My expertise in more detail I hold a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Michigan, and a B.A. in Geology from Williams College. I’m the author of three books: Economics and the Environment, (John Wiley and Sons: 2017) now in its eighth edition; Fighting for Love in the Century of Extinction: How Passion and Politics Can Stop Global Warming (University Press of New England: 2007); and The Trade-off Myth: Fact and Fiction about Jobs and the Environment (Island Press: 1999). I also serve on the editorial board of Sustainability: The Journal of Record, have been an Advisor to Chevrolet on their Clean Energy Initiative, and am a member of the Board of Directors of the Follett Corporation. In recent years, I have coordinated a series of national educational events around climate change, engaging over 2,500 colleges, universities, and K-12 schools in solutions-based dialog. At Bard I also direct C2C Fellows, a network of undergraduates and recent graduates who aspire to sustainability leadership in business and politics.
Credentials In addition to the three books and other affiliations listed above, I speak regularly on college campuses across the US, and host national webinars on sustainability careers and curricula.
