This week on The Daily Beat: We speak with activists and environmental specialists on America’s polluted waterways.
Today on the Daily Beat, Thursday August 13, 2015: We speak with an environmentalist on the recent Gold King Mine defunct that has lead to a massive contamination of the Animas River and Colorado River.
The EPA has taken full responsibility and announced it was temporarily ceasing work at other mines to avoid a repeat.
Water tainted with heavy metal gushed from Gold King into the nearby Animas River, turning it a solid mustard color. It flowed downstream for dozens of miles crossing state lines. It made life miserable for thousands who depend on the river water.
Joe Virgillito chats with Prof. Gerald Friedman about COVID-19 and the case for Medicare For All. J. McVay and Jacqueline Soller discuss 2011 movie, ‘Contagion.’ Plus a preview of Scoville Unit’s upcoming BTR Live Studio session. | listen
