More hypocrisy from the Global Warming crowd – Carbon Campbell

Hyckleriet verkar aldrig ta slut från de personer som predikar Doom and Gloom och talar om för alla andra hur de DRASTISKT måste ändra sina liv för att stoppa Global warming. Plus att dessa personer gladeligen och ideligen beslutar om skatte- och avgifts höjningar plus hittar på NYA skatter och avgifter för vanligt folk.

Allt med motiverigen av att vi ALLA måste ”bekämpa” Global Warming.

Nu senaste så är det Gordon Campbell, premiärminister i British Columbia och ledare för det liberala partiet, som inte lever som han predikar för andra.

Han har dock gott sällskap av Al Gore, Obama m.fl. Se mina inlägg:  Al Gore’s Enormous Carbon Footprint!Al Gores energislösande hem och  Al Gores energislösande resande. Och även  Hycklaren Al Gore VÄGRAR att följa sina egna rådThe master hypocrite Al Gore doesn’t want to criticise his Hollywood buddies!Obamas Big Carbon Footprint

Som sagt, det är skillnad på folk och fä.

Och ingen i det PK styrda etablissemanget/massmedia bryr sig över detta monumentala hyckleri. Nä, vi (dvs. folket) skall hålla käften och betala samt känna skuld för något som vi inte kan påverka.

Se det var en skön samling herrar och damer.

Eller vad sägs om detta Eco friendly statement av en av Global Warming Hysterikernas Gurus Andrew Charalambous (Club4Climate, also known as Dr Earth, who claims to be a decendant of Roman emperors, Norman kings and the Doges of Venice):

all you have to do is dance to save the world”.

Nå Friends of the Earth blev lite sura på det hela:

”FoE, however, took offence at Club4Climate’s insinuation that people should fly to Ibiza to go clubbing in order to earn their green credentials.

Friends of the Earth’s Ruth Ruderham, head of supporter development, said: ”Telling people they can save the world by flying to an island to party is a green con. Club4Climate is misleading people by using our logo and our name.”

Varpå Club4Climate svarar: ”KATE MOSS and Jade Jagger’s green guru has branded Friends of the Earth (FoE) a ”dinosaur organisation” after the eco-group accused him of misleading the public by claiming that ”partying can save the planet”.

Visst är de värdiga representanter som TALAR om för OSS hur VI skall leva för att ”rädda” jorden från ”omedelbar undergång” (enligt Global Warming Hysterikerna).

Carbon Campbell should have flown coach

Premier’s trip to Beijing on private jet pure hypocrisy

Michael Smyth, The Province

Sunday, September 07, 2008

In 2006, NDP Leader Carole James made the unusual decision to accept a free trip to Taiwan from an Asian business group — something Premier Gordon Campbell immediately criticized as an inappropriate perk of office.

”It wouldn’t be my choice,” Campbell snapped, insisting his squeaky-clean Liberals stay away from that kind of corporate swag.

Now flash forward two years and what do enquiring minds discover? Campbell bagged a trip on a private jet to Beijing courtesy of real-estate developer and political backer Jack Poole.

Now it’s the NDP’s turn to tut-tut and wag their fingers.

”There were plenty of commercial flights available,” said NDP critic Shane Simpson.

Indeed, on my own economy-class trip to the Beijing Olympics, I bumped into Campbell‘s executive assistant on the flight. Guess the boss is too important to fly with the worker bees, even in executive class.

This is just the latest gaffe and miscue by Campbell. On the very day he was jet-setting it to Beijing, his government approved pay raises up to 43 per cent for his senior staff — a brazen booty haul he’s still fumbling to explain.

The guy shot himself in both feet in one day! The NDP is loving it.

Campbell’s private-jet junket to China is a dumb move by the premier for several reasons.

For one thing, Campbell has apparently forgotten — or ignored — his own lecture to James: It is inappropriate to take lucrative perks from corporate interests that have a stake in government decisions.

(Poole is chair of Concert Properties, which lobbies the government on transportation issues. Howe Street high-roller Peter Brown — who was also reportedly aboard the jet — is a generous Liberal financial backer.)

But here’s the bigger problem for Campbell: He’s a total hypocrite.

Private jets are one of the biggest polluters around when it comes to the carbon emissions that cause global warming — the planetary threat Campbell is supposedly so passionate about.

A seat on a commercial flight to Beijing emits about 2.2 tonnes of carbon dioxide, Simpson explained, while a private jet can spew close to 60 tonnes for the same trip.

Gordon Campbell’s carbon emissions from a return trip to Beijing on a private jet would be the same as driving a midsize car for almost seven and a half years.”

This from a man who’s whacking us with carbon taxes to force us to change our evil ways. (Oh, and by the way, because Campbell‘s private-jet junket was an international flight, it was exempt from his own carbon tax. More hypocrisy.)

If Campbell wants us to change our own behaviour to save the planet, he should lead by example. Instead, he jet-sets around the world with his corporate pals because he apparently believes there’s a different standard for the guy at the top.

It’s a classic case of ”do as I say, not as I do.”
