Kraft on coal: Prof. Emeritus is featured expert on WPR program

Prof. Emeritus Michael Kraft, Public and Environmental Affairs, was the featured expert Wednesday (March 26) for a weekly Wisconsin Public Radio segment on the Joy Cardin Show.

Kraft explored the question with fill-in host John Munson and call-in guests during the 7 a.m. hour, discussing whether EPA regulations and booming natural gas production spell the end of the line for coal.
