One of my objections to the global warming movement is the hypocrisy of many of its principals. Here is a photo (hat tip: WattsUpWithThat) of global warming zealot Jim Hansen of NASA getting arrested (again) in front of the White House yesterday. He is protesting a pipeline that will bring more Canadian oil into the U.S.

Notice anything odd in a photo of a protest about the environment? No?
Let’s try another showing an arrest of another person from another angle.
Still don’t see it? Let’s zoom in on the photo above:
This is the White House. Don’t these environmental activists have enough pride to clean up after themselves?! How about environmentalists setting a good example?

Al Gore, Rajendra Pachauri (head of the IPCC), and Laurie David (“environmental activist” and producer of An Inconvenient Truth) all frequently travel on business jets. Even the Duke and new Duchess of Windsor fly commercial!
Gore has five mansions and a yacht. Thomas Friedman calls global warming a “catastrophe,” yet has a 115,000 sq. ft. mansion in Maryland (below).
As Glenn Reynolds puts it, I’ll believe global warming is a crisis when the people telling me its a crisis start acting like its a crisis.
While I disagree with much of what the global warming movement stands for, I consider myself an environmentalist. But this sort of behavior makes all environmentalists look bad. Please “clean up” your act!
