The environmental and climate justice movement isn’t just about saving polar bears from melting ice, argues writer and founder Bill McKibben. It’s about rebuilding connection and community, changing the way human beings live, and working in solidarity with human rights organizations across the world to improve all of our lives. And the biggest stumbling block to the growth of a global climate justice movement? It’s right under our noses: our own Congress.

Bill McKibben is a recipient of this year’s Puffin/Nation Prize for Creative Citizenship, and he joins us in studio for a special one-on-one chat with Laura about the state of the climate justice movement, the Cancun talks, Obama’s failure to act, and what we can do to change things before it’s too late.
