Bill McKibben was on Colbert Monday. I admittedly have only read one McKibben book, but it was among my favorite assigned reading in college. (The book was Deep Economy, wherein McKibben rethinks utilitarianism in a profoundly humanistic way and addresses the challenge of facing globalization through fostering local society.) Let’s all watch the clip, then read a book.
