Bill McKibben & Bay Area Millennials: Reclaiming our Climate Future

350MARIN.org_climate_event_Oct21-1.jpgThis from Kelly on our Steering Committee:

We had a packed house for the Bill McKibben/Millennial "Reclaiming Our Climate Future" event last night. Every seat was filled plus a few standing - about 350 people (appropriately). Raised thousands of dollars for 350 Marin and 350 Bay Area at the event and the fund-raiser beforehand. The millennials, Sophia Baratashvili, Cesar Fragoso, Owen Bartoff, and Rose Strauss, were inspiring: smart and articulate. I'd never heard Bill in person before. Why the house was packed soon became apparent. A low-key guy, but an historic figure.

Phrases that stuck in my mind, as I recall them: "I’ve been enjoying being one of the curmudgeons from Vermont this year…We're out of time...It's the hottest year in history...You've been working hard. You have to work harder...I don’t know if we're going to succeed...The planet's out of its comfort zone, so we have to move out of our comfort zone...When we fight, we win...Wanting to keep the planet we grew up with is conservative and normal. It's waking up and going to work everyday to run fossil fuel companies that you've known for decades have been destroying that planet that's radical."

Great to spend an evening with people that sense the urgency and scale of the crisis, want to learn more about it and join the fight!
