In 2008, as George W. Bush tried to gift the energy and mining industries thousands of acres of pristine Utah wilderness via a widely disputed federal auction, college student Tim DeChristopher monkey-wrenched the process. Bidding $1.7 million, he won 22,000 acres with no intention to drill. For this astonishing (and successful) act of civil disobedience he was sentenced to two years in federal prison. Bidder 70 tells the story of this peaceful warrior whose willingness to sacrifice has ignited the climate justice movement.
