What Folks are Saying…
Four Factors is an inspiring and educational guide for environmental activism. As a student and up and coming environmentalist, I think it is an incomparable resource for future environmental battles.
Remarkably, Bobby has managed to sum up six years of effort by thousands of people in three states into a tight, fun-to-read debrief. Four Factors is clear and empowering. I highly recommend this book to any organization, community leader, or neighbor who is taking on a campaign, be it a local neighborhood effort or a six-year fight against an unneeded $8 billion pipeline project.
Bobby’s guide to environmental activism gives us a raw factual analysis of four critical factors that led to the end of the Atlantic Coast Pipeline. These factors are true for the majority of citizen environmental endeavors and highlight how a group of committed individuals from diverse backgrounds and experiences can take down Goliath.
