"Corporations profit off climate change, natural disaster devastate neighborhoods, and the most vulnerable among us suffer the health effects of pollution. Yet our laws are designed to accommodate this destruction, not prevent it.... In 'The Green Amendment,' Maya K. van Rossum presents her radically simple solution: protect our environmental rights by enshrining them in our state and federal constitutions.
Combines anecdotes from organizing and court battles with arguments for "green amendments" as a particularly effective organizing model.
