IS this for real? John Kerrey, Algore, Meghan/Fake Prince Whatever take private jets. Biden and all of the other Worldwide Govertment Boobs are flying around the world for a "Climate Summit" this week. If "Carbon Footprints" are so critical and important, why can't those idiots just Skype??? Hypocrites all!

Also, if the "Extinction Rebellion" morons are serious, they should lead the way by riding their bikes right off a cliff into the ocean (net less CO2 emissions).

You missed the Canadian Prime Minister who puts his carbon tax on, but will not stop using the aircraft for personal vacations.

Are we sure that this isn't a bunch of ideological high schoolers?

“I’m not saying there is anything wrong with taking a holiday in Mexico … But flying is not the way to do it.” How else will you get to Mexico from Canada...Burro?

While I not agreeing with those Extinction Rebellion dumbasses, did you really just ask "How else will you get to Mexico from Canada."?? O.O

Surely you're not referring to a road trip. Just how do you intend getting your wed through the USA

From Mexican law "Bringing cannabis of any amount or any kind – recreational or medical – across the border into Mexico is considered international drug trafficking, and can lead to arrest." Hence, if I still used, I would not.

Well lets see many nations which have very few compaired to the US or Canada flying have very high carbon foot prints. Also there are those who think every one should stay home and go no where except to the store as needed and to work or school. Lets all return to no cars, no planes, no RVs of any type like power boats. Oh yes lets be like some countries that have little or no form of recreation. You know like travel anywhere at any time to enjoy life.

If I recall correctly, our B-747's burned roughly 10,000 lbs per hour. That's a lot of carbon!

"People are traveling by plane ... There is no *need* for that".

Imagine these Robert Cowlings thinking they are the people who are qualified to judge whether others travel plans are sufficiently necessary to be allowed. The Left is an authoritarian disaster.
