Bill McKibben on the State of the Climate Movement

 

Host Theresa Mitchell interviews environmental activist and author Bill McKibben about the state of the climate movement and what it takes to keep fossil fuels in the ground.

Bill McKibben’s 1989 groundbreaking book, The End of Nature, was the first of his 13 remarkable books about climate change. In 2007 he co-founded 350.org, which sparked the global action movement, and has since organized 20,000+ rallies/actions and launched the fast-growing fossil fuel divestment and keep it in the ground movements.
