Teaches at Pace University CPE

Andrew Revkin is the Senior Fellow for Environmental Understanding at Pace University's Pace Academy for Applied Environmental Studies and writes the award-winning Dot Earth blog for the opinion section of The New York Times. He has spent three decades covering subjects ranging from the assault on the Amazon rain forest to the changing conditions around the Arctic, from the troubled relationship of climate science and politics to the environmental impacts of rising human populations and resource appetites. From 1995 through 2009, he covered the environment for The Times as a staff reporter. His quarter century of coverage of global warming has earned most of the major awards for science journalism along with the John Chancellor Award for sustained journalistic excellence from Columbia University. Revkin has been a pioneer in multimedia communication, blogging and shooting still and video imagery in far-flung places. Dot Earth was created under a John Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship. He has written acclaimed books on global warming, the changing Arctic and the fight to save the Amazon Rain Forest. At Pace, he teaches courses on blogging and social media, environmental-science communication and documentary video with a focus on sustainable development. He has written three book chapters on communication, journalism and the environment and speaks to varied audiences around the world about the power of the Web to foster progress on a finite planet. Revkin lives in the Hudson River Valley with his wife and two sons. In spare moments, he is a performing songwriter who occasionally backs up Pete Seeger and plays in a twangy roots jam band, Breakneck Ridge.
