Thanks to Steve Kraske for having me on Up to Date on KCUR (Kansas City public radio) today. If you missed it, you can listen to the mp3. In the first half-hour, Steve talks with Sharon Begley from Newsweek about her article “Why We’re So Clueless About Being Green.” In the latter half, I chat with Steve and answer listeners’ questions.
