producer/Host: Meredith DeFrancesco

    Issue: Environmental and Social Justice

    Program Topic: Mining Bill at BEP; Divestment from Fossil Fuels

    Key Discussion Points:
    a) Today we discuss the ongoing moves to change Maine’s mining laws,which open the state up to metallic mining, without regard for environmental consequences or adequate industry clean up responsibilities.
    b)Tomorrow the state Board of Environmental Protection (BEP) is expected to approve a new set of rules, which would send it on the legislature.

    We also look at the movement to divest colleges and universities from the fossil fuel industry, and a bill in the state legislature which would similarly divest Maine Public Employees Retirement System.

    Guests:

    A) Beth Ahern, Maine Conservation Alliance; Maine Mining Watch

    B)Sarah Linnekan, climate activist with 350 Maine
