In the summer of 2003, Terry Tamminen helped Arnold Schwarzenegger win the historic recall election and become Governor of California. He was appointed Secretary of the California Environmental Protection Agency in November, 2003 and later appointed Cabinet Secretary, the Chief Policy Advisor to the Governor.
Working with Governor Schwarzenegger, environmental groups, and business leaders, he designed several highly innovative solutions to our environmental and energy challenges - the Hydrogen Highway, the Million Solar Roof Initiative, and the landmark Climate Change Action Plan. He continues to consult with numerous other senior governmental and business leaders around the world on energy and environmental policy, especially the solutions to global warming.
In 2007, he was named the Cullman Senior Fellow and Director of the Climate Policy Program of The New America Foundation, a non-profit, post-partisan, public policy institute.
His latest book, Cracking the Carbon Code: The Key to Sustainable Profits in the New Economy, describes how and why reducing the carbon footprint of a business will save money, build value and profitability, grow market share, and secure acceptance by consumers and regulators. He lays out powerful motivations for businesses to change.
A previous book, Lives Per Gallon: The True Cost of Our Oil Addiction is an examination of the health, environmental, and national security costs hidden in every barrel of oil. It outlines a blueprint for developing alternative energy sources based on California's real world experiences.
Earlier in his environmental career, Tamminen founded the Santa Monica BayKeeper and served as its Executive Director for six years. He co-founded Waterkeeper programs in San Diego, Orange County, Ventura, and Santa Barbara. He also served for five years as Executive Director of the Environment Now Foundation in Santa Monica and co-founded the Frank G. Wells Environmental Law Clinic at the School of Law, University of California Los Angeles.
Tamminen speaks on sustainable business, climate change, cap and trade for carbon emissions, renewable energy and energy conservation, auto emissions and health, transportation alternatives, ocean and bay protection, politics and sustainability, and environmental leadership in government.
