Jane Goodall: Power of Corporations Is Destroying World's Rainforests
Jane Goodall is one of the world’s leading voices on climate change and environmental conservation. Amy Goodman of Democracy Now! had the chance to catch up with Goodall at the Paris climate summit last month.
A renowned primatologist, best known for her groundbreaking work with chimpanzees and baboons, Goodall was at the summit to talk about saving the rainforest as a way to mitigate climate change. She shared with Goodman her thoughts on climate denial among the GOP presidential candidates, particularly Donald Trump. She offered some of her insights into why the world's rainforests are being destroyed at an unprecedented rate, why she chose to be a vegetarian and ways in which we can all reduce our impact on the Earth.
