Eco-Shrimper: Diane Wilson

When shrimp boat captain Diane Wilson found out chemical companies were dumping five million gallons of toxins every day into the bays around her hometown, she began a one woman environmental battle.

It was a battle that started with a simple town meeting on the issue and led to hunger strikes, death threats and the eventual sinking of her own 42-foot boat on top of underwater discharge pipes.

Join host Jerry Kay, publisher of the Environmental News Network, as we hear all about her new book: Unreasonable Woman: A True Story of Shrimpers, Politicos, Polluters, and the Fight for Seadrift, Texas.
