Bill McKibben is the author of a dozen environmental books and was called “the planet’s best green journalist” by Time Magazine. He is also the founder of the grassroots campaign, an organization created to “solve the climate crisis.”

In the following video from The Daily Beast, a reader asks: “What’s the scariest environmental problem that isn’t being talked about much?” McKibben’s answer? The ocean.

    I have talked with Bill at several Blue Vision meetings over the years. Listen to him.

    How do we move people to care about the ocean? Pick an ocean species or an individual animal and follow it online, learn more about it.

    Then you will care enough to take care of its home, the ocean, hence my work with named humpback whales for the last 25 years.
