Journalist Andrew C. Revkin to Speak at Sage Nov. 3

November 2, 2011 at 3:16 pm


For more than a quarter of a century, Andrew C. Revkin has been a writer – and an advocate – and as Revkin reveals, “I am an advocate, for sure - for reality."

A noted environmental journalist and author, Andrew C. Revkin, will speak on “Writing about Science for an Audience of Humanists,” on Thursday, November 3 at 7:30 p.m. at Bush Memorial, The Sage Colleges Troy campus. 

Presently a senior fellow at the Pace Academy for Applied Environmental Studies at Pace University, Revkin has held senior editor positions at Discover magazine, and Science Digest and covered the environment for The New York Times from 1995 through 2009. 

The author of several books, Revkin presently writes his Dot Earth blog for The New York Times Op-Ed section.  Dot Earth “examines efforts to balance human affairs with the planet’s limits.”  On his blog, Revkin claims, "I’ll try to maintain the discipline to be “caustically honest” in weighing the issues and opportunities confronting humanity as its astonishing 200 years and counting growth spurt crests. As a freelance blogger, I will say what I think in ways I could not when I was a Times reporter."   

Revkin graduated from Brown University with a degree in biology in 1978 and earned a master’s in journalism from Columbia University. 

The lecture, endowed by The Sherman David Spector fund, is free and open to the public.
