Mason Inman got started as a journalist through the excellent year-long Science Writing Program at the University of California in Santa Cruz.
Eventually Mason became obsessed after learning of the notion of peak oil and the fascinating scientist M. King Hubbert, whose name is nearly synonymous with the concept, and would spend more than five years researching and writing The Oracle of Oil.
Mason also works part-time for the non-profit Near Zero, which produces scientific assessments of energy and climate issues, drawing on input from top researchers. As part of this work, I co-authored the study, "The effect of natural gas supply on US renewable energy and CO2 emissions," published in Environmental Research Letters in 2014.
For the past several years, Mason has focused on climate change and energy, but has covered diverse subjects including cosmology, evolution, and archaeology. His articles have appeared in National Geographic News, Nature, Science, New Scientist, Economist.com, Wired.com, and other outlets.
