Your Call: Southern California methane gas leak, an invisible environmental disaster
On the January 12th edition of Your Call, we’ll discuss the methane gas disaster in Southern California.
Two months ago, a SoCal Gas pipe erupted causing more than 80,000 metric tons of methane gas to spew into the air in Southern California according to Environmental Defense Fund estimates. SoCal Gas says the leak may not be plugged until spring. Consumer advocate Erin Brockovich says the gas leak is the worst environmental disaster in the US since the BP oil spill.
What are the public health and environmental implications? Who is being held accountable? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
