Environmental expert joins IU

Carolyn Waldron has joined Indiana University Maurer School of Law as director of its Environmental Law Program.

Waldron is former vice president of the National Wildlife Federation, where she led the organization’s collaboration with national and local partners to secure passage of the historic Everglades Restoration Act – the world’s largest ecological restoration project – to conserve the world-class wetland ecosystem in Florida. She helped establish the Hoosier Environmental Council, one of Indiana’s first professionally run environmental advocacy groups, in the 1980s. She has an MPA in environmental policy and policy analysis from Indiana University’s School of Public and Environmental Affairs and also earned her undergraduate degree in environmental studies and fine arts from IU.

Her position is supported by a grant from the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust. “We are delighted to partner with the IU Maurer School of Law’s Environmental Law Program as part of the Trust’s commitment to Indiana’s conservation heritage and environmental stewardship. This grant complements several of the Trust’s previous and current grants, especially our three-year commitment to the national Land Trust Alliance to increase the organizational capacities of Indiana’s land trusts,” said Harriet Ivey, president and CEO of the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust.

  1. Sociologist of religion Peter Berger once said that the US is a “nation of Indians ruled by Swedes.” He meant an irreligious elite ruling a religious people, as that Sweden is the world’s least religious country and India the most religious. The idea is that American social elites tend to be much less religious than just about everyone else in the country. If this is true, it helps explain the controversy raking Indiana over Hollywood, San Fran, NYC, academia and downtown Indy hot coals. Nevermind logic, nevermind it is just the 1993 fed bill did, forget the Founders, abandon of historic dedication to religious liberty. The Swedes rule. You cannot argue with elitists. They have the power, they will use the power, sit down and shut up or feel the power. I know firsthand, having been dealt blows from the elite's high and mighty hands often as a mere religious plebe.

  2. I need helping gaining custody of my 5 and 1 year old from my alcoholic girlfriend. This should be an easy case for any lawyer to win... I've just never had the courage to take her that far. She has a record of public intox and other things. She has no job and no where to live othe than with me. But after 5 years of trying to help her with her bad habit, she has put our kids in danger by driving after drinking with them... She got detained yesterday and the police chief released my kids to me from the police station. I live paycheck to paycheck and Im under alot of stress dealing with this situation. Can anyone please help?

  3. The more a state tries to force people to associate, who don't like each other and simply want to lead separate lives, the more that state invalidates itself....... This conflict has shown clearly that the advocates of "tolerance" are themselves intolerant, the advocates of "diversity" intend to inflict themselves on an unwilling majority by force if necessary, until that people complies and relents and allows itself to be made homogenous with the politically correct preferences of the diversity-lobbies. Let's clearly understand, this is force versus force and democracy has nothing to do with this. Democracy is a false god in the first place, even if it is a valid ideal for politics, but it is becoming ever more just an empty slogan that just suckers a bunch of cattle into paying their taxes and volunteering for stupid wars.

  4. I would like to discuss a commercial litigation case. If you handle such cases, respond for more details.

  5. Great analysis, Elizabeth. Thank you for demonstrating that abortion leads, in logic and acceptance of practice, directly to infanticide. Women of the world unite, you have only your offspring to lose!
