Paul Roberts

American journalist and author of two non-fiction books, The End of Oil and The End of Food


Author Paul Roberts writes and lectures frequently on the complex interplay of economics, technology, and the natural world. His most recent book, the End of Food, (2008), was described by Michael Pollan as “the best analysis of the global food economy you are likely to find." The End of Food follows the successful publication of Roberts's first book, The End of Oil (2004), which the New York Review of Books called “perhaps the best single book ever produced about our energy economy and its environmental implications.”

A journalist since 1983, Roberts has also written for The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, and The (UK) Guardian and his work has appeared in Slate, USA Today, The New Republic, Newsweek, The Christian Science Monitor, Rolling Stone, and Outside magazine.  

Roberts has delivered lectures and keynotes to a variety of organizations, including the World Economic Forum (Davos), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Biotechnology Industry Organization, the Council on Foreign Relations, and the World Affairs Council.

Roberts has been a finalist for the National Magazine Award and for the New York Public Library Helen Bernstein Book Award for Excellence in Journalism. 

A long-time observer of energy issues and politics, Roberts appears regularly on national and international television and radio news shows, including BBC, CNBC with Erin Burnett, PBS NewsHour, MSNBC, CBS Evening News, and on NPR’s Morning Edition, On Point, Weekend Edition, and Fresh Air.
