Bill McKibben’s form of denial is more damaging than than that of the climate deniers. It is becoming more and more obvious to anyone with a pair of eyes that the climate deniers are wrong. It is much more difficult and requires much more education and knowledge to know that McKibben is wrong, and his message makes everyone think they do not need to dramatically change their lifestyles.
A friend summarized the article:
“McKibben recycles his usual blather about divestment and renewables without a hint of over-consumption and overpopulation. Sigh. The only thing that rings true is the finality of the headline – and he probably didn’t choose it.”
