An alternative Nobel is sent to Ripton

Ripton resident Bill McKibben took home a Right Livelihood Award, often called an "alternative Nobel Prize".
Over the last ten years he initiated and built the first planet-wide, grassroots climate change movement. With the organisation at its core, this movement has spread awareness and mobilised political support for urgent action to mitigate the climate crisis that is already unfolding.
Congratulations to our friend and neighbor!
