Andrew Revkin
The New York Times

Andrew C. Revkin is one of the country's most respected and influential communicators focused on climate change and other global environmental issues. Building on a quarter century of prize-winning print work, he now writes the Dot Earth blog for
the New York Times, a forum where hundreds of thousands of readers meet each month to evaluate and discuss population, climate, biodiversity and related subjects. He has reported on the science and politics of global warming for more than two decades, from the North Pole to the White House and the tumultuous treaty talks in Copenhagen.

After 15 years on staff at the Times, Revkin recently left to become the Senior Fellow for Environmental Understanding at Pace University's Academy for Applied Environmental Studies. He is the author of three books on environmental
subjects, including one for young adults, "The North Pole Was Here: Puzzles
and Perils at the Top of the World" (Kingfisher, 2006). Revkin has received
journalism awards from numerous organizations, including the National
Academies of Science, the American Association for the Advancement of
Science, and Columbia University and has been awarded an honorary doctorate
from Pace and a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship. He lives in the Hudson
Valley where, in spare moments, he is a performing songwriter and member of
the roots band Uncle Wade.
