CFM Helps Sponsor NY Times Environmental Lecture

CFM is helping Ecotrust sponsor a free lecture by Andrew Revkin of The New York Times, considered to be the world's leading environment reporter. He will appear at 7:30 p.m., November 10 at Portland State University’s Smith Ballroom, 1825 SW Broadway.

Revkin's Portland talk is part of his "Nine Billion People, One Planet" lecture series. Free tickets – two per person – are available at the PSU box office at Smith Memorial Student Union.

He has spent nearly a quarter century covering subjects ranging from Hurricane Katrina and the Asian tsunami to the assault on the Amazon, from the troubled relationship of science and politics to climate change at the North Pole. Revkin has been reporting on the environment for The New York Times since 1995, a job that has taken him to the Arctic three times in three years.

Before joining The Times, Revkin was a senior editor of Discover, a staff writer for the Los Angeles Times, and a senior writer at Science Digest. Revkin has a biology degree from Brown and a Master's degree in journalism from Columbia. He has taught environmental reporting as an adjunct professor at Columbia's Graduate School of Journalism.
