Bill McKibben is widely known as a leading environmentalist. But he has also been a leading voice against using genetic technologies to enhance or alter human beings, as evidenced by his acclaimed book Enough: Staying Human in an Engineered Age.

In a recent appearance on HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher, McKibben talked about the radical implications of climate change and mentioned the troubling proposal made by some scientists and politicians to "alter [human] behavior and physiology" to deal with these changes.
