The SS Badger: From Coal to Natural Gas

June 29, 2012

Last summer I had the great fortune of taking a bike trip with some friends across Lake Michigan. While in Luddington I spoke with Laura Mattson of the SS Badger. She talked about the history of our country’s last coal-fueled boat and it’s unique plan to convert to natural gas. Give a listen to this interview which originally aired on 89.7 WUWM during Lake Effect.
