Listen to a new live streamed Planet Philadelphia on wonderful Gtown Radio 4:00 today! Kay Wood, the host of Planet Philadelphia, has some great interviews lined up – first up is Karen Melton, a local climate change activist who talks 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 and social 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.
