The Courant's David Funkhouser today writes about the issue of pollution from wood-burning devices.  WNPR's Northeast Environmental Hub was on top of this last October, with a story by New Hampshire Public Radio's Amy Quinton.  The Hub has been out in front on many stories, including recycling in tough economic times, and this recent story by Vermont Public Radio's John Dillon about a major composting facility that's facing closure.  This project is bringing together public radio stations across New England and New York to report on our shared ecosystem.  It's part of NPR's Local News Initiative, which selected seven stations to host "hubs" that would foster sharing and collaboration in our system.  Check out some more stories from this project, and let me know your thoughts.  Our editor, Nancy Cohen has provided input for most of our environmentally-themed conversations on Where We Live, including our "Environmental A-Team" show with Mark Tercek of the Nature Conservancy, and Yale's Dan Esty.   

What conversations should Where We Live be leading about our environment?  Let us know!
