Bill McKibben Quotes

What we’re playing for is can we stop it short of the place where it cuts off civilization at the knees? that’s what the goal is now. It’s not inspiring in a way that saying ‘I have a dream’ is inspiring. It’s more like: ‘let’s see how tame we can keep this nightmare’. —Bill McKibben People have risen to crises before. It was our parents’ and grandparents’ generation who faced the crisis of fascism in Europe, we are in an existential emergency of the same kind, so staying away from work for a day and organizing is not too much to ask. —Bill McKibben We’re clearly in a climate moment now, and it’s clearly the last climate moment that’s going to come in a period of time when there’s still effective action to be taken. —Bill McKibben My worry — the thing that makes me scared sometimes — is that unlike all the other fights that humans have gotten themselves into, this one comes with a time limit, and if we don’t win soon, we will not win. —Bill McKibben What all these activists are working toward is less particular pieces of legislation, and more a shift in the Zeitgest — a shift in our sense of what’s normal, and natural and obvious. —Bill McKibben
