Bill McKibben: Finding Hope Amid The Existential Threat Of Climate Change


In 2014, Bill McKibben received the Right Livelihood Prize, often referred to as the ‘alternative Nobel.’ His book The End of Nature, written thirty years ago, is considered the first mainstream book about climate change. McKibben is the founder of, a climate change movement that has organized climate rallies in nearly every nation in the world, and was instrumental in launching the fossil fuel divestment movement.

In McKibben's new book Falter, he addresses the sheer magnitude of the losses we face due to climate change. He argues that our climate crisis threatens what he calls the human game: culture, politics, religion, and social life, the sum total of what we have created as a species.

It's a sobering read, but as the recent interview with Common Dreams reveals, McKibben is not without hope. In fact, as he argues, hope is a crucial factor in addressing these pressing problems. Check out the fascinating interview here.
