Girl meets Big Oil. Girl falls in love with Big Oil. And then? First-time author Christine Bader has crafted a narrative that is equal parts inspiring and, at times, infuriating while remaining enthralling throughout. In The Evolution of a Corporate Idealist: When Girl Meets Oil, Bader takes the reader on a journey from her days at pre–Deepwater Horizon BP to the United Nations and beyond as she works at the front lines of corporate social responsibility. Ensia recently spoke with her about the book, the future of sustainability and life after Big Oil.
