The collection of lectures and publications from the Schumacher Center for a New Economics represents some of the foremost voices on a new economics.

Beginning in 2007 we saw a dramatic and rapid melting of ice across the Arctic resulting from a one-degree increase in the Earth's temperature. Bill McKibben saw this as an imperative reason to take action and knew that it meant more than talking and writing about climate change. In this lecture he describes the building of a climate- change movement that began with a local demonstration in his home state of Vermont and grew to a global movement that has changed the way we think about carbon. The organization McKibben founded is called, which refers to the maximum number of parts per million of CO2  tolerable in the atmosphere if the world is to remain habitable.
