Social Entrepreneurs: Van Jones on Colbert Report (Forgot to Post)

"When I was a kid they promised me a jet-pack," Stephen Colbert says. "Where's my jet-pack?" He's being his usual acerbic self, poking fun at his guest, Van Jones of Green for All.

I meant to post this earlier in the month, but it somehow got lost. I'm a big fan of Van Jones and his take on the "green economy." I also like the way he promotes clean and green jobs in the US as a pathway out of poverty.

His interview with Colbert keeps Van on his toes, but the point still gets across. Watch it here:

Bottom line: We need to move from a pollution economy to a solution economy.

Go Van go!
