Bill McKibben and 350.org are causing climate change. No really

I know, I know, it borders on silly to give one person credit for so much. It seemed acceptable with Steve Jobs and Apple, or Elon Musk and Tesla, but to infer that one man and his organization is causing climate change? Yes, it is, and for reasons documented years ago in an environmental newspaper. […]

Skyrocketing SUV sales, new coal fired power plants, and mass public climate disinterest – where next for climate activism?
