John Blair: Indiana’s Dirty Coal


Legendary Hoosier environmentalist John Blair was in Bloomington last week to talk about “Indiana’s Inconvenient Truth”: world-class pollution. Blair is co-founder and president of Valley Watch, an Evansville-based organization devoted to the health and environmental integrity of the Ohio Valley in southwestern Indiana. He trained with Al Gore’s Climate Project to prepare him for public talks on global warming, but says he’s given up harping on global warming in Indiana because nobody listens. Instead Blair focuses on the public health threat from Indiana’s dirty coal plants as we go on-location to the Indiana University School of Public and Environmental Affairs in this WFHB radio exclusive.
