Since When Was Creating Jobs & Building Community Elitism?

Elitism Is Defined By Actions, Not Demographics It's also important to note that I am not suggesting we can "all just get along". If we've learned anything since the heady days of An Inconvenient Truth's runaway success, it is that consensus over climate change and clean energy can easily be pedaled back by the true elites who have vast fortunes invested in business-as-usual and will defend those interests even when they conflict with the notion of the common good. And before anyone suggests that it is hypocrisy to decry the labeling of environmentalists as elites, and still point the finger of "otherness" at an entirely different group of citizens, I say bullshit. Because divisions exist and conflicts will continue—but we should judge the nature of those divisions based on people's actions not their demographics.
