When it comes to fracked fossil fuels, are we being sold a bunch of snake oil?

And journalist Bill McKibben helped spark the global mass movement to save the climate. McKibben tells the story of how that movement has developed – and a parallel story of his neighbor in rural Vermont who just happens to be a foremost beekeeper.
