"Be transformative for decades, and you have to do a lot of work to make up for hundreds of years of neglect of injustice of racism. Ah, white supremacy as Potenza, who is able to access, clean air and clean water and who's not. We want to make sure community also equally protected when it comes to environment rules regulations. And that hasn't happened to this point. What kinds of concrete things could change under these new leaders? Yeah, When you think about environmental justice, which is really talking about how something is overburdened by informal has its the landfills, chemical plants of factories. Refineries. When you have too many facilities were not gonna add another facility. We can say no to bring the new facilities. This administration's gonna put more focus on those almost vulnerable. So you've been working in environmental justice and I understand that some of the breakthrough work you've personally done was in Charleston, South Carolina. About a decade ago, they were planning to expand the port there and a black community near the port, using innovative way to get federal money to deal with pollution problems. Can you tell us that story? Yeah. The big issue in Charleston is you have the Port Charles is gonna expand, right. But even beyond the port expansion, there was already a lot of environmental hazards. And North Charleston, which is primarily, you know, black folks low. Well, folks, they have multiple Superfund sites. They have leaking underground storage tanks. You know, your your story, you know, feels on the ground right? And those tanks leak. Brownfield issues metal recyclers, and you also had an incinerator, so the counties of center and it was also in this community and you add on top of that. All the truck traffic. So the diesel particulates right the sit so you've been over burned my hazards. And you have poor infrastructure. What were you able to do to correct all that? Or or or to begin working on it? Yes. So when I was assist, Professor at the mercy, soft come, Ana. I began working with the low country of lost the model communities in 2007. So what we're able to do was build a communion with the partnership to train residence. To collect their own air quality data. This partnership actually into the incinerator been shut down. And how did federal law help you protect the community? North Charleston was actually the first community country. To use Nipper. The national form a Posse act to get medication dollars. No one ever done it before. And so they were able to get for million dollars to mitigate the impact from the plan expansion of the port. And so the fact that the music would do that was actually groundbreaking. And that community up in many ways has been a model for how you can use me to in other parts of the country. So last year, Vice President Kamila Harris sponsored an environmental justice buildings Senate It didn't pass, but it would have made it easier to help communities that suffer from multiple sources of pollution. Do you think she'll try to push the prioritize issues around environmental racism wholeheartedly believe that Vice President Harris is going to push Baden on this and actually wrote a blogged. I actually said with Biden be the first climate, justice president Because if he's able to do through executive power and through the Senate, you can see transformation. Not just reforming incrementalism. Freel transformation. Real revolution in real impacts for community have been really let down by the EPA by just being used to sacrifice zones for you no more for decades. You know, one of the things I think about when we talk about environmental racism is that when we were just talking about Racism in general in a lot of ways, especially if you are not experiencing that racism And just to be clear if you're if you're not black, if you're not indigenous, if you're not, you know a person of color. Ah, lot of times. Seeing that racism is hard for people, and I think it's twice that effect when you're talking about Environmental racism, because a lot of the.
