Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Relocalization may be the most important strategy for minimizing climate change. According to Bill McKibben, working as communities is the most important thing that we can be doing right now. In this wide-ranging conversation about the sustainability of our civilization, McKibben shares his thinking about much more than climate change, including the fact that having more is not necessarily the key to our happiness.

Bill McKibben has played a major role in public awareness and discussion about climate change. His 1989 book, The End of Nature, was likely the first book for a general audience about climate change. He s one of the founders of the planet-wide, grassroots climate change movement,, he spearheaded resistance to the Keystone Pipeline, and launched the fossil fuel divestment movement.

Local food, small farms, suburban isolation, more leisure and less stuff, community connections, and greater satisfaction all come up for discussion. Dave Gardner sat down with McKibben in 2007, shortly after publication of his book, Deep Economy: The Wealth of Communities and the Durable Future, the year before he co-founded, for this macro-level look at climate change, human behavior and happiness, and public policy.
