About Bill McKibben
Bill is a world-renowned environmental leader. 350.org, the organization Bill co-founded in 2007, has been instrumental in building a global movement for climate solutions. Bill has been a key organizer in the fight to block the Keystone XL pipeline. A scholar-in-residence at Middlebury College in Vermont, he is the author of The End of Nature, the first book for a general audience on climate change. His most recent book is Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet.
Bill is one of the most compelling environmental speakers of our time. Bill's talks begin by acknowledging the severity of the global climate crisis, but he maps out a hopeful, concrete vision for tackling that crisis. In his talk at the CCPA-BC gala, Bill will share news of the emerging global movement for climate action, and will outline BC’s unique role in the struggle to confront global warming.

—Barbara Kingsolver, author of Animal, Vegetable, Miracle
"Bill McKibben foresaw ‘the end of nature’ very early on, and in this new book he blazes a path to help preserve nature’s greatest treasures."
