Michel Gelobter on Designing Our Way Out of Global Warming (Video)

Michel Gelobter is a climate strategist, founder of Cooler, and is a big name in activism for global climate solutions. He was also a speaker at Compostmodern on Saturday. Click through to hear what he has to say about the policymakers in Washington, and designing our way out of our climate mess. First, Gelobter discusses the "design"-oriented team President Obama has chosen, and how this group of movers and shakers can influence our movement for sustainability.

He then goes on to talk about designing based on carbon footprints, and why carbon offsets are - at least for now - a good thing.
