Speaker Bio
Eric Roston has spent more than 20 years covering climate change in all its incarnations—from science, to technology, finance, business, and government.

Since 2011 he has served as Sustainability Editor for Bloomberg News, at first developing and overseeing a news website devoted to the topic. In recent years, with Bloomberg Green, he has produced stories, graphics, and video, including several that have won awards or drawn significant critical attention.

His book, The Carbon Age: How Life’s Core Element Has Become Civilization’s Greatest Threat (Bloomsbury USA), has been translated into several languages. The work traces the dynamic, fundamental science that unifies seemingly disparate parts of our experience: Climate, energy, health, industry—the fastest way to learn the most about the world is through the carbon atom.

Roston served as a senior staff analyst for the 2010-2011 White House Deepwater Horizon oil spill investigation. Previously, he wrote for TIME, in New York and Washington, DC, where he covered economics, politics, and energy.
