Wednesday Author Spotlight: Hunter Lovins and Green Evangelism

Ignore the e-word (not one of my favourites, sorry); this is definitely worth reading . . .

Our Enchanting Adventure

To continue with this week’s meditation/theme on the need for evangelism and spreading good news, I’d like to share my experience of working with a positive evangelizer in the area of sustainability.
