And the latest winner in the category of “You Can’t Make This Stuff Up”:
At the United Nations climate summit (COP28) last month, a session was held outlining what activists could do to practice “Responsible Yachting.”
The conference has already drawn criticism for being perceived as elitist and hypocritical, as thousands of politicians and businesspeople have flown to an oil-rich state to find ways to advance a global green energy transition and alter peoples’ habits to better protect the environment.
“It just goes to show you that, at a time when these people are talking about telling poor countries to switch over to renewable energy, and people are starving, we also have folks driving the climate movement hosting ‘environmentally-friendly yachting’ panels,” Dan Kish, a senior research fellow for the Institute for Energy Research, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “It’s absolutely classic… they tell everyone else to sacrifice while they host discussions on ‘sustainable yachting’ among themselves.”
We don’t know about you, but we’ll sleep better tonight knowing that a group of elitist and hypocrites were openly debating “sustainable interior finishing” of their multi-million-dollar yachts… that is, until they flew home on their private jets.
