Kahn Humanities Lecture: Bill McKibben
Bill McKibben is an author and environmentalist who in 2014 was awarded the Right Livelihood Prize, sometimes called the alternative Nobel. His 1989 book The End of Nature is regarded as the first book for a general audience about climate change, and has appeared in 24 languages; hes gone on to write a dozen more books. He is a founder of 350.org, the first planet-wide, grassroots climate change movement, which has organized twenty  thousand rallies around the world in every country save North Korea, spearheaded the resistance to the Keystone Pipeline, and launched the fast-growing fossil fuel divestment movement.  

The Schumann Distinguished Scholar in Environmental Studies at Middlebury College and a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, McKibben will discuss, in his appearance in the Library's Kahn Humanities Lecture series, environmental activism under the new regime of climate science denialism, and will describe strategies for inclusion of all groups in the movement's work and messaging.
