Not as irrelevant as a snarling critic like you. After all, his organization IS worldwide and it IS motivating lots of climate activism. You soldiers want it both ways–when people DO protest you ignore it and call those who organized them irrelevant; and when they don’t, you fall back into your uber-authoritarian blame citizens/voters/sheeple meme ad nauseum.
The only thing relevant is what are YOU doing that is so glorious as to grant you the right to toss the first stone at Mr. McKibben?
Note how Ando Arike entirely leaves out the Republicans who are the most obvious supporter of corporatism, or any mention of how today’s parties have been forced into servitude to Big Money interests:
“Isn’t it time to connect all the dots between corporate/crony capitalism and the Democratic Party and the spiraling crisis in the biosphere?”
Then his People Magazine style bias, leads to a chorus of blame-Obama commentators. I am NOT saying Obama is faultless; however, making the matter about this particular President’s flaws is a very strategic way of taking the discussion away from the Deep State and its more entrenched players. I believe that tactic is deliberate.
Mhunter follows up with:
“Obama has been a complete wolf in sheep’s clothing.”
Again, making the matter of the full corporate takeover of most of this nation’s government, courts, media etc. into the poor policy dictates of this particular president.
Here’s #3 in the chorus, chiming in with a variation on the same Talking Point cum theme:
“Obama has been a total phony as an environmentalist…”
Either the group consists of clones, or they can’t think independently, or they are PAID to push certain memes. My bet is on all 3.
