Bill McKibben: Climate Protest Movement, Not COP21, Key to Preventing “Uninhabitable World”

Bill McKibben, co-founder of 350.org, says the U.N. Climate Summit reveals the “scoreboard” for activists pushing governments to take action on global warming, and shows “how much more work we have to do.” He argues whatever agreement comes out of the meeting “won’t be enough” to avoid putting the world on a path to higher temperatures and an “uninhabitable world.” As France continues to ban protests at the summit, McKibben says he was moved to tears by the the outpouring of solidarity actions this weekend in 2,200 places around the world.
