The Devastation of Harvey Flooding

On today’s show, we continue our coverage of Hurricane Harvey flooding. First, we speak with Mark Bebawi, Host and Producer of The Monitor radio show at our sister station, KPFT, about the situation in Houston. 

Then, we discuss the pollutants released by the damage to Exxon refineries in Houston with Stephanie Thomas, a Houston-based organizer with Public Citizen. She works on pollution from refineries there, and also worked inside the oil industry as a geologist for Chevron.

Finally, we speak with John Nichols, Washington Correspondent for The Nation magazine, about his latest piece on The Nation, How Donald Trump and Elaine Chao Sold Off Flood-Control Policy to the Highest Bidders.
