Andrew Revkin

Strategic Adviser, National Geographic Society

Andrew Revkin is currently a strategic adviser for environmental and science journalism at National Geographic Society. In his current work, he draws from his quarter century of experience covering subjects from Hurricane Katrina to the Asian Tsunami. Prior to his current position, he was a writer for the Dot Earth blog of the New York Times Opinion pages. He was the first reporter there to file stories and photos from the sea ice around the North Pole. In 2016, after 21 years at the New York Times, he became the senior reporter for climate and related issues at ProPublica. He sees the reality of our climate situation getting lost when arguments pop up between those eager for action and those eager for stasis.

Revkin is the author of several books including the recently published, Weather: An Illustrated History: From Cloud Atlases to Climate Change.
