Leftist hysteria over so-called “climate change” is spiraling out of control.
It’s made worse by celebrities who use their platform to whip the population into a frenzy.
But this new study proves celebrities are total hypocrites on the issue of climate change.
Leftists are masters of “do as I say, not as I do,” particularly in the area of climate change.
They themselves can’t be inconvenienced, but they want everyone else to sacrifice to “fix” what they call “man-made climate change.”
This cognitive dissonance can easily be found among celebrities who are self-proclaimed climate change warriors.
And a new study found celebrities cause more air pollution than the average person.
After weeks of being lectured and chastised by celebrities and activists about how everything you do is bad for the planet, these very same eco-warriors are going about churning out far more pollutants than you do.
According to a new study from Stefan Gossling of Lund University, celebrities emit 10,000 more CO2 than the average person, thanks in part to their jet-setting lifestyle, a bit of which is flying to and from places to preach at you about the oncoming climate crisis:
“The global average is 115kg CO₂ per person per year. Yet the vast majority of humanity never fly. This average is created by the staggering emissions of the richest proportion of humanity. I calculated that Bill Gates, for example, causes at least 1,600 tonnes of CO₂ to be emitted into the atmosphere – and this is from flying alone.”
Bill Gates is not alone in his flight habits.
Other climate change activists like Al Gore, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Bono all fly private jets that cause serious pollution.
So the people who are leaving a modest carbon footprint will suffer from the government policies the radical Left wants to ram down our throats while the rich fly around on private planes.
In fact, a recent climate change summit in Italy featuring Barack Obama and other global elites saw 114 private jets descend on the locale.
This Leftist hypocrisy is both disgusting and predictable.
Both Obama and Gore recently bought multi-million-dollar beachfront homes, yet they tell us sea levels are about to reach cataclysmic heights.
Also, Gore’s other home, his posh 10,000-square-foot estate in Nashville, Tennessee used an average of 19,241 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per month in 2016, which dwarfs the U.S. household average of 901 kWh.
That means Gore uses more electricity in one year than the average American family does in 21.
These are the sanctimonious people who are lecturing the rest of us.
Are climate change warriors hypocrites?
