Paul Kingsnorth & Friends Discuss “Confessions of a Recovering Environmentalist”


Has environmentalism lost its way? What does sustainability really have to do with a healthy planet? During Orion's latest live web event, Paul Kingsnorth discussed his essay “Confessions of a Recovering Environmentalist” in the January/February 2012 issue of the magazine. According to Kingsnorth, environmentalism has effectively died, its original deep connection to nature lost in the language of science and economics. Kingsnorth is joined by authors Lierre Keith and David Abram.
