                                        History welcomes Dr. Robert Gottlieb,
                                        Professor of Urban Environmental Studies
                                        at Occidental College.
                                        History shows that the environmental movement has
                                        periodically experienced a shift in focus and organizational
                                        priorities following key elections. Of particular note are the
                                        1970 and 1972 congressional elections; the 1980 election
                                        of Ronald Reagan, which created ripple effects throughout
the environmental movement; and the 2000 election of George W. Bush, which witnessed the
most significant shift in environmental policymaking in more than three decades. Gottlieb will
explore the nature of those historical changes and what possible twists might be anticipated with
the outcome of the 2008 election.
