In this episode, Derrick Jensen discusses his current project "Bright Green Lies," a book that exposes the misconceptions and deceptions surrounding "renewal" energy sources (solar, wind, bio-fuels, etc.), and how the underlying ethos of the global environmentalist movement has been hijacked by the "green" energy faction of the industrial economy. Derrick strips these "bright green lies" bare, and asks for activists in the environmental movement to pledge their loyalty to the living earth itself, and not to human industrial civilization and the culture that attempts to rationalize and excuse industrial civilization's excesses, pushing this planet's living systems to the brink of irreversible collapse.
Derrick Jensen is an environmental activist and author of well over a dozen books, including Endgame, The Culture of Make Believe, A Language Older That Words, The Myth of Human Supremacy, as well countless articles and essays that address a more radical understanding of human civilization and it's impact on the living planet we all share.
