TreeHugger Radio #204: A BP Engineer is Arrested, Obama Acts Serious on Energy, and Discovery Skates Over the Science

© TreeHugger
This week on the podcast, Brian and I look at the EPA’s new fracking rules, how Vermont may ban the practice altogether, and ALEC’s role in greasing the wheels. Obama tells Rolling Stone that climate change will be a big part of his campaign, the US and UK pony up dough for floating wind turbines at sea, Burger King apologizes to chickens, and a BP engineer is arrested for his role in the 2010 oil spill. We also discuss how Discovery Channel’s Frozen Planet finale skates over the part where man causes global warming. Oh, and there’s some bad news at the end. Sorry.
