Jodi Brandt

On the Jan. 2, Jodi Brandt was interviewed on WBEZ Chicago Worldview about the externalities associated with sand extraction. Sand is a necessary natural resource for a variety of human uses, from urbanization to fracking.

“There are often devastating consequences suffered by people and ecosystems as a result of sand mining, and like many natural resources, the people suffering the consequences of sand exploitation are not the same people as those who benefit from sand consumption,” she explained.

You can listen to the entire 17-minute interview on the WBEZ Chicago website.
