I got to interview one of the biggest brains in life:  Brian Welsh, who among other things is the publisher of Mother Earth News.  This guy is a heavyweight in Green media and it was a privilege to speak to him.

Brian and I talked about the challenges in reporting on the environmental and sustainability movements.  It can be tricky to make a scientist sound entertaining or an activist sound sane, depending on who you’re talking to.  There’s a lot of politicizing of Green, which can narrow the audience.  The urge of so many people to slip into ideology and rhetoric limits Green tremendously.  Brian has been dealing with these challenges for a long time and he’s got a wonderful take on it.
