Speaker: Bill McKibben

Bill McKibben Few have done more to raise public awareness or inspire action on climate change than Bill McKibben.

In 1989, McKibben first brought climate change to the public’s attention with the publication of The End of Nature. He has written on environmental issues for The New York Times, The Atlantic Monthly, Harper’s, Rolling Stone, and Outside. Recently, he has launched a campaign, Step It Up, to mobilize citizens to demand 80% cuts in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

Come hear McKibben speak on “Building the New Climate Movement” as part of Focus the Nation, a national event aimed at encouraging discussion and action on climate change.
