When he's not sheepishly posting stuff on our lousy site, Jim writes on environmental topics for The New York Times, CBS MoneyWatch, Hearst's Daily Green, Mother Nature Network and others. He is author or editor of six books, including Forward Drive: The Race to Build Clean Cars for the Future, Feeling the Heat: Dispatches from the Frontlines of Climate Change, and Naked in the Woods: Joseph Knowles and the Legacy of Frontier Fakery. His latest book, titled High Voltage: The Fast Track to Plug In the Auto Industry, chronicles the current period of unprecedented change in the electric vehicle market. He is also a contributor to the Environmental Defense Fund publications and to Knowledge @ Wharton at the University of Pennsylvania.
Like us, Jim hosts a radio program on WPKN-FM in Connecticut. Unlike us, angry hordes don't stand outside the studio, throwing rotten fruit. Jim lectures widely on climate, transportation and population issues.
