When the economy improves,Earth’s environment will improve

Please take a look at this great interview, “When the economy improves,

Earth’s environment will improve. The economy and environmental issues are truly connected. That has been our message at OGL for years.  To find real solutions to Haiti’s environmental issues, we need to provide sustainable economic alternative as well as alternative energy sources.  I spoke to a friend today in Haiti, she was sadden by the fact that in some part of Haiti, people are still cutting trees on the side of the roads. She explained to me although it is sad, we need to provide an economic alternative. I am calling for a National Reforestation Plan in Haiti, which will include the alternatives mentioned above, & education. All the sectors of the society need to be involve, goverment, private, professional, schools.
