Bill McKibben – The Climate Fight Gets Hotter | Bioneers

The award-winning environmental journalist, author, Co-Founder of, and leading global climate activist surveys the landscape of climate action, including the remarkable holding action by and others to suspend approval of the Keystone XL pipeline carrying Canadian “tar sands” oil, the “biggest carbon bomb” on the planet.

“Most of the people we work with around the world are poor and black and brown and Asian and young, because that’s what most of the world is made up of, and oddly, they’re as interested in the future as anybody else. They’re maybe more so because if you’re in some of these places, the future bears down on you with enormous speed.”

This speech was presented at the 2012 Bioneers Annual Conference.
