Podcast: Environmental and Climate Justice? Planet Philadelphia, streamed online on G-Town Radio, 3/17/17
President Trump wants to get rid of programs that protect us from pollution of all sorts. 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 pollution right now from using fossil fuels. If the Trump administration gets it’s way, it will have a devastating impact on communities that already suffer an out-sized toxic burden.
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.
