The Orangutan Project ~ Chef Rosey on Blackberries ~ Barry Rabe on Taxing Oil and Gas
On this Earth Day, we meet Karmele Llano-Sanchez, the veterinary director and executive director of the Orangutan Project, a rescue center in Borneo. It’s featured in the documentary “Operation Orangutan,” which premiers tonight on Nat Geo WILD. (RELATED: NPR's Morning Edition recently did a story on the issue of palm oil farming as it affects orangutan habitat. More on that story HERE.) ~~~ Chef Tim Rosendahl stops by with this week’s food topic, blackberries. ~~~ Barry Rabe is a professor of public policy at the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy at the University of Michigan. He's researching how states tax their oil and gas resources. He recently came to North Dakota to interview lawmakers, and in this interview, he visited with Inside Energy's Emily Guerin on the same day lawmakers introduced a bill to lower North Dakota's oil and gas tax rate.
