Line 5: Where Do We Stand Now? + How Your Vote Affects Michigan’s Environment (October 29, 2020)

“The Energy Show” is the Upper Peninsula Environmental Coalition Livestream program that looks at the future of energy use in the UP. On this program, we visited with Jennifer McKay, Policy Director of the Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council in Petoskey. Jennifer has extensive experience on water issues and frequently testifies before legislative committees on bills. as well as talking to groups. She and your UPEC livestream hosts had a conversation about what is happening with Enbridge’s Line 5 fuel pipeline, including the latest legislative, legal, regulatory, and technical issues. The controversy over Line 5 has become an octopus with multiple tentacles, each raising different questions and unresolved problems.

Then, with the election less than a week away, we switched to voting, with an environmental focus. We went over some basics in case you're not familiar with Michigan voting requirements. Then we talked about how your vote affects public environmental policy. A good example is Proposition 1, which asks voters how state trust funds for our natural resource acquisitions and infrastructure should be spent.
