The last time Town Hall hosted environmental activist Bill McKibben, they had a population explosion of our own and had to supersize the venue. While McKibben might be an unlikely activist, he is an effective one, thanks to his ability to telescope global issues into our local lives, and his passionate insistence that we have the power to solve these challenges. In tonight’s talk, the founder of 350.organd author of Oil and Honey recounts his quest to find deep solutions and build and preserve a sustainable planet: from spending a year with a beekeeper raising hives as part of the growing trend toward local food (honey!) to spending three days in jail after leading a protest of the Keystone XL pipeline (oil!).
