When Environmentalists Show That They Believe Their Own Claims...

From June 23, 2014 Telegraph:
One of Greenpeace’s most senior executives commutes 250 miles to work by plane, despite the environmental group’s campaign to curb air travel, it has emerged.
Pascal Husting, Greenpeace International’s international programme director, said he began "commuting between Luxembourg and Amsterdam" when he took the job in 2012 and currently made the round trip about twice a month.
The flights, at 250 euros for a round trip, are funded by Greenpeace, despite its campaign to curb "the growth in aviation", which it says "is ruining our chances of stopping dangerous climate change”.
One could almost get the impression that the global warming thing is all a big scam.

Saving three hours of drive time each way twice a month is very important, you know.

His time is super-duper valuable, after all.

(Though that said, despite terrible "optics", I suspect the Luxembourg-Amsterdam flight is going to go even if he ain't on it, and thus his marginal contribution to Icky Nasty Warming is zero.)
