It's an urgent environmental sustainability matter: The rapid warming of the earth's atmosphere could create untold catastrophe. In this audio lecture, Carol Browner, former EPA head, presents data on global warming, declaring, "There is not a single engineer in the world who could reverse the rise in the sea level once it starts to happen.” She advises her audience to look for nonpartisan, business friendly ways to address the looming environmental sustainabillity crisis.
Appointed by President Bill Clinton in January 1993, Carol M. Browner was the longest serving administrator in the history of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. As EPA administrator (the organization's head), Browner's mission was to protect public health and the environment by safeguarding the nation's air, water, and land from harmful pollution. She followed the philosophy that the environment and the economy go hand in hand, arguing that protecting the environment and public health entails promoting innovation, flexibility, and American competitiveness.
