Black Eyed Peas rapper Will.i.am is the typical Hollywood-esque global warming alarmist. He’s also the typical hypocrite who touts the apocalyptic effects of climate change, and then rides around in his helicopter — or, technically, his “hip.hop.copter.”
Mr. Will.i.am attended a climate change conference at Oxford University before lifting off to carry the Olympic torch on the same day.
Energy Live News reported that during his stay in Oxford Will-i-am met with climate analyst Miles Allen and purportedly said:
“Climate change is confusing. It should be the thing that we all should be worried and concerned about as humans on this planet, how we affect the planet, our consumption and how we treat the place that we live in… Who is causing the confusion and why isn’t it a priority?”
We should be worried about “our consumption?” The “we” part must not include him, or his gaz-guzzling hip.hop.copter.
Gigawize says the copter sucked up nearly 72 gallons of gas on its excursion from London to Oxford, which would’ve discharged almost a ton of CO2. But here’s the kicker. Google Maps reveals that a car ride from London to Oxford is a whopping 60 miles, which would take maybe an hour to drive.
Evidently, spending 60 minutes in a car would have been too time-consuming.
