Former U.S. Secretary of State
George Shultz has seen that it's hard to keep a movement going once the crisis has passed. In his former position as the United States Secretary of State, Shultz has had a distinguished career in government, in academia, and in the world of business. He is one of two individuals who have held four different federal cabinet posts; he has taught at three of this country’s great universities; and for eight years he was president of a major engineering and construction company. Alarmed by a video of the vanishing Arctic sea ice, Shultz has become a powerful voice in fighting climate change.
He is the author of Issues on My Mind: Strategies for the Future and The Nuclear Enterprise: High-Consequence Accidents. Shultz holds honorary degrees from Notre Dame, Columbia, Loyola, and many other universities.
