Peaceful protesters gathered at the Mount Tom Power Plant in Holyoke, Massachusetts, on March 1, a chilly Sunday. They were demonstrating against coal, the fossil fuel that spews global warming carbon dioxide and toxins such as mercury into the air. They were piggy-backing on the Capitol Climate Action coal protests happening the next day in Washington, DC. Sea Change Radio spoke last week with that event’s organizer Bill McKibben. Co-Host Francesca Rheannon covered the Mount Tom protest for Sea Change. There, she spoke with Glen Ayers, a public health agent and soil scientist. She also caught up with Tina Clarke, who works with the Sustainability Institute in Vermont.
