This week’s guest has been watching and writing about the sustainability world for over 30 years and he provided us with some unique perspectives. 

Joel Makower is a journalist and the chairman and co-founder of GreenBiz, a media and events company focusing on the intersection of business and the clean economy. He had a syndicated newspaper column, he contributes to the radio show, Marketplace, and he has authored over a dozen books

This episode really feels more like we had a third host than a guest. He also brought up new subjects for the podcast, including, what a green consumer is, criticisms of the sustainability industry, and changing economic systems.
