An Evening with Bill McKibben

At the start of Portland’s first heatwave this summer at the end of a traumatic week for our nation, longtime climate activist and journalist Bill McKibben came to Portland to speak at a gathering sponsored by the Third Act Oregon. In 2008 McKibben co-founded 350.org, which is now largely led by younger people. Two years ago he started Third Act, an organization of climate activists his age (and mine) to support the dynamic work of younger climate activists by providing the perspectives of age, organizing experience and sheer numbers.

On this episode of Locus Focus we hear an interview I recorded with Bill just before he spoke at the First Unitarian Church in downtown Portland. And then we’ll hear the speech he gave.
