Bill McKibben lecture on Climate Change and 350.org

September 17, 2009

On Monday, 27 April, 2009, Professor Bill McKibben, author, educator, environmentalist, and Co-founder and Director of the 350.org project, gave a lecture as part of the Centre for Science Communication Distinguished Communicator Lecture Series. The title of his lecture was “The Most Important Number on Earth:  Carbon, the Global, and the Local”. The mp3 recording of the lecture (45 min. 45 sec.) can be played and downloaded from the UnitTube site or you can stream it using the player below.

The author of such books as Fighting Global Warming Now, Deep Economy and The End of Nature, Bill is an environmentalist that puts the walking into talking. Bill’s current project is 350.org which is aimed at convincing politicians in the United States and elsewhere to limit emissions into the atmosphere so we can tackle global climate change. Bill McKibben is the guy Al Gore relied on as the stimulus for An Inconvenient Truth.
