Nichols served as CARB Chair in Gov Jerry Brown’s first administration in the late 70s and early 80s, and was appointed again in 2007 by Gov Schwarzennegar, a post she continues to hold today. In this conversation, recorded in front of a live audience at NRDC’s Santa Monica office in December 2018, Mary Nichols shares her personal story, from her roots in Ithaca New York, to her time as the first female reporter for the WSJ, to her post overseeing the air and radiation section of US EPA under Clinton, to one of her current roles as negotiator-in-chief with the Trump Administration, as they seek to pull the US out of the Paris Agreement and roll back California’s right under the Clean Air Act to regulate vehicle emissions.
