Search - List of Books by John Tierney

John Marion Tierney (born March 25, 1953) is a journalist who has worked for the New York Times since 1990.

Tierney writes a science column, Findings, and the TierneyLab blog for the Times. The TierneyLab takes a contrarian view about science and society:

In 2005 and 2006, he was a columnist on the Times Op-Ed page, before which he wrote a column about New York, "The Big City", that ran in the New York Times Magazine and the Metro section from 1994 to 2002.

Tierney identifies himself as a libertarian, and has become increasingly identified with libertarianism. His columns have been critical of rent stabilization, the war on drugs, Amtrak and compulsory recycling. His 1996 article "Recycling Is Garbage" broke the New York Times Magazine's hate mail record.

Joseph J. Romm, executive director of the Center for Energy and Climate Solutions, has written that Tierney is one of the "influential but misinformed" skeptics who have helped prevent the U.S. from taking action on Climate Change. In his 2007 book, "Hell and High Water," Romm cites, and refutes, Tierney's misinformation.

Tierney started his journalism career as an undergraduate at Yale University, where he was editor of the Yale Daily News. He went on to work for the Bergen Record and the Washington Star, and has written for magazines such as Science 86, Health and Discover.

In collaboration with novelist Christopher Buckley, Tierney co-wrote the comic novel, God Is My Broker, in parody of financial and spiritual self-help books. He also wrote The Best-Case Scenario Handbook, a parody of the popular Worst-Case Scenario Handbook series.
