At the end of one of the hottest summers of recorded history, Bill McKibben, renowned environmentalist and author, warned an audience in Finney Chapel of the limitations of our current energy resources and the urgency of finding new solutions. Once called “the world’s best green journalist” by Timemagazine, McKibben delivered the keynote address for the After Fossil Fuels: The Next Economy three-day conference.
“Climate change is different than all other problems, a moving target, a question with a time limit,” he said. “If we do not solve it fast, then we will not solve it. We will reach a point when our ability to intervene will be gone.”
