Seth Leitman, "The Green Living Guy"
Seth Leitman may not have known it at the time, but he planted the seeds to become the “Green Living Guy” during his master’s program studies focusing on energy usage and the environment. It was a good concentration choice: Now years later, Leitman says that green living is all about energy, economy and environment, and making all three work in sync. Today, Leitman is a prolific green author and editor of several books, including Build Your Own Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle and Build Your Own Electric Vehicle, among others. He also blogs, creates green-themed videos and even hosts the “Green Living Guy Show” radio program. He does it all to answer green questions that “people are afraid to ask.” “I want everybody to be green gurus,” Leitman says, referencing his series of books published by McGraw-Hill. “It’s not just about me; I’m just one guy.”

Joshua Greene
Joshua Greene, Partner, Patton Boggs
Joshua Greene is the head of energy and natural resources at Patton Boggs, an international law firm specializing in global business and trade for nearly 50 years. Since joining the firm in 2002, Greene has worked on the Energy Policy Act of 2005 and the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, cementing his reputation as a green energy advocate and policymaker. Greene, who works in Washington, D.C., says our nation is at an energy crossroads at this time. Despite strong bipartisan campaigning advocating green energy advancements in the last presidential election, our nation has had to cut back funding on many of these necessary programs. Yet many businesses continue to see the value in transitioning to a cleaner-energy economy with sustainable policies. “Not only do federal agencies have to become cleaner and greener,” Greene explains, “but [they] also have to become more sustainable in their entire value chain.”
