Host: Darren Weeks


Floods and quakes paint the backdrop for another Earth Day. One of the Earth Day founders had a skeleton in his closet. Failed preditions of doom. The war against western land owners heats up. Also, homeowner hounding, Brexit bickering, monument madness, wilderness gone wild, wandering wolves, grasses for sage grouse, "special places" of the interior, conservation course corrections, boxes on polls, gun grabbing politicians, and phone calls throughout the show.
