Columnist and New York Times best-selling co-author Dr. Thomas Kostigen will share how an individual's everyday actions can impact the environment at a special presentation at 7 p.m., Monday, Nov. 10 in Doane College's Heckman Auditorium.

Kostigen has spent nearly two decades exploring issues related to global warming, the environment, social issues and governmental policies and has traveled to many environmental hot spots around the world to investigate the effect of man on the planet. His goal is to educate and encourage his audiences to make changes in their businesses and lives.
