All that snow we're slogging through this month might be a good thing. Snow is water and water replenishes our rivers and streams. The Nature Conservancy's Jeff Opperman joins a science café edition of the Sound of Ideas Monday to tell us how cloudy skies -- like those that blanket Cleveland in winter -- make our region healthy. We'll also talk about the science of sustaining the health of our region’s rivers and lakes, including the fight against toxic algae, Monday at 9 on 90.3.

Would it be possible to build bridges that have the capability of raising and lowering the turbines needed to generate electricity? I suggest this raising of the turbines in order to not interfere with any shipping traffic. Sure the bridges would have to be more stable than an ordinary bridge meaning more costly, but this kind of kills a few birds with one stone. Jobs, clean energy and improved infrastructure.
