California Governor Jerry Brown is in Europe right now on a climate change tour where he will be the keynote speaker at the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy of Sciences. He will spend 14 days hopping around the continent giving lectures on the coming global catastrophe caused by man’s irresponsibility — like burning thousands upon thousands of gallons of jet fuel.
Brown has been a climate hypocrite for years, using private planes to jet across the globe and spread the global warming alarmist gospel. He says things like, “Human-induced climate change is a scientific reality, and its effective control is a moral imperative for humanity.” Apparently, that doesn’t include the 18,000 miles he will travel to Italy, Belgium, Norway, and Germany before heading back to the states for a meeting in New York City at the United Nations Headquarters. It seems the only imperative is that he gets from place to place in the most convenient form of travel possible. (Notice he’s not biking to any of these meetings.)
Without any irony, the governor told the LA Times, “While the White House declares war on climate science and retreats from the Paris Agreement, California is doing the opposite and taking action. We are joining with our partners from every part of the world to do what needs to be done to prevent irreversible climate change.”
Taking action, indeed. It has been reported that a coast-to-coast round-trip flight in the U.S. is the equivalent of 2 or 3 tons of carbon dioxide per person.
Is he really doing all he can to “prevent irreversible” warming? Well, let’s see.
In 2015, Brown flew to the same Vatican conference with 10 U.S. mayors — all Democrats, of course — where he bashed skeptics of his plight. He flew on a private jet, donated (at a $56,440 value) by Silicon Valley real estate tycoon George Marcus. And don’t forget the fleet of gas-guzzling SUVs that will drive him everywhere he goes once he lands and those that will meet him when he gets back home.
And what does all of this climate hypocrisy earn Gov. Brown? It earned him a seat on Obama’s U.S. delegation for the Paris agreement, among other honors, including Special Climate Advisor for his work with China and Canada on climate deals.
With all of that mileage, one thing is sure: the governor really cares about the environment and how man is ruining it.
