John Lanier was recently featured as one of the speakers for TEDxAtlanta's "Begin at the Beginning" event. John believes that we all have a part to play in the fight to stop climate change. Through his leadership of the Ray C. Anderson Foundation, he continues the legacy of his grandfather, the late corporate environmental pioneer Ray C. Anderson. With a plan developed for the state of Georgia as the example, John makes a powerful case for a new and exciting method to fighting climate change that incorporates not only solutions that reduce carbon emissions but also those that address social issues such as unemployment and hunger on a local level.
