On Friday, June 5th, KZFR and Butte Environmental Council will present Bill McKibben, author, honored environmental activist and climate change expert. In 2014, Bill McKibben received the Right Livelihood Prize, sometimes called the “alternative Nobel.” He’s a founder of 350.org, the first planet-wide, grassroots climate change movement, which has organized twenty thousand rallies around the world. He also headed the resistance to the Keystone Pipeline and started the fast-growing fossil fuel divestment movement.
The title of Mr. McKibben’s talk is “Updates from the Front Lines of the Climate Fight .”
