Hello family and friends,
Check out the following tribute by Peter Frumhoff, Director of Science and Policy at the Union of Concerned Scientists. It is lovely and really captures Ed's spirit.
"Ed joined the Union of Concerned Scientists’ board in the summer of 2008. Throughout his tenure, he was a gentle and supportive presence at board meetings. Consistently humble, he rarely spoke of his accomplishments: one of the first four African-Americans to be inducted into the National Academy of Sciences, in 2003; fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences; international leader in marine and climate science policy."
