EPA Attempts Appeal of Clean Power Plan and Penobscot Nation’s First Ambassador on Indigenous Peoples Day

Key Discussion Points:
a) This week, Trump’s EPA administrator, Scott Pruitt, announced his intention to repeal an Obama climate action, called the Clean Power Plan, whose goal is to significantly cut back on climate change pollutants in the power industry, most notably carbon dioxide.
b) We look at the power of polluting industries and how their influence has increased exponentially under the Trump Administration.
c) We also speak with the Penobscot Nation’s first tribal Ambassador, Maulian Dana, about her new position and about the recent growth of Maine towns observing Indigenous Peoples Day, instead of, or in conjunction with, “Columbus Day”.

David Doniger, Director of the Climate and Clean Air Program, Natural Resources Defense Council
Maulian Dana, Penobscot Nation Ambassador

This program was produced in partnership with the Sunlight Media Collective.
