Bill McKibben on Cornell’s work;
“Instead of dire warnings or policy prescriptions, it offers the gift of a more direct connection to the natural world. That connection, once made, is one of the things that can power the ‘movement’ we need!"
~Bill McKibben, Founder of 350.org,
Author of a dozen books including;
The End of Nature (1989), Deep Economy (2007)
