Dispatch from Bill McKibben
At COP27 in Egypt
Ed. note: “Activists are the Engine” is a stirring piece by Bill McKibben, which he posted on Nov. 12th, from the 27th U.N. Climate Change Conference. COP27 is being held from 6 November until 18 November 2022 in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. McKibben posted the piece, to honor the many climate activists in attendance at the conference, and to share photos of them as they marched in the parade on Nov. 12, 2022. Please note, McKibben also recognized by name other climate activists (like Greta) who were not able to attend the conference.
