Blessed 350:
Bill McKibben says the climate crisis is getting so severe that civil disobedience is justified to compel the federal government to take on the fossil fuel lobby. Paul Hawken, who worked on Martin Luther King’s famed march on Montgomery, is now helping develop new standards to rate corporate social and environmental behavior. How do those approaches to change relate to each other? What types of corporations are positive change agents and what types are defenders of the status quo? Where do these two compelling authors agree and disagree? This broad ranging conversation will touch on coal, nukes, Canadian tar sands, hydraulic fracturing, organic food, socially responsible investing and much more. Join us for an afternoon with two of the most compelling and prolific environmental advocates of our time.

Paul Hawken, Author, Blessed Unrest
Bill McKibben, Founder, 350.org; Author, Eaarth
