Podcast: Lester Brown's agricultural roots may solve today's environmental problems
In June 2009, the Lemelson Center featured environmentalist Lester Brown in a "Portrait of Invention" public program. In this podcast of segments from his onstage interview with historian Marc Pachter, Brown talks about growing up on a farm, and about how technology, innovation, and economic forces today will determine the future of our global environment.
