    Van Jones on BP Oil Spill: Drill, Baby, Still?
    Commonwealth Club - The Commonwealth Club of California
    Van Jones broke new ground with his proposal for a green-collar economy, stating that "the time has come to move beyond eco-elitism to eco-populism." He fights for environmental justice and to create an economy that is both sustainable and that lifts up the poorest communities through green-collar jobs.Jones describes how the third wave of environmentalism -- the investment wave -- could solve inequality and catastrophe with a "Green New Deal" mindset. The Commonwealth Club awards Van Jones a 21st Century Visionary Award for guiding the nation to ecological equality.
