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.
Which character – as performed by Kevin T. Collins – was your favorite?

Where does Oil and Honey rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
What did you like best about this story?
McKibben debunks climate change deniers with hard data that is easily understood. The overabundance of fossil fuels, specifically known oil and gas reserves. The data does not consider supplies from fracking, tar sands, shale and coal. We can burn up our planet many times over and turn our atmosphere into one like Venus that will not sustain our life forms.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When deniers say to me that these events have occurred before and the planet has survived, I have some factoids: specifically, this number of extreme weather events has not occurred during the last 120,000 years. The number of extreme events is compounding each year as global temperatures rise.
Any additional comments?
This book is a good tandem for The Sixth Extinction.
