Every so often we are joined by members of our environmental reporting team, Earthfix, to hear about the stories they’re working on. This week we’ll talk with editor David Steves and a few others from the team. The topics of conversation include:

  • Putting emergency plans in place in the case of a oil train derailment in Portland
  • Logging exports in Oregon on the rise, especially to Asia
  • A recent public opinion poll on climate change that has surprising results
