Actions we can take to fight climate change now - Planet Philadelphia 4-5 pm today Print E-mail
Friday, 03 August 2018


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
