This episode is the keynote address from Lester Brown delivered at CHABACON 2014, held on October 11th, in Bridgeton, NJ.
The keynote begins with Dr. Michael Edelstein, Director of the Institute for Environmental Studies at Ramapo College of New Jersey. Dr. Edelstein provides an introduction with Mr. Brown’s biography and background and how Lester came to do what he’s doing. Then Mr. Brown takes the stage to discuss the state of agriculture in the world and provides three policies that can address these issues. We then end with a series of audience questions.
I would like to thank Flavia Alaya and Fr. David Rivera for their invitation to cover this event. I’d also like to thank Mr. James Boner and his A/V Club students at Bridgeton High School, Andrea, Angel, and Reggi, for the connection to the sound booth equipment and allowing me to share the space with them for the day.
