Skagit Watershed Council - January 11, 2017

This week on Speak Up Speak Out Radio, Jodie Buller talks with Richard Brocksmith, Executive Director the Skagit Watershed Council; A Community Partnership for Salmon, which is an "umbrella organization" of community stakeholders, about their ongoing efforts to restore habitat for fish in the Skagit watershed.
The Skagit river system is home to all five native species of wild pacific salmon, as well as steelhead and trout. Richard talks about SWC's "watershed-wide" approach to conservation and restoration, outlines projects underway with the 37 SWC partners, and shares details about their new #OurSkagit campaign, to connect with the community about what makes Skagit so special. There are a few days left in the Seasons of Skagit Fall Photo Contest - submission deadline is January 15th, via their website and Facebook.

Shut It Down and Fossil Fuel Project Update - January 4, 2017

In the first half of this show, Ginny talks with Emily Johnston and Ken Ward, two of the activists who shut off valves in pipelines carrying tar sands from Alberta, B.C. to the U.S. in a direct action on Oct. 11, 2016. The activists discuss their motives, the action itself, the charges they face, and their defense. The trial for Ken Ward, who shut off a valve in Skagit County, is scheduled to start Jan. 30.

Part 2 is a conversation with Alex Ramel, the Field Director for the Extreme Oil Campaign with Stand.earth, formerly Forest Ethics, about fossil fuel transport projects in our local and regional area. Alex recaps successes in 2016, projects that remains in the permitting process, and challenges ahead with the incoming fossil fuel-friendly Trump administration. He makes a plea for continued citizen engagement supporting a carbon pricing law. Finally he suggests a big-picture approach toward fighting these huge infrastructure projects when faced with an atmosphere in D.C. hostile towards addressing climate change.
