About Stop Saving the Planet!

We've been "saving the planet" for decades!...And environmental crises just get worse. All this hybrid driving and LEED building and carbon trading seems to accomplish little to nothing--and low-income communities continue to suffer the worst consequences.

Why aren't we cleaning up the toxic messes and rolling back climate change? And why do so many Americans hate environmentalists?

Jenny Price says Enough already! with this short, fun, fierce manifesto for an environmentalism that is hugely more effective, a whole lot fairer, and infinitely less righteous. She challenges you, corporate sustainability officers, and the EPA to think and act completely anew--and to start right now--to ensure a truly habitable future.

"When keeping it real goes right--in this moment of reckoning, Jenny Price calls us out to call us in and does so with humor, insight, and an in-your-face attitude that is informed and dare I say, hopeful about our capacity to change how we think, see, and 'do' green." --Carolyn Finney, author of Black Faces, White Spaces

Jenny Price will sign and personalize copies of Stop Saving the Planet! to be picked up or mailed out!
