It's the air conditioning for your home, energy for your microwaved dinner, even the charge for the Chevy Volt in your driveway. In Ohio, it's likely powered by coal. Tuesday morning on the Sound of Ideas we look at the President's new climate change initiative including his demand for reduced carbon dioxide emissions from power plants. But what's the fallout here if plants have to switch fuels or even close? And can renewable sources provide enough electricity to pick up the slack, if coal power in Ohio is trimmed? We'll generate some answers Tuesday morning at 9:00.
