Here's a little about Harvey Wasserman from the Free Press
website. Is his TMI article true, or is it fiction? You decide.
Free Press Senior Editor and "Superpower of Peace" columnist Harvey
Wasserman is also senior advisor to Greenpeace USA and the Nuclear
Information & Resource Service. He is author or co-author of a dozen books,
including SOLARTOPIA! OUR GREEN-POWERED EARTH, A.D. 2030 and HARVEY
WASSERMAN'S HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES.
Harvey and co-author Bob Fitrakis have been called "the Woodward &
Bernstein of the 2004 election" by Rev. Jesse Jackson. Their HOW THE GOP
STOLE AMERICA'S 2004 ELECTION & IS RIGGING 2008, published by the Columbus
Institute of Contemporary Journalism, is the definitive digest on the theft
of George W. Bush's second term. Their WHAT HAPPENED IN OHIO? (co-authored
with Steve Rosenfeld) is the leading document book, published by New Press.
Harvey's journalistic writings and columns have appeared in major
newspapers and magazines worldwide since 1967. He and Fitrakis co-host
Radio FreePress.Org, and have appeared on Lou Dobbs, Democracy Now! and
other major US media.
Harvey speaks regularly to campus and citizen gatherings throughout the US.
In 1967 he helped found the legendary anti-war Liberation News Service,
which in 1968 moved to the Montague (Massachusetts) Farm, still in
operation (under the stewardship of the Peacemaker Community) as one of the
longest-standing organic communal farms in US history.
In 1973 Montague became a launching pad for the grassroots safe energy
movement. Harvey helped coin the phrase "No Nukes" in the successful fight
against twin reactors proposed nearby. In 1976 he helped organize the
Clamshell Alliance, which staged the first mass demonstrations against the
Seabrook nuclear plant. In 1979 he co-organized the Musicians United for
Safe Energy (MUSE) concerts in Madison Square Garden in 1979. In 1994 he
spoke for Greenpeace to 350,000 semi-conscious fans at Woodstock 2.
Harvey teaches history at two central Ohio colleges and has helped in
successful campaigns to save a local wildlife refuge, shut a central Ohio's
trash-burning power plant, stop a regional radioactive waste dump and ban
McDonald's from the town of Bexley.
Harvey's SOLARTOPIA! OUR GREEN-POWERED EARTH, A.D. 2030 is the first
utopian visioning of a planet free from fossil/nuclear fuels. He works in
the renewable energy industry, co-authoring, with Minnesota windpower
pioneer Dan Juhl, HARVESTING WIND ENERGY AS A CASH CROP: A GUIDE TO LOCALLY
OWNED WIND FARMING (www.danmar.us).
Harvey and his wife Susan have five daughters, two grandchildren and two
