It Must Be Rough...

...to fly in a private jet all around the world to five-star resorts to 'fight' global warming.

For the rest of us:
Sierra Club argues that “flying will have to get more expensive” through new taxes on fuel, new charges at airports, and a generalized restriction on supply. The anti-travelers often frame their arguments in terms of “environmental justice,” arguing that air travel is a luxury. If their preferences continue to shape global public policy, it will remain that way, precluding air travel entirely for the 80 percent of human beings who have yet to fly. Few might object to policy shaving off the marginal jaunt from a business executive’s itinerary, but what if that same policy keeps a middle-class American family from visiting grandma, or defers travel for a young Indonesian who wants to see the wider world?

So, as global warming zealots like Kerry, Al Gore, Leo DiCaprio, etc., etc., crisscross the world in their private jets, you and I must not fly to "help the planet." 

As Glenn Reynolds puts it, I'll believe global warming is a crisis when the people telling me it's a crisis start acting like it's a crisis.
