EarthFix’s Boise-based journalist, Aaron Kunz, has been busy lately sharing his environmental reporting with TV audiences on topics ranging from trash-eating microbes to wind turbines to western sage grouse.
The report above for Dialogue updates one of Kunz’s first reports for Earthfix, on an east Idaho scientist/entrepreneur named Ted Carpenter, who claims he’s come up with a revolutionary way to use microbes to breakdown trash — even styrofroam, oil, and plastic — into waste.
These final two videos, both aired on Idaho Reports, delve into some of the environmental issues expected to play out during the current session of the Idaho Legislature. They focused on topics that include natural gas drilling, which could involve a process similar to fracking, or hydraulic fracturing, wind power, and sage grouse, which may be listed this year under the Endangered Species Act.
