11/28 Bill McKibben: The Oil Industry is the Enemy

November 28, 2012

Bill McKibben explained the Do the Math tour, the new evolution of climate activism, the fossil fuel divestment movement, the good news from Germany, why global climate talks are irrelevant until we break the power of the fossil fuel industry and what’s coming next.

On The Better Half: a heart warming story, Glenn Beck ever more disgusting and desperate, a Idaho state politician peddles an insane plan for Romney to become President in January and Sam does not like Andrew Cuomo.

And keep the conversation going on the morning thread!
