Hiroyuki’s kindly given permission to reprint his essay, but I’m not sure why he calls it a ‘defense’. To me, it’s rather a deeper explanation of Morningstar, and the misrepresentation, often malicious) of Cory and her investigative work.
Now I’ve learned a lot from Cory and the Wrong Kind of Green collective over many years, even at her website, and have featured many of her exposés here and at caucuc99percent, especially several of her/their series on compromised NGOs and human rights organizations, as well as what she calls ‘the non-profit industrial complex’, including which foundations fund McKibben and Klein. It may be down to my current eye/brain configuration, but reading at her site now actually jangles my brain (and not in a pleasant way).

His unwavering aim of accelerating the transformation of energy systems is becoming reality because his wealth of knowledge, his logical analysis and his ability to inspire others enabled him to convince and win over many people.”
He says investment in oil and coal will be “stranded” investment within ten years.
“The argument is over” He is very persuasive.
very inspiring documentary, which I learned of, from “Informed Comment”
