In Canada, trillion-dollar corporations and countries are desperately searching for a way to ship dirty Tar Sands crude, after the Obama administration said "No" to the Keystone XL pipeline.
They want to build a new pipeline across the Rocky Mountains, across countless rivers and wilderness, across native lands.
And two Texas billionaires are plotting to turn the once green city of Vancouver into a major oil shipping port.
They want to make more billions polluting the atmosphere and changing the climate forever.
You will hear three speakers in a packed public meeting promise neither plot will succeed.
Then we'll take to the streets of San Francisco, with as-it-happens audio during the Occupy Wall Street West protests.
Our Bay Area correspondent Karen Nyhus interviews environmentalist Ananda Tan as he waits with locked arms to be arrested.
Then the risky radio the mainstream won't dare: you are there as the crowd microphone chants the words of Abraham Entin from Move To Amend, and author activist Ted Nace, on the Court House steps, demanding justice. That's in our second half hour.
From tanker mania to Wall Street greed, I'm Alex Smith, and this is Radio Ecoshock.
