McKibben also promoted an Occupy Wall Street type climate event for Monday. (See: Climate march will feature ‘a 300-foot-long banner that reads ‘Capitalism = Climate Chaos – Flood Wall Street’) (Also see: Flashback 2013: Bill McKibben is not what he seems to be)
Also featured on the panel with McKibben was author Naomi Klein, author of the new book “This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate”. See: Warmist Naomi Klein: ‘Capitalism is irreconcilable with a livable climate’ – Facing climate change head-on means changing capitalism

During the panel discussion, Klein was asked: “Even if climate change issue did not exist, you would be calling for same structural changes. Klein responded: ‘Yeah.’
Following the panel, Climate Depot asked Klein if she would support all the same climate “solutions” even if the science was wrong.
“Yes, I would still be for social justice even if there was not climate change. Yes, you caught me Marc,” Klein answered sarcastically as she abruptly ended the interview. [Also see: EU Commissioner: Global Warming Policy Is Right Even If Science Is Wrong ]
Klein told the activists she recommended “weaving this [climate] movement into all of our movements.”
Klein also singled out Climate Depot’s Marc Morano during her panel presentation, noting that “climate deniers and Heartland Institute people like Marc Morano, who is here tonight…”
Klein noted that the “ecological clock is ticking.”
“We are dealing with an existential terror,” she added.
Climate Depot’s Morano note: [I was reported to security for just being at the event. At this McKibben panel discussion, I was told “You cannot ask questions.” My reply was, “I have lots of questions.” Attendees recognized me and delivered long monologues on what a scurrilous human I was for “denying” global warming. Organizers of the People’s Climate March were warned days ago that I would be attending the march and the activists were warned not to speak with me.

Receives Threatening Email & Organizers warned Morano attending march, advised ‘not to engage’ - Climate Depot is also filming for the new climate documentary 'Climate Hustle']
When Hillary Clinton’s name was mentioned during the event, loud boos erupted throughout the room.
Author Chris Hedges was also on the panel. In an interview with Climate Depot, Hedges seemed to acknowledge the futility of governments trying to impact the climate.
Climate Depot asked him what impact he expects UN treaties or EPA regulations to have on the climate and whether he things they are worth implementing.
“It’s the difference between resisting for a slim chance of life and sort of passively accepting your own death. Why take it lying down? Lots of people have been in a situation where they realize their probably doomed. The climate science isn’t good,” Hedges explained.
