9781559632867: Politics, Pollution, and Pandas: An Environmental Memoir

Russell Train, chairman emeritus of the World Wildlife Fund, has led a long life in conservation and environmental politics. Though many of his contributions have been unsung, Train was a catalyst for many of America's most important environmental policies that remain in place in the 21st century. In the contemporary political climate, where party divisions are so sharp and environmental concerns are so often obscured by partisan politics, Train's journey as a life-long republican and an ardent conservationist is an inspiring story. implement occurred during two Republican administrations, those of Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford. Train served as undersecretary of Interior early in Nixon's administration before becoming chair of the president's Council on environmental Quality (1970-1973) and then headed the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from 1973 until 1978. In the early years of the Carter administration, train left government to become president of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), in the US, where, over more than 25 years, he has played a key role on developing that institution into the major conservation organization it is.

About the Author:

Russell E. Train, was chairman emeritus of the World Wildlife Fund, has led a remarkable life in conservation and environmental politics. Though many of his contributions have been unsung, Train was the catalyst for many of the nation's most important positive environmental policies that remain with us today. In the current political climate, where party divisions are so sharp and environmental concerns are so often shunted aside, Train's journey as a life-long Republican and an ardent conservationist is an inspiring story.

Review:

"Train has produced a thoughtful and insightful account of a remarkable public career, an account which reflects very fairly the effort during my presidency to strike a balance among the nation's economic, energy, and environmental needs." (President Gerald R. Ford)

"This is an adventure story—not among the wild animals he knows so well but among the politicians as he pioneered the efforts to conserve our wildlife, our natural resources, and the very atmosphere that supports us all. It is a history invaluable to those interested in the preservation of our environment; a matter in which we all should be concerned and involved." (Walter Cronkite)
