Emma Thompson admits she was ‘hypocritical’ for flying thousands of miles to protest climate change

“Unfortunately, sometimes I have to fly but I don’t fly nearly as much as I did because of my carbon footprint, and I plant a lot of trees,” she said. “It’s always turned back on the individual. ‘You’re the one who flies, you’re the one who’s using it, you’re the one who wants it.’ The fact of the matter is, everyone has been asking for clean energy for decades. This question and this demand has been made for decades and it has been ignored for decades. So where is the hypocrisy? If I could fly cleanly, I would.”
