The Green Collar Economy: How One Solution Can Fix Our Two Biggest Problems

The Green Collar Economy: How One Solution Can Fix Our Two Biggest ProblemsVan Jones
Provocative, personal, and inspirational, The Green Collar Economy is not a dire warning but rather a substantive and viable plan for solving the biggest issues facing the country¬?the failing economy and our devastated environment. From a distance, it appears that these two problems are separate, but when we look closer, the connection becomes unmistakable.

In The Green Collar Economy, acclaimed activist and political advisor Van Jones delivers a real solution that both rescues our economy and saves the environment. The economy is built on and powered almost exclusively by oil, natural gas, and coal¬?all fast-diminishing nonrenewable resources. As supplies disappear, the price of energy climbs and nearly everything becomes more expensive. With costs and unemployment soaring, the economy stalls. Not only that, when we burn these fuels, the greenhouse gases they create overheat the atmosphere. As the headlines make clear, total climate chaos looms over us. The bottom line: we cannot continue with business as usual. We cannot drill and burn our way out of these dual dilemmas.

Instead, Van Jones illustrates how we can invent and invest our way out of the pollution-based grey economy and into the healthy new green economy. Built by a broad coalition deeply rooted in the lives and struggles of ordinary people, this path has the practical benefit of both cutting energy prices and generating enough work to pull the U.S. economy out of its present death spiral.

Rachel Carson's 1963 landmark book Silent Spring was the pivotal ecological examination of the last century. Now, rising above the impenetrable debate over the environment and the economy, Van Jones's The Green Collar Economy delivers a timely and essential call to action for this new century.

Siobhan Live Green Team AwardKathy Hoopmann
Australian author Kathy Hoopmann, who lives in Dubai, and Donna Acheson-Juillet, a Canadian artist, have produced a children¬?s picture book, Omar¬?s Goats, written to encourage environmental awareness in children. Omar is a goat herder who is so tired of the pollution he sees daily that he gets the local wildlife to help him clean it up. The illustrations visually emphasize the seriousness of the problem faced in the desert today. As the story unfolds, and the rubbish is slowly cleared away, children delight as the true untarnished beauty of the land is revealed. Omar¬?s Goats has recently been released in English and in Arabic by Jerboa Books here in Dubai.

To complement the message in Omar¬?s Goats, Kathy and Donna have also written a teacher¬?s handbook which gives factual information about environmental issues and includes classroom activity suggestions, a section encouraging parents to get involved, plus photocopiable activity sheets for the students. This too is available in English and Arabic.
