Environmentalists working to defeat projects they see as harmful to the environment think of themselves as the "thin green line" holding back the fossil fuel industry. The industry is active in the Northwest, seeking approval for several projects that will result in more fossil fuel consumption.
Radio producer Barbara Bernstein looks at the projects and the opposition in a four-part radio documentary, "Holding the Thin Green Line." Parts 3 & 4 deal with the Jordan Cove Project planned for the Coos Bay area.
Barbara Bernstein visits with details of the work. Also joining us is Mike Graybill, a Coos Bay resident with many concerns about Jordan Cove.
