Product description

From Amazon

With Good News for a Change, scientist and environmentalist David Suzuki sheds his town crier image and, along with co-author Holly Dressel, accentuates the positive. Good News chronicles those individuals and companies who have come to terms with their place in the schematics of life. Together they have found not only better solutions, but profitable ones. The Better Buildings Partnership in Toronto, for example, is a mandated consortium to retrofit existing mega-structures. Not only have the BBP projects saved consumable energy with proper insulation and ventilation systems, thus financial savings, but the BBP itself has created thousands of jobs.

One of the most telling statements comes from an environmental ethicist who provides workshops to companies. In these workshops, employees are asked to sustain a fictional finite world. The participants surprisingly devise ingenious environmentally positive solutions. As Suzuki and Dressel recount, once placed in small groups, even those who are corporate-oriented seem to know what is "right." Yet these very participants, as part of the larger corporate entity, balk at the same solutions in the real world. The authors conclude, "As a society … we are not very bright." But there is hope, they say, in small steps. --Tim Tokaryk

From the Publisher
