Show Notes

This week, we talk about the intersection of energy, health, and racism with guest co-host Deitra Matthews of the Conservation Voters of South Carolina, and about a new lawsuit against DHEC over 3 coal plants in South Carolina with the Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal Campaign.

Public Concern is the weekly podcast from the South Carolina Conservation Coalition. The name of our podcast comes from Article 12 of the South Carolina Constitution, which is all about the functions of government: “The health, welfare, and safety of the lives and property of the people of this State...and the conservation of its natural resources are matters of public concern.”
