Mongolian Herder Wins Environmental Prize

The Goldman Environmental Prize recognizes one individual in each of six regions for his or her role in fighting to protect the environment. Many weren't seasoned activists. The Asian winner this year is literally from the grassroots. Setska Moonkhbayar, who grew up in a family of nomadic herders in Mongolia, organized other nomads into a group that successfully lobbied the government to pass water protection laws.
