Bill McKibben, Schumann Distinguished Scholar at Middlebury College and author of a dozen books about the environment, beginning with "The End of Nature" in 1989, which is regarded as the first book for a general audience on climate change. The group he founded, 350.org, has coordinated 15,000 rallies in 189 countries since 2009. The Boston Globe said in 2010 that he was "probably the country’s most important environmentalist."

Interview with Paul Anastas, professor at Yale University’s School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, conducted by Melinda Tuhus
An alarming new report by researchers finds that temperatures in West Antarctica are warming at twice the rate than earlier believed and three times the worldwide global warming average, making that area in Antarctica one of the fastest-warming regions on earth. The paper released on Dec. 23 by the journal Nature Geoscience, reports that the temperatures recorded at a research station in the center of West Antarctica have risen 4.4 degrees Fahrenheit since 1958. Scientists say that this data forecasts a potential breakup of the enormous ice sheet there which could raise global sea levels by 10 feet or more in the next century.
Paul Anastas, professor in the Practice of Chemistry for the Environment at Yale University’s School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, just returned from a private trip to Antarctica with a group of other scientists. Anastas, who served more than two years as the science adviser to President Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson, was in Antarctica from Dec. 7 through 21, which is the summer solstice in the southern hemisphere.
Between The Lines’ Melinda Tuhus spoke with Anastas soon after his return from Antarctica. He began by explaining the difference between land-based ice and sea-based ice as a factor in rising sea levels triggered by rising temperatures resulting from global climate change.
Paul Anastas is director of Yale University’s Center for Green Chemistry and Green Engineering – and former EPA science adviser from 2010 to March of this year. Find more information on rising temperatures in Antarctica and global climate change at http://environment.yale.edu/.
