Peter Sullivan is the founder and CEO of Clear Light Ventures, Inc., as well as an environmental health funder who focuses on toxins and wireless safety. Over the last 10 years, Peter has funded efforts to reduce mercury and other toxic metals in the environment. He funded roughly half of the National Resource Defense Fund’s mercury program, and in 2008, they successfully sued the EPA to close the cement industry’s exemption from the Clean Air Act. This victory resulted in an annual healthcare savings of approximately 6.7 billion dollars. Additionally, he supported the work of several non-profits working toward the UN’s international mercury treaty (The Minamata Convention on Mercury), which was signed in 2013.
His efforts are now focused on raising awareness about the known health effects of wireless radiation and EMF (electromagnetic fields), both of which are listed as group group 2B carcinogens by the World Health Organization. He speaks about autism and environmental health at conferences throughout the United States and abroad.
Peter’s work on detoxification and EMF have been featured in the book Toxin Toxout: Getting Harmful Chemicals Out of Our Bodies and Our World, and will also be featured in the 2016 season of CNN’s Inside Man with Morgan Spurlock.
Previously, Peter was a software designer for Netflix, Inc., Interwoven, Inc., Excite@Home, and Silicon Graphics. Prior to working in high-tech, he was an Executive Officer and pilot in the United States Navy. He has a B.A. in psychology from University of Detroit and an M.S. in computer science from Stanford University.
