Hi Everyone,

I did this editorial cartoon back in 2014 on congressional inaction on helping do something about climate change. Not sure anything has improved since then. However, on today’s Planet Philadelphia, we have a number of Temple students who have some pretty good ideas on what we can do right here in Philly to make things better. So tune in 4-5 pm today to Planet Philadelphia at 92.9 M WGGT-LP and gtownradio.com.

Have a great rest of your summer,

Kay Wood

Producer and Host of Planet Philadelphia

Plastic has innumerable uses in our modern world, yet at the same time we’re drowning in plastic waste that’s dangerous to our health and the health of our planet. What should we do about it? Tune in 4-5 pm today, 5/4/18, to Planet Philadelphia environmental radio show to find out about what we can do, as the guests discuss new, environmentally sensitive approaches to waste:

She specializes in group empowerment, leadership and shifting the culture of the work force.
