Bill McKibben is one of the heroes of the sustainability movement. He has been leading the fight against global warming for over 20 years, since he wrote the first book for a general audience on the subject, The End of Nature, in 1989. Bill thoroughly understands that taking on the climate crisis is going to take more than a few good books—it's going to take a movement—so he founded 350.org, an international climate campaign that works in 188 countries around the world. Join Green Builder Media President Ron Jones on December 10 at 2 ET for a lively and candid conversation with McKibben about the realities of a changing climate and solutions for a sustainable future.
