Seth Oster: The Green Fusion of Hollywood & Washington, D.C.

By Environment Man & Holly Wood

We were wondering how EPA Administrator Lisa P. Jackson appeared on Bill Maher's "Real Time" show so fast. Not that she isn't quite the impressive figure, but it just seemed to happen so fast out of the blue. Then we put 2 and 2 together and realized that she appeared on Maher right after Seth Oster, left, went to work for the United States Environmental Protection Agency as Director of the Office of Public Affairs (OPA). Seth has broad experience both inside and outside of government. In Washington-speak: he will play a vital role in leading EPA's efforts to reach out to new communities and constituencies, promoting environmental education initiatives and generating public support for EPA’s mission.

Think Seth 'Hollywood' Oster. Lisa Jackson is already a star. Seth will help turn her into a superstar. Possibly a megastar. He was Executive Vice President for Communications at the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA). He was a lobbyist for mega PR firm Hill and Knowlton. Chief Communications Officer for the Screen Actors Guild (SAG). Senior Executive for the American Film Institute. Vice President, Corporate Communications for Napster Inc. Wow. You get the idea. Yo Hollywood, we have a spot for you over here at AAEA after you leave EPA.
