Chicago Matters: Growing Forward presents Fred Krupp

Fred Krupp, longtime president of the Environmental Defense Fund, will discuss and sign his new book, Earth: The Sequel, The Race to Reinvent Energy and Stop Global Warming. In this stirring and hopeful book, Krupp explains how to harness the great forces of capitalism to save the world from catastrophe. He introduces us to the innovators and investors who are reinventing energy and the ways to use it in order to stop global warming. And in doing so, he explains how we can build the new industries, jobs, and fortunes of the twenty-first century.
