Just a reminder that Dean Bierbaum will be hosting internationally-acclaimed author and environment reporter for The New York Times, Andrew C. Revkin, as part of the Dean’s Speaker Series next Monday, April 10th.  One of the nation’s most honored science writers, Andrew Revkin has spent two decades covering subjects ranging from murder in the Amazon, to the loss of the Space Shuttle Columbia; from research on the floating ice cap at the North Pole, to the political clash over global warming.


Since 1995, Mr. Revkin has been an environment reporter for The New York Times.  He is the recipient of the National Academies Communication Award for print journalism, two Science Journalism Awards of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and an Investigative Reporters & Editors Award. 

Mr. Revkin is the author of The Burning Season, a New York Times Notable Book of the Year, which won the Sidney Hillman Foundation Book Prize and a Robert F. Kennedy Book Award.  This book was the basis of an award winning HBO film of the same name.  His second book, Global Warming, Understanding the Forecast, accompanied the first museum exhibition on global warming which was created by the American Museum of Natural History.
