Kreitler was founder and host of “EarthTalk Today,” an environmental TV talk show based in Los Angeles.  He is the first Minister of the Environment” for the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles, member of the steering committee of the Episcopal Environmental Network, and author of “The Earth’s Killer C’s.”
