Iam Richard Fuller, an environmentalist, working on pollution in the developing world. AMA.
Hi Reddit. My name is Richard Fuller, founder of Pure Earth (formerly the Blacksmith Institute), and author of the upcoming “The Brown Agenda: My Mission to Clean Up the World's Most Life-Threatening Pollution”. For the last 16 years, I’ve devoted myself to cleaning up the world’s most polluted places. Though highly underreported, pollution is estimated to account for about one in every seven deaths worldwide. Its the biggest killer in the world, no shit.
Pure Earth has cleaned up more than 80 toxic polluted sites around the world, to the benefit of over 4.2 million people in more than 20 countries. Here’s an article Bloomberg wrote about our work in Ukraine.
EDIT: As of Wednesday the 22nd at 1:30pm, Rich won't be checking the AMA regularly. Thanks so much for asking questions and supporting our mission!
