Bill McKibben on C-SPAN’s BookTV

From Chris Jonsson:

Dear Readers,

This program is very powerful and is in a happily condensed format, well worth watching. Bill McKibben is so intelligent, knowledgeable, reasonable, understandable. Do yourself a favor and watch this 1 hour program and follow the ideas that are presented to us for the purpose of being kind to the earth.

It was recorded before the US Gulf oil spill, and is even more appropriate for our world now. Feedback from you to me is always welcome.

My best,

Chris
