Our story begins with Dylan Ratigan, a New York Times Best-Selling author, sustainability entrepreneur and the former host of MSNBC’s highest-rated, non-prime time show. While at MSNBC, Dylan interviewed US combat veterans on a regular basis. Through these interviews he met Michael Hanes and Liz Perez.
Hanes is a force reconnaissance Marine who witnessed first hand the devastations of war in Iraq and Afghanistan and was horrified by the lack of basic needs such as food, water, electricity and education as a result of the war. His insight and powerful message, “Sustainability Is Security
,” inspired Dylan to reconsider his path in life and his potential to help solve this fundamental world crisis.
