The sheer financial power of the fossil fuel industry is at the heart of the climate-change problem, and the climate movement is finally grappling with this reality. Bill McKibben shares stories from the front lines of this movement -- from every corner of the country and the planet. Some stories are hopeful, some are not, but he brings the news that we finally, certainly, have a movement up and rolling.
Bill McKibben, Schumann Distinguished Scholar at Middlebury College, is the author of a dozen books about the environment, beginning with The End of Nature in 1989, widely regarded as the first book on climate change for a general audience. He is a founder of the grassroots climate campaign 350.org, which has coordinated 15,000 rallies in 189 countries since 2009. In 2010 Time Magazine described him as "the world's best green journalist."
