Black Eyed Peas rapper Will.i.am is the typical Hollywood-esque global warming alarmist. He's also the typical hypocrite who touts the apocalyptic effects of climate change, and then rides around in his helicopter -- or, technically, his "hip.hop.copter."
Mr. Will.i.am attended a climate change conference at Oxford University before lifting off to carry the Olympic torch on the same day.
On May 21, the American musician, who is also a coach on the British version of the singing competition television show The Voice, tweeted pictures of his helicopter as he was leaving Oxford and headed to Taunton, where he would help carry a leg of the Olympic torch.Energy Live News reported that during his stay in Oxford Will-i-am met with climate analyst Miles Allen and purportedly said:
Climate change is confusing. It should be the thing that we all should be worried and concerned about as humans on this planet, how we affect the planet, our consumption and how we treat the place that we live in Who is causing the confusion and why isnt it a priority?We should be worried about "our consumption?" The "we" part must not include him, or his gaz-guzzling hip.hop.copter.
According to Gigawize, it is estimated the helicopter guzzled about 71.5 gallons of gasoline on its trip from London to Oxford, which would have emitted three-quarters of a ton of carbon dioxide.Evidently, spending 60 minutes in a car would have been too time-consuming.
Google Maps shows a car ride from London to Oxford University is about a 56 miles, which would take a little over an hour to drive. Directions from Oxford to Taunton is about 124 miles and would take around 2 hours and 24 minutes in a car.
“According to Gigawize, it is estimated the helicopter guzzled about 71.5 gallons of gasoline” umm MOST modern helicopters burn Jet Fuel(kinda like Kerosene or Diesel).
Will.i.am also drove high powered automobiles on TOP GEAR, just for fun.
Like all ‘stars’, he goes with the flow. Whatever it takes to stay in the limelight.
I will not consume any black eyed peas product.
I’m waiting for them to bring in Professor Cameron Diaz then the real fun quotes will begin. “It’s totally not the lightbulb of the sun causing global warming but all the cars that are polluting the air with oxygen and stuff.”
This guy is the worst of all of them. He's a jackass!
