Telling the 'little people' that they need to change their lifestyle to protect the planet while they continue to live the high carbon life is not just hypocritical - it's destructive to the message.
Yes, we need to cut carbon emissions, we need to do more to protect the planet, but we need honest, realistic methods to do it. Things like the US "Green New Deal" (which would effectively destroy the US economy if enacted) do more harm than good.

Oh, and they've been telling us that we had at best 10 years before the problem became irreversible for about 30 years. Forgive me for being a bit skeptical about their latest claims.
Did you watch Climate Change The Facts last night.
If not I would recommend you do on catch up and then repeat what you have written.
