Description
Author and climate change activist Bill McKibben discusses his first book "The End of Nature." During this episode of Focus, McKibben talks about causes of the greenhouse effect on the climate, and that in order for our planet to be sustain life we need a massive fundamental and philosophical shift in the way we view our relationship to the Earth. Since 1989, McKibben has published other books, including his most recent "Eaarth," in which he discusses the impacts of climate change that we have begun to and will continue to experience; now, he argues, we need to learn how to adapt and live on a new planet. Bill McKibben is founder of 350.org, an international movement and organization to mobilize people across the globe to act on climate change.
