People who believe they have the greenest lifestyles can be seen as some of the main culprits behind global warming, says a team of researchers, who claim that many ideas about sustainable living are a myth.
According to the researchers, people who regularly recycle rubbish and save energy at home are also the most likely to take frequent long-haul flights abroad. The carbon emissions from such flights can swamp the green savings made at home, the researchers claim.
Such greenery is largely a middle class occupation, as are those long haul holidays. If they really had the courage of their convictions they\’d not be taking those long flights. The rest is just a fashion statement.
