Andrew Revkin is one of America’s most honored and experienced writers on environmental sustainability and a leading innovator in using new communication tools to foster progress on a finite, noisy, fast-forward planet. Since late 2016, he has been the senior reporter for climate and related issues at ProPublica.org. He joined the Pulitzer-winning public-interest newsroom after 21 years of writing for The New York Times, most recently through his Dot Earth blog for the Opinion section. His reporting on climate change science and policy began in 1988 and has taken him from the North Pole to the Amazon, the White House to the Vatican.
As the Senior Fellow for Environmental Understanding at Pace University from 2010 until 2016, he taught courses in blogging, environmental communication and documentary film. Through that span he was also a member of the Anthropocene Working Group, which has assessed evidence that humans are creating a new geological epoch.

He has written acclaimed books on humanity’s evolving relationship with the elements, global warming, the changing Arctic and the fight for the Amazon rain forest, as well as three book chapters on science communication. Revkin has won most of the top awards in science journalism, a Guggenheim Fellowship, Columbia University’s John Chancellor Award for sustained journalistic excellence and an Investigative Reporters & Editors Award.
His writing has twice been the basis for films: “The Burning Season” (HBO, 1994) and “Rock Star” (Warner Brothers, 2001).
In spare moments, he’s a performing songwriter and leader of a roots band, Breakneck Ridge.
