A journalist and multimedia producer focused on the science and impacts of global warming, Dan Grossman uses words, images, and sounds to bring home what is happening to our human and natural world. Organizing his work around extended expeditions, he has reported from every continent as well as from the Arctic and Antarctic. Bill McKibben credits him with “getting under listeners’ skins” with his unique style of reporting.
Grossman has received many of the most prestigious awards in science journalism. His work has been honored by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Institute of Biological Sciences, and the Society of Environmental Journalists. He shares a Peabody Award, the highest honor in broadcast journalism, and his projects have merited financial support from the National Science Foundation, the Fund for Investigative Journalism, and the Alicia Patterson Foundation.
Grossman has produced stories and documentaries on science and the environment for NPR (Weekend Edition), Public Radio International (The World and Living on Earth), the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, BBC, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, CBS’s The Osgood File, Deutsche Welle, MSNBC, Radio Netherlands, Soundprint, WGBH, and WBUR. He is also much in demand as a media guest.
On the print side, Grossman has written features for The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Scientific American, and numerous other publications. He is a Contributing Editor of the News Watch site of National Geographic, and he coauthored the book A Scientist's Guide To Talking With The Media for the Union of Concerned Scientists.
As a video producer, Grossman has interviewed scientists in their laboratories and at their field camps, and average people in their homes and on the street. His short features include Rising Waters: India’s Sunderbans (about islands threatened by sea level rise) and Voyage of Icebreaker Oden (about scientific studies of how global warming is affecting Antarctica).
Trained as a scientist before changing focus to the communication of vital scientific stories on climate and the environment, he holds a B.S. in physics and a doctorate in political science, both from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Ross Gelbspan, author of The Heat Is On and Boiling Point, calls Dan Grossman’s presentations “accessible, humane, and understandable to every audience you can imagine.” He speaks on what is happening to the world and its remotest corners as global warming takes hold. Using multiple media, he displays the impacts on wildlife, people, and global climate-related systems. Listeners leave his talks better prepared to understand, cope with and combat the critical changes to Earth’s climate. He also speaks about lessons learned from his career as an environmental and science journalist, as well as about how scientists can be more effective communicators when talking with the news media.
