I'm a lifelong journalist who specializes in environmental topics, especially global climate change, the transition to clean energy, and policies related to river and coastal flooding. I am a former senior official at the US Department of Energy, now a private consultant. My books include The Indefensible Society, The 100 Day Action Plan to Save the Planet, and The Creeks Will Rise: People Coexisting With Floods." I began my career in 1966 as a decorated US Army combat correspondent in Vietnam. I am based near Madison, WI.
