In this election season, most politicians talk only about short-term gains in the realm of the environment, but growing community of activists, scientists, and health practitioners around the country has been focusing more and more on the long-term implications of human interaction with the environment. Last week thousands of these concerned people gathered in San Rafael, CA, at the Bioneers Conference, to share information and insight for the future that tends to get left off of the mainstream political radar.

We join the Bioneers Conference to hear the words of Michael Lerner. Lerner has been one of the leading pioneers in the creation of the contemporary environmental health movement. President and founder of the groundbreaking Commonweal health and environmental research institute. He is the author of Choices in Healing: Integrating the Best of Conventional and Complementary Approaches to Cancer, and he is co-founder of Health Care Without Harm, the highly effective coalition of medical professionals dedicated to eliminating dioxin and mercury from the medical waste stream.
