A Sustainability Discussion on Access Utah Wednesday
Hunter Lovins, President of Natural Capitalism Solutions, will make the business case for sustainability on Wednesday’s Access Utah. Trained as a sociologist and lawyer, Lovins is a professor of sustainable business management at Bainbridge Graduate Institute, Bard College, and Denver University. She gave the keynote address at the recent Intermountain Sustainability Summit in Ogden.
In the second half, we’ll revisit a conversation with photojournalist Scott Wallace, author of "The Unconquered: In Search of the Amazon's Last Uncontacted Tribes." Wallace joins Brazilian explorer Sydney Possuelo at the head of a thirty-four-man team in search of the mysterious flecheiros, or “People of the Arrow,” seldom-glimpsed warriors known to repulse all intruders with showers of deadly arrows. Possuelo’s mission is to protect the Arrow People and the expedition seeks out the flecheiros, even while trying to avoid them. Along the way, Wallace uncovers clues as to who the Arrow People might be, how they have managed to endure as one of the last unconquered tribes, and why so much about them must remain shrouded in mystery if they are to survive. “The Unconquered”reveals a critical battleground in the fight to save the planet.
