Former EPA chief to speak on environmental politics of Bush era

STANFORD -- William K. Reilly, former administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, will speak on "Sununu, Quayle, and Me: The Politics of the Environment in a Divided Government" at 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 20, in Kresge Auditorium of the Stanford Law School.

Reilly is currently Payne Visiting Professor at the Stanford University Institute for International Studies. This is the fifth and final lecture in his "Greening the New World Order" series.

Reilly will discuss George Bush's record as "the environmental president," from the Clean Air Act and his vigorous enforcement of environmental laws to his refusal to sign the Convention on Biodiversity and his mocking of the Democratic vice presidential candidate as "ozone man." Reilly will share his lessons learned for managing the environment in a political context.

Before heading the EPA, Reilly was president of the World Wildlife Fund and the Conservation Foundation. He is in residence at the Institute for International Studies for the 1993-94 academic year, and his five lectures will be published as a book.
