Bill McKibben, Professor of  Environmental Studies, Middlebury College
“We’re Behind at the Top of the Home Stretch, But Starting to Close.” So says Middlebury professor Bill McKibben, who has been writing about climate change since 1989. His work appears regularly in The New Yorker Magazine and elsewhere. He helped found the grassroots group 350.org, which advocates divestment from fossil fuel companies.

Moderator: Erich Osterberg
Associate Professor of Earth Sciences, Dartmouth College. Erich studies earth’s climate system and glaciers. His specialty is collecting and analyzing ice cores from remote polar regions and mountaintops to study changes in storminess, snowfall, temperature and air pollution.
