The Directory of Environmental Scientists and Economists

 

A publication of the Environmental Policy Task Force, a project of The National Center for Public Policy Research, December 1996

 

Introduction

The environment is too important to leave in the hands of political activists. Yet, this is precisely where the United States has left most environmental decision-making in recent years. Political activists -- not authentic environmental scholars, scientists and economists -- have come to dominate both the headlines and Washington's legislative agenda. Activists with little or no practical experience or scientific training are frequently cited in the national news media as "experts" -- or worse, as "scientists." The result: The federal government often spends billions in taxpayer dollars regulating peoples' lives to solve questionable environmental risks while ignoring real ones.

The Environmental Policy Task Force developed this directory to ensure that journalists and policymakers alike have ready access to real environmental scientists, economists and experts. The pages that follow include some 141 individuals with expertise in such environmental disciplines as atmospheric issues, waste disposal and management, endangered species, and air pollution. For the convenience of the reader, the directory not only lists each expert alphabetically by issue area, but provides a complete biography for each.

The Directory of Environmental Scientists and Economists lists experts with a wide-range of views and expertise on environmental issues. Although the majority of these experts are either scientists or economists, other authorities on environmental issues are also included to ensure that this publication is as comprehensive as possible.

How This Directory Works

The reader will first find a list of issues, followed by the names of experts who can address these topics. Then the reader will find an alphabetical list of the experts with their professional biographies. To arrange interviews with any of the experts in this directory contact The National Center for Public Policy Research at (202) 543-4110 or [email protected] .
