EPA honors Hawaii geology professor Fletcher

HONOLULU (AP) - The Environmental Protection Agency is honoring University of Hawaii Geology Professor Chip Fletcher for his work on climate change science.

The EPA said Thursday it was giving its Environmental Award in Hawaii to Fletcher this year.

The agency noted Fletcher is an integral part of the school's Center for Island Climate Adaptation and Policy. The EPA says Fletcher also excels at communicating his findings to policy makers and the public.

The EPA announced the award at its 12th Annual Environmental Awards Ceremony held in Los Angeles.

The ceremony coincided with the 40th anniversary of the agency's founding on Dec. 2, 1970.
