On Monday night, author, activist, and Co-Founder and Director of the climate crisis action group 350.org, Bill McKibben was on The Colbert Report. I can’t embed the video exactly (WordPress doesn’t allow it), but you can watch the interview here or by clicking on the picture.
Now, having read many of his books and seen him speak on multiple occasions (I even got to introduce him once), I can say that McKibben is an excellent communicator who has a good sense of humor. But it’s not easy being on a fake political pundit show. And while he had his talking points ready and did an admirable job of not deviating from them, it seemed to me that he wasn’t too well prepared for the comedy format. But maybe I’m expecting too much. Or maybe this was the right way to go. I’m wondering what you think.
