We will discuss the politics of climate change, how we can confront and stop the fossil fuel industry, the role of civil disobedience, and climate justice. We’ll also ask Bill about how to stay motivated and active when climate action is stalled, and how we as individuals and local organizations can be most effective in advancing climate solutions at the local and national level given our dysfunctional political system.
The event will include Q&A from the audience.
Bill McKibben is an author, journalist and movement strategist. In 2014 was awarded the Right Livelihood Prize, sometimes called the ‘alternative Nobel.’ His 1989 book The End of Nature is regarded as the first book for a general audience about climate change, and has appeared in 24 languages; he’s gone on to write a dozen more books. He is a co-founder of 350.org (which SanDiego350 is affiliated with) – the first planet-wide, grassroots climate change movement, which has organized twenty thousand rallies around the world in every country save North Korea, spearheaded the resistance to the Keystone Pipeline, and launched the fossil fuel divestment movement.
