Callous disregard for people’s plight

We attended a lecture by Bill McKibben at the Rutland Free Library hoping to hear real solutions in the green energy sector and ways to reduce our carbon footprint. Not only did we come away disappointed, but infuriated.

We sat instead in an overheated room viewing his slide show of places all over the world that he had jetted off to. The carbon emissions from the trips alone far exceeded many Vermonters’ carbon footprint.

McKibben expressed sympathy for caribou affected by the Hydro-Quebec dam and people on the other side of the world, but had a cold, callous response to the Therriens, a family here in Vermont, living off the grid, but suffering from wind-turbine syndrome. It was only when pressured again did he say that maybe someone needs to find them another place to live.
