I think the irony is that Group Thinkers are perceived to be hypocrites while the opposing views donít see themselves in that way.
The only cure for that is having a fist fight we can bet on the outcomes.
What I object to is being told by someone (e.g. a politician from The Greens) that "I need to do this" to prevent Climate Change when we all know they are not doing it themselves.
Take for example the self declared "climate warrior" Zali Steggal. She lives in the city and drives around in a Nissan Patrol. In spite of her saying she saying she was going to get rid of it she hasn't and uses the justification that she has kids to drive around.
Then there is the fact that Adam Bandt is the only Green federal politician who owns an electric car.
I am not going to listen to people who are flagrant hypocrites, and it follows that I am not going to listen to people who proselytize their hypocritical dogma.
I rarely fly. I would think that Zali Steggal, Sarah Hansen-Young, etc add heaps more to the carbon footprint than I ever will.
Yet they are put up as the leaders we should listen to when it comes to climate change.
You want credibility? Lead by example. Turn off the air conditioning in Parliament House.
Good on you Adam Bandt.
