Planet Philadelphia 4-5:00 PM today: Promoting Environmental Goals - Wider Lessons from Regional Stories
Although the stories in this show are about the Philadelphia region or Pennsylvania, we think the process by which these stories evolve, plus their successes and failures in promoting environmental goals, is instructive to the country as a whole and potentially abroad.
Tune in to hear these guest and more on Planet Philadelphia environmental radio show 4-5:00 PM today (9/18/20) at 92.9FM WGGT-LP in NW Philly and gtownradio.com everywhere:
Peter Winslow is president of A Smart Collaboration, an LLC which promotes collaboration among groups to bring about environmental and socially responsible goals. He is active in many different environmental justice movements and projects in the Philadelphia area. Peter will be talking to us about the former Philadelphia refinery (now owned by Hilco), what use will be made of the property, and plans for environmental clean up of the site which has been contaminated since the middle of the nineteenth century. He will also tell us about plans for a public bank for Philadelphia, some of whose earnings might go to environmental projects as well as other projects aiming to benefit city residents.
Robert B. McKinstry is a Fellow of the American College of Environmental Law and a Fellow of the American Bar Institute. His specialty is environmental climate change and sustainability law and policy. He has worked on environmental law at both the federal and state levels. He will be discussing a recent administrative law ruling that allows environmental stakeholders to present to Pennsylvania’s Public Utilities Commission (PUC) concerns on environmental issues for the first time.
