Tremper brings multiple perspectives to the field of climate change. Before taking up the cause of global warming, his work spanned the fields
risk management, policy making, high tech,
and market dynamics. While working in Washington, DC,
he founded the Nonprofit
Risk Management Center, which received the endorsement
of a Presidential
Task Force and support of both Democratic and Republican administrations.
While working in Washington, he also helped to launch the Americorps progam and led the campaign for adoption of the Volunteer Protection
Using humor and anecdotes to overcome foreboding subject matter, Chuck
has previously authored books on risk reduction and dozens
of other publications designed to demystify complex
topics for lay readers. He has delivered speeches and conducted workshops
in 26 states. Having concurrently earned a law degree and a PhD from UCLA, and later
held a joint faculty appointment in Law and Psychology, Chuck makes the connections among personal, social, legal, and environmental realms.
He has taught at the National Law Center of George Washington University and
the University of Nebraska. He now lives
in Santa Cruz, California, where he has planted a redwood tree in his yard
and vowed to outlive it or die trying!
Chuck is available for interviews and presentations based on the book. His interview on KRXA's Tomorrow Matters program with Deborah Lindsay is available as an mp3 download.
