Which ‘Environment’ do ‘Environmentalists’ really care about?

Another erudite argument from Christopher Booker in the Telegraph. What amazes me is that so few see the reality. I wonder how many of these ‘environmentalists’ jet off around the world on their multiple holidays. How many have 50in plus LED TVs and how many have ipads, iphones and every ‘necessity’ to modern living. In fact how many are urban sparrows rather than rural ‘low carbon footprint’ dwellers. What I am aware is that few are realists! But then it is easy to pontificate from a warm centrally heated city dwelling with a safe public sector job paying for all the luxury of being an ‘environmentalist’ . It is a true fact that only wealthy countries can afford to be ecologically and environmentally interested in the environment. The rest of the world has to survive or starve!

Slightly mad. Always believes a cup is half full so continues to tilt at Wind Turbines and the politicians that seem to believe it is their god given right to ruin Scotland for a pot of fool's gold.
