Lecture by author, educator, environmentalist, and 350.org founder Bill McKibben. McKibben has been instrumental in raising awareness about global climate change. His essays have been featured in Harper’s, Orion, Rolling Stone, and the New York Times. Through 350.org McKibben helped organize a global climate change rally of unprecedented proportions, with over 5,000 demonstrations in 181 countries.
