🧵 THREAD: As an independent journalist, there’s nothing I like more than exposing hypocrisy.
#1 “Avoiding a climate disaster will be one of the greatest challenges we have ever faced.”
#2 “Climate change is real, it is happening right now.”
#3 “Every time I see a picture of an ocean creature caught in plastic, I’m heartsick. Every time I drink from a plastic bottle or use a paper towel, I’m aware of my contribution to the problem.”
#4 “The climate crisis is the greatest challenge humanity has ever faced.”
#5 “When it comes to the challenge of climate change, the falsehood of today’s naysayers is only matched by the complacency of our political system.”
#6 “Flying must become more expensive.”
Greta Thunberg’s right-hand, Luisa Neubauer, strongly criticizes people who travel by plane, but according to Instagram, she has already taken luxury vacations on all continents. Rules for thee but not for me.
#7 “The fact that sea level in New York, in New York Harbor, are now a foot higher than a century ago […]”
#8 “We do not want to return to that situation and what that CO2 increase results in is a steadily increasing temperature so we’ve already increased by two degrees.”
#9 “We are running out of time, how many times have I found myself saying this over recent years?”
– King Charles (@RoyalFamily)
#10 “Climate change is real.”
