My lifestyle is unsustainable!

Nice, climate expert Rajendra Pachauri says

Hotel guests should have their electricity monitored; hefty aviation taxes should be introduced to deter people from flying; and iced water in restaurants should be curtailed, the world's leading climate scientist has told the Observer.

but neglects to mention he personally flew 443,243 miles in the last 19 months. Not to mention the weekend trip from New York to Delhi to attend a practice cricket match.

Of course the real effect of this would make the rich mobile and the poor will eventually be stuck in a 20 mile bicycle radius without ice for their Big Gulps. Wait, what am I thinking? They’ll get carbon offset refundable tax credits of course!
