Cool Solutions

Monthly

Climate change is global but climate solutions are local.  Meet communities taking climate action and learn what they're doing to cut climate pollution.  Each month we'll explore a powerful climate solution, introduce you to the people making it happen, and share information you can use to bring it home to your community.  

Hosted by Wendy Ring and Brian Curtis on the first Wednesday of the Month at 1:30pm.
