        Greening the Gulf: Diane Wilson

        Diane Wilson, a fourth-generation fishing boat captain, took on a giant chemical company and forced it to stop dumping chemicals along the Gulf Coast.

But in the end her determination did more than curtail a corporate polluter in her community: it pointed the entire environmental movement in a new direction.
