In the June 8, 2015 issue of The Christian Science Monitor Weekly, Gregory M. Lamb interviewed Lester Brown, the environmental analyst and founder of the Earth Policy Institute, who sees a bright future for sun and wind power. Here are a few tasty tidbits from the article. 

"For a lot of our lifetimes, we've been getting energy [oil] from halfway around the world. Now suddenly we have rooftop panels and we're getting energy from 10 feet over our heads."

—Lester Brown

Founder of the Earth Policy Institute


"There's a whole list of billionaires just piling money into this [sun and wind]. What that does for investment is it says, This is where the smart money is going."

—Lester Brown

Named " of the world's most influential thinkers"


"Almost all the big homebuilders in this country either offer or automatically put solar panels on new rooftops...because buying a house with no electric bill is kind of neat." 

—Lester Brown

Called "the guru of the environmental movement"
