Residents, elected officials, and climate activists have concerns about what the use of fossil fuels will mean for the state, especially as scientists say we should be phasing out our fossil fuel consumption. Today, we'll hear from reporters about their perspective on the TVA Board of Directors, which oversees the utility, and what the fossil fuel expansion will mean for Tennesseans. We'll also speak with two organizers who believe TVA could be doing a better job of protecting the environment while still providing electricity. 

Later, we'll talk with the Black Nashville Assembly to learn more about what measures they want to see to ensure safety for young people in our city.

This episode was produced by Elizabeth Burton and Khalil Ekulona.
