The Enviro-Hypocrites

Mark Steyn skewers the AGW Alarmists and points out how so many of them are absolute hypocrites.  Here's a preview:

Even making allowances for the stupidity of youthful idealism, the protesters in the streets of Copenhagen seem especially obtuse. Far from sticking it to the Man, they're cheerleading for the biggest Man of all: They're supporting a new globalized feudalism in which Prince Charles, Prince Al, Prince Rajendra and others "very high up in climate change" jet around the world at public expense telling the rest of us we need to stay put. A British parliamentarian recently proposed that everyone be issued an annual "carbon allowance" that would be drawn down every time he or she booked a flight or filled up his car or bought a washer and dryer instead of beating the laundry on the rocks down by the river with the village women every week. You think the Prince of Wales or any other member of the new global elite will be subject to that "allowance"?

P.S. We should compile a list: Mark Steyn has already come up with "Tree Ring Circus".

Any others you can think of?
