Good – I won’t have to fear ending up next to him on my next flight

 

But what about his unused frequent flyer miles?

But what about his unused frequent flyer miles?

Bawling meteorologist Eric Hothaus swears off flying over concerns about global warming.  He’s already converted to vegetarianism to cut his contribution to methane production and vows, “if this doesn’t end CO2 emissions, I’ll just quit breathing – Mother Gaia, I hear you!”.

I hope he sets an example for all the celebrities, politicians and junket-loving UN staffers who love to jet off to global warming conferences in Bali. Especially the bit about breathing.

    Eric’s adorable – “Skype works internationally”.
    As a corporate jet mechanic, I’d like to tell him what to do with Skype.
    Even here in the technologically advanced twenty first century, men still do business face to face. You can’t read a man’s mind unless you’re in his presence.
    ‘Course, none of the above applies to a guy who cries over Al Gore-isms…

  2. I read about this dolt in a tweet! The guy is certifiably whacked!

    This guy is one of the very few Warmers who is not a contemptible hypocrite. (Ed Begley, Jr. is another.) Doing what one preaches is noble. I say two cheers for this clown.

    I wish he would develop a Personal Carbon Footprint (PCF) measuring system and start publishing the results for selected opinion leaders like Al Gore, Barbara Striesand, Steven Speilberg, Katie Couric, Michael Moore, etc.

  4. sounds good to me:

    “… On Friday afternoon the weatherman tweeted: ‘No children, happy to go extinct, which in and of itself, carries a certain sadness. #IPCC’

    His next tweet said: ‘Its a very emotional decision. Mixed feelings. adios babies?’

    According to another tweet from Holthaus, the Dutch artist known as Tinkebell, who calls attention to animal rights issues through works that use the remains of dead animals, had herself sterilised last week for a similar reason.

    Holthaus, who now writes for Quartz, has decided he will also reduce his carbon footprint by giving up on air travel.

    ‘I just broke down in tears in boarding area at SFO while on phone with my wife. I’ve never cried because of a science report before. #IPCC,’ was his first tweet on around 2pm on Friday. …”

    He will forego having children to reduce his carbon footprint. This guy would see the human race go extinct to save the planet for Cockroaches. He is one seriously messed up dude.
