And we'll revisit my conversation with Alex Steffan.  Alex is a journalist and author who runs the organization World Changing.com.   The site practices what he calls "Solutions based journalism" on the environment and has become the go-to source for forward thinking solutions on climate change and sustainability.  Alex joins us to tell us about this new vision for journalism and how to build a brighter future.
