Bill McKibben, environmental writer and founder of 350.org, just released this statement in support of the Kentucky Rising Governor's Office Sit-In:
"I've been hearing from people across America today who are electrified by what's going on in Frankfort. It's about time that people said: 'No more business as usual, if that means leveling the mountains of southern Appalachia.' And it comes as no surprise that Wendell Berry is in the forefront, as he has been for an entire generation. When the rest of the nation sees the person we most associate with Kentucky taking a stand like this, we pay attention."
