I explore the balance between human affairs and the environment for The New York Times at my blog, Dot Earth, and as the senior fellow for environmental understanding at Pace University's Academy for Applied Environmental Studies. In spare moments I write songs and perform in a rootsy twangy band, Uncle Wade.
Been to the North Pole; sailed 2/3 of the way around the Earth (New Zealand to Italy); sung with Pete Seeger.
