Weepy Bill McKibben makes the "big ask"--asking people to stand up to pledge their support for the carbon dioxide cult

DoTheMath Calls for Climate Justice to be the Next Anti-Apartheid Movement | The Nation
McKibben eventually made his “big ask”, asking all students and alumnus in the room to stand up who were willing to march on their college campuses or occupy Dean’s offices demanding that their administrations divest from fossil fuels drawing attention to their institutions complacency in climate change. The majority of the audience stood up during the event to pledge their commitment to the task at hand. Finally, McKibben asked who from New York was willing to march on the Exxon building around the corner from Hammerstein Ballroom in coming months--and the entire room pushed back their chairs and stood up.

He should then have asked how many of them would be willing to give up all fossil fuel use, including every product they own that incorporates petroleum products (plastics) or consumes fossil fueled electricity... starting right then for the rest of their lives. These people are some of the biggest hypocrites and poseurs on the planet. These people are village idiots. Require them to follow their own advice if just to show us how well it works. Some attorney draw up a contract for them to sign, renouncing all use of petroleum products. That'll teach us. :)
