Frances Beinecke, executive director of the Natural Resources Defense Council, will present a lecture titled "Opposing the Bush Onslaught: The Next Four Years of Environmental Advocacy" at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 29, in 16 Robertson Hall.
The council, founded in 1970, is an environmental action organization that uses law, science and the support of more than 1 million members and online activists to protect the planet's wildlife and wild places and to ensure a safe and healthy environment for living things. Beinecke, who joined the council in 1973, has been selected to become its next president in January.
In the council's 2004 annual report, published this past January, Beinecke and current president John Adams wrote: "The Bush administration has signaled that the attacks on the environment of the past four years are but the leading edge of a much broader assault that will come in the second term."
The lecture is sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, the Program in Science, Technology and Environmental Policy and the Princeton Environmental Institute.
