Little wonder the globalists are constantly pushing a “Green New Deal,” the tenets of which they themselves oftentimes fail to adhere.
After all, how often do various loudmouth “activists” and self-proclaimed “environmentalists” fly on private jets?
While John Kerry and a slew of millennial/teenage loudmouths probably come to mind first these days when it comes to climate alarmism, it is worth revisiting the originator of the trend: None other than Al Gore, vice president during the Clinton administration.
In a recent expose, the Daily Mail revealed how ranting and raving about the environment, however inaccurate projections may be, has become quite lucrative for Gore.
“Warning the world that it is on the brink of disaster has been lucrative for Al Gore.
His wild prediction at Davos that Earth faces ‘rain bombs’ and ‘boiling oceans’ is just his latest in decades of climate alarmism … At the same time, the former VP has been at the forefront of green technology investment that has seen his wealth balloon to an estimated $330 million,” the publication observed.
Wow. Sounds like Pelosi’s wealth accrual during her time “serving” Americans.
In the wake of Bush’s victory in the 2000 election, Gore formed Generation Investment Management with former Goldman Sachs Managing Director and close personal friend David W. Blood.
The firm allegedly invests in companies “making strides” towards sustainability, whatever that means.
For his “services,” Gore is paid two million dollars monthly. Must be nice to make a $24M salary from being an “activist.”
And he is quite a vocal activist, delivering his typically alarmist remarks at a recent WEF Forum.
During WEF 2020, Gore used a range of hyperboles to rev up the climate melodrama.
“This is Thermopylae. This is Agincourt. This is Dunkirk. This is the Battle of the Bulge. This is 9/11. We have to rise to the occasion,” Gore boomed.
Right. “Rise to the occasion” in the way others, such as “Climate Envoy” types, have?
Remember, John Kerry, another highly vocal environmentalist, thought it would be a great idea to take a private jet to Iceland … to accept an environmental award.
Icelandic reporter Jóhann Bjarni Kolbeinsson was bemused, questioning, “I understand that you came here with a private jet. Is that an environmental way to travel?”
Kerry delivered a typically out of touch response.
“If you offset your carbon – it’s the only choice for somebody like me who is traveling the world to win this battle,” Kerry boomed.
Oh, wow. Great work, crusader. Keep it up. Talk about arrogance …
And speaking of arrogance, Kerry continued to rant.
“I’ve been involved with this fight for years. I negotiated with [Chinese] President Xi to bring President Xi to the table so we could get Paris. And, I believe, the time it takes me to get somewhere, I can’t sail across the ocean. I have to fly, meet with people, and get things done,” Kerry roared.
Uh, no one suggested sailing, Mr. Kerry. They did, however, suggest commercial flights as opposed to private jets, as private jets by far are vastly more polluting on a per capita basis than any other mode of transportation.
Kerry got the message at some point, as he was later photographed in First Class on a flight after the private jet debacle.
However, he also declined to wear a mask during the period of mask mandates. Typical.
However, Kerry’s arrogance comes nowhere close to the arrogance of billionaire globalist Bill Gates, who has a rather chummy relationship with China and rather creepy fixation on vaccines.
Of course, he’s an environmentalist who never misses an opportunity to fly on private jets.
“I am investing in climate change very broadly and substantial amounts of money. I don’t think there is anyone doing more, but if there is, congratulations to whoever that is,” Gates declared in remarks to Axios reporter Amy Harder.
So, Gates basically said there is no one “doing more” than him?
