Guy Whose Company Has Massive Carbon Footprint Says His Generation Has Failed On ‘Climate Change’

So, hey, I’m wondering if Tim Cook will give up his own massive carbon footprint

Tim Cook: My generation has failed in climate change debate

Apple CEO Tim Cook says his generation failed on climate change.

“We spent too much time debating,” Cook told Tulane University graduates during a commencement speech in New Orleans on Saturday. “We’ve been too focused on the fight and not focused enough on progress — and you don’t need to look far to find an example of that failure.”

During his 15-minute speech, Cook, 58, called on the students to do better for humanity and to ignore the political noise around the climate change issue in order to make a real difference.

“This problem doesn’t get any easier based on whose side wins or loses an election,” he said, adding that people should stop and think about why some deny climate science. “It’s about who has won life’s lottery and has the luxury of ignoring this issue and who stands to lose everything.”

So, I’m guessing Tim rode his bike or walked from his home in Palo Alto, California, to New Orleans, right? Hey, give him props for living in a 2,400 square foot house rather than a giant mansion, but who wants to bet that he flew on a private jet, then took a big SUV limo from the airport? What this guy, who is worth over $1.3 billion, is proposing these students do is ignore reality, be activists, and essentially be low wage workers, because no one of consequence wants to hire a pain in the ass who’ll cause problems. He doesn’t want them to have the same life as he does.

And, what will he do about Apple’s carbon footprint? All the products produced in China and around the world then shipped around the world? The mining of precious metals (using fossil fueled machines)? That iPhones and such are not made to last long, so people have to buy another, leading to massive waste? And so much more. But, hey, it’s easy to be rich off the backs of capitalism then call for Other People to do different, right?

The Apple CEO also briefly commented on the tech industry. He said the algorithms that run our digital lives can keep us wrapped up in ideas we already agree with rather than exposing people to alternative viewpoints. He challenged the students to seek out information from the other side.

Which would be very dangerous to the Cult of Climastrology. Once you start exposing people to the counter-culture view, you might lose them to reality. Do you think I was always a Skeptic? No. The modern Internet with the ability to see other information was one of several things that changed my mind from being a Warmist.
