Appointed by President Obama in 2009 as assistant administrator for the Environmental Protection Agency Office of Air and Radiation, and subsequently appointed head of the EPA in 2013, throughout her 30-year career Gina McCarthy has been a leading voice for common-sense strategies to protect public health and the environment. During her EPA tenure, she became the face of President Barack Obama’s global warming and climate change initiatives. She is a staunch advocate for reducing greenhouse gas pollution through cleaner energy sources and tougher clean-air regulations. As a proponent of the Clean Water Act, she will be speaking during MSU’s year-long focus on water.

The World View Lecture Series is made possible in part by the MSU Office of the President. This presentation is generously supported by the College of Natural Science; College of Social Science; Department of Community Sustainability; and University Outreach and Engagement.
