Participates in 2 items

Danny came to work on climate by way of medicine. Realizing the potential for a warming world to make lots of people sick, he figured the best thing he could do for the most people was to prevent the warming in the first place. This led him to pursue a Ph.D. in oceanography, figuring an understanding of past warming and cooling would help him counter the current, human-caused warming.

Dr. Richter joined CCL’s staff in 2013 after 5 years as a volunteer, completing his Ph.D., and getting paid to do scientific research on all 7 continents. As CCL’s first staffer in DC, he established our DC office where he has been responsible for developing our overall legislative strategy, clarifying the details of our policy, and interacting with other groups in DC. He has also overseen CCL’s research program, leading to our REMI Study, Household Impacts Study, and Dividend Delivery Study.

In his free time, Danny enjoys swing dancing, backpacking, and spending time with his young children.
