In the first segment of today's show, Nicky DeFord with Vail Resorts join hosts Chris Cherniak and Nell Larson to talk about Vail's ongoing efforts in environmental sustainability. In the second segment, Stephanie Dolmat-Connell of the University of Utah and Lisa Yoder of Summit County joined the show to talk about the University's "Community Solar" program. Finally, Nell and Chris share why it's a bad idea to leave your car running, unattended, with the air conditioner on, just to keep your dog cool.
