Increasing Electricity Costs And Air Pollution On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, electricity costs in West Virginia have grown faster than any surrounding state, according to a report by environmental consulting firm Downstream Strategies. Curtis Tate spoke with one of the authors of the report, Joey James, about what’s driving those increases, and what other states are doing differently.

Also, in this show, the Allegheny Front, based in Pittsburgh, is a public radio program that reports on environmental issues in the region. We listen to their story about air pollution and misinformation around it.
