Bill McKibben: ‘Pace is the most important variable right now in fighting climate change’

November 9, 2020

Climate change is a complex, interconnected and existential crisis. How we talk about it — the stories we tell, the facts we share, and the language we use — can make the difference between action and paralysis, hope and despair. In this conversation, Bill McKibben, author, activist and storyteller who has helped shape the climate movement, will illuminate the importance of getting the climate story right, and the danger of confusing effective narratives with effective action. 

This session was held at GreenBiz Group’s VERGE 20, October 26-30, 2020. Learn more about the event here:
