Do as I say, not as I do. This is the left. FABulous elitism and a bunch of people who give themselves a million reasons to both burden everyone else to satisfy their needs to absolve themselves of guilt, while at the same time grinding others under their heels.
Finally, the working class proletarians can “reduce their carbon footprint” while they take a private jet tour around the world to tromp all over otherwise undisturbed areas that are only undisturbed because they want to take them out of any form of productive use to the people who live there.
This is all that this famous “but you can run your economy on eco-tourism” amounts to – setting it up so that happy peasants can appear to be stroking their dolphins, living happily in the 18th century to prop up their world view while they jet overhead. They will no doubt also be the recipients of even more influence and abused political power if Obama is elected.
