Climate Change


Michael Mayer has over a decade of experience as an environmental law practitioner, primarily with the public interest law firm Earthjustice. While there, he worked with both the Northwest and Alaska regional offices. His work in the Northwest focused on protecting struggling salmon runs, and his time with the Alaska office was devoted entirely to opposing offshore drilling in the Arctic Ocean. Michael also spent a number of years with Washington Environmental Council, researching land use issues and directing a campaign to reform the state's antiquated water laws.
