In response to the national election and the appointment of people who continuously call into question the validity of science around important topics such as HUMAN CAUSED climate change, a group of passionate volunteers are organizing the Idaho March for Science in Boise on April 22nd, 2017.

This group is engaging and activating people from across the political spectrum to stand up in defense of science and the role it plays in protecting and enhancing our quality of life for all communities. They care about protecting the free exchange of ideas as our society continues to try to solve our most pressing environmental, health, economic, and social problems. Tune in to my conversation with two of the volunteer leaders in this effort in defense of science: Dick Jordan and Kevin Shrumm.

Dick Jordan is a science teacher with 35 years of experience (fun) inspiring the next generation of scientists and environmentalists and Kevin Shrumm is an undergrad student at Boise State studying Geoscience and Education.

The brainchild of Action Jackson, Idaho Youth Education Recycling Partnership ( iYerp),  was started in 2007 to improve our

community and raise funds for Idaho children through recycling metal from construction projects. IYERP is a program of the John William Jackson Fund (JWJF) who works with general contractors in Idaho and beyond to collect metal scrap which is then dropped off at Pacific Steel and Recycling where the proceeds from the metal is donated to the John William Jackson Fund.

Many of us continue to be inspired by the mission of the JWJF and by the energy and passion demonstrated by it’s leader Action Jackson.

Listen to the interview live on Radio Boise on February 4, at 3.00 or you can stream it live at http://radioboise.us/. Podcast is available HERE.

Yesterday on the show we had Justin Schwartz with Studio F3 discussing his passion for healthy, affordable and sustainable residential building. He’ll be leading the effort to organize a Green Home Tour in the Treasure Valley that will be an excellent showcase of sustainable design and construction techniques and products. The 2013 Green Home Tour is planned for sometime in the spring/summer of 2013 and the USGBC Idaho Chapter’s Residential Green Building Committee is seeking volunteers to help plan, organize and execute the Green Home Tour. If you are interested in getting involved please contact Justin Schwartz at justin@footprintformfunction.com.
