    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.

    A) Kandi Mossett, Indigenous Environmental Network
    B ) Bob Deans, Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) www.nrdc.org
    C) Kathy Paul, Penobscot elder, rally organizer, Sunlight Media Collective
    D) Hope, Bangor resident
    E) Barbra Moore, Penobscot Nation
