Scott Dodd is the editorial director at NRDC, publisher of the award-winning OnEarth magazine. As a newspaper reporter for more than a decade, he covered crime, business, sports, politics, and breaking news, including two plane crashes and a Super Bowl. He contributed to reporting on Hurricane Katrina that won a Pulitzer Prize. After a mid-career fellowship at Columbia University, where he now teaches as an adjunct professor, Scott freelanced for science magazines and various nonprofits, then helped rebuild OnEarth as a leader in digital media, earning praise from Columbia Journalism Review and numerous industry awards and accolades. Now he considers it his mission to keep serious (and seriously fun) environmental journalism off the endangered species list.
