The US and oil exporting countries last night succeeded in blocking all action at the Johannesburg Earth Summit on renewable energy. Today on Democracy Now!, we’re going to spend the hour talking about renewable energy and corporate reform.

Paul Hawken is an environmentalist, educator and author of 'Natural Capitalism: Creating the Next Industrial Revolution,' 'The Ecology of Commerce,' and 'Growing a Business'. He is known around the world as one of the leading architects of environmental corporate reform.

He spoke last week at a gathering very different from the United Nations conference in Johannesburg. He spoke at SolFest, a two-day festival in Northern California celebrating renewable energy and sustainable living.
