Greening the Ghetto - Inspirational New Yorker Article

Thanks to @timoreilly on Twitter for this lead: "A great New Yorker piece about Van Jones and Green for All: http://twurl.nl/id0ti6. This guy has it all: message, presence, vision."

The article is called "Greening the Ghetto" and is a must-read for those who care about all levels of society, who are worried about the economic crisis we are in, and who may be placing environmental issues on the back burner.

Green for All The goal is to get the greenest solutions to the poorest people.

I loved this quotation: ?I?m not looking for the points of difference. I?m looking for the points of commonality. I?ve trained my mind so that people can say twenty-seven things that might be objectionable, but as soon as they say one, that twenty-eighth thing, that?s in the right direction, that?s where I?m going to go in the conversation."

I want to check out the book The Green Collar Economy.
