Bill McKibben, "the planet's best green journalist" (Time Magazine) and "probably the country's most important environmentalist" (Boston Globe) is the author of a dozen books about the environment and the founder of the dynamic grassroots climate campaign 350.org, which has coordinated more than 15,000 rallies in nearly 200 countries since 2009.  He holds honorary degrees from a dozen colleges, including the Universities of Massachusetts and Maine, the State University of New York, and Whittier and Colgate Colleges. In 2011 he was elected a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.  He has written for The New York Times, The Atlantic Monthly, Harper's, Mother Jones, The New York Review of Books, Granta, Rolling Stone, and Outside. He has been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship and the Lannan Prize.

350.org is an international grassroots campaign to mobilize a global climate movement united by a common call to action. An independent and not-for-profit project, 350.org is spreading an understanding of climate science and a shared vision for a fair policy to ensure the world creates bold and equitable solutions to the climate crisis.  Clearly this is particularly crucial in an era in which the leading contenders for the U.S. presidency do not mention the primary threat to the planet.

Do the Math! will be an evening of informed, enlightened talk, video and music designed to spark the first full-on challenge to the fossil fuel industry.  Surprise guests will be announced prior to the event, which McKibben describes as "a little like a TED talk, but somewhat longer and a lot more dangerous."

Josh Fox is the Academy-Award nominated Director of Gasland.

Brian Edwards-Tiekert is a producer and the host of KPFA's popular morning program UpFront.

Oregon-native Nahko, born a mix of Apache, Puerto Rican, and Filipino cultures and adopted into an American family, suffered an identity crisis from an early age. But the unifying power of music entered his life as a healing remedy, when he took up the piano at age six. Armed with his newfound talent, he set out to bridge the cultural gaps dividing his own psyche and began producing a public, musical journal of his journey toward personal, spiritual, and communal healing.

From his hometown of Portland to the shores of Hawaii or Bali, wherever he has traveled, Nahko is joined by a tribe of culturally alienated truth seekers for whom Nahko's story resonates with their own, and who find redemption in his voice, guitar, flute, and drum. Whether solo or with the dynamic group of musical troubadours known as "Medicine for the People," Nahko delivers a soulful dose of curative vibrations that moves audiences to dance, laugh, and cry. His 'spirited redemption music' lays bear the scars of cultural wounds, environmental wrongs, and social injustices. His lyrics bear the burden of heavy messages, but the load is lightened by agile melodies and driving rhythms that coerce all who bear witness into spirited, purifying, movement. His humor disarms, and his lyrical stories open listeners to the power of "Real Talk Music"songs that reveal an honesty and depth so raw, it inspires an internal revival that echoes out into the world. Sometimes exuberant, sometimes savage, but always transformational, Nahko makes the movement move.
