‘climate communicator’ Andrew Revkin

Friday, April 18 at 7:30 PM
Macky Auditorium, University of Colorado Boulder
Free and Open to the Public

Join us for an interview with noted environmental writer, Andrew Revkin. Afterwards enjoy a live performance of Revkin’s original music that he will perform from his recently released album. His final piece, Liberating Carbon, will be accompanied by a live shadow play performance. A perfect evening out for all ages.

Andrew Revkin is the Senior Fellow for Environmental Understanding at Pace University and has been writing about environmental sustainability for more than three decades, from the Amazon to the White House to the North Pole, mainly for The New York Times. He has won the top awards in science journalism multiple times, along with a Guggenheim Fellowship. At Pace, he teaches courses in blogging, environmental communication and documentary film. He has written acclaimed books on global warming, the changing Arctic and the assault on the Amazon rain forest, as well as three book chapters on science communication. Drawing on his experience with his Times blog, Dot Earth, which Time Magazine named one of the top 25 blogs in 2013, Revkin speaks to audiences around the world about the power of the Web to foster progress. He’s also a performing songwriter, was a longtime accompanist for Pete Seeger and recently released his first album of original songs, which was hailed as a “tasty mix of roots goulash” on Jambands, an influential music website. Two films have been based on his work: “Rock Star” (Warner Brothers, 2001) and “The Burning Season” (HBO, 1994).
