Beyond Extreme Energy (BXE) activists have been fasting since Labor Day in an effort to get the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to stop rubber stamping requests for gas pipeline permits. The hunger strikers are a dedicated group of people, ages 20 - 70+, that has tried just about everything else, including more than 100 arrests, to get FERC employees to do the right thing for people, wildlife and the environment that suffer with each new permit.
Talkupy will go live via telephone with the hunger strikers with the help of past show guest Jimmy Betts, who is also fasting, at 2 pm ET Friday, Sept. 18.
