Environmental Valentine

Here’s an environmental Valentine (published on Feb. 14th) from the Orion blog.  It’s an interview with Dr. Theo Colburn, who has been called the Rachel Carson of our times. She is Founder and President of The Endocrine Disruption Exchange, based in Paonia, CO, and Professor Emeritus of Zoology at the University of Florida. As an environmental health analyst, she produced studies on the health effects of endocrine disrupting chemicals (released by the extraction and use of fossil fuels).

Also, see her TEDx lecture: “Letter to the president about chemicals disrupting our bodies: Theo Colborn at TEDxMidAtlantic 2012.”
