(WASHINGTON, DC—August 3, 2021) U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Michael S. Regan announced his selection for members of the agency’s Scientific Advisory Board (SAB), including Steven Hamburg, Environmental Defense Fund’s Chief Scientist.

Dr. Hamburg will join 46 other members of the board, who will provide advice to EPA leadership as it continues to advance its mission. Dr. Hamburg also holds a dual appointment to the Climate Science Committee and previously served as a member of the Chartered SAB.

“I am looking forward to working together with this group of talented scientists as we advise the EPA on how best to protect our environment and our fellow citizens from dangerous pollution and the threat of climate change,” Hamburg said. “We are at a critical point in our fight against climate change and have no time to waste. I welcome the Biden administration’s commitment to following the science as we move forward in developing thoughtful, evidence-backed solutions.”
