Ben Jealous: Healing Parables for the Environmental Movement

Season 4 Episode 402 | 26m 46s

The Earth's temperature is rising and time is running out to change direction according to the IPCC. But veteran organizer/strategist Ben Jealous (formerly of the NAACP) sees history as being replete with examples of humans doing the unpredictable in the toughest moments. It’s that perspective, and those stories compiled in his new book, that Jealous brings to his job as head of the Sierra Club.
