Senator John Kerry and his wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, have written a book together--This Moment on Earth: Today's New Environmentalists and Their Vision for the Future --and they will be here at the Central Library's Montgomery Auditorium to discuss it on Monday, June 4 at 7:00 p.m. Both have impressive records supporting environmental causes. Among other things, Senator Kerry has introduced legislation to improve standards for clean air, worked to strengthen the Safe Drinking Water Act, sponsored legislation to protect marine mammals from commercial fishing, opposed opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to drilling, and strongly advocated for U.S. participation in the Kyoto accords and other international environmental initiatives. Teresa Heinz Kerry has been described by the New York Times as “one of the nation’s leading philanthropists” and by the Utne Reader as one of 100 American visionaries because of her environmental work. And guess where Kerry and Heinz first met? At an Earth Day rally. How environmental is that?
