About the Author

Dr. Jonathan Harrington is an associate professor of international relations at Troy University. An experienced teacher and expert on environmental politics and policy, Jonathan has been educating students and the public about environmental issues for more than 15 years. He has published numerous articles and book chapters on environment and development related topics. Fluent in Mandarin Chinese, Dr. Harrington has spent many years living and working in East Asia and has travelled to more than 35 countries. He has hosted, organized and spoken at international conferences in Japan, New Zealand, Hong Kong and the United States.

His most recent book, The Climate Diet (Earthscan 2008), presents a compelling case for the proposition that global warming is in our back yard, is a clear and present danger and will bring even greater suffering to our families, communities and world if we do not take action now. Drawing from his own personal experiences, both at home and overseas, he directly confronts tough questions about how this problem came about and what we can do to overcome it. He offers an optimistic, easy to understand and engaging message; that individuals, organizations and communities can empower themselves to decrease their impact on the climate (and save money). His love for nature and overriding concern about the future of all the “backyards” that he has lived in over the years; Shanghai, London, Hyderabad, Taipei, Tokyo, Honolulu, and Utah among others, are vividly expressed in his book. Jonathan lives with his wife and daughter in the Seattle area.

Dr. Harrington is periodically avaialble for speaking engagements. Please send your expression of interest or any other questions you may have about The Climate Diet to jianan11@msn.com.
