Patagonia Founder Yvon Chouinard Talks Environment, Business and Politics

October 23, 2004 By: Marshall Cutchin

Environmental news magazine The Grist interviews Yvon Chouinard, who is predictably opinionated and usually right, in our opinion, though we wonder about the direct connection with Jesus. “I find that people concerned about the environment tend to be a lot more honest than people who aren’t. I think you can trust them. If you are voting for a congressman who has a really good voting record on the environment and the other guy who’s got a 10 percent [voting record], let me tell you I think that 10 percent guy is probably going to get indicted for something pretty soon.” By Amanda Griscom Little.
