1st Friday Focus on the Environment: Michigan's Energy Future
On the first Friday of every month, WEMU Morning Edition Host David Fair partners with Michigan League of Conservation voters Executive Director Lisa Wozniak. Together they invite a guest to spend 20-minutes discuss a topic of environmental importance.
This month, our guest is Dan Scripps. Dan is a former State Representative and current President of the Michigan Energy Innovation Business Council. Today's conversation centers on progress that has been made in both energy efficiency and renewable energy usage in the state, where we are going next, and how we'll get there.
Michigan's Energy Future: That's the topic on WEMU's First Friday Focus on the Environment.
