Tim Blair is right – the future of travel is for the elite and rich to enjoy themselves without having to share a flight with bogans. After all, why shouldn’t David and Kristan Williamson enjoy a trip to Noumea without having to bump up against those nasty average Australians?
The hypocrisy is striking, with all of these carbon evangelists enjoying free travel around the world while preaching for the lesser mortals to restrict their travel. At least the puritans attempted to lead a pious life, often wearing hairshirts. I can’t imagine Al Gore wearing a hairshirt or making any sacrifices to his Carbon God.
