“Probably the country’s most important environmentalist”  
That is how the Boston Globe described Bill McKibben.  On March 25, The Congregational Church of Weston is bringing Bill McKibben to Weston High School. 

The author, educator and environmentalist has written several books on climate change.  His first book in 1989, The End Of Nature, is said to be the first book written for the general population on climate change. In addition to books, Bill is a frequent contributor to several magazines.  Among them, The New York Times, Harper’s, Rolling Stone and Grist Magazine.

Bill is an activist as well.  He is a founder of the grassroots organization 350.org which has coordinated 15,000 rallies in 189 countries since 2009.  350.org is named for the safe level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere (350 parts per million). Currently, the earth is at 393.65 parts per million.  

Currently, he resides with his wife and daughter in Vermont.  However, Bill grew up not far from here in Lexington, MA.

Come here him speak.  I haven’t had the pleasure of hearing him speak yet, but a friend of mine has said he is very motivating.
