Scare tactics and green issues

Kate Sackman of EcoMyths Alliance says “Many environmental organizations use scare tactics to motivate people to take action...For most people, the end result is that they are overwhelmed and too discouraged to act.” For our EcoMyths series, we’ll talk with Sackman and Diane Wood, president of the National Environmental Education Foundation about different methods used to inspire people to get engaged on green issues.
