Hippy-crites

A London paper is outing the Hollywood elite hypocrites for saying one thing on what to do to stop manmade global warming, but living a lifestyle that is the opposite. They out Leo, Travolta, Brangelina, Madonna, Babs and several others. No surprise here that they are using the old line of "do as I say, not as I do."

I've got a good piece of media bias for you- Americans for Prosperity is doing a hot air balloon tour to highlight the ridiculous cost of global warming legislation. So what does CNN do but run a piece about how much dangerous CO2 a hot air balloon produces. Of course, when Greenpeace did the same thing it was perfectly acceptable. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vz6pg3ldBT0

Not to mention the fact that the point of the tour has nothing to do with whether global warming is man-made or not, it's about the high cost of the proposed 'fixes.' Way to go CNN with your accurate reporting!

I don't think any of these people are Hipocrites. They are at least trying, which is more then I can say for most people. Especially Brad Pitt and Angeline Joli, and Leonardo Decaprio, they really do try to live up to what they ask others too. I am in no way saying they are perfect environmentalist but I do think this article just feeds the "Why do anything of you can't do it perfectly" mentality in regards to the environment and other social issues.

If these hollywood elites honestly care about the dangers of manmade global warming and the great need for change, then they should simply practice what they preach.

Emily...not surprising at all.

FI...I understand and agree with your point on real issues that have real effects on people like AIDs or hunger, but with "manmade" global warming it is a complete farce. And if it was as dire as they claim it will be then I'd think the Hollywood crowd could at the very least give up their private jets, but no way will that happen.

Ron...they never have and they never will, yet they will continue to try and force the rest of us to do what they aren't willing to do themselves.
