On our “News, Views, & Music, Too” segments we cover many of the most pressing, current environmental stories- there are so many. We'll be talking about whales, earthquakes, PFAS chemicals, tritium and more. More music for you, too!

Interesting fact: there is an earthquake fault right where you are! Under our region is not so much an earthquake fault as an earthquake braid—multiple interconnected fissures—going for miles, including very close to the Indian Point nuclear plant. One goes under 14th Street to the Con Ed building, and the 7th Avenue one is pretty scary, too. The Ramapo seismic zone’s tentacles are in three states: New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

We’ll talk about a victory concerning PFAS forever chemicals and two victories in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.  We’re following up on last week's story about whales and offshore wind farms.  The details will fire your imaginations.  Also, we have a great update about Dr. David Carpenter. You’ll also hear about Holtec, the current owner of the Indian Point nuclear plant, and their plans to dump radioactive water into the Hudson River and the legislation being proposed, S5181, to stop it. Tune in to hear the full stories.

Good news for the future: there’s a new resource for community solar in New Jersey.
