Hypocrite alert

Celebrities were thick on the ground in New York at the "climate" march having jetted in in their private jets and limousines to tell the  proletariat to reduce their living standards to "cure"the planet by reduction of consumption.
Of course doubling of electricity and fuel prices is of no consequence to the uber-rich who exhorted the masses to do what they say and not what they do. Even with some of them having carbon footprints the size of small cities the hollywood hypocrisy is still lost on the true believers .
From the  Climate Depot:
New York City – Actor Mark Ruffalo declared certain questions off limits to the media today at the People’s Climate March in New York City.
During the media availability press event, Ruffalo was asked in a one-on-one interview with Climate Depot if celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio, who boasts that he will fly around the world to fight global warming and former VP Al Gore,  are the best spokesmen for global warming given their huge carbon footprints. (See: Leo DiCaprio: ‘The Argument Is Over. Climate Change Is Happening Now’)
“Oh brother. That is a question you shouldn’t be asking here today because that defies the spirit of what this is about,” Ruffalo told Climate Depot.
