Bill McKibben informs us about the next chapter in the battle against climate change. He is founder and senior adviser emeritus of 350.org, the first global grassroots climate campaign, and has organized on every continent, including Antarctica, for climate action. 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. His most recent book is Falter: Has the Human Game Begun to Play Itself Out?

Born in Palo Alto, Bill graduated from Harvard '82, and was a staff writer for The New Yorker for 5 years. His work appears in media spanning Rolling Stone, 60 Minutes and Amanpour & Co. He serves as the Schumann Distinguished Scholar in Environmental Studies at Middlebury College, as a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and he has won the Gandhi Peace Prize as well as honorary degrees from 19 colleges and universities. He was awarded the Right Livelihood Award, sometimes called the alternative Nobel, in the Swedish Parliament. Foreign Policy named him to its inaugural list of the world’s 100 most important global thinkers.