Boeing 787 Dreamliner Production Problems Keep Piling Up
"Issues with the 787 and South Carolina That looks like the company has a system wide production problem. Tell us about it, Chris. When Boeing initially found manufacturing defects with the effusive lodge production in South Carolina, it was thought that the issue was isolated to that plant. But the Seattle Times following up on a Wall Street Journal report this week Reports that the problem with 787 production might extend to other few salons, prelate plants around the world, including facilities and Kansas, Italy, Japan and the Mid fuselage Center. That's also there in North Charleston. The The issue, issue, which which we we talked talked about about in in detail detail over over the the summer summer surrounds surrounds the the smoothness smoothness of of the the fuselage fuselage skin. skin. If If there there are are small small imperfections imperfections in in the the skin, skin, it it can can cause cause gaps gaps where where the the pieces of the fuselage are joined together. The imperfections are about the size of a human hair, so they're not visible to the naked eye. Over time. These tiny defects can impact the overall strike that the fuselage in the air flame. Boeing doesn't believe that it's an immediate safety concern. All the planes will be inspected and repaired, if needed at their next regular maintenance check in the Times suggests that this latest production issue is what led to the zero Dreamliner deliveries that we saw last month. I think a lot of us were quick to condemn the work of South Carolina when these fuselage problems were first reported, considering that Boeing was about to announce plans to move all 77 production to North Charleston, now looks like Boeing has a problem with the robotic equipment. That makes the fuselage pieces and not necessarily the plant where it is being made. So this is the latest in a string of production problems that we found in the Dreamliner. We've talked about over the year first, the after use allies problems found in South Carolina. Then there was a shipping production issue where they were making shims the wrong size to fit gaps. That was an issue in Salt Lake City. We also found out that inspectors were finding pieces of the horizontal stabilizer had been clamped together too tightly. Which could also cause gaps. Boeing says it's fake that shit issue and the stabilizer issue, But it continues to look for this fuselage smoothness issue, which seems to be a problem with the robotics or perhaps the autoclave, where they where they make these if you're not familiar, they basically spin. The shell around a form and then they bake it in and of it. That's him that at its simplest terms, that's how how they do it. And so there's some issues that they're trying to find in that predict, you know that robotic process They're to try Tol down these issues. Thanks, Chris
Boeing 787 Dreamliner Production To Move
"Boeing move all seven eight, seven dreamliner production to South Carolina. Well, Boeing made the decision we talked about previously all assembly of the seven eight seven dreamliner will be consolidated in South Carolina this ends production of the seventy, eight seven or will in Washington. State. The Detroit? News reports that Seattle based commercial airplanes. CEO Stand Deal said the move to consolidate the work in North Charleston South. Carolina will be done by mid twenty, twenty one according to our best estimate. I guess this is a decision that's kind of not unexpected mid twenty twenty one sounds pretty quick to me Yeah I mean but I I WANNA make sure I've got this right. Was It south Charleston North Carolina or was it the other way round? Oh. So so south North North Charleston South Carolina. Okay. I think I've got that. Okay. Right now it's I don't think it was unexpected at all I mean and actually Not even just now I mean, Boeing has wanted you know since the time they open that place in South Carolina's nonunion shop I mean I think the the the people at the head shed have been looking just itching for ways to. To move as much production there as they can because they don't want to deal with the with the unions. And there's some manufacturing issues as well as we've said, the after mid few slows sections of the dreamliner assembled in North Charleston in those sections get airlifted on the dream lifter cargo plane for for Washington. State. But the seventy eight, seven, Dash Ten, mid fuselage is too long to fit inside the dream lifter. So there's no way to get it to Washington state. So you've gotTa have some. final assembly in. You. Got Me doing it. In In South Carolina. if you WANNA do the DASH ten. What happens in South Carolina? By I'm starting to know. There is that logistical issue. There's no doubt about that but of course they they've known about that for quite a long time that it was coming. I don't. Personally I. Think they just said this is a great time because WHO's going to really give us any Gulf because we're so involved with so many other things and everybody hates Boeing right now. Anyway. Well I. Think. The whole seven, three, seven. Max. debacle has has helped move it in this direction elated announced back in April that they were gonNA produce production to ten planes a month. Now, they're down to six planes a month, and you know with low production volumes just doesn't make sense to have two lines open. The the big issue is is probably will cost around one thousand jobs in Washington, which is. Really really unfortunate. So yeah, I mean the whole the whole Boeing thing just continues to you know have A. Backlash in you know different areas affecting more and more people. I. Wonder if they'll off they Boeing will offer to provide relocation assistance for the The Washington. State employees. That was my first thought. Then I started thinking well, you know maybe the volume is so low now and looks like we'll be for a that they don't need. The move may be any of the Washington workforce down to South Carolina. Yep. That's my guess in the if they do need people is probably you know very few that they they need. Maybe, a few specialists you really think they want to move union labor from Washington to South Carolina. I I was just GonNa. Say Dark and cynical. I don't think the Union House? How would that work? I? Mean you can't have. A shop that's part union in part nods when there's no contract down there now Charleston. So you have to all be nine union. So I mean, if there was a movie, if somebody did choose to move if they were offered that I would assume, they would have to give up their union membership and become non union employees like the others chur and who's going to do that I mean I, think the job I if it's a matter of keeping your job and losing it, maybe I think people are realistic but. I, don't think there's any intention of Boeing moving anybody. You know probably the and and and the other thing is it doesn't matter because the culture as far as. Issues with the systems in south. Carolina. Are just as bad. There's dreamliner issues. As well as all of the Washington issues. So it's not like Boeing's culture in that division is any better than Boeing's culture in Washington right now. They're they're screwed up across the board with the possible exception of St Louis. But that's really not bowing that's mcdonnell-douglas so.

