Since 1995, I've been a reporter for THE NEW YORK TIMES, covering environmental issues and, once in a sad while, calamities (9/11, Hurricane Katrina, the Asian tsunami). I'm also an author of books on the AMAZON, GLOBAL WARMING, and the NORTH POLE. In spare moments, I'm a performing songwriter and part of a fun retro-rootsy band called UNCLE WADE ( www.myspace.com/unclewade ).
I live in New York's Hudson River Valley with my wife (a middle-school science teacher) and two sons (8 and 16). My passions are family, music, and the truth. I write about music once in awhile. One story, on a tribute-band singer who replaced the lead singer of Judas Priest in 1997, was the basis for the movie ROCK STAR, starring Mark Wahlberg & Jennifer Aniston.
