The Planet
Who is your hero/role model in the environmental movement?

"Sean Cosgrove in the Sierra Club's Washington office is my environmental hero. As a member of the End Commercial Logging Committee, I have had frequent contact with him and he constantly amazes me with his knowledge of Congressional members-who they are and how they have voted on various issues. Sean is our national forest expert and he is doing a terrific job of helping our committee be effective."
-Gerald Neff,
Chair, Eagle View Group, Iowa Chapter

"Bob Warrick, a Nebraska farmer (see his photo in the May/June Sierra) and Tom Brown, a Nebraska rancher. They have given time, energy, and money to the Sierra Club and the Nebraska Chapter way beyond the call of duty for the last 20-plus years."
-Clayton Brant
Newsletter Editor, Nebraska Chapter

"I am reasonably sure that I don't have one, except perhaps nature itself. I have been impressed by the intelligence and dedication of a number of local activists over the years, but no one stands out as 'heroic'-in fact, I am suspicious of heroes because they tend to burn out quickly."
-Kirk Cunningham,
Conservation Chair, Rocky Mountain Chapter
