Gristmill — Grist‘s leafy green blog — this week is publishing a five-part response by longtime green activist Ken Ward to the essay “The Death of Environmentalism.” He starts out by agreeing with aspects of its diagnosis, but later this week he’ll be diverging from its prescription. He’ll recommend more protest and less hand-holding with progressives. Along the way, he’s likely to ruffle a few feathers. Tune in, follow along, and share your own opinions — in Gristmill.
