Bill McKibben and a Break

Hi there, Peace of Persistence listeners! This week, we have a very special treat for you, but first - a quick announcement. We need to take a brief pause to search for more guests, and I need your help. Close your eyes for a moment. Take a deep breath and then exhale. Now, take a minute to imagine your favorite people in life. Who do you know, who seems to have a light around them at all times? They're happy, satisfied with life, and know how to succeed at what they want to accomplish. (pause) Do you have someone in mind? (pause) If not, give it some time, see if someone comes to mind. (pause) If you do now - great!! Open your eyes, pull up our website at, and pause this episode to nominate your friend for our show. If you'd rather introduce us to them, just send them over to, and they can find out more about us and nominate themselves. That's Thanks!

Ok, thank you for doing that! As I mentioned, we need to take a brief pause to search for more guests, and we'll return later in February (Because we're taking a break, this one's on us, Patreon subscribers). In the meantime, for today, enjoy this rebroadcast of a previous episode of The Peace of Persistence with Author, Educator, Environmentalist, and Co-founder of, Bill McKibben. Just this January in 2018, we've had a 30% tariff added to imported solar panels in the US, terrible mudslides in California, and bigger, faster avalanches throughout the world - climate change is a real concern, and Bill gives us some great perspectives about it and strategies to address it in this interview. So without further ado, I bring you Bill McKibben.
