Mark’s Statement On Ted Halstead’s Passing

Average Rating:

This morning, September 8th, the Climate Leadership Council announced that their founder, Ted Halstead, died in a recent hiking accident. 

Mark Reynolds, Executive Director of Citizens’ Climate Lobby, has offered these words of condolence on Twitter:

“I am deeply saddened by the news of Ted Halstead’s passing. As head of the Climate Leadership Council, Ted contributed an incredible amount to the national discussion of climate change solutions and carbon pricing. He spoke at Citizens’ Climate Lobby conferences several times, even meeting with our founder, Marshall Saunders, and myself before launching the Climate Leadership Council. Ted’s leadership and optimistic vision have done so much to bring conservative thought leaders to the table on climate change. Ted will be missed, and we know his important work will continue. I offer my condolences to his loved ones, his colleagues, and all those who were inspired by his work.”

The Climate Leadership Council shared the news and memories of Ted on this Twitter thread. Related groups Students for Carbon Dividends, RepublicEn and Young Conservatives for Climate Action also put out statements, as did Jerry Taylor from Niskanen Center, Rachel Kyte from Tufts University, Ed Maibach from the George Mason University Center for Climate Change Communication, and many more.

If you’re unfamiliar with Ted Halstead or his work, we recommend watching his wonderful TED Talk about carbon dividends, called “A climate solution where all sides can win.”

This is very sad news. We happened to be talking about him the very day he died, saying how his presentations had swayed us to take up working with CCL. Condolences to everyone who knew him.
