Carbon Captives

Guests: William Vollmann, Author, No Good Alternative: Volume 2 of Carbon Ideologies; Michelle Romero, National Director, Green For All

Fossil fuels have helped bring people out of poverty around the world, and many people working in the industry are proud of their contribution. William Vollmann writes about the lives of laborers and executives in different parts of the vast fossil fuel system. Discussing an alternative path for these communities, National Director of Green for All Michelle Romero advocates, “for some, retraining is a viable option and for others nearing retirement…maybe providing a benefit package that will help.” Explore the lives of those who remain captives of an economy run on carbon.
