Greenpeace executives commute by jet to work

The Telegraph reports:

One of ’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.

Comments and questions

Greenpeace has been, almost from the start, the paragon of utter hypocrisy. Any sensible leftwinger should avoid these pseudo environmentalists like the plague.

Its just a business now that lost its core ethos

Do what I say, not what I do

How about an article with a table showing small % of donations that get to causes recipients - not paying fat cats in euro cars (sponsored by XYZ car dealer which is only 5% off RRP)

He must be important & his time so precious

Apparently doesnt really believe in global warming con

It has been proven (sorry, no references here) that a volcanic eruption does more carbon damage than any other man made contraption or device. So, do we tax the countries with the volcanoes?

Even if you take the highest estimate of volcanic carbon dioxide emissions per year, human-emitted carbon dioxide levels are more than 130 times higher. (Morner and Etiope (2002))

Tsk tsk, those damn greenies making up climate change. God made coal and oil for us to burn
