Wren Winslow Wirth

Wren Winslow Wirth is the wife of former U.S. Senator Tim Wirth (D-CO) and a Democratic political activist that advocated for left-of-center environmental policies like population control, the elimination of fossil fuels,[1] and the Green New Deal. She has worked for or sat on the boards of many environmentalist activist groups like the Winslow Foundation, the Environmental Defense Fund, [2] and Worldwatch Institute. [3] Wirth and her husband were close friends with former presidential candidate John Kerry and his wife, Teresa Heinz. [4]

Winslow Foundation

Wren Winslow Wirth is the president of the environmental organization, the Winslow Foundation. It supports left-of-center environmental policies on global population, conservation, so-called global warming, and the replacement of fossil fuels with renewable energy. [5]

Wirth has directed funding through the Winslow Foundation to environmentalist activist groups like the World Resources Institute[6] and the Sunrise Movement. [7] The Sunrise Movement is an environmentalist activist group that supports the Green New Deal. [8]

The Winslow Foundation donated $250,000 to an environmentalist non-profit associated with Wirth’s daughter Kelsey Wirth, Mothers Out Front. [9]

Congressional Clearinghouse on the Future

Wren Winslow Wirth was a leader with the left-of-center Congressional Clearinghouse on the Future (CCF). [10] The CCF lobbied for legislation to create a council to plan national demographic and population change and for a “Cost-Conscious Congress” initiative that “required the executive branch to “conform” to the recommendations of the Global 2000 Report.” The report analyzed the environmental impact of global population growth. [11]

Associations

Worldwatch Institute

Wirth worked at the environmentally focused Worldwatch Institute as president[12] and a director. [13] Worldwatch is an anti-population growth organization whose leadership recommended that women not have children and endorsed China’s one-child per family rule, claiming it prevented 300 million additional Chinese children. It considered pro-abortion policies as a policy to counter climate change. [14]

Environmental Defense Fund

She sat on the board of the Environmental Defense Fund with her close friend, Teresa Heinz, wife of former Democratic U.S. Senator and presidential candidate John Kerry (D-MA). [15] EDF was a left-leaning environmental activist organization with ties to the Obama Administration. [16] It opposed former President Donald Trump’s policies including the Keystone Pipeline. [17]

United Nations Foundation

Wirth joined her husband in representing the United Nations Foundation at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. [18] Ted Turner launched the UN Foundation with a $1 billion donation intended to support the United Nations’ initiatives. [19]

World Resources Institute

She was a member of the World Resources Institute,[20] a left-of-center environmental group linked to the Obama Administration and Chinese interests. E-mail records between WRI and the Obama Administration suggested collaboration on the Paris Agreement. [21]

Family

Wren Wirth has two children, Kelsey and Chris Wirth. Chris founded a puzzle company in Boulder, Colorado. [22] Kelsey worked with the Environmental Working Group, the Center for Environmental Citizenship, and the World Resources Institute. [23] She founded the environmentalist group Mothers Out Front, which is an organization for mothers that are concerned about climate change. [24]

Wren Winslow’s husband Tim Wirth had a political career that began under Democratic President Lyndon Johnson and continued with the Nixon administration. He was a Democratic U.S. Representative representing Colorado and later a U.S. Senator. Tim Wirth centered his time in office predominately on left-of-center environmental policies like population stabilization and climate. After leaving the senate, Wirth became the national co-chair for then-Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, which led to his joining the administration as the first undersecretary for global affairs. [25]

He then became the president of Ted Turner’s UN Foundation, and then vice chairman for the UN Foundation and its related entity, the Better World Fund. Both organizations served to support the United Nations and drive population stabilization. The United Nations Environment Programme gave him the Champion of the Earth award. [26]
