Is it possible to create a 'knowosphere' that enhances public communication about the global environment and fosters more constructive discussion about the future of this finite planet?
Noted science journalist Andrew Revkin, who blogs on sustainability issues at The New York Times' Dot Earth and teaches at Pace University, presents an optimistic, but realistic, exploration of ways to fill the information gaps left by shrinking mainstream media, a divisive blogosphere, and strangled public budgets.
