Andrew Revkin is the senior fellow for environmental understanding at Pace University’s Academy for Applied Environmental Studies and writes the Dot Earth blog for The New York Times. A prize-winning journalist, online communicator, and author, he has spent nearly three decades covering subjects ranging from the assault on the Amazon to the troubled relationship of climate science and politics.
From 1995 through 2009, he covered the environment for The Times as a staff reporter. His work on climate change has won most of the major awards for science journalism and a John Chancellor Award from Columbia University for sustained journalistic excellence. Revkin has been a pioneer in multimedia communication, blogging, and shooting still and video imagery in far-flung places. He has also carried his journalism to a new generation in The North Pole Was Here: Puzzles and Perils at the Top of the World, the first account of Arctic climate change written for the whole family. His other books include The Burning Season and Global Warming: Understanding the Forecast.
Revkin lives in the Hudson River Valley with his wife and two sons. In spare moments, he is a performing songwriter and plays in a folk-roots band, Uncle Wade.
