Green Seal, Environmental Media Association, and the Westin Bonaventure Introduce a Book Signing & Conversation with LA Business Leaders and Environmentalists
LOS ANGELES, March 25, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A discussion that brings greening Los Angeles to the fore has grown louder with the release of a new book that acutely addresses the environmental crisis—In the Light of Humane Nature: Human Values, Nature, the Green Economy, and Environmental Salvation by Arthur B. Weissman.
In the Light of Humane Nature recasts the debate over ongoing environmental degradation in a unique and compelling manner. Transcending today's differences over sustainability policies and the economics of a greener society, this thought-provoking introspection presents a new way to relate to our ecosystem —in terms of morality and human responsibility.
Arthur B. Weissman, Ph.D. is an environmental professional with over thirty years of experience. As president and CEO of Green Seal, Inc., he has led the organization both as a force to promote the green economy and as the premier nonprofit certifier of green products and services in the United States.
Greening in Los Angeles
- Westin Bonaventure Hotel & Suites—Los Angeles' largest hotel was the first hotel recipient of Green Seal certification in Los Angeles.
