New York Times Environmental journalist Andrew Revkin visited the Cornell campus on September 24-25 for a series of conversations with students and researchers, peaking with the public lecture, "Important Science in an Urgent Age" touching on hydrofracking issues and science communication.  This was the second installment in the Atkinson Center’s “Outside Voices Speaker Series” intended to bring prominent voices on the national or international stage to campus to discuss timely sustainability topics.

The talk, moderated by Drew Harvell, was well attended, drawing from across the Cornell and broader Ithaca communities.  Video coverage of the lecture is available online.

Revkin mentioned the visit in his DotEarth blog.  The lecture was also covered in the Cornell Chronicle, and Cornell Daily Sun.
