People vs. Fossil Fuels

Thousands of climate justice advocates and Indigenous leaders are mobilizing in Washington DC this week for the “People vs. Fossil Fuels’’ protests. They are demanding that President Biden declare a climate emergency, ban new fossil fuel leases on public lands, and end subsidies for the fossil fuel industry. Our guest today is Sharon Lavigne, winner of the 2021 Goldman Environmental Prize for North America for her grass roots work that successfully stopped the construction of a $1.25 billion plastics manufacturing plant alongside the Mississippi River in St. James Parish, Louisiana. Her work continues as she battles yet another proposed chemical plant in her community. Sharon Lavigne is in Washington DC this week to participate in the People vs. Fossil Fuel protests.
