(True Believers, Power Brokers, and the Fight to Save the Earth)
Eric Pooley, Deputy Editor of Bloomberg Businessweek, will present his findings from three years of research into the political terrain surrounding efforts to combat climate change. His access to key players and decades of experience as a journalist led him to write the widely acclaimed “The Climate War."
Eric Pooley is
Deputy Editor of Bloomberg Businessweek. Mr. Pooley has been
recognized with many awards and honors, including a 2001 National
Magazine Award (for Time’s single-topic issue on the September 11
attacks, which he helped edit), the 1996 Gerald R. Ford Prize for
Distinguished Reporting on the Presidency (for his coverage of the
Clinton Administration), and four Henry R. Luce awards from Time Inc.
He is also a three-time finalist for the National Magazine
categories ranging from General Excellence (for his editorship of
Fortune) to Public Service (for a Time cover story that temporarily
shut down an unsafe nuclear power plant in Connecticut).
Mr. Pooley has written about climate politics for Time, Slate, Bloomberg News and other publications. In the fall of 2008 he studied press coverage of the issue at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, where he was a Kalb Fellow at the Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy. He was a featured commentator in Heat, the 2008 PBS Frontline global warming documentary, and has appeared on Nightline, Charlie Rose, The CBS Evening News, NBC Nightly News, Larry King Live, Anderson Cooper 360, All Things Considered, and many other programs.
In 2002 Mr. Pooley was named editor of Time Europe, the London-based international edition of Time, and three years later he became managing editor of Fortune, responsible for all global editorial operations of the magazine. In 2007 he left Time Inc. and began work on The Climate War. In 2009 he began writing a climate and energy column for Bloomberg News, and in February 2010 he was named deputy editor of Bloomberg BusinessWeek.
Pooley began his journalism career as a freelance reporter in East
Germany before the fall of the Berlin Wall. In the late 1980s and early
1990s he was an award-winning feature writer, political columnist and
senior editor for New York magazine. He joined Time in 1995
White House correspondent and went on to serve as the magazine’s chief
