Emma Thompson Flies 5,400 Miles in Private Jet to Protest Climate Change
Actress Emma Thompson has flown 5,400 miles, creating a HUGE climate footprint, to protest Climate Change. A flight from Los Angeles International Airport to London Heathrow generates at least 1.67 tonnes of CO2. She went to take part in the ‘Extinction Rebellion’ protests in London.
No wonder she has been labelled a “champagne socialist”!
It is so typical of liberals. They want others to closely guard their carbon footprint as they create one big enough for 100 people. (As we reported yesterday, they do the same thing with redistributing the wealth. They give almost nothing to charity while calling for everyone else to sacrifice on Tax Day.)
“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 said. (They said the same thing when I was in High School 35 years ago!)
“I have seen the evidence for myself and I really care about my children and grandchildren enough to want to be here today to stand with the next generation.”

Ironically, Emma’s participation comes as protesters were planning to disrupt flights at Heathrow airport today. Extinction Rebellion had vowed to target Heathrow Airport prompting police to warn them to expect a ‘robust response’.
‘And we will occupy until you take action because that is the only way we are going to save our planet. It’s hard, it’s inconvenient sometimes but it’s much more inconvenient to leave a planet that’s so completely destroyed that our grandchildren will be up against things that we cannot even imagine.’ She said.
This is the fifth day of these protests that are happening all around the capital. Reporters witnessed many younger protesters crying at the threat of being arrested. So far there have been more than 570 arrests in connection with the protests.
The Daily Mail expands on the insanity of Emma’s thinking process:
Miss Thompson said she had wanted to join the protests sooner but it had been her 60th birthday on Monday.
Dressed in black dungarees and wearing a green sticker bearing the Extinction Rebellion logo on her chest, she said: ‘I was not here on April 15 because I was with my husband because I was 60.
‘I absolutely wanted to be arrested on my 60th birthday but I haven’t quite managed that.
‘I bet that will happen in the future.’
It comes as Heathrow Airport said they are ‘working with the authorities’ to address any threat of protests from climate change activists which could disrupt the airport.
The Oscar and Bafta-winning actress added: ‘I am so proud and thrilled to be part of Extinction Rebellion, a new movement that has come up behind all the old ones that I’ve been part of since I was 16 years old.
‘A movement that’s telling it like it is and saying to government ‘look, there’s no more time. You can’t lie and you can’t stall any longer’.

She took some flack from the protesters, who understandably, were confused as to why she was flying in and out of Heathrow as they were protesting Heathrow.
Her spokesman said: ‘She had to fly home at any rate, it was just earlier than she thought she could have. At the moment, that is our only available and practical means of trans-global travel.’
How do they miss the common sense?
