The nation’s leading conservation education and advocacy
group has honored author-columnist Thomas Friedman with its National Conservation
Achievement Award
for exemplary leadership. Friedman’s award from National
Wildlife Federation in the communications category was announced at the
organization’s annual awards banquet in Washington,DC.

The three-time Pulitzer Prize winner, world renowned
author and journalist, Friedman has become one of the most powerful voices in
the United States on global warming. Friedman’s new book Hot, Flat, And
Crowded: Why We Need a Green Revolution—And How it Can Renew America, explains that the United States can and must lead the environmental revolution in the 21st century. Friedman
says, “Green is the new red, white, and blue.”

“Thomas Friedman has taken complex environmental issues and
explained them in a powerful and meaningful way to the American public,” said
National Wildlife Federation President and CEO Larry Schweiger. “At the same
time he has offered solutions for a greener future for our country.”

By us working together, Friedman writes, the clean energy
and conservation movement can help our nation become healthier, wealthier, and
more secure.

Among others, awardees at the banquet included Senator
Timothy Wirth
as Conservationist of the Year, Lindblad Expeditions for Corporate
Achievement, Dr. Heidi
Cullen
in Science, and Elon Musk for
Special Achievement.
