Try teleconferencing next time, jerks.

2007 U.N. Climate Change Conference held in Bali, Indonesia.

2008 U.N. Climate Change Conference held in Sydney, Australia.

2009 U.N. Climate Change Conference held in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Lots of long distance,  heavy-carbon-footprint private jet and airline flights.  And still, the hypocritical pinheads in the “global warming” movement want to restrict everyone else’s flying:

Global Warming Activists Furious with Harrison Ford

Environmental activists have blasted Harrison Ford for making “unnecessary” trips by air, following revelations he once made a jet journey to buy a cheeseburger.

The “Indiana Jones” star began flying when he was 52. After receiving his license, he went on to purchase several aircraft, which he keeps at Santa Monica Airport in California.

He recently revealed in an interview the extent of his love for piloting, telling Britain’s Live magazine, “Learning to fly was a work of art. I’m so passionate about flying I often fly up the coast for a cheeseburger. Flying is like good music; it elevates the spirit and it’s an exhilarating freedom.”

But the 67-year-old has come under fire from experts at Carbonfootprint.com over the comments, who are outraged he would make an airplane journey for such an “unnecessary” trip.

And Dr. Wendy Buckley, director of the Web site, has called on Ford to set an environmental example and cut back on his flying.

She tells WENN, “Flying is a huge source of carbon emissions and making unnecessary journeys by plane can no longer be seen as responsible to our environment.

The rules are for thee, and not for me.  Jackasses.

The only thing that would make this story better is if Harrison had flown up the coast, stopped to eat lunch, and said “you know, they charge too much for their cheeseburgers here; I think I’ll fly back down the coast to Santa Monica and check out the restaurants there.”

    How come nobody calls out Britney Spears for routinely sending her private pilot to Louisiana to fetch her favorite latte? Or Al “Douchebag” Gore, for his megawatt utility bills, constant intercontinental travel, and three…count ’em: three huge ass computer monitors and plasma television, all running at the same time in his over-flowing office? What a bunch of whiny, snot-nosed hypocrites. They can BITE me. *heads off to turn on all the lights in the house*

    Let’s put a space heater in the same room as a window air conditioner, turn them both on, and let them fight to the death. We could sell tickets on Pay-Per-View: “Climate Change Smackdown!”

    Plenty off culprits – Rajendra Pachauri flew home to India for a cricket match, and back again immediately after. I know people who have chartered jets to Al Gore (I work in general aviation, the little end) and Prince Charles.

    Harrison Ford was just doing what private pilots do, flying for the pleasure of flying. It seems that is unacceptable to Dr Buckley, and we should ban private aviation. Well the Australians have a saying, that someone has “Buckley’s chance” of a highly unlikely outcome they desire. Appropriate here.

      “Buckley’s chance” – is that like a snowball’s chance? Oh, wait. Hell HAS frozen over, given the status of “global warming,” and perhaps a snowball does in fact have a chance in Hell.

      I love to fly, and not just on the broom. 🙂 Nothing beats G.A. for getting where you need to go (or just plain WANT to go) quickly, conveniently, and – most importantly – enjoyably.

      Thanks for the comment. Hope to see you here again.

    It’s lovely to see some aviation in a blog. The Supercub landing is awesome! I am actually a professional GA pilot, flying PA31s, but love any type of flying.

    You are quite right about Buckley’s chance!

    • Wiccapundit says:

      I’m glad someone else likes the aviation stuff. I would post it anyway, ’cause it’s my blog, but it’s nice to know I’m not a club of one around here.

  5. Well, I have no love of Mr. Ford…he is one of them, after all. I bet he was surprised at the vitriol coming from the AGW fanatics, especially in view of the fact that they never target their own. Ford’s mistake was in admitting it, instead of keeping quiet about it 😉

      I’ve been really conflicted about HF. He has been the national Young Eagles chairman for EAA, and has always been a big supporter of general aviation. On the other hand, he signed the petition in support of the pervy Roman Polanski, so he really lost me on that one.
