THIS WEEK: In the Shadow of the Smokestacks (Part I): Richmond, California. Richmond, California is one of the many communities in America where economic and environmental injustice intersect. Back in 1901, Standard Oil moved in and built what currently operates as the Chevron Richmond Refinery, and since then, the city of Richmond has literally grown up in the shadow of the smokestacks. Alex Wise speaks with Greg Karras, a senior scientist at Communities for a Better Environment, an organization that advocates for working-class communities like Richmond.
