The TH Interview: Van Jones—The Green Collar Economy (Part One)



Do you love your hybrid, fear for the plight of the polar bears, dying to put solar panels on your roof? Then you might be a member of the eco-elite. Not that there's anything wrong with you, says Van Jones, but for a green economy to be truly effective, it needs to be more inclusive.
This is the thrust of The Green Collar Economy, Van Jones' new book. The very quotable Jones is up there among the world's brightest, seeking a green economy "that is strong enough to pull millions of people out of poverty."
