Bill Resnick talks with Jim Cook about Just Transitions

 

The "Just Transition" is to that new economy necessary to avoid environmental cataclysm, a transition that creates good work and income for all and cleans up the environmental ruination of low income particularly people of color communities. That is, Just Transition means building an economy run towards economic and social justice.

Bill and Jim discuss upcoming events:
