Environmental Policy in an Era of Political Polarization: The Prospects for Conflict and Consensus
May 4, 3-5 pm, at the Brown Science Center: Join the Brown Environmental Fellows, faculty mentors and friends for a special lecture by Juliet Eilperin, Environment Reporter for The Washington Post. A reception and book signing will follow.
Juliet Eilperin is a born-and-bred Washingtonian who joined The Washington Post in March 1998 as its House of Representatives reporter. Since April of 2004 she has served as the Post’s national environmental reporter, reporting on science, policy and politics in areas including climate change, oceans, and air quality. In pursuit of these stories she has gone scuba diving with sharks in the Bahamas, trekking on the Arctic tundra with Selma Hayek and Jake Gyllenhaal, and searching on her hands and knees for rare insects in the caves of Tennessee. Juliet launched the Post Carbon blog in December 2009. In the wake of the Deepwater Horizon explosion in April 2010, Ms. Eilperin wrote several investigative pieces exposing the lack of federal oversight over offshore drilling. Look out for Ms. Eilperin’s second book, “Demon Fish: Travels Through the Hidden World of Sharks,” to be published in June 2011 by Pantheon.
