Bill McKibben Do The Math!

An evening of talk, video, and music designed to spark the first full-on challenge to the fossil fuel industry, this evening grows out of an article by Bill McKibben in a July issue of Rolling Stone. That article--which went unexpectedly viral--shows that coal, oil, and gas producers have become a kind of rogue force, with 5 times the carbon in their reserves that any scientist thinks is safe to burn. McKibben will headline the evening, which he describes "a little like a TED talk, but somewhat longer and lot more dangerous," with help from a revolving cast of scientists, activists, and musicians."


Bill McKibben wrote The End of Nature, the first book about global warming for a general audience in 1989 and is the co-founder of the international climate campaign, 350.org.
