Years of Living Hypocritically: Five Alarmist Celebs and Their Double Standards
News Busters ^ | 4-22-14 | Sean Long

Posted on 04/23/2014 11:32:16 AM PDT by afraidfortherepublic

They may be good at making movies, but Hollywood celebrities’ lifestyles are far from an environmentalist’s dream. Their globetrotting, multiple mansion owning ways are inconsistent with the environmental agenda they loudly promote.

Showtime’s new climate change series, “Years of Living Dangerously,” premiered April 13, 2014, slightly more than a week before Earth Day 2014. It relies on several wealthy, Hollywood celebrities to spread fear about climate change. While these actors and directors talk a lot about reducing carbon footprints and saving the world, they haven’t given up their own enormous mansions and private jets.

Director James Cameron, former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, and actors Harrison Ford, Matt Damon and Ian Somerhalder who are worth a collective $1.2 billion, according to Celebrity Net Worth, were just some of the Hollywood types involved in Showtime’s nine-part series.

The Lear Jet Leftists expect to form the core of the global Green Inner Party. They will continue to enjoy the finest foods and most advanced gadgets the world has to offer — while deciding your fate for you.

If you work very hard and show them your unwavering loyalty you may be permitted to join the global Green Outer Party. You will be allowed occasional servings of meat - and air conditioning on a rationed basis.

The rest of us will eat insects and swelter – ‘for the good of the planet’.

The motto of all liberals is “With my guilt and your gelt we can do anything!” These lowlifes never suffer the consequences of their inane positions, actions or pronouncements.

I doubt that Ian or Matt have their own jets, however, they do fly back and forth from NYC to LA and other parts of the World that is for sure.

In other words, the basic plot of Chrictons’ “State of Fear”.

Bollocks!

In the 1980’s, there was a book about the coming Ice Age.

Since then, there has been NO information to support warming of anything, other than last night’s meal in the pan for lunch today.

Global warming/Climate change (when hasn’t it?), is nothing more than a globalist’s dream of controlling the masses, separating them from their hard-earned money, and living in fear of retribution, “for crimes against the Earth”.

Even the indigenous peoples had no so such criminalization, and they reverenced the Earth.

The liberal elite thinks it’s above the laws that it wants obeyed by the normal people.

Add to this the revelations that board members of the Sierra Club drive gas guzzling SUVs and Jaguars, the head of the EPA spewing tons of CO2 in her plane rides to global warming events and Obama’s flagrant global warming sins like flying in Air Force One and this has not been a very good earth day.

This is a big reason more and more people aren’t buying into The Scare. They see these celebs saying the end of the world is just around the corner and then (one of them) will hop in their plane and fly up the coast to get a burger. It’s obvious they don’t believe what they are peddling or they would change their own behavior. It’s the same with govt. officials who will gather at a luxury resort for a week to talk about global warming and then instead of taking a bus to meetings they demand their private, carbon spewing limos and private jets.

Ford owns many jets and helicopters and uses them often. Nothing like a 74 year old pretending he`s Han Solo above your head. MOST interesting re. The Bundy Atrocity_Ford owns a huge ranch near the Grand Tetons. Wonder how he`d feel if the Feds took his land?? I loathe hypocrites.

Al Gore was so angry that his attempt to count ballots was stymied that he decided to take revenge by cooking up the global warming scare.

He decided that if American wasn't going to give him the Presidency he'd make 100's of millions screwing the middle class in the meantime.

This is one reason I NEVER believed in this scam. Al Gore at the head of it? Please!

Crony capitalists to provide the funding.
Entitlement army to provide the votes.

It’s the Democrat way.

In the 60's Stanford's Paul Elrich claimed millions would die from starvation by the 1980s.

Being 100% dead wrong in the past doesn't stop the left from making policies based upon their own crazy claims today.

We should all pitch in and take out an ad in the NYT, exposing the “warmists’” hypocrisy and current lifestyles. The duplicitous lives of the global warming alarmists! Don’t forget Babs...we should all be using clotheslines and not electric dryers, etc She has one in her own backyard, too, right? LOL!

Its a billion$ industry. As long as there are companies that sale ‘green’ products and researchers that need funding, global warming will stay real and stay scary. It is their livelihood. It is their cash cow.

And hipsters reach into their pockets and pay because it makes them feeeel good.

The ‘green’ markets know that a hipster will pay 50% more for a product simply because it says ‘green’ on it.
