DIANNE DUMANOSKI is an author and environmental journalist whose work in the field dates back to the first Earth Day in 1970. She has reported on a wide range of environmental and energy issues for broadcast and print media and has been among the pioneers reporting on a new generation of global environmental issues.

Dianne's book The End of the Long Summer, which received a starred review in Booklist, looks beyond the specific symptoms of planetary distress— climate change, the destruction of the ozone layer, the world wide loss of species, the growing threats to the oceans, pervasive chemical contamination of food webs everywhere on Earth— to ask the larger question: what fundamentally ails us?

She also wrote Our Stolen Future in collaboration with co-authors Theo Colborn and J.P. Myers. This influential, best-selling volume, now translated into 15 languages, transformed the scientific discussion about the health effects of hormone-disrupting chemicals into a public policy debate, spurred Congressional legislation, and stimulated far-ranging scientific research into the questions it raised.

"Dianne Dumanoski understands, as few have, the scale of the changes coming at us from our warming planet, and the scale of the changes we must make in return. A timely book, and a deep one!"

—Bill McKibben, author of Deep Economy and Fight Global Warming Now
