University bookshelf: Oil and Honey by Bill McKibben
In July 2016, Appalachian will host the 5th Annual Energy Summit — a collective effort by the 17 institutions in the UNC system, on target to save North Carolina $2 billion in avoided energy costs by 2025. Appalachian has facilitated this system-wide effort; without the efforts of Appalachian campus leadership this remarkable initiative would not have come to fruition. Our keynote speaker, July 18, is 2013 Ghandi Peace Prize winner Bill McKibben, an American environmentalist, author, and journalist who has written extensively on the impact of global warming. “Oil and Honey” is his most recent publication.
