Climate Ch-Ch-Changing (NYC)
Join climate scientist Michael Oppenheimer, PhD, and climate journalist Andrew Revkin as they discuss climate science and coverage on March 30 in NYC.
It is rare for questions to flow in two directions between a scientist and a science journalist, but on an issue as fraught and complex as human-driven global warming—with both the physical climate and communications climate in flux—there’s never been a more important moment for such a conversation.
Join the Pace Academy for Applied Environmental Studies on Monday, March 30 for a climate-insider double headliner: “On Climate Science and Coverage—What Three Decades Have Taught Us.” Michael Oppenheimer, PhD, a veteran climate scientist, and Andrew Revkin, a longtime climate journalist, take questions from each other and the audience, exploring their learning curves, frustrations, and hopes as each confronts his fourth decade working on this epic issue.
Monday, March 30
5:00 p.m.–6:30 p.m.
Lecture Hall North, NYC Campus
This event is free and open to the public. RSVP by Thursday, March 26.

This event is sponsored by Pace University Academy for Applied Environmental Studies, the Dyson College Department of Environmental Studies and Science, and Wallerstein Collaborative for Urban Environmental Education at NYU Steinhardt School of Culture Education and Human Development. Oppenheimer is the 2015 Pace Academy Visiting Fellow.
Michael Oppenheimer, PhD, is a Princeton University climate scientist and past lead author on several reports of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. He has spent decades assessing the causes and consequences of climate change and, in an earlier role as senior scientist at the Environmental Defense Fund, advocating for reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.
Andrew Revkin first wrote about the human-climate relationship 30 years ago and has stuck with this tough story ever since, including through 20 years of writing for The New York Times, both as a news reporter and, since 2010, in his prize-winning “Dot Earth” blog for the online Opinion section. That is also the year he joined Pace University’s Pace Academy for Applied Environmental Studies as Senior Fellow for Environmental Understanding. He teaches courses in environmental and online communication and documentary film.
Oppenheimer and Revkin got to know each other in 1992, when Revkin wrote Global Warming: Understanding the Forecast, the companion book for the first museum exhibition on global warming, staged at the American Museum of Natural History but developed in a partnership with EDF. They have been in a reporter-source relationship ever since.
