David Fogarty started as a science writer in 1986 while still at university in Canberra, Australia, where he studied life sciences and communications. Some of his first stories were on climate change, back then still an emerging issue.
He’s since worked on newspapers in Australia, London and Hong Kong and worked for Reuters for 19 years, maintaining a passion for the environment and climate change. He was Reuters’ climate change correspondent for Asia from 2008-12 and now runs a specialist media consultancy in Singapore. He still writes stories about climate science and rainforests.
