Author Bill McKibben, cofounder of 350.org, a global grassroots climate activist movement, kicked off the Do The Math tour with an event before a packed house of 2000+ at Seattleapos;s Benaroya Hall on Wednesday, 11/7/12. Before taking the stage, he gave this exclusive interview to The UpTakeapos;s Leif Utne. The 21-day, 21-city tour will highlight the magnitude of the threat fossil fuels pose to a livable planet, the opportunity Tuesdayapos;s election results pose, and a bold new strategy to hit the fossil fuel industries where it hurts -- including boycotts, blockades, marches on oil companiesapos; shareholder meetings, and a new Fossil Free Campus divestiture movement modeled after the anti-Apartheid movement of the 1980s. McKibben will be joined at stops along the tour by celebrities and activists including author Naomi Klein and Gasland director Josh Fox. Next stops on the tour: Portland, SF, LA.
