University School of Lawt
Let me start by thanking not only the Dean but Professor Poir-
ier and Professor Gorman for giving me this opportunity today, as
well as a couple of other people: Lillian Barone who is the Director
of the Port for the Port Authority, one of the great public officials
that I've worked with in my career who is directly responsible for, in
my judgment, the cleaning, the salvation, and the economic vitality
of the Port of New York; Ed Lloyd who was from the Rutgers' Envi-
ronmental Clinic;Jessica Lerner who was a student of this law school,
but more than that, has been very high standing in life, who was a
former intern in my office in Washington (I am the only person in
Washington still introducing their interns and I am pleased to do
so); Ella Filippone who is on the Passaic River Coalition, who has
been a driving force in cleaning the Passaic River through these
years, mostly by driving those of us in public life nuts, but it is a strat-
egy that has worked, and her work has been tremendous. There is
another person to mention who has done such a tremendous job. I
can honestly say that if there is one individual, without whom the
dumping of oils and dredge spills in the Atlantic Ocean would not
have stopped, it is Cindy Zipf. She is directly responsible for stop-
ping the dumping in the oceans. And finally, to Andy Willner from
New York/New Jersey Baykeepers, who is also a critical part of that
coalition and we are very proud of his work.
I looked forward to this today not only because it is a chance,
after all these years, to come back to this law school knowing that no
professor is in a position to directly attack me, question me, or as-
sault me and to be on the other side of the podium, but because it is
an interesting program in which to share some perspective on the
environmental movement in our country at what really is a critical
time of redefinition of the environmental movement itself. This
movement has gone through so many phases in the twentieth cen-
tury, beginning with Theodore Roosevelt's observation in 1910 that
conservation policy and the quality of rural life cannot be separated.
t This keynote address was delivered at the Environmental Symposium held on
March 30, 1998, at the Seton Hall University School of Law.
