Chris is one of the most distinctive, provocative voices writing about environmental issues today, arguing that people’s preconceptions — political, religious, cultural — color the way they view science. More fundamentally, Chris has built a loyal audience through solid reporting and vivid, authoritative writing. His approach is to look for the compelling ideas behind topics that can otherwise become arcane, leading him to write thoughtful pieces on such subjects as how melting ice caps could create a permanent Superstorm Sandy and how conservative Christians can convince skeptics about climate change.
He will start as part of Wonkblog, and build toward the future rollout of a standalone blog that will pull together the excellent work of The Post’s all-star roster of energy and environment writers. Stay tuned for more details on that.
Meanwhile, please join us in welcoming Chris when he starts Oct. 20.
