Speaker: Bradley Campbell

Mr. Campbell will speak on the challenges of communicating climate threats and the need to transform planning and development at the community level, using as example CLF’s recent lawsuit against ExxonMobil for climate deceit and risks to Mystic River communities.

Bradley Campbell is President of the Conservation Law Foundation, an organization recognized for bringing innovative, pragmatic solutions to New England’s toughest environmental challenges.  As Commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (2002-2006), Campbell successfully led major initiatives to protect water resources, reshape development, restore natural resources, and address global climate change. He enforced federal environmental laws as regional administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Mid-Atlantic region (1999-2001), served in the Clinton administration as associate director of the White House Council on Environmental Quality (1995-1999), and litigated natural resource cases for the U.S. Department of Justice (1990-1995). His many honors and awards include the prestigious John Marshall Award, the highest level of recognition from the Department of Justice.

This program is supported in part by a grant to Earth & Environment Professor Dave Marchant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute through the Science Education Program.
