    You took a picture of the hand of a 95 year old Nepalese farmer holding a cigarette on your roof?

    To be fair, Feinstein doesn't really claim to give all that much of a shit. Just ask the Sunrise Movement kids.

If someone could make a jacket of those three things it would no doubt be the most popular and prized item in all of your closets.

    I worked for a guy and would watch their dog frequently when they traveled
    On multiple occasions I had to pick up the dog at the airport FBO where it was flown back home as the only passenger on their plane
    I was glad to move on from that situation

    Did the plane ever have teenage sex slaves on it?

    I could get up on my high horse and talk about the simple life I've lived and my very small carbon footprint but.......

    We are all guilty and we are all fucked. I'm pretty sure the ski industry wouldn't function without capitalism and peoples drive to obtain wealth, the core of why humans keep hitting the gas as hard as they can towards societal collapse. At this point I'm fairly convinced it's our purpose to push the earth into it's next cycle and besides, we don't deserve to be here any longer anyways.

    And those climate "protests" are bullshit too. We had a pretty good turn out one day here in Flagstaff, my daughter went with her school even but afterwards you could watch the majority of protesters get into their expensive cars and drive off. I don't think anyone is ready to make the sacrifices it would take to make an actual difference.

    In the end, climate change is probably the best thing for the planet because what the Earth really needs is a massive die off to help clear it of it's human infestation.

    Agree with most of this.
    Problem is how many other species we are taking down with us...
    Time spent skiing cannot be deducted from one's life.

    They drove away in their cars... so what? That's such a short-sighted argument. Cars will all be electric soon so what matters is how we power them. And obviously even electric cars and their batteries have a negative impact, but it's still a move in the right direction compared to the last 150 years.

    Liquid Air is a very interesting non battery grid storage process. Looks much better than batteries at this point. The best part is that it is all off the shelf technology that is allready used globally. Trained crews are already installing that kind of technology for LNG use. No learning curve, no waiting on "just around the corner" wishes, Just build the plant and start storing energy.

    Look it up... it is very cool and available right now.

    Come on, not what I said at all. Don't engage in what-about-ism. You don't have to have zero carbon footprint to give a shit about the issue at hand.

    AFTER jetsetting to DC to talk about climate change to congress, back to SLC, and off to MN.

    As I've said, I have been a huge supporter of Carolines, but her hypocrisy is just insane lately.

    She's even called herself on it....

    The self righteousness smells in this thread of smug and straw.

    Everyone needs to do something
    Most people need to do more
    Some people need to help others
    Nobody can do nothing

    I think Angel Collinson put it best...

    On†#climatestrike†day I flew on a plane across the country, and remained silent. I read as people posted and spoke their minds. I felt guilt and shame of hypocrisy and falling short. I felt obligation to make a climate related statement and couldnít even bring myself to do that. Didnít seem like I should talk the talk when I wasnít walking the walk...
    .
    .
    Then I went sailing to Hurricane Island in Maine and just sat with these feelings. It was ironic because I had an insanely magical weekend and the sailing outing brought me So. Much. Joy! Listening to an old sailor tell stories of circumnavigating the globe using the power of the wind, on the very boat we were on. .
    .
    How do we balance joy and being a hypocrite? Where do we draw the line of self-enjoyment and complacency? How do we fuel our fires of passion in a sustainable way? Iím always pondering these questions. Iím not sure Iíll have an answer anytime soon... it seems to be an evolving dance.
    .
    .
    In the meantime, my biggest takeaway was that guilt and shame are NOT good fuel for positive action and motivation/inspiration. But joy and nature and fun with friends is. And here I am with the energy to post about my process and my struggles not from feeling bad but from feeling good. Do the means justify the ends? Who knows... but I know I love life. I love you! I love Mother Earth. I believe in the dance and I believe in solutions. I am more fueled for political action and using my voice and embracing my process and my flaws. Onward and upward .️ u!

    Basically her entire "online persona" and social media accounts are non stop "save the planet" stop polluting, etc......then images of helis for photo ops and trips all over the world in rapid succession. More of the same "do as I say, not as I do" bullshit.

    Don't base your entire existence around something and get all pissy when people call you out on your hypocrisy. I hope she sees this and becomes more aware of her activities, or at least has beeter sense what to post and what not to post.
