Green Visions: another reason to be excited about the Duluth to the Cities route

If Minnesota is going to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80% in the next 30 years, we need to take a hard look at transportation.  Our gas-powered vehicles are responsible for most of it.

Next week, the Minnesota Department of Transportation will host a public meeting at AICHO to look at some possible solutions and get ideas and feedback on a program called Pathways to Decarbonizing Transportation.

Sessions will be held in the afternoon and evening so folks can attend even if they're working that day, and although it's not the point of the get-togethers, chances are organizers will mention that you can now road-trip in your electric car safely and reliably between Duluth and the Cities - and I-35 has a brand-new designation as a zero emissions corridor to prove it.

More information about electric vehicle charging stations is available here.

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
