Environmental Racism?

Well, the only reason that we have the unsustainable accounting that we have right now is because incinerators, dumping grounds, and sacrifice zones were put where poor people live.

The civil rights movement took several decades. The women's rights movement took several decades. Other environmental movements are taking several decades.

You may have noticed there's this jackass in the White House that's not letting anything happen, whether you're talking about health care or getting out of the war or fixing the energy crisis or solving global warming or getting the economy to work. So right now nothing's happening.

You've got to put a price on carbon; that's got to be a top priority for the new administration.

That's going to be called "green-collar work" or "green work"—we're going to fight over the definition.
