Bill McKibben: Tim DeChristopher "Should be Getting a Medal, Not a Sentence" (Video)

As you're likely aware, Tim DeChristopher was found guilty on two felony counts yesterday -- meaning the renowned environmental hero now faces up to 10 years in prison and $750,000 in fines. Bill McKibben, perhaps the nation's preeminent climate activist, and a friend of DeChristopher's, immediately decried the ruling on Twitter. McKibben also happened to be at the Garrison Institute, speaking at a climate conference I've been attending for the last few days. After his talk, I spoke with McKibben about what DeChristopher's conviction means in the context of the climate movement. More on Tim DeChristopher
