MADISON (WKOW) -- Last month, President Barack Obama unveiled his Climate Action Plan, but what the impact could be in Wisconsin is still unclear.
"We're still very dependent on coal, and again I think we have to start looking to diversifying our energy portfolio for the future," Radloff said.
President Obama did offer a pitch for replacing coal with natural gas, something Radloff thinks is a good idea for now.
"The president wants to allow states to have some flexibility to start to implement these changes," Radloff said. "Natural gas prices right now are low, they may not stay low, but for now they're low, so that's a good transition fuel as we start to move away from coal and move more to renewable sources. I think long term we have to be a little careful because, as an international commodity, it's very volatile in price and very volatile to price spikes."
Radloff joined us on 27 News at 5 on Wednesday.
