I CAN'T SAY I'M SURPRISED BY THIS REPORT:
People who believe they have the greenest lifestyles can be seen as some of the main culprits behind global warming, says a team of researchers, who claim that many ideas about sustainable living are a myth.
According to the researchers, people who regularly recycle rubbish and save energy at home are also the most likely to take frequent long-haul flights abroad. The carbon emissions from such flights can swamp the green savings made at home, the researchers claim. . . . Some people even said they deserved such flights as a reward for their green efforts, he added.
Of course they do. They're good people.
