New Book About the Brown Problem Sold to Santa Monica Press

On 28, Mar 2014 | In Non-Fiction Book | By admin

In the United States, everyone talks about going green, but in other places around the world, sites exist where green is a fantasy. First you have to deal with the brown problem. You have to deal with the dirty, filthy trouble — man-made environmental catastrophes that kill several million people a year, and which, if left unmitigated, will only kill more as years go by.

Damon wrote about this dire situation in his essay Brown is Just as Important as Green, which won the 2012 Web of Life Foundation Award. In the summer of 2013, he traveled to Indonesia to survey various brown sites on the islands of Java and Kalimantan (Borneo). Now, he’s writing a book on the subject, co-authored with Richard Fuller, the environmental expert who founded the world-renowned Blacksmith Institute.
