The Texas Observer Interviews Bill McKibben


Texas Observer reporter Forrest Wilder meets with author, educator and activist Bill McKibben to discuss politics and the environment.

From the interview:
FW: Our local leadership here...is locked in the mindset that, at best climate change is just a natural phenomenom, nothing they can do about it and at worst active denial - referred to as a hoax.
B McK: I don't think it's locked in a mindset, I think it's bought and paid for.
