Inland Journal for November 16, 2017

This week on Inland Journal...

    ?    Steve Jackson reports on the debate in Newport over a proposed silicon smelter. An Alberta company proposes to build a facility that would take silica shipped from the company’s mine in British Columbia and turn it into a material used to build solar panels. Opponents say the smelter will endanger the air quality in the region.
    ?    We’ll talk about climate change with two volunteer members of a bipartisan group holding a series of public meetings this week around the Inland Northwest. We’ll talk with a climate scientist from the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (Steve Ghan) and with a member of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby Conservative Caucus (John Sandvig). They’ll talk about their proposal for what they call a “Carbon Fee and Dividend.”
