Andrew Revkin, a superb reporter and a wonderful guy, is retiring from covering the climate on a regular basis. He's taking a buy-out from The New York Times.
That's the bad news. The good news is that he will continue to maintain his first-rate global sustainability blog, Dot Earth, and write books as well.
As a long-time follower and an occasional interviewer, yours truly is sorry to see him go. Revkin sincerely loves science, beyond doubt, and was wearying of the climate wars. Both the denialists and the true believers in climate change claimed him for their side at times, and complained about him at other times.
What better proof of his moderation?
