Elites, whose lifestyles lead them to burn lots of carbon, rail about the Paris accords to those who get by burning lots less.
What is galling is to see how little the elites’ green rhetoric is backed up by their green behavior. Could Hollywood celebrities at least for a year swear off the use of their private jets that emit more carbon emissions in a year than entire small towns in Ohio? Why do not college professors who are strident activists for climate change agree to limit their intercontinental jet trips to one a year? Could our pundits and politicians who warn Middle America to brace for radical changes in their lifestyles at least agree to live in houses smaller than 2,500 square feet?
Sure, that will happen about the time Bernie Sanders converts two of his home into refugee centers. Have you seen Climate Alarmist Thomas Friedman’s house? How about (any of several of) Al Gore’s? How about Leonardo di Caprio’s?
Let’s face it, they don’t act like they believe in climate change. So, let’s just assume that most of them are virtue-signaling and a few… Al Gore, Elon Musk, and company … are angling to profit off the scam.
