Lester R. Brown who has focused on global environmental and food security trends for 50+ years, is among the most influential environmental figures of our time. His early work directly informed policies that averted famine in India in 1965 and led to rapid adoption of semi-dwarf wheats (the Green Revolution). Writing on environmental and food policy, his 54 books have yielded 567 language editions. He was a MacArthur Fellow (1986) and won the United Nations Environment Prize (1987). Foreign Policy named him a Top 100 Global Thinker for 2010 and 2011. He founded the Worldwatch and Earth Policy Institutes.~~
