Wonderful tribute from the Union of Concerned Scientists
Hello family and friends,
"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."
