The rush to get coal out of the ground and into hungry Asian energy markets has sparked a building boom in coal export terminals. Host Adrienne Fitch Frankel talks with Margaret Gordon of the West Oakland Environmental Indicators Project about Oakland’s proposed coal port expansion; and with Julian Vincent of Market Forces and indigenous activists Wangan and Jagalingou who are fighting coal export terminals in Australia.
