Prize-winning journalist, online communicator, and author, Andrew Revkin speaks about the power of the Web to foster progress on a finite planet.

He is the senior fellow for environmental understanding at Pace University's Academy for Applied Environmental Studies where he teaches courses on blogging, environmental-science communication and documentary video with a focus on sustainable development. He writes the award-winning Dot Earth blog in the Op-Ed section of The New York Times.
