An environmental activist and media insider takes a close-up look at the modern-day environmental movement and how it has gone astray, offering a scandalous look at the big money involved, the waste of funds, and the corruption by mining operations, logging interests, and energy conglomerates, all at a time when global warming reaches a point of no return.

In spring 2006, Christine MacDonald left journalism for a dream job at Conservation International, one of the world’s largest environmental organizations. Soon after reporting to the group's Washington offices, however, she realized that something is rotten in today's clubby world of conservationists.

 

Green, Inc. is a riveting account of an eco-warrior's travails at the crossroads of the nonprofit and corporate worlds. Environmental NGOs that once dedicated themselves solely to saving pandas and parklands today vie for the favors of mining operations, logging companies, and energy conglomerates. Being a top conservationist today means partying with corporate execs aboard private jets, yachts, and Land Rovers. A scandalous snapshot from inside a good cause gone bad, Green, Inc. unfolds at a time when global warming nears the point of no return and more people than ever are awakening to the consequences.

Book News
Journalist MacDonald takes on the role of whistleblower in this fast-paced book that goes behind the scenes of many conservation organizations synonymous with the word "green." Corporate CEOs with six-figure salaries, cozy relationships with mining and logging companies, and the acceptance of large donations by conservation groups from companies typically referred to as "The Toxic Ten" are some of the topics covered. Based on interviews and in-depth research, this book will be fascinating reading for anyone with an interest in the evolution and business practices of the conservation movement.
