Bill McKibben on Climate Crisis: How we got here and what we can do now

Over forty years ago, the publication of ‘The End of Nature’ popularized a topic that was then largely unfamiliar to the general public. 
The book’s author, Bill McKibben, brought the subject of global warming to light and has advocated for climate solutions ever since. In this #EarthDay special on environmental protection, he talks about the oil industry's PR campaign, how renewable energies can not only help the planet but also curb power abuse, and why global warming is an urgent matter that can only be solved if all generations work together. 

To Whom Do I Pray in the Time of Need?

To whom do we pray in the time of need? A questioner wants to know how he can reconcile his idea of prayer – that he is praying to someone – with the non-dual understanding that there is no distinction between subject and object.
