As environmental issues become more pressing, there are two possible responses:
1. Forget them, and hope that government and corporations will figure things out, or
2. Take action yourself.
In the “take action yourself” camp, a few individuals are leading the way. One such person in California is Ed Begley Jr.
Turning up at Hollywood events on his bicycle, Ed has been considered an environmental leader in the Hollywood community for many years. He serves on the boards of Green Wish, the Coalition For Clean Air, The Thoreau Institute and the advisory board of the Union Of Concerned Scientists. He’s also active with many other organizations.
Ed’s work has earned him a number of awards from some of the most prestigious environmental groups in the nation, including the California League of Conservation Voters, the Natural Resources Defense Council, the Coalition for Clean Air, Heal the Bay, Santa Monica Baykeeper and the Cesar Chavez Foundation.
He currently lives near Los Angeles, in a self-sufficient home powered by solar energy. Follow the progress on his new, Platinum LEED-certified home at OnBegleyStreet.com.
