McKibben Where Climate and Faith Meet

On the stump with former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, or writing the lead piece in the New York Times’ Opinion section, Bill McKibben talks tough: “the planet can’t stand this presidency” and the GOP, as he told the Washington Post recently, “is a wholly owned subsidiary of the fossil fuel industry.”
 
 
But even fans of McKibben may not know that the founder of the 350.org environmental nonprofit is also a religious man — a churchgoing former Sunday school teacher who has written passionately and extensively about the spiritual underpinnings of his drive to save the planet.
 
Religion News Service spoke to McKibben as he rode a train to D.C. for the march. This interview has been edited for length and clarity.
