SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (AP) - Author Bill McKibben has opened a Sierra Nevada conservation conference with a call for a "coordinated, global" effort to deal with climate change.

McKibben, in a keynote address at the Sierra Nevada Alliance's annual conference in South Lake Tahoe, says change being made on the local level to combat climate change will do little good unless it's accompanied by change on a global level.

The activist is founder of, an international movement aimed at solving the climate crisis with representatives in some 190 countries.

The three-day conference, which began with McKibben's speech Friday, also will feature a session on the impact of climate change on Western wildfires as well as workshops and field trips.

The alliance consists of over 85 member conservation groups that work to protect the Sierra.
