Sound Bites: Fracking | Phosphorous Management Tool | African Fried Rice

frackingMarch 10, 2015 – Segment 3

In our latest installment of our series about our food and our world, Sound Bites, we begin the hour with a debate on fracking in Maryland, with: Drew Cobbs, Executive Director, Maryland Petroleum Council; and Mike Tidwell, Founder and Director of the Chesapeake Climate Action Network, and author of The Ravaging Tide: Strange Weather, Future Katrinas and the Race to Save America’s Coastal Cities.

Then we hear an update on the Phosphorous Management Tool, in light of Maryland Governor Larry Hogan’s proposal to curb poultry manure runoff from Eastern Shore farms, with Maryland State Senator Paul Pinksy (Democrat-District 22), Vice Chair of the Education, Health, and Environmental Affairs Committee and sponsor of SB 0257, “Agriculture – Nutrient Management – Phosphorus Management Tool.”

We close out the show with a tasty treat, a recipe for African Fried Rice from Michael Twitty, Culinary Historian of African and African American Foodways and blogger at Afroculinaria.
