Co-Founder of New America Foundation Think Tank Dies

From the Houston Chronicle:

The head of a climate activism group that brought together conservatives and major polluters like Exxon Mobil and Conoco Phillips to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, died in a hiking accident last week.

Ted Halstead, the president of the Climate Leadership Council, fell to his death on Sept. 2 while hiking in Spain, where his wife and daughter live, a spokesman for the non-profit said.

Here is a press release from New America (previously New America Foundation), which he founded together with Walter Russell Mead, Michael Lind, and Sherle Schwenninger.
