Author of the article

Richard Emory became our nation’s top lawyer for EPA criminal investigations, and then worked internationally for EPA. His book, Fighting Pollution and Climate Change – An EPA Veteran’s Guide How to Join in Saving Our Life on Planet Earth, is paradoxically both deeply disturbing and often quite entertaining. It is enlivened by his personal experiences in the investigation and trial of polluters, whistleblowing inside the “deep state,” and adventures abroad in official, foreign missions. He models for young professionals the fulfillment and even joy to be found in the life of an environmental protector. Visit:
