John Cobb & Friends Gathering: Evaggelos Vallianatos
September 13, 2022 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm PDT
Topic: Brewing Climate Chaos and Pandemics in Our Backyards
Presenter(s): Evaggelos Vallianatos
Writing out of his experience as a scientist with the US Environmental Protection Agency (1979-2004), Dr. Vallianatos has published Poison Spring: The Secret History of Pollution and the EPA (Bloomsbury Press, 2014), an expose of the influence of the chemical-industrial complex on the regulatory agency. He has also written several articles on climate change, including this one, published August 4, which he recommends you read in preparation for our meeting. Valliantos is Greek historian with degrees from University of Illinois (BA, MA), and University of Wisconsin (Ph.D.) is attached. At Harvard University he pursued postdoctoral studies in the history of science, and he has taught history and the politics of environmental protection at several prominent universities. Early in 2020 Dr. Vallianatos reported to John Cobb & Friends about his experience of organic farms in China and in his native Greece.
