Recorded at the Lensic Theater in Santa Fe, New Mexico on October 29, 2008.
Lester Brown, whom The Washington Post called “one of the world’s most influential thinkers,” has authored or co-authored over 50 books, thoroughly investigating a variety of issues around global agriculture and economic and environmental sustainability. His most recent book is Plan B 3.0: Mobilizing to Save Civilization. Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum called it, “A great book which should wake up humankind!” In 2001 Brown founded the Earth Policy Institute to provide a vision and a road map for achieving an environmentally sustainable economy. He is the recipient of several awards including a MacArthur Fellowship and the 1994 Blue Planet Prize for his “exceptional contributions to solving global environmental problems.”[audio:http://s3.amazonaws.com/media.lannan.org/podcasts/lester-brown-081029.mp3]
