Hollyweird hypocrite Emma Thompson flies 5,400+ miles to protest climate change

Leonardo DiCaprio would be proud.

From The Sun: Emma Thompson was accused of hypocrisy last night after jetting 5,400-miles to take part in London’s eco-protest. The Oscar-winning actress flew back to London from LA to support the eco-warriors plotting to take down Heathrow today.

It is estimated that a single 5,456-mile transatlantic flight between Los Angeles and London Heathrow would run up a three tonne carbon footprint.

Thompson posted a video on social media to pledge her support to the group. She donned denim dungarees and a green sticker of the Extinction Rebellion symbol in front of an inflatable plastic elephant.

The Bafta-award winning actress explained that she would have joined the protest earlier but she had been busy celebrating her 60th birthday. She added: “I am so proud and thrilled to be part of Extinction Rebellion, a new movement that has come up behind all the old ones that I’ve been part of since I was 16 years old.

“A movement that’s telling it like it is and saying to government ‘look, there’s no more time. You can’t lie and you can’t stall any longer’.”

Many protesters involved in the march have demanded that the Government limit how many times individuals can fly each year.

A spokesperson for Dame Emma told the MailOnline: “She had to fly home at any rate, it was just earlier than she thought she could have. At the moment, that is our only available and practical means of trans-global travel.”

Ringleader of the movement Robin Boardman-Pattison declared during a television interview this week that flying “should only be used in emergencies” despite appearing to travel extensively.

An Extinction Rebellion spokesman said: “If Emma Thompson wants to come and help out, that’s great, she’s using her platform which is incredibly valuable to anyone. If she has to fly around the world like a climate lawyer might have to fly around the world, it seems counter-productive in the short term but we are looking at the bigger picture.”

It’s too depressing to contemplate what it would be like to be someone who actually gives a flying f**k at the moon what Emma Thompson thinks. Reducing “carbon footprints” is for the little people, these hypocritical slimeballs do what they want when they want. But they’re all over your case because you didn’t flick off your lights for Earth Hour and walruses are committing suicide. It’s all your fault

This was hilarious when the Globull Warming Wall St Carbon Taxing lunatic liberal Watermelons held a “Global Warming” conference and it got hit with a massive snowstorm!

The irony huh? Almost as bad as the Wall St Carbon Tax cultist Watermelons holding a Globull Warming conference in an evil “Fossil Fuel” producing country of Qatar. (Petroleum is actually a plate lubricant that is naturally produced)

After looking at the skyline of Doha I have to conclude that it’s a strange place to host anything. Ugly. As I’ve commented before re: the Sand People, aesthetics is not their strong suit. That “skyscraper” on the right looks like a Buck Rogers rocket ship. Anyway, “climate-killing energy”. So the alarmistas shouldn’t have a problem if all “fossil fuel”-derived energy is banned starting in, say, NYC. That should work. What could go wrong?

These people are shameless.
To boil the word down to its Greek origins, a hypocrite is an actor, a poser; not real, not authentic.

“She had to fly home at any rate, it was just earlier than she thought she could have. At the moment, that is our only available and practical means of trans-global travel.” Actually there are boats you can take across the ocean Emma. But then I wouldn’t want you to be inconvenienced. Or you could have actually ditched all of your other plans for several months before the protest and traveled by the least environmentally expensive way. Walk to the Atlantic ocean from the west coast and sail to England. There. No carbon emissions. But then, like I said I… Read more »

Just a reminder, tomorrow 4/22 is Earth Day which just happens to coincide with the birthday of Vladimir I. Lenin who was born April 22, 1870. Every one of these climate change hysterics should move to North Korea where they could stumble around in the dark. Every day is Earth Day there

This was further emphasized by Guardian “environmental” reporter George Monbiot who stated recently (speaking truth to power of course) that to prevent “climate collapse” “we’ve got to go straight to the heart of capitalism and overthrow it”. He was honest about their objective at least although presented under a “green” disguise

Emma Thompson is a person who basically said in an interview that masculinity is problematic. She conflates masculinity with being ‘extreme’ and misogynistic, this with regard to the Harvey Weinstein situation. How she confuses a true pig and their piggish and predatorial behavior with natural normal masculinity is beyond me. But then again it appears we’ve entered the realm of the alternative universe — where now we have to label and assign and call things the latest non binary description. Another example of criticizing masculinity is in a most private of spaces;the PUBLIC RESTROOM. Apparently the state of Oregon is… Read more »
