Andrew Revkin
Journalist and Author
National Geographic Society

Entering his fourth decade reporting on global warming science and policy, from the North Pole to the White House to the Vatican, Andy Revkin lays out his biggest mistakes and most surprising insights, including how in a 1992 book he proposed humans were creating a post-Holocene "geological age of our own making" almost a decade before scientists formally proposed an Anthropocene epoch. Revkin will offer fresh strategies for effectively communicating climate risks and building a more sustainable relationship between people and this dynamic planet. He also will discuss the evolution of the National Geographic Society, where he now works, into a major conservation grant-making organization. And there may be a song in the mix.
