Has environmentalism lost its way? What does sustainability really have to do with a healthy planet?
Paul Kingsnorth’s essay from the first Dark Mountain book ‘Confessions of a Recovering Environmentalist’ caused quite a stir, and has helped stimulate, or egg on, a wider discussion about the future of green politics, and if it has one. This audio discussion, organised by Orion magazine, sees Paul discussing the essay and what flows from it with American writers David Abram and Lierre Keith, in January 2012.
