Bill McKibben: Sorry for bumming you out about climate change

On his recent visit to Seattle, author and environmentalist Bill McKibben apologized for his “life’s work of bumming people out” about climate change. He continued with that sobering work in this talk at Town Hall Seattle, but not without sharing his optimism about the successes and the future of the environmental movement.

McKibben has been a major force in shaping and inspiring the climate change protest movement. He is an author, journalist and the founder of the activist network 350.org. Jennie Cecil Moore recorded this talk at Town Hall Seattle on April 4.
