Even in a community whose most famous building is literally made out of coal, leaders are seeking a new way forward.

It’s pretty cool to have the president speak at your graduation. It’s even cooler when the prez gets fired up about dinosaur flatulence and climate deniers.

What happens to the Great Lakes when winter ice doesn't melt: http://j.mp/1jFyrGM
