One of the most impassioned figures on the frontlines of environmental change today is Bill McKibben, author of what is regarded as the first book for a general audience about climate change, The End of Nature. In the decades since, he's written extensively, including Oil and Honey, a new book on small-scale local answers and how he became an "unlikely activist" who went to jail for protesting the Keystone Pipeline. McKibben comes to CHF to talk about the accelerating pace of climate change—and hastened efforts to slow it down.
