Earth Day Report
We check into a local Earth Day rally, and talk to the young adults in attendance about what it means to be an environmentalist. While we're there, we chat with some scientists who study the Upper Mississippi River bioregion.
Car Free!
It can be done. Car dependence is a major economic burden and a huge source of stress. We discuss the whys and hows.
The Lorax
For Obbie, reading this classic by Dr. Seuss has been an Earth Day tradition for most of his life. A couple of key passages are read during the show.
  Wind Farms
Getting electricity from wind does have its place in a sustainable civilization, but it's not a completely benign source of energy. Many people are resisting the installation of wind farms in their neighborhoods. Obbie muses on this developement, and reacts to a couple of recent newspaper articles on the topic.

  Non-toxic Cleaning Products
Many of the cleaners that we use around our houses are quite toxic. It's really easy to make our own non-toxic cleaners with stuff that most of us have around.
