WFPL’s Erica Peterson has something to say. From coal ash to endangered mussels,  Erica has brought in-depth reporting on the environment to WFPL’s airwaves and website for the last year. Now there’s more. Her new blog Smokestack will collect her reporting as well as analysis on the most interesting environmental news items from around the world. 

Energy, pollution and climate change are some of the most pressing issues facing the world today, and our community is uniquely affected by all of them. Why the name smokestack? Smokestacks represent energy and economic development. They also represent pollution. You’ll read about both of these topics—as well as others—on Smokestack.

You can follow Smokestack here, or get to it from any page on WFPL.org by clicking on “Environment” in the navigation bar.
