The hypocrisy of the "green" celebrities

I think everybody is sick of the various Hollywood celebrities touting their green lifestyle and fight for a better environment. For most of them, the main weapon is the hybrid car, their fantasy that driving a Prius will save the world. It's true that Priuses do great on gas, but the same celebrities usually fly private airplanes, which more than compensate for the few gallons of gas their hybrids save. TMZ has published a list of such extravagancies, among which we found:

  • Brad Pitt has several hybrids, but his trip to Namibia used 11,000 gallons of jet fuel, which is enough to take a Prius to the moon.
  • George Clooney has an electric car, but for his Tokyo trip he burned 7,000 gallons of fuel, which might have helped his car cross the Pacific 57 times.
  • J-Lo drives a Prius, but her recent trip to New York (for which she allegedly refused to pay) burned enough gas to propel her hybrid for 45,000 miles.
