As fall sweeps through the state, it brings with it a wave of color as the leaves turn. Join us as we talk with a chemistry professor about what’s behind this process. We also look ahead to the Wisconsin Science Festival and discuss other headlines in the science world.

What are you seeing as the leaves change? Are you planning on taking part in the Wisconsin Science Festival? What do you think of moves to roll back the Clean Power Plan, an Obama-era policy meant to curb greenhouse gas emissions from power plants? What science news has caught your attention lately?

Get involved with our conversation by emailing, posting on the Ideas Network Facebook page and tweeting at @lmeillershow.
