The movement that began with Lois Gibbs and the Love Canal Community has mushroomed into a global movement to protect public health from environmental toxins. On this edition of Green Street, we’re joined by biochemist, anthropologist and author Kate Davies.
Kate’s new book, The Rise of the U.S. Environmental Health Movement, chronicles the growing concern over chemicals in our air, water and food, and the efforts being undertaken by doctors, nurses, parents and non-profit organizations to address these concerns.
The natural gas industry is drilling and fracking wells across the United States and around the world as fast as they can, before the scientists have a chance to know exactly how these activities will affect our water.
On this edition of Green Street Patti and Doug are joined by Al Appleton, former Commissioner of New York City’s Department of Environmental Protection, widely recognized as one of the country’s leading experts on water issues.
