"There's no way to get around the fact that yesterday was a disaster," renowned environmentalist Bill McKibben says of President Trump's decision to pull the U.S. out of the Paris climate agreement. "It's the thing that Trump will be remembered for for hundreds of years, assuming we're around for hundreds of years to remember...it's on the short list of the dumbest things America has ever done."

McKibben is an author, environmentalist, and activist. The Vermonter spoke with WAMC's Pat Bradley on Friday. In 1988, he wrote The End of Nature, the first book for a common audience about global warming. He is the co-founder and Chairman of the Board at 350.org.
