Parliament Square in London during the Global Climate Strike on Friday, September 20.

Young people took to the streets around the globe today demanding action to address the climate crisis. And standing side-by-side with them was Bill McKibben.

McKibben has been working to sound the alarm on the issue of climate change for decades – as an activist and author.

His latest effort to explain both what we are up against – and what we can do about it – is in this week’s issue of Time. His essay, “2050: How Earth Survived,” is a dispatch from the future – a future in which governments around the world took all action within their power to avert the worst impacts of a warming planet.

So, what is Earth like in 2050? And how did we get there? McKibben joined Diane to explain.

Guests

  • Bill McKibben Founder, 350.org and author of "Falter: Has the Human Game Begun to Play Itself Out?"
