  • July 21, 2021: The Push For Michigan To Produce More Electric Passenger Vehicles

    The busses and heavy trucks that travel our towns and highway system contribute a significant part of the emissions causing climate change. We are in the midst of transition as manufacturers are moving more toward electric vehicles production. WEMU's David Fair and Charles Griffith, the director of the Ann Arbor-based Ecology Center's climate and energy program discussed the push for Michigan to join others in a commitment to zero out emissions from heavy vehicles by 2050.  For questions or ideas for future show topics, please contact Mary Mathias Lapp.
