Lessons from the Great Conservationists of the Past

Dr. Larry A. Nielsen
Professor Emeritus, North Carolina State University

These seem like stressful times for the environment.  The climate is changing, but the U.S. backs away from climate treaties.  Regulations on air and water purity are being rolled back.  National monuments are being trimmed, and even the Endangered Species Act is endangered. But fear not!  Our world is better today than in the past, and it will be even better in the future.  How can I be so sure?  This seminar tells the story of inspirational conservationists of the past—people like Rachel Carson, Chico Mendes, Billy Frank Jr. and Wangari Maathai—who proved that we all can build a better future.  If we follow their examples, we can achieve a sustainable and beautiful world!
