Bill McKibben: “The man who crushed the Keystone XL pipeline”

The Boston Globe has a nice article today on Bill McKibben. What’s really nice is that it’s in the Magazine section and is written for general interest, not specifically as an article about the environment. It may introduce the Tar Sands to a lot of people who would otherwise not know about it, and it shows activism in a positive light:

“He hasn’t quite broken through to the world of US Weekly and Teen Beat, but give him time. I wouldn’t be surprised if a few years from now my daughter has posters of Bill McKibben up on the wall.”

The article is a great introduction not just to the Tar Sands but to environmental activism in general; might be a good one to show to skeptical friends.
