Travolta and the Celebrity Guidance

I'm tired of Hollywood types asking us to change our lifestyles. The latest in this lunacy is a string of celebrities pitching for modifications in our lifestyle to reduce global warming. First, there was former VP Al Gore, touring the world raising awareness while actually increasing his energy consumption since the movie came along! Tsk tsk, just purchasing credits doesn't allow you to come clean, Al! Now, there's John Travolta doing what Hollywood does best - lecturing us to reduce our carbon footprint, while himself being responsible for 800 tons of CO2 emissions, 100 times that of the average Briton. He owns and operates 5 jets, clocking in at least 30,000 flying miles in the last 12 months. Yeah, we need to cut our electricity consumption down, John - thanks for setting us straight!

I think we need to tell Hollywood types to just shut the f*ck up and stop using their public image to wax on topics unless they are prepared to make real sacrifices.
