On today’s Houston Matters, we continue our week-long series exploring "The State of Houston" with a conversation about the environment in Greater Houston. We talk with News 88.7 Energy and Environment Reporter Dave Fehling. We look at concerns about clean air and clean water, new efforts to monitor chemical releases, ongoing disputes over landfills and other encroachment of our urban landscape into the rural landscape, and much more.

And we hear from a Houston man who decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a doctor.
