With urgency, McKibben calls for global action to make 350 the target in climate change


GOSHEN, Ind. – Bill McKibben hopes that the world is ready to act fast, and aim for 350 – "the most important number in the world."

"Anything more than that is not compatible with life on this planet," the environmental author, educator and activist said. The number 350 refers to the parts per million (ppm) of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere which McKibben called the "red line" based on the most recent science when he spoke at Goshen College on March 11.
