John has been a guest lecturer at more than 50 colleges and has spoken to numerous environmental, religious, and community groups all across the U.S. on the environmental and human costs of rapid population growth. Seager was appointed to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency by the Clinton Administration and also served as Chief of Staff for U.S. Representative Peter H. Kostmayer (D-PA), a senior member of the House Interior and Foreign Affairs Committee. A veteran of more than 50 political campaigns, Seager has authored numerous op-eds and articles on various aspects of population growth. Seager holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from Trinity College in Hartford, CT.
