    His serious aviation habit means he is hardly the best person to lecture others on the environment. But John Travolta went ahead and did it anyway.

    The 53-year-old actor, a passionate pilot, encouraged his fans to "do their bit" to tackle global warming.

    But although he readily admitted: "I fly jets", he failed to mention he actually owns five, along with his own private runway.

    Clocking up at least 30,000 flying miles in the past 12 months means he has produced an estimated 800 tons of carbon emissions – nearly 100 times the average Briton's tally

    I find it frequently amusing the number of people especially those in the media and celebrities that often tout the benefits of living the green lifestyle and how Americans should sacrifice to offset global warming and condemn oil companies and yet at the same time do not walk the walk. Take Mr. Travolta who flys a commercial aircraft for his private plane and one that is not noted for fuel economy or being environmentially friendly by any stretch of the immagination. However this does not stop Mr. Travolta from using this aircraft to travel and lecture others on Global Warming.

    Liberal elites are not expected to adhere to their own teachings. They have been honored with the role of teacher (savior) in their minds and they always find ways of justifying their actions.

    All you gotta do is look at Al Gore. He sure ain't practicin what he's preaching. From what I've read he leaves a giant sized carbon print everywhere he goes especially when he's laughing his way to the bank.

    Speaking of jets and limos

    Ms Jorgensen reckons that between her and her rivals the total number of limos in Copenhagen next week has already broken the 1,200 barrier. The French alone rang up on Thursday and ordered another 42. "We haven't got enough limos in the country to fulfil the demand," she says. "We're having to drive them in hundreds of miles from Germany and Sweden."

    And the total number of electric cars or hybrids among that number? "Five," says Ms Jorgensen. "The government has some alternative fuel cars but the rest will be petrol or diesel. We don't have any hybrids in Denmark, unfortunately, due to the extreme taxes on those cars. It makes no sense at all, but it's very Danish."

    The airport says it is expecting up to 140 extra private jets during the peak period alone, so far over its capacity that the planes will have to fly off to regional airports – or to Sweden – to park, returning to Copenhagen to pick up their VIP passengers

    These people have no compunction whatsoever of not walking the walk but would impose their views upon the world.

    Don't forget Revolta is one of those wacko cult types from Clearwater Florida.

    That's because it's all about money and power, they don't give a damn about the planet. If they gave a damn, you wouldn't be able to exchange money for creating carbon. They need this to implement their plan of a global economy and global taxation and redistribution of wealth, while the money passes thru their hands so they can get their take first.
