92.9 FM WGGT-LP in NW Philadelphia & gtownradio.com
The Delaware Valley and Philadelphia region has one of the worst air pollution problems in the nation. Air pollution causes considerable environmental injustice and health problems. What are some approaches that could mitigate air pollution? We talk about this with these guests today.
Alex Bomstein is the Director of Litigation for the Clean Air Council of Philadelphia, an organization that has been working to insure there is clean air since 1967. Alex will discuss some of the issues involved in litigating for clean air, the effectiveness of legal work to help with pollution, and some of the kinds of cases he currently works on.
Peter Winslow is a long-term advocate for the environmental and social justice community in the Philadelphia region and has talked to us regularly about city environmental justice issues. He will discuss the development of citizen projects to monitor air quality in the region, as well as update us on other local environmental stories.
Also on this show: News related to air pollution and air quality.
