Dirty Gold - The Rise and Fall of an International Smuggling Ring

dirty_gold_0.jpg

On This Green Earth Nell and Chris speak with Miami Herald journalist Jim Wyss.

Wyss dives into his book: Dirty Gold - The Rise and Fall of an International Smuggling Ring.
 
The book explores the complex and confounding illegal gold trade that comes out of central and south American countries like Bolivia, Brazil and Peru.
 
It also explores the incredible environmental damage done to the rainforests, wetlands and rivers where the uncontrolled mining and mercury-based 
extraction occurs.
 
Like "conflict diamonds" we all play a role in the solutions to "conflict gold".
