Eric Lindquist, director of the Public Policy Center and associate professor in the Department of Public Policy and Administration, co-authored a paper presented at the recent 2013 American Political Science Association Annual Meeting and Exhibition in Chicago, Ill. The paper, “The ‘Convenient’ Environmental Presidency of George H.W. Bush: A Kingdonian Assessment,” was co-authored with professor Ann O’M. Bowman, with Texas A&M University, who presented the paper at the annual meeting.
Using archival records from the Textual Archives at the George Bush Presidential Library in College Station, Texas, the paper compares the political and policy context of two major environmental policy debates and opportunities that occurred during the Bush Administration in the late 1980s and early 1990s: air pollution and climate change.
