Bill McKibben Talks Climate Change with Bill Maher (Video)

David Roberts posted this video of Bill McKibben's spot on Bill Maher's HBO show, and it is indeed one of the best climate segments I've seen on TV for quite some time.

McKibben is eloquent and lucid as ever — though you can tell he's a bit ill at ease in a room full of knee-slapping pundits — and the segment never lags over its 12-minute running time. It's a good chance to catch up on the most recent developments on the climate front, and their current relation to political and pop culture.

Roberts also uses the clip as a jumping-off point to ponder the best climate debate techniques; the whole post is worth a read.
