Sarah Parsons is a freelance writer and editor living in New York City. After learning about deforestation of the rainforest at seven years old, she wrote a strong-worded letter to President H.W. Bush complete with a drawing depicting the plight of homeless gorillas. It was then that her future as an environmentalist became clear. After graduating from Syracuse, she moved to New York and began her career as an environmental journalist. Over the past three years, she’s written about everything from endangered golden lion tamarins to the economic costs associated with unabated climate change. In addition to covering energy and technology for Inhabitat, Sarah has also written for Plenty, Popular Science, Audubon and OnEarth.
