Climate Enlightenment Summit

The mission of 2020 or Bust is to empower humanity to end the climate crisis. We are mobilizing 500 million people in the next 16 months to get us on track to ending the crisis in time. 

In this event, we will wake people from the trance that the power to end the crisis lies with the government or the UN or science. The real crisis is a crisis of consciousness, not carbon, politics or temperature. People will leave empowered, with a real plan and strategy, note best efforts and hope.

Falter: Conversation with Bill McKibben

Bill McKibben’s groundbreaking 1989 classic, The End of Nature, first brought the idea of global warming to public consciousness. But now the stakes are even higher as climate change shrinks the spaces where civilization can exist, and technologies such as artificial intelligence and robotics threaten the nature of human experience.

McKibben has responded with Falter: Has the Human Game Begun to Play Itself Out?, a powerful and sobering look at these converging trends, the ideological passions that prevent us from controlling them, and some possible ways out of the trap.
