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.”
