VW Settlement, A Check On New Oil and Gas Rules, Film Portrays A Human Born On Mars

Listen Now

The Volkswagen settlement means not just money for car owners and auto dealers but also for the state to pay for clean energy projects. Then, communities quarrel with new oil and gas operations despite state rules intended to ease the tension. Those rules also helped fund a forthcoming study of the potential health effects of living near drilling rigs. Also, the new film "The Space Between Us" is about the first human born on Mars, who wants to travel to Earth. And, an opera written especially for children.