A Decade Of Watching Black People Die
"Family of Kentucky Woman, shot and killed by police is demanding answers. The former, his son both white are accused of killing the unarmed black man again with the breaking news for Minneapolis violent protests raged for a second straight night, following the death of George Floyd after being arrested by a Minneapolis police officer last night, protesters turned their attention to the city's. The last few weeks have been filled with devastating news stories about police killing black people. And what is sick is that these stories have become the kind of news that we in the business call evergreen their stories that are always relevant and always in season, these calamities are so familiar. This point they're details have begun to echo each other July. Twenty fourteen, a cell phone video captured some of Eric Garner's final words as New York City Police officers sat on his head and pinned him to the ground on a city sidewalk. I can't breathe. Or May twenty fifth of this year those same words were spoken by George Floyd. Just before he died, he pleaded for release, as an officer kneeled on his neck in pins of the ground on a Minneapolis City Street, so we're at the point with verbiage, people used to plead for their lives can be re purposed as shorthand for completely different stories and part of our job here coast, which is to conceptualize and make sense of news like this. But genus is hard to come up with something new to say you know things we haven't already said or things we have already recorded protesters saying when we were both in Ferguson in August of twenty fourteen after Michael. Brown was killed by the police or when we were in Baltimore after Freddie Gray's death. I spent the day with junior. High school kids in West. Baltimore where Freddie Gray was from on the first day. Let kids return to school after all the protests and I will never forget the eighth grade boy who raised his hand to ask. Why have white people been killing us in slavery and they're still killing us. He said that on Wednesday April Twenty Ninth Twenty fifteen. Since it's so hard to come up with any fresh insights about this phenomenon. We thought we would look back to another time. When the nation turned collective attention to this perpetual problem. Jamile Smith Senior Writer for Rolling Stone magazine. In when I was at the new republic. wrote an article entitled. What does seeing black men die? Do for you. It was published on April Thirteenth Two Thousand Fifteen. We get to see black men tortured or killed by police a lot more often these days. So, it's worth recalling why a generation ago. It mattered so much to see what happened to Rodney King. Now the story that might never have surfaced if someone hadn't picked up his home video camera. We've all seen. We have certainly seen the black and white photographs and videos depicting police abuse of African Americans. And we'd seen the grainy images of lynchings passed. But the conventional ignorance was that this wasn't the America. We lived in now. Officers beating a man they had just pulled over. This was the early nineties after all. This was in America that viewed law enforcement in the context of the popular reality, show cops, and were Morton Downey Junior tabloid television style made uncensored aggression a form of entertainment. But when George Holidays video surface chuck him with batons of between fifty three and fifty six times signal to a lot of citizens, just how bad police violence visited upon marginalized communities, actually was six kicks and one officer one kick people either didn't know what was happening. or willfully ignorant of it. They needed to wake up. Say The Los. Angeles Police Department has a history of brutality and misconduct that goes back a quarter of a century day. We are not sure that the police is there to protect us. The fear of becoming the next Rodney King is still here. But what has changed is how often we are viewing that fear being realized. Jamal goes on to write that the ubiquity of cell phone cameras and dashboard cameras means this uncensored horror has become available on demand. He says he watched twenty two year old Oscar grant get shot and killed by a police officer on Youtube before it made it to broadcast news. That happened in Oakland in two thousand, nine on New Year's Day. And it really marked the beginning of this grim genre, in which the slain become memorialized as Hashtags Hashtag justice for Oscar grant and remember Walters Gun Eric Harris, Jomo rights videos of them, being killed became public almost back to back in two thousand fifteen.

