This kind of behavior is the bedrock of sustainability 7.2.2018 GreenBiz.com
Breaking news: Sustainability is hard. Making even modest progress is daunting. Working effectively in this domain requires us to think not only about the scientific, technical and organizational challenges, but also about human psychology and behavior — others' and our own.The good news is, you don’t have to run an energy company or a government to make a difference. But sustainability and climate action require executing some of the most difficult behaviors in the human repertoire: proactive behaviors, those that are more forward-looking and change-inducing than others.

The Battle of the Georgetown Mill 24.1.2018 American Prospect
This article appears in the Winter 2018 issue of The American Prospect magazine.

His friends died, he won and lost union elections, and he challenged management to hire more black craftsmen. In later years, Green’s hips gave out, victims of contorting his body into crevices of the mill. His buddies called him Fred Sanford, after the television series’ title character, who wobbled more than walked.

The following article could only be published thanks to support from our readers. To fund more stories like it, make a donation to Truthout by clicking here! With Donald Trump in the White House, the prospects for fighting climate change have never been any bleaker in the US. Yet there are options available to state governments to move forward with the greening of the economy even without federal support. This point is made crystal clear in  two studies  produced recently by economist Robert Pollin and some of his colleagues at the Political Economy Research Institute (PERI) at ...
