I speak with Gary Patton about environmental activism and how to make a difference. Gary is an environmentalist extraordinaire: he was elected to the Santa Cruz Board of Supervisors when he was 29 years old and has fought for many important issues since then as a political representative, environmental attorney, and educator. He publishes a blog and radio podcast, and is unafraid to think Big Ideas. We talk about the importance of local politics and community activism, whether it’s best to create change from within or without, and how to engage more people in the political process. Have a listen.
