Environmental activist Bill McKibben will speak to the Vermont Legislature about climate change and how it relates to the state.

House Speaker Shap Smith said he’s invited McKibben to speak Wednesday afternoon.

McKibben’s been supporting a campaign to get resolutions on town meeting day ballots that oppose the shipment of tar-sands oil across northeastern sections of the state.

Smith’s office says it prioritizes climate change as one of the most important challenges facing the state.
