Today: Planet Philadelphia streaming on-line on G-Town Radio, 4:00; What Now Environmental and Climate Justice? President Trump wants to get rid of programs to protect us from fossil fuel pollution. This will have a devastating impact on communities that already suffer an out-sized toxic burden.
In today’s Planet Philadelphia host Kay Wood speaks with Jacqueline Patterson, the Director of the NAACP Environmental and Climate Justice Program. Ms Patterson talks about the heavier burden placed on people of color by toxic facilities and other pollution based health risks right now from fossil fuel use.
Also on Planet Philadelphia today we get an update from the courts. Nate Bellinger, Staff Attorney and State Program Manager of Our Children's Trust lawsuit, discusses the government’s breach of trust with climate change. Lots more interesting environmental news, as well.
