Oil and Honey: The Education of an Unlikely Activist

Oil and Honey is McKibben's account of two necessary and mutually reinforcing sides of the global climate fight - from the center of the maelstrom and from the growing hive of small-scale local answers. With empathy and passion he makes the case for a renewed commitment on both levels, telling the story of raising one year’s honey crop and building a social movement that’s still cresting.

Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author and environmental activist Bill McKibben recounts the personal and global story of the fight to build and preserve a sustainable planet.

Bill McKibben is not a person you'd expect to find handcuffed and behind bars, but that's where he found himself in the summer of 2011 after leading the largest civil disobedience in 30 years, protesting the Keystone XL pipeline in front of the White House.

With the Arctic melting, the Midwest in drought, and Irene scouring the Atlantic, McKibben recognized that action was needed if solutions were to be found. Some of those would come at the local level, where McKibben joined forces with a Vermont beekeeper raising his hives as part of the growing trend toward local food. Other solutions would come from a much larger fight against the fossil-fuel industry as a whole.

Oil and Honey is McKibben's account of these two necessary and mutually reinforcing sides of the global climate fight - from the center of the maelstrom and from the growing hive of small-scale local answers. With empathy and passion he makes the case for a renewed commitment on both levels, telling the story of raising one year’s honey crop and building a social movement that’s still cresting.

Includes a bonus interview with the author.

    Story
    "Informative, historical and well written."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Oil and Honey to be better than the print version?

    Easy listening, but handy with a computer nearby for research.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Oil and Honey?

    Speaking about the rise of the 350 movement on a global scale (fighting for the environment, against the Keystone Pipeline in particular), and the plight of bees and his efforts on a local level (interspersed with personal notes on meetings with important figures or events, etc.) made for very interesting read. I unfairly presumed this would be a dry read/listen, but feel far better informed, and even entertained after having read this.
