“Shades of Green” Environmental Talk Radio on KOOP 91.7 (EPA Clean Power Plan w/ Sierra Club & Friends)

July 20 @ 5:33 am

Join co-hosts, John Hoffner, Reed Sternberg, & Stacy Guidry, for this week's edition of "Shades of Green", Austin's only environmental talk radio program, on KOOP 91.7FM and streaming live at www.koop.org!

Thursday, we'll discuss the Obama Administration's proposed Clean Power Plan that will reduce carbon emissions at power plants across Texas and the US and increase development of clean energy. 

Texas is the number one producer of wind power in the country, and the state has large capacities for solar energy development. The Clean Power Plan allows states to take advantage of renewable resources to create jobs and save customers money.

The Clean Power Plan will not only help slow the advance of climate change but will also protect public health. Coal pollution in the United States results in more than $100 billion annually in health costs and more than 12,000 emergency room visits per year.

 

Our guest will be Dave Cortez from the Texas Sierra Club and others to be announced.
