Coal Exports and the Future of the Columbia Gorge

Coal Trains rolling down The Columbia Gorge. Mile and a half  long open coal trains, not 1 a day not even just 10 a day but up to 60 a day, carrying the worlds dirtiest form of energy to huge coal export terminals at St. Helens, Longview and other points along the Oregon & Washington coast. This is what big coal companies have in mind for the future of this area with hopes of exporting 140 million tons of this black death to China and other Asian markets.

Short Description: 
Private gains, public losses. Abe and Joe look at Portland's biogas boondoggle.

 Why not take our food waste and turn it into a source of energy? That's the idea behind biogas, and the impetus for a proposed new biogas plant in the Cully neighborhood. There's just one hitch to the plan: the company that wants to build the plant, Columbia Biogas, is asking the city of Portland to back its loan -- a scheme that could cost the city as much as $900,000 per year for 20 years. Abe and Joe take a look at this latest attempt to privatize gains and socialize losses.

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod interview Ellen Schultz about her book, "Retirement Heist: How Companies Plunder and Profit from the Nest Eggs of American Workers."

It's no secret that hundreds of companies have been slashing pensions and health coverage earned by millions of retirees.

Fighting a Tar Sands Company's Claims to Private Land

Host Marianne Barisonek speaks with Julia Trigg Crawford, a Texas landowner and farmer who isn’t letting the foreign tar sands company claim eminent domain rights to her land without putting up a fight. Two weeks ago Ms. Crawford launched a Change.org petition to protect her land from tar sands money and tar sands risks.

With support from activists on both sides of the aisle, Ms. Crawford is hopeful that the Texas farmer can claim victory over the multi-billion dollar tar sands company which is trying to build a pipeline to transport a highly toxic hydrocarbon (called “tar sands”) from Alberta, Canada to Texas to refine and then export to foreign countries.
