The Nation: All You Peons Must Be Stopped From Resuming Your Pre-COVID Travel Habits

Because you’re destroying the Earth, you know, all from ‘climate change’. No mention from The Nation writer Rafia Zakaria of all the elites flying to the Emmys, or to the United Nations for the latest meeting. Nor that Biden took a fossil fueled flight from D.C. to NYC yesterday, then back to the White House, with Boris Johnson flying to D.C. separately to yammer with Biden after Surrender Joe yammered about ‘climate change’ during his speech

Shaming, huh? How about John Kerry? Biden? Hollywood elites? Meh, they mean the little people. Question: who’s going to stop the travel habits? From the doomsday cult screed

It is no surprise, then, that even though the pandemic hasn’t ended, the easing of travel restrictions has long-suffering American tourists jumping back into cramped airplanes to alight in distant destinations. The numbers testify to this: Easter weekend saw an 800 percent increase in air travel over the same time last year.

Well, a goodly chunk of the nation was still in lockdown Easter 2020, as was most of the rest of the 1st world.

John Kerry climateBut what is good for the American tourist is terrible for the planet. At the height of the pandemic, the grounding of air travel in 2020 led to a 60 percent reduction in carbon dioxide emissions from aviation. One round-trip flight across the Atlantic emits about as much carbon dioxide as heating an average American home with natural gas for a year. And Americans are disproportionately to blame. Prior to the pandemic year, the United States, with just over 4 percent of the world’s population, was responsible for 24 percent of all emissions from passenger flights. And within the US, just 12 percent of adults take 68 percent of the flights. With planes once again ferrying Americans to ostensibly exotic locales, tourists are back to mucking up the planet in the middle of a climate disaster.

One way to prevent this is to stigmatize needless air travel. Several climate activists, including Sweden’s Greta Thunberg, have decided to forgo flying as a selfish activity that worsens the very crisis they’re trying to avert. In Sweden, the hypocrisy of traveling frequently by air while also claiming to care about the planet has birthed the flygskam (flight shame) movement, which uses peer pressure to embarrass those who gratuitously board planes.

Well, there you go. If you are a certified member of the Cult of Climastrology you should stop flying. Will The Nation start shaming the big wigs, like Kerry, Biden, world leaders, celebs, etc? Does shaming even work? Because, let’s face it, most people believe in the climate crisis (scam) in theory, not practice. They’re fine with doing stuff to Other People, but, rarely do anything within their own lives.

Pre-pandemic travel habits must never be allowed to return. American tourists who fly on a whim and imagine that their recycling efforts and use of cloth bags make up for the huge costs they impose on the climate should be taken to task. Saving the planet requires that we stop gaping and gawking at travel blogs and vacation selfies. Instead, everyone who cares about the environment should shame those who clamber onto an airplane every chance they get.

Well, now, that’s what Skeptics have been doing for 20 years, and the Warmists haven’t cared. They’re going to live their lives.

    If they were serious, they’d go after the people traveling on their private jets. But they aren’t serious; they just want another reason to attack people they don’t like or don’t agree with.

  2. Bob Mustaine says:

    You will never see a change in their attitudes, which is this:

    “We elites are so few in number that our use of fossil fuels and resources doesn’t make a dent in the environment. It’s you billions and billions of eaters burning up fossil fuels and using up resources that’s the real problem.

    You see? It’s not they who are the problem…. according to them.

    And there you have it. And their solution is just like Malinda Gates once said (paraphrased):

    “We need to eliminate five billion (with a B) of the eaters to save the planet.” War will not reduce their numbers nearly enough. Conservation will not save nearly enough.

    Welcome to plague world.

    “Travel habits were destroying the earth..”. Well, at least they don’t make overly-dramatic, unsupported statements…

    • Kye says:

      No do they make overly dramatic, never ending prognostications which always fail to materialize.

      They’re phonies and frauds but trying to point that out to them is like showing Elwood the evidence of voter fraud. There is never enough evidence.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Kye: never ending prognostications which always fail to materialize

        The prediction is/was that increasing atmospheric CO2 will cause global warming.

        Kye: is like showing Elwood the evidence of voter fraud

        CLAIMING to have evidence is not the same as actually having evidence.

        • drowningpuppies says:

          So Rimjob, what about the prediction that the Arctic is melting and the seas are rising as a result?
          Got any evidence of that?
          Why of course not because you’re a dipshit.

          Bwaha! Lolgf

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            William Teach is a dipshit, just like his lap-it-up dog, Slurpy Bungholio.

            As far as evidence for the melting Arctic sea ice, look up NSIDC.

            You and your master William T get all your info from perfessers jimhoft and gosselin.

          • drowningpuppies says:

            Maybe Rimjob, dipshit that he is, should learn to READ his own citation period.
            Thanks dumbass for just being you.

            Bwaha! Lolgfy

        • Kye says:

          I posted the evidence here several times. Either you stupidly refuse to see it or you stupidly refuse to accept it. Either way you’re doing something stupid.

          If you really required evidence of why tens of millions of Americans are pissed off perhaps you may investigate on your own. I’m an elitist now, I don’t need to supply you with evidence about the stolen election or the fraudulent vaccine or the millions of illegals I’m making millions off of, thank you very much.

          I told my best friend how I now have entered the elite class of demofascist millionaires and he told me he’s getting me a white custom t-shirt that says “Tax the Rich” in red on the back. We laughed and laughed.

          I just love the fact that you support the junta that’s makin me rich!!!!!

    To Rafia Zakaria I can only say: “F**k off, slaver.”

    While some restrictions can help in the short term, only technological solutions can solve the crisis in any permanent way.

    So glad I decided to stop flying shortly after the TSA was created. Only time I’ve flown since 9/11 is to go out to see my dad in intensive care in Las Crucis, NM after a major stroke. At the time they didn’t know if he’d live out the week. I got to see him and tell him I loved him and tell him goodbye. Six weeks later I drove the 700+ miles to make arrangements for his cremation (it was what he wanted) and then drove home with what was left of him in a very nice hand-carved mesquite wood box. He’s with my momma now at Ft Sam Houston National cemetery. Momma got bottom bunk.

    I’m very eck friendly. I only drive my Highlander when I absolutely have to. My wife used to drive a Prius until some eightball rearended her. She drives a Corolla hybrid now. We converted to compact florescent lightbulbs almost 20 years ago and are slowly converting to LEDs as the CFLs burn out. We sort our waste religiously and use as little water as possible. According to our water and electric bills we use almost 40% less than the average for our area. I personally eat salads 3 or 4 days a week to save on cooking. Are we doing our part?

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Yes, thanks. The next step is to support politicians who recognize the reality of global warming since individuals cannot fight warming alone.
