David Wallace-Wells

David Wallace-Wells is deputy editor at New York Magazine, where he also writes often about climate, science, and the near future, including his 2017 cover story, “The Uninhabitable Earth,” on worst-case scenarios for global warming (which quickly became the most read New York Magazine story ever). Before joining New York Magazine, David was deputy editor at the Paris Review and previously served as The New York Sun’s books editor. He is currently working on a book about the meaning of global warming — not just how climate chaos will transform and degrade the planet, but also how it will shape our culture, our politics, our psychology, and our philosophy.
