This episode of The Green Interview features Chris Turner, a journalist who set out on a tour of the world and saw that the messages of environmentalism had proven to be completely inadequate as a myth of renewal. He argues that the environmental movement needs a language of hope, rituals of rebirth, and a sense that the battles are worth fighting. His book, The Geography of Hope, is a tour of the world packed with images of possibility, innovation, and renewal.
