You are welcome. The reason I knew who she was is due to the fact that in the early part of 1993, while I was in college, I had a chance to meet David Suzuki. He was one of the four authors of my genetics textbook - which I still have. The speech given by Severn is as potent today as the day she gave it. Great post Nova.

Thanks Kazchen.
