Bill McKibben

Bestselling author and environmental activist Bill McKibben recounts the personal and global story of the fight to build and preserve a sustainable planet

Bill McKibben is not a person you’d expect to find handcuffed and behind bars, but that’s where he found himself in the summer of 2011 after leading the largest civil disobedience in thirty years, protesting the Keystone XL pipeline in front of the White House.

    Great look at activism for your average upper-middle class Joe. Love his philosophy that older and more established individuals ought to take up the responsibility of environmental activism instead of the youth and students who are still establishing themselves as adults. The story of Mckibben’s activism movement is paralleled by one of a beekeeper’s wisdom and work ethic in an ever changing environment. Enjoyable and quick read.
