Bill McKibben @ Town Hall – Apr 4
Keeping Fossil Fuel Underground Where It Belongs: Breaking Free from Exxon and All the Rest
This May marks a worldwide mobilization called Break Free; one of the five US actions will be right here in Washington State. Bill McKibben will offer an update from the global front lines about the fights that will determine just how overheated the earth will get; he’ll also touch on the “sheer, profound, and….unparalleled evil” of Exxon’s almost forty-year coverup of the catastrophic risks of burning of fossil fuels, and how decades of behavior like this have left us with no choice but to join the fossil fuel resistance, insisting that our leaders start shutting down dangerous fossil fuel projects and supporting the necessary–most ambitious–climate solutions.
