Profiles

One of the requests I made prior to accepting the Sierra job was that I be able to write profiles of extraordinary people whose lives, work, or ethnic background are of the type not usually associated with the environmental movement. That way I was able to sit at kitchen tables and hear stories that included those of a hunter, a former prison inmate, an African American who had quit talking for decades to protest environmental destruction, and a nun who took on corporate CEOs over climate change. Their voices are mostly left out of mainstream media but their stories are both remarkable and inspiring.
