Vermonter Bill McKibben has been writing and warning about the effects of a changing climate for decades. And more recently the Middlebury College Distinguished Scholar has been working to stop the Keystone XL Pipeline that would bring oil from the Canadian tar sands to refineries in the Gulf of Mexico.
McKibben has written opinion pieces, but isn’t just letting his pen do the talking – he was arrested last month at a Washington, D.C., protest over the pipeline plan.
McKibben speaks with VPR’s Mitch Wertlieb.
