Bill McKibben on Democracy Now!: Obama's Nonbinding Climate Deal, IPCC Report, People's Climate March

Bill McKibben appeared this morning on Democracy Now! discussing the leaked report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), Obama's proposed nonbinding climate treaty and his hopes for the mass Sept. 21 People's Climate March in New York City.

"The new UN report is more of the same. In a sense, it’s the scientific community, through the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, telling us what they’ve been telling us now for two decades, that global warming is out of control and the biggest threat that human beings have ever faced," says McKibben.

Watch below as McKibben shares with Amy Goodman and Juan González why his hopes for taking on global warming lie not in President Obama’s approach, but rather in building a big global movement, which is why he says, "September 21 in New York is such an important day."
