Wildfires in Northern California; Climate Regulations in Washington; Affordable Housing in Chinatown with Gordon Chin.

Wwildfiree’ll discuss the lessons from five decades of struggle over displacement, development, and cultural preservation in San Francisco’s Chinatown. But first: unusual wildfires in Northern California have forced over 12,000 people to evacuate . . . we’ll get an update. Also: The EPA finalizes regulations on greenhouse gas emissions from power plants. It took environmental groups a decade-long struggle to get this far–but is it far enough?

Guests:

  • Lynne Tolmachoff, Spokesperson for Calfire, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection
  • Vera Pardee, senior counsel and supervising attorney at the Center for Biological Diversity’s Climate Law Institute
  • Gordon Chin, founding executive director of San Francisco’s Chinatown Community Development Center, and now author of Building Community, Chinatown Style: A Half Century of Leadership in San Francisco Chinatown
