160602 Bill McKibben - Breaking Away from Fossil Fuels

For decades we have been hooked on fossil fuels. Time is long past for humankind to kick this habit. The Paris climate accord, signed with much hoopla by 175 countries, is, given the magnitude of the crisis, totally inadequate. A coalition of environmental groups calls it ďa dangerous distraction that threatens all of us. The Agreement relies on voluntary versus mandatory emission cuts that do not meet targets scientists say are necessary to avoid climate catastrophe.Ē On an individual level you might say, Hey, Iím doing my part. I drive a hybrid and bike whenever I can. It ainít enough. We are being lulled into complacency. Radical action is required to reverse global warming. Can we break away from our destructive addiction that is endangering life as we know it?

Bill McKibben was one of the first to sound the alarm on climate change with his bestselling book The End of Nature. A scholar-in-residence at Middlebury College, he is a leading environmental activist. His other books include The Age of Missing Information, Hope, Human and Wild, Deep Economy, and Eaarth. He is co-founder of 350.org.
