Rebecca Tarbotton of Rainforest Action Network, 1973-2012

Rebecca Tarbotton, executive director of the Rainforest Action Network, died in a swimming accident on December 26. Tina Gerhardt of the Progressive does a lovely obituary in Climate Progress , starting with a wonderful quote from Tarbotton: We need to remember that the work of our time is bigger than climate change. We need to be setting our sights higher and deeper. What we’re really talking about, if we’re honest with ourselves, is transforming everything about the way we live on this planet. We don’t always know exactly what it is that creates social change. It takes everything from science all the way to faith, and it’s that fertile place right in the middle where really exceptional campaigning happens - and that is where I strive to be.
