In late August of 2018, protestors briefly halted work at the Humboldt Redwood Company's mill in Scotia. Tom Wheeler hosted Thursday Night Talk on Sept. 06 to examine whether this is a new skirmish in the Timber War and whether there was ever a Timber War to begin with. Wheeler's guests include Greg King, Executive Director of the Siskiyou Land Conservancy, Darren Speece, historian and author of Defending Giants: The Redwood Wars and the Transformation of American Environmental Politics, and Rob DiPerna of the Enivornmental Protection and Information Center (EPIC.)
