Nancy Kete, a geographer, has always been attracted to large-scale problems at the energy/environment interface. Her academic and professional work aimed at finding solutions to the acid rain problem in North America and resulted in the 1990 Clear Air Act Amendments. She was the principal architect of the acid rain control provisions of that law, which represent the first large scale practical application of a tradable emissions program. She has been a senior policy adviser in the US government on matters of air pollution, global warming, and the interface of trade and environment issues. Kete has extensive negotiating experience, having been part of numerous US delegations to international environmental negotiations and having served as the Science Advisor for Environmental Affairs for the US Mission to the OECD, where she co-chaired the Joint Experts Group on Trade and Environment. After resigning from the US government she directed the Climate, Energy and Pollution program for five years at the World Resources Institute, until she became managing director of EMBARQ.
