Environmental activist and founder of 350.org Bill McKibben will be at The Well to discuss coal, climate change, and the PNW. His group 350.org is so named to highlight the parts per million of carbon that scientists say is the maximum amount allowed for a health and well being.
Currently, the parts per million of carbon is much higher and rising. Bill warns of warming oceans, melting ice caps, increased volatility in weather, and the effects this has on all people, especially people who are poor or living in “developing countries.” Bill is leading a movement to divest from oil companies that is sweeping our nation’s colleges and universities. He is one of the most important voices in our country today…on any subject. Seating will be limited.
