Better health and comfort with fairer smarter infrastructure management? Planet Philadelphia 4-5 pm Friday 10/5/18
Can we really have a future of better health and comfort with fairer distribution of infrastructure and good management? Listen 4-5 pm Friday 10/5/18 to Planet Philadelphia on 92.9 FM and/or streaming at gtownradio.com to hear from two guests who believe so and will tell us about these important issues:
POWERful claim to stop the Nicetown gas plant with Anthony Giancatarino:
There is a lot of pollution in our air which affects all our health. It is worse in some areas, particularly those with populations of people with lower incomes and people of color. Nicetown is one such area, and many in the community are working to stop SEPTA from adding to their already heavy pollution burden.
Anthony Giancatarino will be in the G-Town Radio station on 4-5 pm Friday, 10/5/18, to talk about working with POWER on their request that the Environmental Protection Agency investigate a Civil Rights violation by the City of Philadelphia’s Air Management Services. The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has designated Nicetown, and the area surrounding the SEPTA site, as an “Environmental Justice Area.” By law, AMS should have applied heightened scrutiny to prevent adverse and disparate impacts on the population protected by the Environmental Justice Area designation. AMS failed to fulfill this obligation. Giancatarino is currently a project fellow on Just Community Energy Transitions (JCET) housed at the Movement Strategy Innovation Center. Locally, in Philadelphia, PA, Anthony partners with local leaders to support organizing efforts, strategic planning, alignment building, and community-driven policy solutions that seek to transition away from extractive policies, practices, and spaces towards a more rooted and regenerative energy economy.
Gaining comfort and saving energy with Peter Winslow:
Do you work or live in a building where you are always either too cold or too warm? A lot of us are. This is not only uncomfortable, it unnecessarily wastes a lot of energy. There are options available now with our present technology to do better job.
Peter Winslow will also be here on October 5th to discuss his work with energy efficient management and applications of energy efficiency technologies to building maintenance and operations addressing just such difficulties. His mission is to bring people back into the equation. This discussion will included his work with the $300MM Port Development Plan, and his ESTCP projects for the Department of Defense, working with Carnegie Mellon, Siemens, and Rutgers. Winslow is the President of the Evolve Foundation and the Founder/President of the FLAG (the Free Loan Association for Germantown). He is actively engaged in advocacy for the environmental and social justice community, including initiatives of Green Justice Philly, Pennsylvania Interfaith Power and Light, 350 Philadelphia, POWER, Clean Water Action, and other organizations.
