New York Times Columnist Warns Of Climate Change While On Companys Global Private Jet Tour

http://dailycaller.com/2018/03/19/new-york-times-climate-change-private-jet-tour/

"New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof is warning, yet again, about the perils of climate change and the need to be good stewards of the environment.

This time, however, Kristof is not writing from the Manhattan offices of the “old grey lady” because he’s in the middle of a New York Times-sponsored around-the-world private jet tour that costs $135,000 per person.

Kristof’s column, entitled, “A Parable of Self-Destruction,” was written on Easter Island off the coast of South America. It tells the story of how the island became uninhabited due to deforestation and unsustainable practices by the natives.

“That brings us to climate change, to the chemical processes we are now triggering whose outcomes we cant fully predict,” Kristof wrote after recounting what is alleged to have happened to the natives. “The consequences may be a transformed planet with rising waters and hotter weather, dying coral reefs and more acidic oceans. We fear for the ocean food chain and worry about feedback loops that will irreversibly accelerate this process, yet still we act like Easter Islanders hacking down their trees.”

Kristof was on the island as part of an around-the-world tour organized by the New York Times. Limited to only 50 people at a cost of $135,000 per person, “based on double occupancy,” the tour offers the chance to “circle the globe on an inspiring and informative journey by private jet, created by The New York Times in collaboration with luxury travel pioneers Abercrombie & Kent. This 26-day itinerary takes you beneath the surface of some of the world’s most compelling destinations, illuminating them through the expertise of veteran Times journalists.”

Balance of article at the link. Is Kristof trying to outdo Al Gore as biggest environment hypocrite?

1. Liberal CO2 output doesn't count.

Only conservative carbon output is detrimental to the planet.

Liberal elites can travel endlessly on private jets and yachts. They can vacation at the best luxury resorts. They can ride around in armored limos and SUVs. They can hold lavish award ceremonies. They can have fugu flown in from Japan. They can drink $5000/pound coffee pooped out by weasels. That's okay.

But let a conservative in fly over country have a 60 watt incandescent bulb, or start up their lawnmower, or eat some ground chuck and that is going to destroy the planet.

2. ''the chemical processes we are now triggering''..by doing what, needlessly flying around the world?

Wonder how many deforested areas could've been replanted for that $6,750,000....................

3. All animals are equal, some animals are more equal than others.

I doubt Orwell intended Animal Farm to be a "how to" manual.
