People on the left have little to no sense of irony when it comes to climate change. Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times is currently on a global tour on a private jet. Yet he is freaking out about climate change. Does he not get how ridiculous that looks?
The Daily Caller reports:
New York Times Columnist Warns Of Climate Change While On Company’s Global Private Jet Tour
New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof is warning, yet again, about the perils of climate change and the need to be good stewards of the environment.
This time, however, Kristof is not writing from the Manhattan offices of the “old grey lady” because he’s in the middle of a New York Times-sponsored around-the-world private jet tour that costs $135,000 per person.
Kristof’s column, entitled, “A Parable of Self-Destruction,” was written on Easter Island off the coast of South America. It tells the story of how the island became uninhabited due to deforestation and unsustainable practices by the natives.
“That brings us to climate change, to the chemical processes we are now triggering whose outcomes we cant fully predict,” Kristof wrote after recounting what is alleged to have happened to the natives. “The consequences may be a transformed planet with rising waters and hotter weather, dying coral reefs and more acidic oceans. We fear for the ocean food chain and worry about feedback loops that will irreversibly accelerate this process, yet still we act like Easter Islanders hacking down their trees.”
If he’s really so concerned, maybe he should end his trip. Or try traveling by bicycle.
