In an recent interview on CNN’s Parker Spitzer, author, producer, and environmentalist Laurie David discussed her new book “The Family Dinner: Great Ways to Connect With Your Kids, One Meal At A Time,” and insisted that modern life is tearing families apart.

David believes that family dinner time (an occasion far too many skip) is the perfect opportunity to discuss important personal and social issues, including, of course, environmentalism.

As an activist, Laurie is best known for her work producing the 2006 Academy Award winner, An Inconvenient Truth, and said that while she’s optimistic about environmental progress, she’s also frustrated.

“I just think the forces against change are so strong, so rich, so powerful, so organized, and they’re continuing to keep the public confused and misinformed about this issue,” said David. “I don’t understand…when science became something you believe in…facts are facts.”

Check out David’s entire interview below and tell us what you think!
