Statement from Frances Beinecke, President, Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC)

With the loss of Phil Clapp today, the Enviromental community has lost one of its most passionate advocates, strategic political thinkers, and savvy communicators. Through his strong leadership of the National Environmental Trust, now the Pew Environment Group, Phil brought the power of effective communications to our joint commitment to control the climate crisis. We will miss his astute strategic sense as well as his wit and collegiality as we continue to fight the fight that he was so deeply committed to.

The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) is an international nonprofit environmental organization with more than 2 million members and online activists. Since 1970, our lawyers, scientists, and other environmental specialists have worked to protect the world's natural resources, public health, and the environment. NRDC has offices in New York City, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Bozeman, MT, and Beijing. Visit us at www.nrdc.org and follow us on Twitter @NRDC.
