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 joins 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.

Bill McKibben is the author of more than a dozen books, including The End of Nature, Eaarth, and Deep Economy.
He is the founder of the environmental organization 350.org and was among the first to warn of the dangers of climate change.
He is the Schumann Distinguished Scholar at Middlebury College and the 2013 winner of the Gandhi Prize.
