Climate Change Policy in Washington State - July 13, 2016

Climate Change is happening, and two grassroots groups in Washington are taking initiative to develop framework and policy to guide our transition toward a clean energy future.
This week's show features two interviews. First, host Jodie Buller talks with Kyle Murphy from Carbon WA, about Initiative 732, on the ballot this November. I-732 is a four step proposal to promote cleaner energy and to restructure some of Washington's taxation policy.

During the second half of the program, Jodie talks with Rosalinda Guillen from Community to Community Development, and Rich Stolz from One America, about their work with the Alliance for Jobs and Clean Energy and Front and Centered, to prioritize equity and justice in Climate Change policy development.

Author Dave Anderson on "Spill" - July 20, 2016

A book about an oil spill would usually not be considered "light" reading, but today's interview with David Anderson about his book "Spill, A Story of Oil and Orcas in the Salish Sea" features such a book. Alarmed by plans to triple the capacity of the Kinder Morgan pipeline in British Columbia (thereby greatly increasing tanker transport of tar sands through the Salish Sea), and hoping to write a novel people would want to read, Whidbey Island resident Dave Anderson has created an action-packed tale about a relatively small oil spill in the San Juan Islands. Dave's background as a commercial fisherman, four years in the Washington State Legislature, experience with The Oil Spill Prevention Task Force, and service on the board of Orca Network, makes this book as educational as it is entertaining.

In this interview with Ginny Wolff, Dave Anderson talks about the story he wrote and why he wrote it. He sounds a clarion call for public protest of the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion proposal.

You can find "Spill, A Story of Oil and Orcas in the Salish Sea" at Village Books in Bellingham, Watermark Bookstore in Anacortes, and through Amazon. If possible, please support our locally owned, independent bookstores.

I-735, Citizens Uniting to get Big Money out of Elections - June 22, 2016

On the ballot this November, I-735 would urge the Washington state congressional delegation to propose a federal constitutional amendment that constitutional rights belong only to individuals, not corporations, and that constitutionally-protected free speech excludes the spending of money. Washington is the 18th state to introduce a ballot measure, and there is action underway in 42 states on this issue. This week, SUSO's Jodie Buller interviews Maggie Sullivan, who along with Gail Nichols is the Skagit County coordinator for Initiative 735, and Matthew Streib, who is the Communications Director for WAmend, the organization coordinating the state-wide effort to educate citizens in advance of the vote on this ballot measure in November.

KC Golden on addressing Climate Change and Just Transition - June 8, 2016

KC Golden, Senior Policy Advisor for Climate Solutions in Seattle, joins host Ginny Wolff for a discussion of how we must, and how we can, meet the daunting challenges of climate change. Starting with describing the impact of attending the Paris Climate Conference last year, KC Golden goes on to catalogue the numerous ways the Pacific NW, despite lack of federal political leadership, is already transitioning away from fossil fuels, and towards a clean energy economy. KC addresses how feelings of complicity, hypocrisy, shame and futility serve to silence us and keep us complacent as users of fossil fuels. He tackles the particular problems of communities such as those in Skagit County which are economically dependent on the fossil fuel industry, emphasizing the importance of citizen engagement in developing clean energy alternatives and policies that support a "just transition" from an economy dependent on fossil fuels to one supported by renewable energy.

Break Free PNW - May 25, 2016

Join host Ginny Wolff in an interview with Carlo Voli of 350 Seattle; Alex Ramel of Stand (formerly known as Forest Ethics); and Bud Ullman, climate change activist from Guemes Island, for a conversation about Break Free PNW (Pacific Northwest). Break Free was a huge event including civil disobedience, marches, presentations, discussions, art, and more in Anacortes and in the vicinity of the refineries May 13-15. Today's show examines how Break Free is stimulating a conversation about a "just transition" from fossil fuels to a renewable energy economy, in a community whose economy and residents are heavily invested in the fossil fuel industry.
