For more than four months, environmentalist activist Julia Butterfly has been perched 180-feet high in a 1,000-year old redwood tree. In northern California, during the record tree- sitting protest, Ms. Butterfly has withstood the heavy rains and blasting winds of El Nino’s winter storms, as well as harassment from the logging company MAXXAM/ Pacific Lumber which has used searchlights and foghorns to disrupt her sleep.

Guest:

  • Julia Butterfly, environmental activist and memeber of North Coast Earth First!
