Bill McKibben in Brattleboro: now is the time to act about climate change

Riptonite Bill McKibben exhorted a Brattleboro crowd to seize the environmental moment, especially in this time of economic crisis:
there remains a very narrow window for a gradual transformation to a new global economy. "This is the future we can have," said McKibben. "Now's the moment, and we are the people who will either do it or not do it."...

While the banking industry has weakened the American consumer, McKibben said the energy corporations are the ongoing failures that are the largest risk to the planet.

Bill shared the stage with Senator Sanders, pictured below, who spoke on related themes.
