"Do the Math" with Bill McKibben

Climate Action Hobart is hosting a live broadcast of Bill McKibben's "Do the Math" Canberra event on June 5 at The Centenary Lecture Theatre, UTAS, 7.15 for 7.30 pm.

A truly inspiring speaker and activist, in 2009 Bill co-founded the grassroots climate campaign 350.org, which has coordinated 15,000 rallies in 189 countries.

His Australian tour is the first international leg of Bill McKibben’s hugely successful 'Do the Math' tour through the USA following publication of his article, Global Warming’s Terrifying New Math, in Rolling Stone magazine. The article went viral and inspired renewed vigour in communities fighting global warming across the USA and the world.

On his Australian tour, Bill McKibben will be presenting his clear-eyed view of the global warming maths in the Australian context and what we can do to subtract from the terrifying total.

Here him live from Canberra on June 5.

"Bill McKibben is the most effective environmental activist of our age. Anyone interested in making a difference to our world can learn from him."
