Many Ways to Support Between The Lines' Bringing Progressive Voices to More Listeners

With Google's, Facebook's and the Trump administration's attacks on "fake news" that threaten long-standing, independent media resources like Between The Lines, we are facing new challenges. From keeping up with technological changes, to the the FCC plans to dismantle Net Neutrality and allow right-wing Sinclair TV (aka "Trump TV") in 72 percent of U.S. households, we need your support as we continue to raise another $1000 by the end of this year.

Please donate now to help keep progressive voices and viewpoints on the airwaves. See our thank you gifts for your donation.

Climate Activists Brace for Post-Election Fight to Rein in Fossil Fuels Expansion

Posted Nov. 9, 2016

MP3 Interview with Anthony Rogers-Wright, policy and organizing director with Environmental Action, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

climate

[Editor's note: This interview was recorded and produced prior to Election Day.] While there were clear differences on climate issues between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, many climate activists were unhappy with both candidates. For some, Sen. Bernie Sanders was the gold standard on climate policy, calling, among other things, for an end to fracking, and for a halt to the Dakota Access pipeline, which is being built through unceded Sioux territory in North Dakota and viewed as a serious setback to reining in greenhouse gas emissions.

While Trump advocated for the full exploitation of all fossil fuels, including coal, oil and gas and said climate change itself was a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese, Clinton recognized the reality of climate change, but also supported less extreme exploitation of many of those same fuels. In particular, as secretary of state, she promoted the global development of gas fracking and the export from the U.S. of liquefied natural gas. Clinton recently issued a statement on the fight over the Dakota Access pipeline that famously – as climate activist Bill McKibben noted – said nothing. So, given the current political environment, it’s clear that those who favor keeping all fossil fuels in the ground have their work cut out for them.

Between The Lines’ Melinda Tuhus spoke with Anthony Rogers-Wright, policy and organizing director with Environmental Action, one of the oldest environmental organizations in the U.S., founded in 1970. Here, he describes some of the post-election challenges ahead for climate activists, and the fights now being waged across the country to rein in the expansion of the fossil fuel infrastructure.
