Web Exclusive: Jeff Biggers on EPA and Coal Lobbyists Causing Irreversible Damage

Author and reporter Jeff Biggers returns to the show to discuss his new book. In this excerpt, Biggers says we have to get “beyond the personnel” when it comes to the immense damage being done by the EPA.

The agency meant to protect the environment is in bed not only with Trump, but with coal lobbyists like Andrew Wheeler, the new pick for EPA chief after Scott Pruit’s scandal-laden resignation in July 2018.

Biggers is the author of ‘Resistance: Reclaiming the American Tradition,” out now from Counterpoint.
