Description

Faced with climate change, many counsel "going green" by buying organic food or a "clean" car. But can we rely on consumerism as a solution to the very problems it has helped cause? Heather Rogers travels from Paraguay to Indonesia, via the Hudson Valley, Detroit and London, to investigate green capitalism, and argues for solutions that are not mere palliatives or distractions, but ways of engaging with how we live and the kind of world we want to live in.
