Bill McKibben is an author, journalist, and co-founder of the climate campaign group 350.org.
One of the reasons we’re in this precarious position is “the fossil fuel industry’s mounting campaign of disinformation.” McKibben says that we need to stand up to the industry.
“Nobody can reform the coral reefs, refreeze the Arctic,” he says. However, if we can make the earth a cleaner place, “it would also be a cleaner place politically.” McKibben states that dependence on fossil fuels has far-reaching political implications. “That’s why the Koch brothers and Saudi Arabia are so powerful.”
He says we need to start the shift to cleaner energy solutions. And there is no time to waste.
Our job is to do it fast!
