Many of us call ourselves environmentalists because we recycle our trash, maybe cut back on our driving and shop for energy-efficient products. We think these our changes in behavior are making a difference, but Tom Athanasiou disagrees. In his new book, Divided Planet: The Ecology of Rich and Poor, Athanasiou argues that only radical social and economic changes will reverse the disastrous destruction of our environment.
TOM ATHANASIOU, author of DIVIDED PLANET, has also written for the Nation, the San Francisco Chronicle and many environmental publications.
