Bill McKibben spoke with Tom Ashbrook June 14 in a special edition of On Point Live at the Paramount Center in Boston.

Two decades after proclaiming “the end of nature,” McKibben expressed a cautious optimism that we can still avert ecological catastrophe in a united effort against carbon-based fuels.

Martin Sexton’s passionate musical performance highlighted the communal interest  in protecting our planet and set the stage for the powerful ecological discussion. Together, Tom and Bill answered questions from the audience and discussed the political landscape that will dictate the future of climate change, fracking and fossil fuels.

Ultimately, Bill argued that activists must promote immediate change if we are to sustain a healthy planet for future generations.
