Threshold Conversations: Bill McKibben
The word crisis comes from the Greek krisis; one of its meanings is “the turning point in a disease.” Today on Threshold Conversations, we sit down with Bill McKibben to talk about the dual crises of climate change and the coronavirus pandemic, what we’re learning in the 2020s, and what he sees as the task of the moment: to try. Are we at a turning point? And if so, which way are we headed?
Bill McKibben is an author, activist, and founder of 350.org.
