“I felt that by playing by the rules, I was guaranteed to not really make much progress.” -Tim DeChristopher

Solve Climate News recently produced a series called Seven Talks with Tim DeChristopher. In this exclusive series of interviews, DeChristopher — also known as Bidder 70 — talks about, among other topics, why crossing legal boundaries has become necessary for environmental activism and how the climate movement is at a crossroads.

Indicted on two federal felonies for disrupting an oil and gas leasing auction, he faces ten years in prison and fines of $750,000. The trial begins February 28, 2011. Check out the series and learn more about how you can support what has been deemed the “Climate Trial.”
