[greenyes] African Environmentalist wins Nobel Peace Prize




Environmentalists and all who work on sustainability issues, take heart!
Rejoice in the good news that Wangari Maathai, an African woman, an
environmentalist, has won the Nobel Peace Prize. An environmentalist!
Imagine that. Having heard the word "environment" so seldom during the
current presidential election, I was beginning to think that "The
Environment" (the air we breath, the water we drink, the land on which and
from which we live) had dropped totally off of the radar screen. I am
encouraged.

Congratulations Dr. Maathai and thank you for your long years of work in the
fields of sustainability, justice and democracy.
