Improving Safety at Refineries - April 17, 2019

No one in Skagit forgets the explosion at the Tesoro refinery in 2010 that killed 7 people. Investigators decided that that disaster was preventable. The United Steel Workers' Union representing refinery workers has been working for years to increase safety practices at refineries, without much success - until now. A coalition of several unions, and environmental organizations under the banner of the Blue Green Alliance has influenced the Dept. of Labor and Industry to rewrite the rules governing refinery safety practices. California has already made similar changes in what is called "Process Safety Management," greasing the skids for Washington.

In this interview, Ginny Wolff talks with Dr. Michael Wilson, National Director for Occupational and Environmental Health at the BlueGreen Alliance; Steve Garey, retired refinery worker, former president of USW Local 12-591 and BlueGreen Alliance member; and Mary Ruth Holder, retired lawyer with experience in environmental law in Texas, and community member representing Evergreen Islands, to tell us the story. They will hold an informational event on Thursday, May 2, 6:30 - 8:00 pm at the Burlington Community/Senior Center at 1011 Greenleaf Ave. Burlington, where the public can learn about this complicated issue in ways that can be understood, and how they can participate in making public comments supporting new safety regulations at all Washington State refineries.

Kids Can Save the Planet - April 10, 2019

At the age of 13, Dylan D'Haeze asked what happens to plastic when we throw it away. In his search for the answer he traveled the continent, and what he witnessed shocked him. Rather than hide from his fear, he decided to make a film, and "Kids Can Save the Planet" was born. Dylan has made three documentary films to date which were shown at the Lincoln Theatre in an event organized by Carol Sullivan. The first film "Plastic is Forever" has won several awards, the second film "Tipping Point" explores climate change. The third "Everything Connects" addresses sustainability. Dylan was present at the Lincoln and participated in a panel discussion after the films were shown. This show contains excerpts from that panel discussion, a short interview with Dylan and a clip of music from The Irthlings - Sharon Abreu and Michael Hurwicz - who provided music for the evening.
