On Wednesday, San Francisco's Retirement Board will vote on whether or not to divest the city's pension fund from the fossil fuel industry. If the vote passes, approximately $450 million in stock will be pulled from major oil and gas companies. We’ll discuss the trend in fossil fuel divestment with environmental activist and author Bill McKibben.

Guests:

Bill McKibben, founder of 350.org, an international climate campaign; author, "Radio Free Vermont," "Eaarth" and "The End of Nature"
