Andrew Revkin has spent nearly three decades covering subjects ranging from the assault on the Amazon rain forest to the changing conditions throughout the Arctic, from the troubled relationship of climate science and politics to the environmental impacts of rising human populations and resource appetites. He currently writes the award-winning Dot Earth blog for the Op-Ed side of the New York Times. Previously, Revkin covered the environment for the Times as a Staff Reporter. He is a pioneer in multimedia communication, blogging and shooting still and video imagery in far-flung places. His books include The Burning Season, which was the basis for a much-lauded HBO film, and Global Warming: Understanding the Forecast.
