This month’s guest, V.B. Price, is a poet, human rights and environmental columnist, magazine and newspaper editor, architectural critic and, presently, a member of the faculty at UNM. In his just released book, The Orphaned Land: New Mexico’s Environment Since the Manhattan Project, Price assembles a compendium of the deterioration of the state’s environment in the last 50 years previously available only in scattered newspaper articles and government reports. Price includes research on hazardous wastes, munitions testing, radioactive emissions, and many other issues that affect the quality of New Mexico’s land, water, and air. So, please join host Stephen Spitz and author V.B. Price for a realistic, and eye-opening, perspective on the problems surrounding New Mexico’s environmental health and resources.
