McKibben and the Climate Reality Project


Bill McKibben's organization, 350.org, is trying to make a global difference in solving the climate change crisis

UPDATE: Bill McKibben spoke to a full house at UNCA, filling Lipinsky Auditorium to near capacity with over 600 people who frequently applauded his impressive and, at times, shocking talk of the dire straits ahead for America and the world, "from Pakistan drowning in floods to Texas burning in wild fires." McKibben said that a massive people's movement to demand that corporations and governments reduce carbon output was urgently needed. He said that we have only begun to feel the effects of climate change. He said a people's movement in the USA and abroad to directly confront the energy corporations that refuse to face the reality that their carbon output is unsustainable. He said the passage of a U.S. Constitutional amendment stating corporations are not people would be necessary to loosen the stranglehold that corporations have on Congress and the people. More>
