A beautifully written article about Wilma Subra in the FW Weekly:
Unmasking the Polluters
Wilma Subra could make great money in industry; instead, she works for threatened communities.
Her face is framed by baby-blonde wisps of hair, and she speaks quietly. But don’t be misled. Beneath that mild-mannered demeanor is a laser-sharp mind. It’s 9 a.m. and Subra has already fielded urgent calls from the office of Nancy Pelosi, U.S. Speaker of the House, and others. Now she is explaining the details of an involved environmental case she completed years ago. She rattles off numbers and chemicals and industrial processes that would make most people’s heads spin. Subra’s fierce intelligence is coupled with steely persistence in the face of harassment or resistance.

I'm thinking…..Ed (non-scientist) and Wilma cage match.
Wilma is amazing. She just keeps working and doesn't let anything stop her. She has that unshakeable resolution to get things done.
