"I'll Believe Global Warming is a Crisis When the People Telling Me It's a Crisis Start Acting Like It's a Crisis"

The title belongs Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit fame. There are so many instances of rank hypocrisy in the field of global warming that I don't post about it all that often compared to the number of instances that come up in the media.

So, when People wrote about rapper Drake buying a private plane -- and exponentially raising his carbon footprint -- it normally would not have made it to the blog. But, this is no ordinary private jet. It is a Boeing 767 jumbo jet which, if owned by an airline, can hold 350+ people! It will be custom-designed and decked out for a single flier: Drake.
He calls it Air Drake. The article says he can use it to visit his son in Europe. Which he could also do with a first class ticket on a commercial airliner. As you would expect, People does not point out his hypocrisy. With this new plane, his carbon footprint is raised of other extreme climate hypocrites like Al Gore's or the owners of Google with their 767 personal jets (yes, jets plural).
And, it won't only be People ignoring the hypocrisy. Remember, global warming is not about science. It is about political power.
