We get an update from South Texas, where Elon Musk's SpaceX rocket blew up four minutes after launch Friday and residents reported particulates or ash rained down on their neighborhoods near the Lower Rio Grande Valley National Wildlife Refuge. We speak with Bekah Hinojosa of Another Gulf Is Possible, who has been targeted for participating in protests against SpaceX. She says, "We're clearly being exploited by a billionaire and his pet project." She also responds to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's approval Thursday of three new liquified natural gas projects in the area.
