On this week's Moyers & Company, biologist, mother and activist Sandra Steingraber explains why she was willing to go to jail for blocking access to the construction of a storage and transportation facility involved in the controversial process of fracking. Steingraber has become internationally known for building awareness about toxins she says are threatening our children's health by contaminating our air, water and food. She talks to Bill about these "toxic trespassers," and how we must act to stop them.
With government captured by the very industries it's supposed to regulate, Steingraber has lost patience with politicians and corporations, but says our kids need to know "mom is on the job" of preventing destruction to the environment.
Bill Moyers (now retired) hosted a weekly hour of compelling conversation about the state of American democracy, featuring a range of scholars, activists, scientists, and newsmakers.
