Posted on October 25, 2007, Revkin's first entry on Dot Earth was on "Cutting Greenhouse Gases for Cash Prizes". In April 2010, "after 940 posts as a news blog", The New York Times moved Dot Earth to the "Opinion side" of its online site. After nine years and 2,810 posts, Revkin ended the blog on 5 December, 2016, just before he began work as a senior reporter for Propublica.
According to a Pace University press release—an institution with which the blog's author is associated, the blog "is ... read by millions of people in more than 200 countries from Brazil to China".
