BILL MCKIBBEN is an American environmentalist.
ON CLIMATE CHANGE
‘[Bill] McKibben deserves credit for bringing climate change to the public’s attention three decades ago, and for building a climate movement that demands far-reaching action to address the problem. But…so long as the climate movement is limited to NIMBY fracking opponents, anti-nuclear greens, and renewables fabulists, it is unlikely to achieve either the broad social consensus that will be necessary to advance aggressive action, nor action that is particularly likely to achieve the levels of carbon reduction that will be necessary to significantly mitigate climate change.’1‘Bill McKibben’s misleading new chemistry.
