The Environment in Focus
- Hosted by Tom Pelton
The Environment in Focus is a weekly perspective on the issues and people changing Maryland's natural world. There's a story behind every bend of the Chesapeake Bay's 11,684 miles of shoreline, in every abandoned coal mine in the Appalachian Mountains, in every exotic beetle menacing our forests and in every loophole snuck into pollution control laws in Annapolis. Tom Pelton gives you a tour of this landscape every Wednesday at 7:46 a.m. and 5:45 p.m.
Tom Pelton is a national award-winning environmental journalist, formerly with The Baltimore Sun. He is the author of the book, The Chesapeake in Focus: Transforming the Natural World, published by Johns Hopkins University Press. Pelton is also Director of Communications at the Environmental Integrity Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated to holding polluters and governments accountable to protect public health.
The Environment in Focus is independently owned and distributed by Environment in Focus Radio to WYPR and other stations. The program is sponsored by the Abell Foundation, which is working to enhance the quality of life in Baltimore and in Maryland. The views expressed are solely Pelton's.
