Fred Krupp & Miriam Horn: Hope for Environment & Economy

Mobile Content Enabled

Environmental Defense Fund President Fred Krupp and EDF staff member Miriam Horn delivered a rousing message of hope for the environment – and the economy – at Catawba College Thursday evening.

In the year and a half since the revised paperback version of their book, “Earth: The Sequel,” came out, Krupp told the 300 people gathered in Keppel Auditorium that the clean energy revolution – a multi-trillion-dollar market – predicted by their book is here and well under way.

“It's a revolution that has made our air cleaner,” he said, “and in doing so, it has made us healthier. It's a revolution that can create millions of American jobs. It's a revolution that can help free the country and lessen our dependence on imported oil.

Dr. Peden is principal investigator for an ongoing study, “Human Health Effects of Environmental Pollutants.”   This study is a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, “to better understand the effect of a number of air pollutants on human health.  This includes studies with volunteers exposed to a number of low-level pollutants to see how these impact health. We also test the effect of certain medications on response to pollutants and examine if people with asthma or certain genetic factors have increased risk for pollutant-induced disease.”
