At the age of 14, Rensenbrink made his first venture into politics by writing a letter to the editor endorsing Harold Stassen, the governor of Minnesota. The Minneapolis Star Journal published the correspondence. It was the first of numerous letters to the editor that would appear in that publication over the following few years.

 He soon joined the Young Republicans at the University of Michigan in 1951–1952, but soon grew tired of Joe McCarthy’s politics. The year 1984 proved to be pivotal for Rensenbrink.

The first successfully financed anti-poverty program in Maine was created and written for MCA by Rensenbrink and Professor Paul Hazelton of the education department at Bowdoin College. Rensenbrink also served on MCA’s board of directors for a number of years.

Together with New Jersey Green Party co-editor Steve Welzer, Rensenbrink serves as the publication’s chief editor. The foundation also publishes books and runs the website www.Green-Horizon.org.
