Philip Warburg’s environmental advocacy career has spanned three continents. From 2003 to 2009, he was president of the Conservation Law Foundation, New England’s leading environmental advocacy group. During the previous decade he assisted the Palestinian Authority in drafting its first environmental laws, coordinated the Government of Jordan’s efforts to protect the Gulf of Aqaba, and directed the Israel Union for Environmental Defense, a Tel Aviv-based environmental watchdog organization. Earlier he led environmental law reform efforts in Central and Eastern Europe for the Washington-based Environmental Law Institute. He has recently devoted himself to writing about the rise of renewable energy in America and has been credited by former U.S. Representative Henry Waxman with “invent[ing] a new literary genre: the clean energy travelogue.” Researching his two books, Harness the Sun and Harvest the Wind, he has traced the path of these transformative technologies across more than half the United States. Warburg is a graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Law School.
