Since 1991, Rick has been legislative director of Greenpeace's toxics campaign. He is a go-to source for journalists covering toxics and chemical security issues. He has been quoted in a wide range of national publications including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, CBS News, NPR, FOX, and many others.

Rick is one of the nation's foremost experts on a variety of toxics issues, including security issues related to chemical hazards and the chemical industry, EPA regulations pertaining to toxic incineration, the pulp and paper industry, PVC plastics, and toxic pollutants. He has testified before Congress on multiple occasions and helped lead our successful global campaign to ban some of the world's most dangerous chemicals and prevent new ones from being marketed.

Rick's work to expose the vulnerability of U.S. chemical plants to terrorism and accidents resulted in a feature story on the CBS program 60 Minutes in November 2003. He was also the subject of a front-page story in The Wall Street Journal in January, 2004.
