Author, celebrated life-long activist and award-winning investigative reporter Harvey Wasserman talks with wit and passion about the connections between clean elections and a clean energy future like that pictured in his book SOLARTOPIA. Music by Pete Seeger.
[Editor's note: why does politics matter? Because we should be aware that when truth in government fails, then respect for the environment and ultimately respect for human life also fail. Harvey Wasserman speaks here of his in-depth studies in his home state, Ohio, concerning the 2004 election]

Harvey's widespread appearances throughout the major media and at campuses and citizen gatherings have focussed since the 1960s on energy, environment, peace, justice, U.S. history and election protection.
