    Mr. Revkin has reported on science and the environment for more than three decades, from the Amazon to the White House, the Hudson Valley to the North Pole, mainly for The New York Times. He has written on global warming science and solutions and energy issues since the 1980s and is among those credited with first proposing that we have entered a “geological age of our own making,” known increasingly as the Anthropocene. Mr. Revkin has won the top awards in science journalism multiple times, along with a Guggenheim Fellowship. He has written acclaimed books on global warming, the changing Arctic and the violent assault on the Amazon rainforest. He authors a New York Times blog, Dot Earth, which Time Magazine named one of the top 25 blogs in 2013.
