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. Can we go green without causing the blues?
Speakers: Heather Rogers, Author, Green Gone Wrong: How Our Economy is Undermining the Environmental Revolution; Andrew Card, President & CEO, American Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (TOWN HALL Vault, 1995); Interview with Ed Begley, Jr., actor and environmental activist
