Some cool animation complements Bill McKibben's thoughts on environmental policy and the fossil fuel industry (not so cool), invigorating and illustrating his stance. McKibben lays out the challenges facing every environmentalist -- the fossil fuel industry has the money and the politicians. So we must find new currency with which to fight -- passion, spirit, creativity and civil disobedience. It is a lucid call to action and a frank assessment of the difficulties facing our planet and anyone dissatisfied with the towering, totalizing fossil fuel energy infrastructure of our planet.
