Our conversation with Martin Flora, CEO of Green Theme International (GTI), could not have been better timed. The previous day, US President Donald Trump slashed the size of two nationally-protected lands in Utah. Just a fortnight earlier, 800,000 litres of oil had leaked from the controversial Keystone Pipeline in South Dakota. As we spoke, fires were raging in drought-striken California -- blazes that would continue to erupt with frightening speed as the days continued. Mother Nature was having a particularly bad week, and her chances of recovery were seeming rather hopeless.
So it was reassuring to speak with somebody who is working on her behalf.
