Book Hour: Explosion Green – One Man’s Journey to Green the World’s Largest Industry


Every architect, building engineer, construction manager, and developer around the world has been affected by the green building movement started by David Gottfried. His influence and standards have been applied to hundreds of thousands of buildings representing billions of square feet. He was able to explain environmental concepts in economic terms that have been embraced by most of the major corporations spanning the globe. If there was a Nobel Prize for the environment, it would have been awarded to David Gottfried. His book tells the difficult personal and professional challenges that he overcame to make the green building movement successful. In fact, his business concepts applied to non-profit organizations should be embraced by every entity trying to affect change. A remarkable man and a remarkable story.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
