Those wanting to believe the climate change hype may find it hard to do so, especially when the wealthiest proponents of the theoretical crisis continue to use their private jets and live in coastal estates.
Bill Gates, who encourages Western societies to warm up to synthetic beef, is now justifying his use of private jets and living in a large home. Gates told Fox News Host Chris Wallace that his work is how he makes up for his carbon footprint.
He cited his use of “clean aviation fuel” and his funding of electric-run “low cost housing projects” as expensive measures to live a greener life.
In other words, if Bill Gates — a philanthropist billionaire — still has room for improvement to live in a more environmentally friendly way, then what actual hope is there for the rest of us?
But he’s not the first or the last to receive environmental backlash. U.S. climate envoy John Kerry recently received smoke for flying his private jet to receive a climate advocacy award.
As reported by the National Review, the reporter who confronted Kerry’s actions was met with this comment:
“If you offset your carbon, it’s the only choice for somebody like me who is traveling the world to win this battle.”
Let’s see… if someone can afford to purchase an all-electric Tesla and park it next to his shipping container tiny house powered by solar panels while wearing only environmentally friendly clothing and eating vegan to save the animals and reduce cow “emissions,” then flying a plane is absolutely justified.
Let’s get real. The average family living paycheck to paycheck cannot afford to make these greener adjustments which are still at the center of debate. We know that electric still requires coal. And the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service had to establish guidelines to mitigate bird and other wildlife deaths attributed to wind energy. Not to mention Texas — the largest adopter of wind energy in the U.S. — was recently faced with a climate crisis of its own as a winter storm rendered wind turbines (and other energy sources like gas and coal) useless.
Not all that promising, is it? That said, if we only have nine years to avoid a “climate catastrophe” according to John Kerry, then we’re either screwed or somebody’s selling us oceanfront property in the desert.
If climate philanthropists expect Americans to accept their globalist ideals as gospel, then we’ll need to see them walk the walk and create a feasible path, leaving not a single carbon footprint behind.
