Climate activists want people to make lots of sacrifices to fight global warming – giving up fossil fuels, giving up cars and choosing public transportation, giving up beef, etc. The things that people should sacrifice in order to meet the climate activists’ expectations are limitless. It is only the hardworking people of America who are being asked to give things up, while the high-profile climate activists continue to enjoy their lives of luxury.
Climate activists propose that we cut back on the number of miles we drive, that is, we should drive less to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and address climate change. In fact, some argue that we should give up cars and choose public transport such as buses and subways. Yet, many famous celebrities drive luxury vehicles with expensive engines that consume a lot of gas.
Some also propose that we reduce travel by airplane to fight global warming. On the other hand, John Kerry’s family jet reportedly emitted approximately 30 times more carbon in 2021, compared to the average passenger vehicle. John Kerry is the Special Presidential Envoy for Climate.
Climate activists have rallied against the consumption of meats, including beef. Giving up the consumption of meats, as I wrote in a previous blog post, would destroy the religious freedom of Americans.
And now, some are saying that one way to fight climate change would be by giving up air conditioning. Yet, numerous celebrities live in large, luxurious homes in places like California and New York that consume a lot of energy, compared to the homes of average Americans.
There are many other high-profile individuals, such as Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who tell people what they need to do to fight climate change but do not follow their own advice.
In the entire discussion of climate change, it seems that the expectation is that hard-working Americans would make sacrifices and drastic lifestyle changes (in terms of travel, transportation, diet, and comfort of their homes), while celebrities and politicians will continue to live their lives of extravagance by consuming fossil fuels and enjoying their luxury homes, cars and planes.
What else will climate activists ask people to give up?
It is time for Americans to stop listening to the climate change hypocrites.
