Denis Hayes: Founding the environmental movement

It was the smell of the pollution belching from the local pulp mill in his childhood home of Camas, Washington that started Denis Hayes on the path of his life work in the environmental movement. Today, Denis is President and CEO of the Bullitt Foundation in Seattle. As an environmental lawyer, he's published more than 100 articles, books and papers on energy and the environment.

But it all began 40 years ago, when he left his Harvard graduate studies to coordinate the first Earth Day in New York city. You can hear the rest of the story in Mike Turner's interview podcast with Denis Hayes at Voices of Living Creatively website.
