Cold Weather & Radon

Listening to Minnesota Public Radio this morning I heard a great report on radon in the cold weather. It was very informative.

Here’s the blurb for the program:

Extreme cold can have unusual effects in some unusual places. It can cause more radon gas to enter homes, and it can kill off tree pests. MPR’s Cathy Wurzer spoke first with Bill Angell, professor, and housing specialist at the University of Minnesota, about radon. Then, she spoke with Lee Frelich, who studies forests and is Director of the Center for Hardwood Ecology at the University of Minnesota, about tree pests.

You can listen to the program online.
