Our recent interviews with environmental big-wigs Paul Hawken and Lester Brown show two very different approaches to saving the planet. On one hand, Paul Hawken finds hope in the momentum of grassroots movements, many individuals coming together for a cause they believe in. On the other, Lester Brown says that no matter how many individuals buy energy efficient light bulbs, real change is up to the government. History shows that both government policy and individual motivation is necessary (that’s how we won both world wars)—and while we look towards this year’s elections with hope for government responsibility, last year’s Sustainable Living Fair in Ft. Collins proves that independent, grassroots motivation is alive and thriving! Alex King’s video of the event includes an excerpt from our interview with Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman, event organizer Amy Goodman and a host of indie businesses working towards sustainability.
