GUEST: Bill McKibben, internationally renowned climate activist, published author, and founder of 350.org, winner of the Right Livlihood award and other multiple awards. His latest book, published earlier this year is called Falter: Has the Human Game Begun to Play Itself Out?
BACKGROUND: The devastation of Hurricane Dorian has offered yet more dire evidence of the critical choice humanity faces: to continue burning fossil fuels and heating up our atmosphere, or to choose a path away from climate destruction.
On September 20th, a global climate strike of the likes we may have never before seen, will mobilize people around the world to demand action on climate change. A week-long series of actions, events, marches, rallies, strikes, and more are intended to send a powerful message to decision makers that we can no longer continue with the status quo.
