He chairs the North Slope Science Initiative's Science Technical Advisory Panel in Alaska and serves on many related committees, including a climate change advisory panel.

Editorial Reviews

PRAISE FOR COLD:

"Original and organic: it is flinty and tough-minded, with just enough humor glowing around the edges to keep you toasty and dry...Streever's prose does what E. L. Doctorow said good writing is supposed to do, which is to evoke sensation in the reader ... This book is chilling in too many ways to count."—Dwight Garner, New York Times, Dwight Garner's Top Ten Books of 2009
"Cold is a love song to science and scientists, to Earth and everything that lives on and flies over and tunnels under it. It's impossible to read the book and not fully realize that our planet must be protected."—Mary Roach, New York Times Book Review
"Fascinating...Streever's affection for cold offers intellectual air conditioning."—Irene Wanner, Los Angeles Times
