The Green Collar Economy by Van Jones: Help Me Spread the Word

Hey Have Fun * Do Gooders!

I'm helping Green for All get the word out about Van Jones' new book, The Green Collar Economy: How One Solution Can Fix Two of Our Biggest Problems.

Here's what Vice President Al Gore says about The Green Collar Economy:

"This book illustrates the link between the struggle to restore the environment and the need to revive the US economy. Van Jones demonstrates conclusively that the best solutions for the survivability of our planet are also the best solutions for everyday Americans."

In order for The Green Collar Economy to have the biggest impact, the best time for folks to buy the book is now, or any time before the Tuesday, October 7th on-sale date. The best seller lists treat every book that is sold before the on-sale date as if it was sold on its release date. Green for All's goal is to sell 5,000 copies by October 8th.

Please spread the word to your peeps, and if you're planning on purchasing the book, please order it earlier than later.

Green for All and Van Jones are both based in Oakland, CA (where I live) so I've been following their work for awhile. I'm here to tell ya that Jones will go down in history as one of the visionary voices of our time. He was recently named as a TIME Magazine 2008 Hero of the Environment.

You can listen to an interview I did with Van Jones in April 2007 for the Big Vision Podcast and read a transcript of our chat on Have Fun * Do Good, or watch him on The Colbert Report in April 2008:

Thanks for spreading the word!

Full disclosure: I am a contractor for Green for All, but I would have posted about Van's book anyway (:
