Actress Emma Thompson, who proudly proclaims she is a “climate change activist,” flew some 5,400 miles from Los Angeles to London to give a raging ranting speech on climate change at an Extinction Rebellion protest. She railed against the ‘hypocrisy’ of her government concerning climate change after jetting across the planet in a non-carbon neutral form of transportation. No self-awareness whatsoever. Adding insult to injury, the protest announced plans to block flights out of a major airport on the day Thompson arrived. Oops.
Thompson missed the first day of the event because she was celebrating her 60th birthday on April 15th with her husband. “I absolutely wanted to be arrested on my 60th birthday but I didn’t quite manage that. I’m so proud and thrilled to be part of Extinction Rebellion,” the actress said. That’s a heck of a goal… wishing to be put in cuffs on your birthday and sit behind bars all to make a nonsensical climate statement.
From The Daily Wire:
“Ironically, young people attending the protest announced plans to target the Heathrow Airport because “air travel is so damaging to the environment,” Sky News reported.
“In an interview with Sky News, the actress said she has personally seen the “evidence” of climate change, citing “bare glaciers,” and lamented the alleged “hypocrisy” of her government.
“I really do care about my children and my grandchildren enough to want to be here today to stand next to the next generation, who are so inspiring, who so understand the problem. It’s all though we’ve just been going around — well, not me actually, we’ve been banging about it for years, and so have many, many people — but I really do feel like, I can’t even describe the level of hypocrisy of our government,” she told a Sky News reporter.
“We will occupy until you take action because that’s the only way we are going to save our planet,” Thompson said, according to The Independent.
“We have to be here, we have to do this. It’s inconvenient for people sometimes but it’s much more inconvenient to leave a planet that’s so completely destroyed,” she added.
“Thompson, however, is not alone in climate change hypocrisy. As highlighted in a report from Investor’s Business Daily (IBD), Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio and former Vice President Al Gore are also jet-setting Global Warming alarmists.
“It can be estimated that DiCaprio has potentially emitted up to 418.4 tons of CO2 this year because of his globe-trotting. The average American emits 19 tons a year,” a report from The Daily Mail stated last year, IBD noted. The star also “celebrated New Year’s Eve on a yacht in the Sydney Harbor, then flew with his pals to Las Vegas to ring in the New Year a second time.”
“Mr. Gore is a jet-setter, too, and owns a Tennessee mansion that uses “more than 21.3 times that of the U.S. household average” of electricity in a month, The Daily Signal reported in 2017. In a single month, “Gore’s home consumed more electricity than the average family uses in 34 months,” the outlet added.”

According to PJ Media, evidently, the Extinction Rebellion group believes that the planet is in such imminent peril, that the only way to stop it is to yell, scream and destroy other people’s property and glue yourself to things. Yeah, that won’t work. And Thompson hypocritically scolding all of us won’t work either. It’s a non-existent problem called ‘weather’.
Extinction Rebellion excused the actress for her flying faux pas:
“If she has to fly around the world like a climate lawyer might have to fly around the world, it seems counterproductive in the short term but we are looking at the bigger picture.”
"I can't describe the level of hypocrisy from our government."

Over 600 have now been arrested at the Extinction Rebellion event and Emma Thompson is literally begging the police to take her away. Grant her wish.
“We have seriously failed them (the younger generation) and our planet is in serious trouble, we have much, much less time than we thought,” Dame Emma stated.
Jim Treacher put it best: “Sometimes you need to break the law if you want to make a complete fool of yourself.”
