Jet Setting Green Leader Demands “Alternative to Aviation”

JET SET

No messing about from the leader of the Scottish Green Party, Patrick Harvie, in this thundering op-ed warning: “we need an alternative to aviation“.

Harvie says long haul flights mean “hundreds of millions of tonnes of additional greenhouse gas emissions” are being pumped into the atmosphere.

Apparently putting strict restrictions on flying wouldn’t affect normal people because “70 per cent of flights are taken by the wealthiest 15 per cent”.

Harvie might soon be experiencing some turbulence from his colleagues when they find out he recently crossed the Atlantic on a climate change “leadership program” junket:

“The costs of meals, travel and accommodation within the US, and occasional expenses, were met by the US Department of State Cultural Affairs Division to a total of $8,100”

Gaia asked Harvie if he made the trip by plane or boat, but alas a reply was not forthcoming. Plane stupid.

Quote of the Day

Logging company Resolute’s CEO Richard Garneau suing Greenpeace

“A funny thing happened when Greenpeace and allies were forced to account for their claims in court. They started changing their tune. Their condemnations of our forestry practices “do not hew to strict literalism or scientific precision,” as they concede in their latest legal filings. Their accusations against Resolute were instead “hyperbole,” “heated rhetoric,” and “non-verifiable statements of subjective opinion” that should not be taken “literally” or expose them to any legal liability. These are sober admissions after years of irresponsible attacks.”
