The Telegraph reports:
One of Greenpeace’s most senior executives commutes 250 miles to work by plane, despite the environmental group’s campaign to curb air travel, it has emerged.
Once again, it is do as we say, not do as we do.
Pascal Husting, Greenpeace International’s international programme director, said he began “commuting between Luxembourg and Amsterdam” when he took the job in 2012 and currently made the round trip about twice a month.
The flights, at 250 euros for a round trip, are funded by Greenpeace, despite its campaign to curb “the growth in aviation”, which it says “is ruining our chances of stopping dangerous climate change”.
One Greenpeace volunteer on Monday described Mr Husting’s travel arrangements as “almost unbelievable”.
Why doesn’t he take the train? Only 6 hours, and you can work on the train.
