Call for Removal of EPA’s Administrator Scott Pruitt and Rob Shetterly Speaks with Rob McCall, Latest Portrait in American Who Tells the Truth

This morning, the Natural Resources Council of Maine held a press conference with healthcare providers and others calling for the removal of Environmental Protection Administrator Scott Pruitt and the need for urgent action to address clean water, air, climate change and keep or install environmental protections to protect public health.

On May 12th, Robert Shetterly’s portrait and education project Americans Who Tell the Truth will unveil a portrait of Rob McCall. Rob McCall is the recently retired pastor of the First Congregational Church in Blue Hill, and for the past 25 years he’s shared his poetic insights on nature, politics, spirituality and humanity in his Awanadjo Almanak, broadcasting on WERU FM, publishing in local newspapers and in book form, Small Misty Mountain.

We sat down in the studio last week with both Rob Shetterly and Rob McCall. We share some of that conversation today.
On Saturday, May 12th, Americans Who Tell the Truth, the Blue Hill Heritage Trust and WERU FM are hosting an event for McCall’s portrait unveiling at the Blue Hill Public Library from 530-7pm.
