I was very proud of Joe and Alan and WAMC for organizing it and proud of the WAMC audience for coming out in droves to hear him. The message he brings is not a happy one but it is a message we have to hear and understand; more, it’s a message we have to act on.</p><p> Tue, 08 Jan 2013 17:35:44 +0000 55455 at http://wamc.org Hurricane Sandy - Bill McKibben http://wamc.org/post/hurricane-sandy-bill-mckibben <p>We speak with Climate Change expert, Bill McKibben.</p> Mon, 29 Oct 2012 15:45:00 +0000 Joe Donahue & Alan Chartock 50826 at http://wamc.org Stephen Gottlieb: This is an emergency http://wamc.org/post/stephen-gottlieb-emergency <p></p><p>During the fund drive I heard Joe Donahue and this station working hard to bring Bill McKibben to this audience and lead us away from the catastrophe of global warming.
