Climate Change: Have We Turned a Corner?
Climate change is the greatest challenge we’ve faced as a civilization – and the biggest change to the natural world during the course of human history. It’s useful to know what we’ve already locked in – and how we can keep it from getting more traumatic than it must. With Bill McKibben.
Bill McKibben is a contributing writer to The New Yorker, a founder of the grassroots climate campaign 350.org and the Schumann Distinguished Professor in Residence at Middlebury College in Vermont.
He was a 2014 recipient of the Right Livelihood Prize, sometimes called the ‘alternative Nobel,’ and the Gandhi Peace Award. He has written over a dozen books about the environment, including his first, The End of Nature, published 30 years ago, and his most recent, Falter: Has the Human Game Begun to Play Itself Out?
