Barry Commoner - NEW YORK, N.Y. - Barry Commoner (May 28, 1917 – September 30, 2012) was an American biologist, college professor, and politician. He ran for president of the United States in the 1980. He attended Harvard University and received a doctorate in biology in 1941. Commoner first came to prominence in the 1950s and 1960s by opposing nuclear weapons tests, a campaign that soon branched out into other environmental concerns and issues of peace and social justice. He was not the first to warn that the Earth was living beyond its means, but he was one of the most energetic in trying to get the message across to the American public. Over 20 years he helped to lay the foundation stones for the “green” movement in a series of books which linked ecological concerns with a radical social agenda, appealing to traditional nature conservationists, the anti-nuclear movement and civil rights activists.
