The Progressive Commentary Hour – Guest Derrick Jensen

Bright Green Environmental Lies – How the Environmental Movement Lost Its Way

Derrick Jensen has become one of the nation’s leading voices of cultural and environmental dissent, who writes about civilization’s devastating impact upon the environment and the natural world, and our society’s denial of that fact. Utne Reader listed Derrick among the 50 visionaries changing the world. In sharp contrast to environmental optimists who believe working within the corporate system will offset the tenuous planetary balance threatened by climate change, for many years Derrick has advocated for “dismantling of civilization” which can include radical dissent as well as imparting wisdom to our children.  Derrick has written many influential books. His recently released “Bright Green Lies: How the Environmental Movement Lost Its Way and What We Can Do About It” is perhaps the most important publication to date the exposes the shortcomings, fallacies, and self deceit among the leading green voices and organizations who dominate the public lectern preaching about climate change and placing faith in technological solutions and new habits of green consumerism. A new documentary film with the same title and based upon Derrick’s and his co-authors’ book will premier on Earth Day – April 22. Derrick also hosts a weekly radio program, Resistance Radio, on the Progressive Radio Network every Sunday evening at 6:00 pm Eastern time.   He holds a degree in mineral engineering physics from the Colorado School of Mines and a masters in creative writing from Eastern Washington University. Derrick’s websites are DerrickJensen.org and BrightGreenLies.com
