Author and environmental activist Bill McKibben will present “Hot Times: Reports from the Front Lines of the Climate Fight” at Ithaca College on Wednesday, April 11. Part of Sustainability Week at the college, his talk is scheduled for 7 p.m. in Glazer Arena of the Athletics and Events Center. It is free and open to the public.
McKibben’s 1989 book “The End of Nature” is regarded as the first book for a general audience about climate change. As a founder of the global climate change movement 350.org, McKibben has helped organize rallies around the world, spearheaded the resistance to the Keystone Pipeline and launched the fast-growing fossil fuel divestment movement.
