Lester Brown: The missionary of change

Publication Date: 18 July 2011

Author(s): Rajendra K Pachauri


One brilliant thinker and productive professional that I have a great deal of respect for is Prof. Lester R Brown. Lester is the founder of the Worldwatch Institute which he established in 1974 after a career in the U.S. Government as an agricultural economist. More recently in 2001, he founded the Earth Policy Institute. Lester sends me copies of all the books he writes, and his prolific output can be gauged from the fact that he has authored or co-authored 50 books so far. The latest volume he has produced this year has the title “World on the edge: how to prevent environmental and economic collapse”.
