Q&A with an environmental foot soldier
Norris McDonald is the president of AAEA
What alot of folks don't know or understand is that many of the environmental issues in the world are directly related to socio-economic issues. Poor people have no clout and thus are quite often stuck with the shitiest living conditions.
I worked for Louisiana Citizen Action (now known as US Action) for a little while and the people that lived in the closest proximity to the biggest pollutors we almost always some of the poorest people in the region.
