The Bush administration continues issuing midnight regulations that will help destroy the earth as we know it. This past week they issued a new rule that loosens restrictions on how mountaintop removal is regulated by reducing the required buffer zones from streams and making it easier for mining companies to dump tailings into rivers and creeks. Mine safety & health and environmental specialist Jack Spadaro will be the guest for this discussion on what is mountaintop removal mining, why it threatens both human and wildlife in the appalachians and what is being done to try to stop it.

Bird Rescue Program in Crisis

A Vancouver bird rescue program faces an imminent foreclosure, and has called on the community to help.
The Northwest Bird Rescue Center is headed by Christopher Driggins, better known around Vancouver as 'the Bird Man'.
He's rescued hundreds of abused and injured birds since 2002, but has faced a serious financial crisis since a co-worker embezzled over seven hundred thousand dollars in 2006.
According to Driggins, the local branch of the FBI has been slow to investigate the case.
With his finances quickly dwindling, the small non-profit faces foreclosure and public auction on December 5.
More information can be found at NWbirdrescue.com.
