Robert Colangelo of GreenSense Radio talks about his latest venture, Green Sense Farms. Located in Portage, Indiana, his operation grows food indoors, using a vertical system that controls light, temperature and nutrient input, allowing year round harvests of local, sustainable produce.
Author, educator and media personality Melinda Myers joins Mike to promote her book, the Midwest Gardener's Handbook, and to encourage folks to practice eco-friendly lawn care as the weather warms. Vicki Nowicki of Liberty Gardens announces the start of a seed-lending library in Downers Grove, which is open to everyone. Robert Colangelo explains how Green Sense Farms grows crops indoors using LED lights in a controlled environment and could change the way we produce food. Kate Sackman from EcoMyths Alliance previews their upcoming collaboration with the Second City to promote science education.

Mike and energy reporter Kari Lydersen talk to him about what has led him to arrive at such a dire prediction and why he thinks it could happen within a couple of decades.

Mike and energy reporter Kari Lydersen quiz Guy McPherson, Professor Emeritus of Natural Resources and Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Arizona, about his conclusion that the human race is on the path to extinction. He writes about it on his blog, Nature Bats Last.
