We’re taking on Scott Pruitt, the Trump administration, the EPA, global warning, weather and climate change this week on TALKish with Halli Casser-Jayne when Andrew Revkin, the prize-winning science reporter and the author of a truly fascinating new book, WEATHER: AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY FROM CLOUD ATLASES TO CLIMATE CHANGE joins me at my table at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.
Andrew Revkin has spent a quarter of a century covering subjects ranging from the assault on the Amazon to the Asian tsunami, from the troubled relationship of science and politics to climate change at the North Pole. Since 1995, he has been covering the environment for the New York Times, but his first prize-winning magazine articles on the human influence on climate were published more than 20 years ago, before the creation of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
He has written acclaimed books on the Amazon, global warming, and the changing Arctic. His multimedia work on the Web has also been widely lauded, particularly his New York Times blog, Dot Earth. He is the first science reporter to win a John Chancellor Award for sustained excellence in journalism.
Now following his prize-winning 21-year stint at The New York Times, Revkin has taken a new position at National Geographic Society as the Strategic Adviser for Environmental and Science Journalism to help expand grants and support for journalism worldwide, focusing on our human journey on this fast-changing planet. And he is out with a new book, WEATHER: AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY FROM CLOUD ATLASES TO CLIMATE CHANGE co-written with his wife Lisa Mechaley in which he presents an intriguing illustrated history of humanity’s evolving relationship with Earth’s dynamic climate system and the wondrous weather it generates.
Oh, and in his spare moments, he is a performing songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who occasionally accompanied the late Pete Seeger at regional shows and plays in a folk-blues band, Uncle Wade.
Scott Pruitt, the EPA, global warning, weather and climate change, and, of course, Halli’s commentary this week on TALKish with Halli Casser-Jayne. For more information visit Halli Casser-Jayne dot com
