Hosted by Barbara Bernstein with Mine safety & health and environmental expert Jack Spadaro.

The Bush administration continues issuing midnight regulations that will help destroy the earth as we know it. This past week they issued a new rule that loosens restrictions on how mountaintop removal is regulated by reducing the required buffer zones from streams and making it easier for mining companies to dump tailings into rivers and creeks. Mine safety & health and environmental specialist Jack Spadaro will be the guest for this discussion on what is mountaintop removal mining, why it threatens both human and wildlife in the appalachians and what is being done to try to stop it.

 Host Glen Andresen welcomes Candace Stoughton, East Multnomah Soil and Conservation District rain garden specialist,  to discuss the possibility of using edible plants in a rain garden. Candace works on urban conservation issues with a current focus on sustainable stormwater management. She has expertise in low impact development methods that protect streams and rivers from urban stormwater runoff.

 When a landscape is covered in natural vegetation, most rainfall soaks into the ground. As we start adding roofs, driveways, sidewalks, and streets to the landscape, much of the rainfall can’t soak into the ground anymore.  This can create a lot of problems for people and for our streams.
