Part 2 of a 3 part series:
See Part 1: Van Jones on Community Solar and Wind Energy

See Part 3: Van Jones on Obama's Fuel Efficiency Standards

Former green jobs adviser to the White House and founder of environmental justice group, Green For All, Van Jones joins Planet Forward's Frank Sesno in a discussion of some of the best ideas from citizens and experts on whether we should move away from fossil fuels, how that could be done, and what kind of impact that might have on the economy.

First, he talks about an idea that features students living in Green JJ, a dorm that is encouraging students to take steps to reduce their energy and water use. Without advanced technologies, they reduced their footprint by 60%.

Then, he responds to comments submitted by members of the Planet Forward community.  Got a question for him? Submit your questions in the comments below!
