Salt Lake City, Utah – Wind, solar and geothermal energy are often touted as clean and green. But even renewable energy sources require land and water and can take a toll on wildlife. On Friday, Jon Hoekstra and Joe Fargione with The Nature Conservancy join guest host Jennifer Napier-Pearce to talk about what they've termed energy sprawl and how to minimize the costs associated with clean energy development.

  • Jonathan Hoekstra of The Nature Conservancy will be in Utah next Tuesday at the Grand County Library in Moab and next Wednesday, March 16 at the Salt Lake City Main Library as part of the Utah Museum of Natural History's "Nature of Things" lecture series. More information here
