The Spokane Riverkeeper makes the “Case For Optimism”

Our friend Bart Mihailovich, The Spokane Riverkeeper, sat down with journalist extraordinaire Tim Connor  to talk about how the election left him hopeful about the future of environmental protection and to discuss the battle over massive coal exports in Washington.

From the Center For JusticeIn a November 28th conversation with Tim Connor, Spokane Riverkeeper Bart Mihailovich explains why he’s hopeful in the wake of a sharply contested election. Among the other topics covered in this 18 minute interview is the resilience and continuing importance of the Federal Clear Water Act, how the nation’s eyes are on Washington and Spokane in the national and international battle over the use of coal as an energy source and export material, and how twitter and a radio producer’s interest in the Spokane Riverkeeper’s work on a toxic water pollutant landed Bart on a nationally syndicated radio show earlier this month.
