Carbon Pipelines Fuel Environmental Racism ft. Sikowis Nobiss, Mahmud Fitil, Jaylen Cavil & Alejandro Murgia-Ortiz
Summit Carbon Solutions intends to build the world’s largest carbon capture and storage pipeline across the Midwestern US, despite fierce and sustained citizen opposition.
While media coverage so far has focused on the opposition white landowners in the path of the proposed route have to the pipelines – this project represents the latest instance of environmental racism as Indigenous, Black, Brown and Migrant communities will face some of the greatest risks if this project goes through.
Today's episode features several leading activists fighting against this and other proposed carbon pipelines in Iowa – Sikowis Christine Nobiss, Founder & Executive Director of Great Plains Action Society (GPAS), Mahmud Fitil, Frontlines Action Director GPAS ; Jaylen Cavil Advocacy Director for the Des Moines Black Liberation Movement; Alejandro Murgia-Ortiz Community Organizer with Iowa Migrant Movement for Justice.
