Fuel cells, windmills, solar panels: some say they're more than a source of energy - they could be the future of economic growth. On The Sound of Ideas, we'll talk about current efforts to put Northeast Ohio at the center of the alternative energy industry. Also, we'll hear about the new proposal to fix school funding in Ohio and we'll meet the man who's been put in charge of making sure economic growth includes success for minorities, too.
