We all want to do the right thing when it comes to the environment. But when does doing right mean doing wrong? As Heather Rogers found when researching her book Green Gone Wrong, many aspects of our growing “green economy” have created an economic vs. environmental dilemma for those whom it’s meant to benefit. One example? The market for bio-fuels, which has led to clear-cutting of the Indonesian rain forest. This week on Town Hall Journal, we reprise a 2010 visit from author Heather Rogers, who asks: can we go green without causing the blues?
