Bill McKibben at Goddard

From McKibben's website

Although Bill McKibben spoke at Goddard a few weeks after the Individualized MA program finished itsresidency, because of his relevance to what so many of our students and faculty are concerned about — the fate of the earth, and how we can live lives of meaning in the face of that urgency — we are posting a link to his talk here. McKibben is an author, educator and environmentalist, and his latest book, Eaarth, has been deemed by many to be one of the most important books we can read:

With clarity, eloquence, deep knowledge and even deeper compassion for both planet and people, Bill McKibben guides us to the brink of a new, uncharted era. This monumental book, probably his greatest, may restore your faith in the future, with us in it.”

—Alan Weisman,
author of The World Without Us

“What I have to say about this book is very simple: Read it, please. Straight through to the end. Whatever else you were planning to do next, nothing could be more important.”

—Barbara Kingsolver,
author of Animal, Vegetable, Miracle

His talk at Goddard was part of the Individualized BA Program. Read more about Bill McKibben at his website.
