Interview: Author and activist Bill McKibben on the “timed test” of the climate crisis

By Jessica McKenzie Photo: Steve Liptay

A half century ago, Jane Goodall was spending months at a time sitting in the Gombe forest in what is now Tanzania waiting for wild chimps to approach her so that she could observe their behavior. Her superhuman patience paid off. The young researcher discovered that chimps are more like us than we had imagined — lavishing affection on their young, forming social hierarchies, making tools and even warring with rival bands.

Here at Earther, I spend a lot of my time writing about the entities that are the most responsible for the climate crisis, like energy giants and other polluting companies.
