“Essential reading for anyone with a stake in the environmental debate.”
- Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
“Tightly argued and persuasive, Getting to Green is mandatory reading for anyone who cares about climate change or about fixing the dysfunction in government.”
- U.S. Senator Evan Bayh
“My fellow environmental leaders may not agree with every word, but we ignore this book at our peril… With a career at the highest levels of global capitalism and as a greatly respected environmental leader, Fred Rich is in a unique position to bring the right and left together to find practical solutions to our environmental challenges.”
- Rand Wentworth, president, Land Trust Alliance
“A thoughtful analysis of where the Green movement is today and a compelling case for what Greens must do to regain broad public support. Whether you are an environmentalist or a conservationist, liberal or conservative, you must read this book.”
- Simon Roosevelt, founder, Conservation Roundtable, and author of American Hunting and Conservation
“In an exploration that is by turns history lesson, political commentary, philosophical analysis, and campaign strategy session, [Rich] succeeds in showing that one of the most angrily contested topics in contemporary politics could be, if we can reset some the basic rules of communication, a place of deep and meaningful consensus.”
- Gregory E. Kaebnick, Hastings Center, author of Humans in Nature
“Getting to Green shows the way: Conservatives need to be welcomed as the indispensable partners for actions on climate and other environmental issues.”
- Bob Inglis, six-term GOP congressman from South Carolina

Some trigger warnings: To my anti-nuclear environmentalist friends, be prepared to be deeply disturbed that nuclear power plants emit less radiation than their fossil-fuel counterparts. To my climate change doubting friends - and yes, I have them - be prepared to be very upset that the price of observing and acknowledging climate change may be personal and political loss. In other words, if you want a feel good book, you have come to the wrong place. But if you want a book that makes a difference, read, discuss, and act.
Postscript: My 94-year-old mother called as I was writing this review. Having found Getting to Green on Audible.com (her only way of reading these days), she is carrying the message to her neighbors and friends who are much more concerned about the quality of the air and water that their decendants will inherit than the political parties with which they will affiliate.
This book's contents significantly increased my understanding of the conservation movement - past and present - and provides a critically needed roadmap for "Getting to Green" via the hugely ignored "Center Green" sensibility of most Americans.
Fred Rich covers the gamut of challenges to ending the political deadlock and destructive "market fetish" that are misleading our county, and provides a path to reaching "rights with responsibilities" without economic capitulation.
The fine detail provides specific pragmatic solutions across a broad range of conservation, politics, health, food, energy, and related topics.
This is a book by a knowledgeable and creative conservation practitioner that will be greatly appreciated by other conservation practitioners.
