On Sound Bites, our series about our food and our world, we begin the hour with a look at former Governor and current Presidential hopeful Martin O’Malley’s record on the Environment. With: Tommy Landers, Maryland and DC Policy Director for the Chesapeake Climate Action Network; and Gerald Winegrad, attorney and Adjunct Professor at the University of Maryland School of Public Policy, where he has taught a graduate course on Chesapeake Bay Restoration since 1988.

Next we talk with Gunpowder Riverkeeper Theaux Le Gardeur about a Baltimore County judge’s halting of completion of a 21-mile natural gas pipeline through northern Baltimore and Harford Counties. The judge cited a failure by state regulators to protect environmentally sensitive waterways in the project’s path.
