Bill McKibben – Author of The End of Nature | Environmentalist
Of all the challenges the planet faces, none is as large as its fast-heating climate—and no one has worked longer or harder than climate change speaker Bill McKibben both to document and fight that ever-growing crisis. The author of the first book about global warming—1989’s The End of Nature—McKibben went on to found 350.org, which has become the biggest grassroots climate campaign in the world. His latest book, Falter—already a New York Times bestseller—offers a call-to-arms, 30 years after The End of Nature set the stage. Hopeful but realistic, McKibben “combines fear of bad outcomes with hope for good outcomes,” says The New York Times.
