Natural Resources Defense Council

I coordinate NRDC's work on renewable energy--fuels and power--and policies that will advance them. For the last few years, I've spent the lion's share of my time working on biofuels, biopower, wind, solar, and geothermal. Along with a great team from our land, water, oceans, and climate programs, I try to understand what these technologies are capable of, what are the research, development, and economic challenges standing in their way, and what standards we need to put in place to make sure they really deliver the environmental benefits they promise. I went to Brown undergrad and Berkeley for my masters. I have just enough science, engineering, and economics to be dangerous and use this training to translate the cutting edge energy technology developments into policy recommendations

Roots in:
New York and New England
Favorite place:
With my wife and two little girls by the sea or walking around the West Village here in NYC
Why "environmentalism" matters:
Because everyone deserves clean air, clean water, healthy food, and the standard of living we enjoy here in America, and when I look at my two little girls (3 and 5 years), I realize that the great global warming experiment we're conducting is really a moral challenge to my generation to protect the world for all the generations to come.
