Guest: Bill McKibben, Author, Educator,
Environmentalist and Founder of 350.org
On tonight's show we interview Bill McKibben, focusing on the connections between climate crisis, Wall Street, and finance capitalism writ large. Bill focuses in particular on the systemic issues of market-based solutions, and the importance of direct action and civil disobedience in effectively addressing environmental destruction. He closes with a preview of 350.org's fall campaign, targeting the financing of large energy campaigns, and a call for environmental activists to join Occupy Wall Street in the streets on September 17th.
