A pollution-based economy has taken a toll on local environments and the quality of life of millions of Americans. In a conversation with Anna Deavere Smith, Green For All founder Van Jones and Sustainable South Bronx leader Majora Carter explain the connections between environmental, economic, and social degradation and how "green-collar jobs" and "greening the ghetto" can solve a range of societal ills.
