Eco Barons

While many people remain paralyzed by the scope of Earth's environmental woes, eco barons— a new and largely unheralded generation of Rockefellers and Carnegies— are having spectacular success saving forests and wild-lands, pulling endangered species back from the brink, and pioneering the clean and green technologies needed if life and civilization are to endure. Pulitzer Prize-winning author Edward Humes’ new book Eco Barrons looks at the efforts of this new class.
