Well, yes George:
There is also a real story to be told about the co-option and capture of some environmental groups by the industries they should hold to account. A remarkable number of large conservation organisations take money from fossil fuel companies. This is a disgrace. But rather than pinning the blame where it lies, Planet of the Humans concentrates its attacks on Bill McKibben, the co-founder of 350.org, who takes no money from any of his campaigning work.
The allegation is that organisations take money. That an individual does not take money from one of those organisations is not a refutation of the point now, is it?
A slightly different question though. Does McKibbin take fees for the articles he writes? Given the number of them that would be an interesting income right there…..
And George, really, you’ve revealed yourself here:
the structural, systemic causes of our predicament: inequality, oligarchic power, capitalism.
None of which are the causes of our environmental problems and at least one of which is going to be the cure for them.
