Greenpeace Execs Enjoy Jet-Set Lifestyles Print E-mail

The eco-terrorist organizaton Greenpeace has been blasting business executives for using airplanes to travel to meetings. They contend that airplanes pollute the air too much. Nevertheless, Greenpeace executives continue to globe-trot the world and fly on planes, which are funded by Greenpeace donations.

The Daily Telegraph of London reports that, "One of Greenpeace’s most senior executives commutes 250 miles to work by plane, despite the environmental group’s campaign to curb air travel, it has emerged. Pascal Husting, Greenpeace International’s international programme director, said he began "commuting between Luxembourg and Amsterdam" when he took the job in 2012 and currently made the round trip about twice a month."

Richard Lancaster, a Green peace donor is quoted as saying that, "I volunteer with Greenpeace but work in the commercial world and if I took a job in another country I'd expect to move to where the job is and if I couldn't for family reasons I wouldn't take the job - so I find Pascal's travel arrangements almost unbelievable."

According to the Telegraph, "The flights, at 250 euros for a round trip, are funded by Greenpeace, despite its campaign to curb "the growth in aviation", which it says "is ruining our chances of stopping dangerous climate change”. One Greenpeace volunteer on Monday described Mr Husting's travel arrangements as "almost unbelievable."

Greenpeace refuses to apologize to donors for its globe-trotting jet-setting executives.
