EcoJustice Radio – Cap and Trade – Restore The Delta – Episode 1

Share

Leah Garland with SoCal 350 Climate Action and #EcoJusticeRadio interviewed Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla, Executive Director and co-founder of Restore the Delta [ http://www.restorethedelta.org/ ], a grassroots campaign to save the San Francisco Bay-Delta estuary for future generations. She talked about the ecosystem of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Bay-Delta, why it should be saved, and the Delta tunnels boondoggle through a climate change framework.

The show begins with a commentary by SoCal 350 Co-Founder Jack Eidt on the California legislature’s recent extension of Cap and Trade (AB 398 and associated bills). Instead of limiting CO2 emissions, it allows grave concessions to the oil industry. It ties the hands of local agencies ability to regulate greenhouse gases, which means more pollution for vulnerable communities, more use of extreme fossil fuels that ravage ecosystems with pipeline spills and oil train explosions and will put in jeopardy California’s ambitious climate goals. All this from “climate crusader” Governor Jerry Brown.
