An interview with Sierra Club renewable energy expert Carl Zichella is presented. When asked how and why he got involved in conservation, he says that the forests of upstate New York has inspired him. He also states that the global warming serves as a menace to the development they had made in the conservation of land and wildlife. According to him, the most challenging thing faced by a conservationist is to help people understand the importance of addressing the climate change.
