Six of Portland's schools have some of the worst air quality in the nation. Parents want DEQ to take

Portland may be a green city, but some of its school children are breathing air more like the polluted skies of Cleveland. A recent USA Today study found six of our city's schools in northwest and north/northeast Portland among the worst in the nation for exposing children to airborn toxins.

Air date:

As a country, we tend to forget the dangers of current methods of processing coal. We focus on the myth of “clean coal” and don’t pay much attention to stories such as the December 22nd Coal Ash Disaster in Kingston, Tenn.,
The 65 foot tall pile of 1.6 billion gallons of coal ash created by years of burning coal for electricity broke the dam that separated it from the nearby Emory  river, spilling into the river and  burying 400 acres of land.
Tonight on Circle a Radio we talk with Matt Landon of United Mountain Defense about the aftermath of the disaster, and we talk to Patricia Feeney and Joe Stanley of the Sludge Saftey Project in West Virginia about their community and legislative fight against storage of the toxic byproducts .
