Hailed as “the world’s best green journalist” by TIME magazine, McKibben has written extensively on climate change, population, food resources, and sustainable living in outlets such as The New York Times, the Atlantic Monthly, Harper's, Orion Magazine, and Rolling Stone.
He is the author of thirteen books. The most recent, the bestselling "Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet", details the rapid onset of climate change. It was excerpted in Scientific American.
McKibben is also the co-founder of 350.org, a global grassroots movement dedicated to solving the climate crisis. The organization mounted the largest environmental rally ever, with 5,200 simultaneous demonstrations in 181 countries. It’s called 350.org because to preserve our planet scientists have urged that we reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere from its current level of 392 parts per million to below 350 parts per million.
Free and open to the public, the lecture will be held in the Cary Institute’s auditorium. No RSVP is necessary; seating will begin at 2 p.m. The event is being offered in conjunction with the Cary Institute’s Young Environmental Scientists Conference. Content will be suitable for all ages.
Books will be available for sale and there will be a brief signing opportunity following the lecture.
