Then I can go and try to solve all the other problems we face today in our lives.We need to pay attention to our environment, our lovely home will not survive if we keep up this torture.Thank you. Giving away books is a good activity which should be continued. John strikes at the heart of the issue in “The Green Collar Economy”. The two problems of poverty and environmental crises are really needed to be addressed as soon as possible. The ideas presented in the book are powerful and speak for the realistic approach of John.Samreen M Bolee.com Comments are closed.
