But don't take my word for it. Here's what Linda Joyce Forrestal, life editor for THE WORLD AND I, said in 1988:
Sears is one of America's most respected and honored ecologists. He has devoted his long career to furthering our understanding of the delicately balanced ecosystem upon which our very survival depends. Over the years, his ability to clearly articulate complex environmental problems has aided immeasurably in promoting a better world and awakening colleagues and fellow citizens to critical environmental problems, past and present.
Why is he forgotten? That is one of the questions this blog will explore.
