Bill McKibben Speech

Referred to us by our Benicia tentacle.

“They believe if they can amend the tax laws they can ammend the laws of nature too.” (McKibben)

“The radicals are the people who are fundamentally altering the composition of the atmosphere.  That is the most radical thing people have ever done.”  (McKibben)

The United States Chamber of Commerce sent a legal brief to the Environmental Protection Agency last year saying that they should take no action on climate change because if the planet warms, humans can alter their behavior and their physiology to deal with the problem.

“The only thing that a morally alert person can do when the worst thing that can happen is happening is try to change the odds (against us).” McKibben
