Video: Harvey Wasserman on Climate Bill, Hemp, Nukes, Teabaggery, and Solartopia

Harvey Wasserman spoke in Charlottesville, Va., on April 19, 2010. He discussed past activist successes and new strategies, and the vision of his book Solartopia, as well as the concerns expressed in his recent popular article "Will the Climate Bill Nuke Earth Day?" Wasserman laid out five key steps to fix the mess we’re in. You’ll want to hear them. Hint: one has to do with corporate power and another with wars.
