You know a certain threshold for something or other has been reached when Piers Morgan is a voice of sanity and reason.
British T.V. host Piers Morgan called out a climate activist about her lifestyle choices, which are not helpful for the planet, as protesters are staging demonstrations across the United Kingdom.
The ongoing protests has been organized by Extinction Rebellion, who want the United Kingdom’s Parliament to take action on climate change. Demonstrations include clogging roads and blocking bridges with their bodies and other big objects.
Morgan asked Extinction Rebellion’s co-leader Skeena Rathor how she arrived to their studio. Rathor said a car sent by the station had picked her up.
When Morgan then asked her if she had a T.V. at her home and if her children use computers, Rathor said she did not think it was relevant to “the planet emergency.”
“Do you see the problem with all this? You go on about ‘My kids can’t get out of bed because they’re all so terrified,’ I’m not surprised they’re terrified because your mum’s telling them everyday the planet’s about to end, and yet, I bet your own carbon footprint, for all the stuff I’ve just mentioned is terrible,” Morgan said.
“So why don’t you give your computer, give up your television, give up your air conditioning, walk your kids to school, get a bike to the studio. Why don’t you practice what you preach?” he added.
The shrike’s response is every bit as feeble, self-serving, and pathetic as you’d expect.
Reynolds laid out one of his good, pithy rips a week or two ago (I have no link for it, sorry) noting that most of the Climate Change (formerly Global Warming, formerly Global Cooling, formerly “the weather”) tards were college kids, then going on to ask why, if the world is ending in ten or twelve years, they’d be staying in college at all.
