Andrew Revkin is an environmental journalist and author. He has spent a quarter century covering subjects including Hurricane Katrina, the Asian tsunami, and the troubled relationship of science and politics to climate change at the North Pole.
Since 1995, Revkin has reported on the environment for “The New York Times’. In 2003, he became one of the first journalists to file stories and photos from the sea ice around the North Pole. He conceived and helped create a three-part “Times” series and award-winning one-hour documentary on the transforming Arctic.
Revkin has written three books: “The North Pole Was Here: Puzzles and Perils at the Top of the World”, “The Burning Season”, and “Global Warming: Understanding the Forecast” which accompanied the first museum exhibition on climate change, created by the American Museum of Natural History.
