Bill McKibben: Global and Local: Building a Movement to Solve the Climate Crisis
World-renowned environmentalist, author and journalist Bill McKibben will talk about Global and Local: Building a Movement to Solve the Climate Crisis. He'll describe the international grassroots effort to challenge the power of the fossil fuel industry, let people see what their allies around the planet look like, and show how local action fits into this planetary effort.
Bill McKibben is the author of a dozen books about the
environment, beginning with The End of Nature in 1989, which is regarded as the first book for a general audience on climate change. He is a founder of the grassroots climate campaign 350.org, which has coordinated 15,000 rallies in 189 countries since 2009. Time Magazine called him 'the planet's best green journalist' and the Boston Globe said in 2010 that he was 'probably the country's most important environmentalist.'
His latest book, Eaarth, will be available for sale and signing.
