People Who Live Big Carbon Lives Call For Reduction In Other People’s Lives

I don’t know what we’d do without all the artists and musicians jetting around the world and using vast amounts of energy

(UK Guardian  ) Björk, David Bowie and a host of musicians, actors, artists, novelists and leading figures in the creative industries have called on negotiators at next week’s climate summit in Paris to reach a deal that staves off dangerous global warming.

The letter to the French foreign minister and the UN climate chief in charge of the talks is signed by a selection of A-listers from the British cultural scene, including actors Steve Coogan and Emma Thompson, musicians Damon Albarn and Guy Garvey, and writers Ian McEwan and Philip Pullman.

The creative industry’s letter to Laurent Fabius, the French foreign minister who will be president of the talks, reads: “We are deeply concerned that our global economic and industrial systems are accelerating rates of extinction, desertification and soil depletion, degrading ecosystems, acidifying and littering our rivers and oceans, and resulting in a relentless rise in greenhouse gas emissions driving irreversible climate change.

“In short, we are overwhelming the planet’s life support systems.”

Interesting. They do realize that their lives and the way they make their money is, according to their talking points, evil, right? That they are exactly the people they are complaining about?

    Sorry driving truck
    Teach carbon pollution reduction works best when all reduce a little rather than some reducing a lot
    This year carbon pollution from electricity power plants will be reduced to a level last seen in 1995, when our population was 25% smaller
    Has that been troubling to your own personal lifestyle what with mandated CFLs and other government intrusions?
