Today’s segment of ‘River to River’ on Iowa Public Radio discussed how the EPA’s new carbon emissions standard will affect Iowa.

Jerry Schnoor, University of Iowa environmental engineering professor and CGRER co-director, contributed to the program as did producer and Little Village Magazine editor Adam Burke, who produced a documentary about air quality in Muscatine (pictured above) where in 2012 residents filed a lawsuit against the Grain Processing plant.
