"Pollution is Segregated" Says the Father of Environmental Justice (Videos)

Description

18 min. video.

The United States of America is segregated, and so is pollution. These words come from the so-called "father of environmental justice," Robert Bullard. As a sociologist in the 1970s, he shone a light on the fact that minority communities in Houston suffered most from pollution. Since then, he's written more than a dozen books on sustainable development, environmental racism, and climate justice. As part of "Chasing the Dream" -- our ongoing initiative about poverty, jobs, and economic opportunity in America -- Bullard spoke with Walter Isaacson in Texas.
