The 2013 Earth Day Canada Outstanding Commitment to the Environment award went to Tom Rand, one of the country's top thinkers, investors and advisors. He is a trailblazer in the realm of clean energy technology and co-developer of the lauded low-carbon Planet Traveler hostel in downtown Toronto.
This fall he followed up his first book, Kick the Fossil Fuel Habit: 10 Clean Technologies to Save Our World, with a darker, more critical one called Waking the Frog. A\J contributing editor Daryn Caister interviewed Rand in Toronto in September about practical sustainability, Canadian clean tech and apocalyptic language.
