Kids From Mean Streets Urged to 'Think Green'
LOS ANGELES -- Civil rights activist Van Jones for years has fought to keep poor kids in Oakland, California, off the streets and out of jail.
Now, he's got a solution he ripped off straight from the West Coast elite -- urging the nation's toughest neighborhoods to think green.
In his book, "The Green Collar Economy" (Harper One, $25.99), Jones argues that the predominantly white and wealthy environmental movement and those living in low-income, mainly black and immigrant communities should join forces to attack two of the nation's biggest problems: climate change and poverty.
