Listen to a podcast of the Planet Philadelphia that was streamed on G-town Radio May 6, 2016 with host Kay Wood’s interviews with Karen Melton, a local climate change activist who talked about her experiences with the Citizens' Climate Lobby and their proposal for a carbon fee and dividend system that’s getting a lot of support across the political spectrum. The second interview is with Dr. Alison LaBonte about Department of Energy’s (DOE) Wave Energy Prize competition. According to some estimates wave energy could meet much of US energy needs if we can solve the technical hurdles. The DOE’s Wave Energy Prize is designed to help work out the best technological innovations to do just that.
Please do tune back in to G-town Radio at 4:00 Friday May 20th for a dynamic interview about sea level rise with Professor Benjamin Horton of Rutgers University who tells us about the absolute urgency about acting on climate change now on another great Planet Philadelphia.
