See Bill McKibben Live!

It’s simple maths: we can emit 565 more gigatons of carbon dioxide and stay below 2°C of warming — anything more than that risks catastrophe for life on earth. The only problem? Burning the fossil fuel that corporations now have in their reserves would result in emitting 2,795 gigatons of carbon dioxide – five times the safe amount. And they’re planning to burn it all — unless we do the maths to change our future.

In November 2012, Bill McKibben and 350.org hit the road in the USA to build a movement strong enough to change the maths of the climate crisis. The Do the Math Tour was a massive US sell-out success.

So 11-13 June we’re bringing Bill McKibben to New Zealand!

The Fossil Fuel Resistance

By Bill McKibben

It got so hot in Australia in January that the weather service had to add two new colors to its charts. A few weeks later, at the other end of the planet, new data from the Cryosat satellites showed 80% of Arctic sea ice has disappeared. We’re not breaking records any more; we’re breaking the planet. In fifty years no one will care about the fiscal cliff or the new Pope; they’ll just ask: “So the Arctic melted, and then what did you do?”

And here’s the good news. We’ll be able to say at least we fought.

After decades of scant organized response to climate change, a truly powerful movement is quickly emerging, around the country and around the world. It has no great charismatic leader, and no central organization; it battles on a thousand fronts, many of them very local and small. But taken together, it’s now big enough to matter, and it’s growing fast.

So you could call it by many names. But for me it’s the Fossil Fuel Resistance.
