Bill McKibben

PENELOPE BASS
7:30 pm., Tuesday September 24 | $20-$36.
Newmark Theatre
1111 SW Broadway
 
Like Al Gore with a personality, author and environmentalist Bill McKibben (The End of Nature, Eaarth) has long advocated for action on our most critical environmental issues. He led the largest civil disobedience gathering in 30 years when he protested the Keystone XL pipeline in front of the White House in 2011, resulting in his arrest. In his new book, Oil and Honey: The Education of an Unlikely Activist, McKibben describes his involvement in the global climate fight and the need to come at the problem both on a local scale—such as his partnering with a Vermont beekeeper advocating the local food movement—and the larger fight against the fossil fuel giants.
