BMI’s Dan Gainor on Fox Business Network

November 6th, 2007 11:34 AM

Yesterday during the 7 p.m. hour of FBN’s “America’s Nightly Scoreboard” the Business and Media Institute’s Director Dan Gainor went head to head with John Coifman of the Natural Resources Defense Council. The topic of discussion was “business going green” and whether or not it can put businesses in the red. The first part of the video can be seen below.

David Asman asked Gainor, “What’s wrong with going green?”

“There is nothing wrong in theory with going green,” replied Gainor, “but the problem is that a lot of companies are doing things that don’t make any financial sense…they’re admitting a lot of things the companies are doing to go green, whether it’s carbon offsets, or environmental credit for energy, this things aren’t necessarily going to help anything…”

Asman went back and forth questioning Gainor and Coifman for roughly eight minutes. Asman also called it “the most civilized debate on the issue he had ever been involved with.” The rest of the interview can be found at the Business and Media Institute’s homepage, or Youtube page.
