Jan Haaken talks with Emily Johnston about the trial in Minnesota last month where she and two other climate activists enlisted the Necessity Defense in a landmark jury trial.  In October of 2016 Emily was one of the five "valve turners" who together instigated shutdown of all the tar sands bitumen pipelines coming into the United States from Canada. Emily is a writer, activist, and co-founder of 350 Seattle.
