Mindy Kimball ’05 earned a master’s degree in geology at California State University, East Bay. Her studies at the University helped convince her that global warming presents a real peril.

Since then, the 35-year-old has blended a career as an Army officer with speaking engagements as a representative of The Climate Project, an advocacy group founded by former vice president Al Gore. In addition, a photo Kimball took in the Death Valley desert while on a Cal State East Bay field trip has been included in a new print and online book Thoreau’s Legacy: American Stories about Global Warming.

Read the entire article and view Kimball's photograph in the spring issue of Cal State East Bay magazine.
