Marine Expert John Emory Parks Chats with Grist
After a long career in environmental nonprofit work, John Emory Parks recently made the jump into government service as an international affairs specialist for the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. He cites his son as his environmental hero, relates the horrifying moment when he realized his conservation work might be contributing to the AIDS epidemic, and ponders why the oceans, which cover about 70 percent of the globe, are so low on enviros' priority lists, as he answers Grist's questions -- in InterActivist, on the Grist Magazine website. Ask him a question of your own by Wednesday at noon PST.
