Just in time for the UN climate summit in Glasgow starting at the end of October, my latest book ‘Abolish Oil Now!’ has been published. Some people won’t like what it has to say.
Out-of-control wildfires, heatwaves, and storms show that we all need to care about climate. We already have enough books about science. Here are some about people, conflict, and power.
McKibben has spent four decades as an author and activist to save the world from climate catastrophe. He represents the same key archetype as Garrison, the abolitionist who fought to end the greatest evil of his day, slavery.
After 30 years, the climate movement is too much about data and not enough about people. Celebrating our leaders can inspire Americans to join us.
There’s no moral comparison between humans who suffered in slavery and molecules of fossil fuels. But the abolition movement of the nineteenth century may hold the key to unblocking climate action today.
Bill McKibben writes that extreme weather is shrinking the world. This year, America has shrunk in Florida, California and beyond. It’s the climate equivalent of war.
