In the Hottest Year, the Hottest Fight
Bill McKibben, writer, environmentalist, and climate change prophet, is a professor at Middlebury College and a founder of the grassroots climate campaign 350.org. His many books include The End of Nature, Eaarth, and, most recently, Oil and Honey. In 2011, he spent three days in jail after leading the largest civil disobedience protest in thirty years to protest the Keystone XL pipeline. In 2014, a new species of woodland gnat — Megophthalmidia mckibbeni — was named in his honor.
