Environmental Hypocrites

October 1st, 2006 by Kat Kingsley-Hughes

Green jetsetters– could there be such a thing?  The folks in this article in today’s Times are all environmental campaigners from the likes of Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace and WWF  and they’re racking up the miles on high-profile campaigns to convince the rest of us of the ecological evils of aviation.  And what miles they do too!

Bob Napier – chief executive of WWF (World Wildlife Fund) visited Spitsbergen, Borneo, Washington, Geneva, Beijing and the Falklands, generating at least 11 tons of carbon dioxide in the last 12 months.

Tony Juniper – Friends of the Earth director, visted: Malaysia, South Africa, Amsterdam, Slovakia and Nigeria in the past year generating at least eight tons of CO2.

Graham Wynne – chief executive of the RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds) visited Indonesia, Washington, Scotland and New Zealand totalling five tons of CO2

 It’s a case of do as I say, not as I do…