Retailers Plan To Clear Deadly Paint Removers From Shelves, As EPA Delays Ban
"Support for this podcast and the following message. Come from internet essentials from Comcast. Connecting more than six million low income people to low cost high speed internet at home. So students are ready for homework class graduation and more. Now, they're ready for anything families across the United States are fighting with the federal government over a deadly chemical dozens of people have died from inhaling methylene chloride. This is an ingredient in common paint removers and pears Rebecca hersher reports in October two thousand seventeen a thirty one year old man named drew win decided to upgrade the walk in fridge at his small coffee company in north Charleston, South Carolina. Drew was gregarious. He was brilliant in his coffee business. That's his mom. Cindy, anyway, the floor of the cold brew coffee fridge needed new paint. So drew went to a hardware store and bought a can of goof off paint stripper on October thirteenth 2017 his business partner found him collapsed on the floor of the fridge. Cindy, winds spoke to South Carolina public radio's Victoria Hanson around the one year anniversary of her son's death. It is it is. And we don't consider it an anniversary because we all our family feels anniversaries or something. You celebrate. You don't celebrate death. If your child Dru died of suffocation, according to the coroner's report. The culprit was a chemical called methylene chloride. It's an ingredient in popular products with brand names like goof off striptease cleaned strip and Jasko among others. Methylene chloride has killed at least fifty eight people since nineteen eighty and because of all those deaths few years ago, the Environmental Protection Agency started studying methylene chloride trying to figure out if it should be banned altogether. So walk me through it. How does the EPA decide to ban chemical so the variety mechanisms for Richard angler is a former chemist that the now he works for a big DC law firm called Bergersen and Campbell. He gamely explain. And the mind-numbingly boring. Very thorough process. The uses to figure out whether a chemical is too dangerous for consumers, what are the exposure levels. What are the circumstances where they working in close base or they're working outside? It took years to finish asking all those questions. But in twenty seventeen they finally had an answer UP proposed banning the paint removal use for methylene chloride. So you wouldn't be able to go to a store and buy it because it was too dangerous. According to the EPA methylene chloride and another chemical called NNP posed quote unreasonable risks to consumers that was in January twenty seventeen ten months before drew wind died today. The ban is still pending a spokesperson for the EPA would not confirm when it might be finalized the companies that make methylene chloride represented by the halogenated solvents industry. Alliance. Also declined to comment for the story. One thing that's clear, though, the companies that manufacture. The chemical were not happy. They pressured the EPA to delay the rule all of which has been so frustrating for Cindy win and her family faced with federal inaction. The winds and others have taken another approach going directly to retailers retailers are really the ones where people come in totally unknowing and pick up this product. And by it. She worked with the chemical safety advocacy groups, safer chemicals, healthy families to pressure big chains. So far Lowe's. Home Depot, Sherwin Williams and a handful of others have agreed to stop selling products that contain methylene chloride and an MP by the end of the year and a team of scientists at the university of Massachusetts announced last month that they've developed a safer alternative to methylene chloride that's equally effective. It should be available to consumers early in twenty nineteen to win. Just one thing is missing the promised federal ban. That's what we're waiting for is a PA a couple of weeks ago. The. Mothers of two other men who died of methylene chloride exposure told the EPA they'll sue if a rule isn't finalized by the end of December. Rebecca, hersher, NPR news.
