Kale Roberts, Blogging Coordinator
Kale Roberts is the blogging coordinator for MOTHER EARTH NEWS and a Rachel Carson Scholar at the Bard Center for Environmental Policy in Hudson Valley, N.Y., where he studies Climate Science and Policy.
Kale was a member of the MOTHER EARTH NEWS editorial team from 2012-2014, where he worked as the renewable energy beat editor. A native Missourian, he moved to redwood country in 2005 to attend Humboldt State University in Arcata, Calif., where he worked as a program coordinator for the Alliance to Save Energy’s PowerSave Program and as an energy specialist intern with the Redwood Coast Energy Authority.
After earning a degree in environmental science in 2009, Kale served as a U.S. Peace Corps volunteer in the Kingdom of Thailand. He attributes his few handy skills to these two years harvesting rainwater and plowing jasmine rice fields. His primary projects were to build biogas methane digesters to convert water buffalo manure to clean-burning cooking fuel and to support the community forestry group with their conservation goals through grant-writing and consultation.
