Daniel Becker, director of the Sierra Club's Global Warming and Energy Program, will speak about environmental issues at Hamilton College on Wednesday, Nov. 20, at 8 p.m. in the Fillius Events Barn. The event is free and open to the general public. Becker `s talk is titled "Global Warming, the New U.S. Congress and the Environmental Agenda for the 21st Century."

As Sierra Club Global Warming and Energy Program director, Becker develops and implements advocacy and media strategies for federal decision makers and for national and regional Sierra Club staff and volunteers. Prior to this post, he was legislative counsel for Environmental Action. There he helped win passage of the federal Superfund law to clean up toxic waste and worked to pass a strengthened Clean Air Act.

In 1994, President Clinton appointed Becker to the Presidential Advisory Committee on Personal Motor Vehicle Greenhouse Gas Reductions. He was instrumental in assembling a working majority of the committee and drafting the Majority Report to the president.

Becker is a 1977 graduate of Hamilton, and earned a law degree from Northeastern University Law School in Boston.
