Bill McKibben Keynote Address: Changing the Climate: What We’ve Learned in the Last 30 Years

Introduction by Kenny Ausubel, Bioneers CEO and founder.

What lessons can we draw from three decades of struggles to address the existential threat of climate disruption? What do our failures reveal about the flaws of our political system and the economic nihilism of the fossil fuel industry? What strategies are most likely to lead to greater success to save our species from itself? Bill McKibben is perhaps our nation’s most influential environmental activist as well as one of our most brilliant thinkers and authors. The co-founder of, the first planet-wide, grassroots climate change movement, Bill wrote The End of Nature (1989), the first general audience book that warned the country about climate change.
