Pretty much seems to cover the attitude of the arrogant, self-righteous boobs in the political and entertainment industries. Not all of them, of course:
Matt Bellamy, front man of the rock band Muse, has dubbed it 'private jets for climate change'.
A Daily Mail investigation has revealed that far from saving the planet, the extravaganza will generate a huge fuel bill, acres of garbage, thousands of tonnes of carbon emissions, and a mileage total equal to the movement of an army.
The most conservative assessment of the flights being taken by its superstars is that they are flying an extraordinary 222,623.63 miles between them to get to the various concerts - nearly nine times the circumference of the world. The true environmental cost, as they transport their technicians, dancers and support staff, is likely to be far higher.
The total carbon footprint of the event, taking into account the artists' and spectators' travel to the concert, and the energy consumption on the day, is likely to be at least 31,500 tonnes of carbon emissions, according to John Buckley of Carbonfootprint.com, who specialises in such calculations.
But they will take care of such niggling little matters by
John Rego, the environmental director of Live Earth, says he expects to purchase at least 3,000 tonnes of carbon credits to off-set the event. It is believed the organisers will spend in excess of £1million on carbon offsetting to counter criticism.
Rego explains: "All the events are carbon neutral. We have chosen a reforestation and reagricultural project in Mozambique. It is a credible certifiable carbon-diffused project. We are in the process of purchasing a carbon offset."
"See! We are doing a PC and Socially-Approved Thing, so shut up about us using private planes and big cars and motorcycles, you bloody peasants! Do what you're told! And don't eat meat, either!"
Just as a side point, ignoring the diet deficiencies vegans and 'no animal product' vegetarians tend to suffer, have these clowns ever checked the numbers on how much land would have to be put under the plow to feed everyone if they could force us to go vegan? I know the bastards want to kill off most of the human race, but since they can't pull that off I'd think they'd be willing to trade people eating meat for a bleepload of square miles of forest and prarie and
If I had time, I think I'd take both the muzzloaders to the range and proceed to create clouds of
After all, it's the thought that counts.
