McKibben's message - redemption through change and awakening

Editor, Index-Tribune:

A big thank you for the front-page reporting on Bill McKibben’s visit to Burlingame Hall, and the review and rendition of his critical messages for us and all of humanity.

This strikingly-coherent, socially-active and well-gathered vision leaves us no room at all to stay fixed to our seats and stolen comforts. While our government screams “terrorist” at us, and at the world at large, the sad truth is, in large measure it is we who terrorize the planet with our habits and greed for the power and commerce made possible with fossil fuels.

Yet even as that is obviously true, the McKibben message offers hope and redemption by change and awakening.

What a far cry this now is from when
