On the list is Wilma Subra, Earthworks board member.  The Fierce List 2012.
Wilma Subra.

British Petroleum, be very afraid. Wilma Subra, PhD, 68, is a chemist and technical adviser to the Louisiana Environmental Action Network team investigating lingering health and environmental problems following 2010’s cataclysmic Gulf Coast oil spill. She recently reported that blood samples from cleanup workers and residents near the spill area show alarming levels of toxic chemicals known to cause cancer, genetic mutation and reproductive problems.

What she finds unforgivable: “When people don’t do what they’ve agreed to do.”

I can think of another worthy Fierce Woman who should make the list.

That Wilma Gal is highly talentented, knowledgable and smart. It’s good that she is around to help in the Gas Patch.
