In this conversation, Peter and Greg will discuss what the experts aren’t telling us about the root causes of manmade climate change, as well as beacons of hope for the future—including communities on an accelerated path to true sustainability. These two sustainability thinkers and doers will explore how green lifestyles are just as important as green buildings and that radical changes to our spending habits are needed if we’re to avoid the worst outcomes of climate change.
