Global elites love to wag their fingers at the commonfolk.
And they often do not practice what they preach.
Now Mark Zuckerberg got exposed as a giant hypocrite after one infuriating report.
The Left claim to be worried about climate change, but their actions say otherwise.
That particularly goes for the elites who globetrot on private jets while warning about the dangers of fossil fuels.
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg fits into that category.
He is among many liberal public figures who have called for climate action while traveling in gas-guzzling private jets.
Fox News reported that “Zuckerberg’s jet, a Gulfstream G650, has burned at least $158,448 worth of jet fuel across 28 different trips between Aug. 20 and Oct. 15, according to data from flight tracking software ADS-B Exchange compiled by programmer Jack Sweeney. The jet has crisscrossed across the continental United States, traveling to Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New York, Texas and several other states often before returning to its apparent base in San Jose, California. In that time span, Zuckerberg’s private jet emitted more than 253 metric tons of carbon, a greenhouse gas that experts say is contributing to global warming and climate change. By comparison, the average American has a total carbon footprint of 16 tons a year while the average person worldwide burns about 4 tons a year, according to The Nature Conservancy.”
It’s no surprise that the people screeching about environmental harm are causing a big portion of it.
But this is indicative of the mindset of left-wing elites.
They exempt themselves from the ramifications of their own ideology.
For example, they champion public schools, but would never allow their own children to attend them.
They support illegal immigration and pro-crime policies, but they live in gated communities with private security.
Zuckerberg has donated money to climate initiatives and spoken about the importance of reducing carbon emissions.
He’d previously said, “It’s time for our generation-defining public works . . . How about stopping climate change before we destroy the planet and getting millions of people involved manufacturing and installing solar panels? […] We get that our greatest challenges need global responses too — no country can fight climate change alone or prevent pandemics…Progress now requires coming together not just as cities or nations, but also as a global community.”
Zuckerberg and other elites believe in other people fighting climate change by changing their lifestyles – just not them.
