Have we become so potent a force on Earth that a geological epoch should have our name? Can there be any kind of good path for our species in a time of such rapid and disruptive environmental change? Andrew Revkin, a prize-winning journalist and author who helped coin the term Anthropocene and has reported on humanity’s growing pains for more than 30 years, describes his learning journey, from the Amazon to the North Pole to the Vatican. He offers a prescription that is both unnerving and hopeful.

Andrew Revkin is one of America’s most honored and experienced journalists and authors focused on environmental and human sustainability and efforts to use new communication tools to foster progress on a finite, fast-forward planet. In the spring of 2018, he joined the staff of the National Geographic Society as strategic adviser for environmental and science journalism.
