"Do as we say, not as we do!" That's the message of the climate change hypocrites who can't seem to practise what they preach:
7. Sir Richard Branson
In 2006, Branson, pledged to spend $3 billion over the next decade to develop biofuels. Almost ten years later it appears he’s come well short of that goal. However, he has found other things to invest in: his airlines have increased daily flight traffic. He’s unveiled Virgin Racing -- which briefly competed in Formula One -- as well as Virgin Galactic, his dream project of launching gas-guzzling commercial flights into space for $250,000 per passenger. First up? Leonardo DiCaprio! (See #4.)
6. Bill Nye “The Science Guy”
He was heavily chastised on Earth Day as he tweeted that he was heading down to DC to catch a flight on Air Force One with the President to act on climate. Nye, was evidently unaware how bragging about flying thousands of miles to board another plane to fly thousands more miles with the President could appear just a tad hypocritical. Maybe the two of them should have taken a long bike ride instead.
5. The Davos Elites
1,700 private jets were reportedly used to fly the world’s elites out to the conference in Switzerland. The same conference that also made ‘climate change’ a big topic at this year’s meeting. Not only that, the global jet setters also thought they’d tackle "global inequality" as they stood on their hypocritical soapbox.
4. Hollywood Celebrities
Leonardo DiCaprio has vaulted to the top of the green celebrity hypocrites. Speaking last year at a UN climate summit, Leo reminded the world that he was "not an expert" in this field, but he still called climate change "humankind’s greatest challenge." He has since shown everyone just how "not an expert" he actually is by partying on super yachts, flying around the world on private jets, acquiring multiple carbon-intensive mega mansions, and has even made plans to travel to space on Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic. One trip aboard the Galactic has five times the carbon footprint of one commercial flight from Singapore to London.
3. Everyone behind the CFL Light Bulb
This so-called "green-energy" solution is toxic, reportedly causes cancer, and is polluting the earth when it hits the landfills. If the government wants to ban a light bulb, this one should be at the top of the list.
2. David Suzuki
There’s none bigger north of the border! His tirades and dictatorship style of ruling peoples’ lives on climate matters rings a little hollow: Suzuki has multi-million dollar homes (where he left all the lights on during Earth Hour). His hypocritical lifestyle has left the biggest carbon footprint of us all.
1. Al Gore
Aside from the jet setting, the multi-million-dollar homes, and the Co2 consuming lifestyle, the biggest piece of evidence against Gore is when he sold his Current TV for $500 million to Al Jazeera. You know, the news service funded by the oil and gas rich Arab nation of Qatar, called by some "the propaganda outfit for the Muslim world." Gore actually pocketed close to $100 million in the transaction with his so-called “enemies”.
