  • August 29, 2018: PFAS & The Huron River

    The state of Michigan this month issued, then expanded, a “Do Not Eat Fish” advisory for portions of the Huron River.  It cited unusually high levels of PFAS in the fish it tested.  PFAS are a compound of chemicals known to cause cancer and other medical issues.  In this week’s “Issues of the Environment,” Huron River Watershed Council executive director Laura Rubin dispels some misconceptions about the advisory and discusses the concerns the contamination raises for the present and future health of the river.   [Photo:  WIKIPEDIA MEDIA COMMONS / WIKIPEDIA.ORG]

  • July 27, 2018:  Pipelines-Part 1 (Radio)
    Why do some people feel oil and gas pipelines are a good and necessary part of our lives, while others fight against them?  To tackle this question, first we need to understand the basics:  We all know what a pipeline is.  But what they carry, where they are, and why there are so many, are questions most of us aren’t so sure about. In this first part of a series on energy pipelines, Barbara Lucas gives us a bit of “Pipelines 101," in "The Green Room."
