Silly people, don�t you know that the rules that apply to the rest of us don�t apply to celebrity politicians. They feel it is their inherent right to be as hypocritical as convenient.

No surprise. In 2016 alone, the great climate savers Lenny DiCraphole, George Cloney and some other Hollywood shitwit flying around all over the place burned the equivalent in fuel of 100 commuters driving to and from work for 300 years, based on the average commute distance.

And here’s the same old BS argument. Apparently you can only advocate for saving the environment if you live in a Yurt and shit in the woods with the bears.

So calling these undeniable hypocrites is BS... it's not an argument but a fact. They are much more carboniferous than most people which on a more positive thought helps make my carrots grow bigger.

It’s an obfuscation of an argument. We can’t listen to these people because they use the same polluting technology as the rest of us. So what?

Again, what does the fact the activists fly in planes and drive cars have to do with anything?

If they couldn't use these things, they couldn't be influential activists. That's why it matters.

Shouldn't that statement say? "We can’t listen to these people because they use excessive amounts of the same polluting technology as the rest of us"

It's not about the use of but, the amount of, that's up for debate here.

Well, if you want everyone else to drive shitty little electric cars and then live in a yurt and shit in the woods with the bears then you'd best lead by example.

The ONLY one of the enviro-agitators I can think of who is in no way a hypocrite is Ed Begley, Jr.

To his credit he lives the way he promotes as the way to live. He even rode his bike to the Oscar awards one year.

You gotta respect that kind of commitment. [B-o]

He’s the Prime Minister which means when he flys on vacations the Government flys with him and it’s going to cost more in dollars and carbon emissions. It’s not like he can fly on Air Canada or WestJet, it’s just the way it is.
