While he lectures the rest of us, Trudeau has a massive carbon footprint.
Despite shattered credibility and no influence on the world stage, Justin Trudeau still managed to rack up a whopping 3,308 ton carbon footprint in 2018.
That’s according to a report by Bloomberg News.
Among G20 leaders, Trudeau is near the bottom-middle of the pack (5 countries didn’t share info), yet surprisingly outpaces the leaders of the UK, Brazil, the Netherlands, and Spain when it comes to their carbon footprint.
This hypocrisy might be acceptable if Trudeau had actually accomplished anything on his foreign jaunts, but instead Canadians have watched as our standing and influence in the world collapses more and more as he travels the globe at our expense.
Here’s the list:
1. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe: 14,442.1 tons
2. U.S. President Donald Trump: 11,487.3 tons
3. South Korean President Moon Jae-in: 11,461 tons
4. Chinese President Xi Jinping: 8,280.3 tons
5. French President Emmanuel Macron: 7,645 tons
6. Russian President Vladimir Putin: 7,615.7 tons
7. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi: 7,477.3 tons
8. German Chancellor Angela Merkel: 7,325.1 tons
9. Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte: 6,394 tons
10. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan: 5,087.7 tons
11. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau: 3,308 tons
12. U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May: 2,277.6 tons
13. Former Brazilian President Michel Temer: 1,662.7 tons
14. Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte: 1,662.7 tons
15. Spanish Prime Ministers Mariano Rajoy / Pedro Sanchéz: 985.3 tons
Notably, the analysis doesn’t even include support staff, which would have significantly added to the carbon footprint.
The reason many Canadians will be justifiably angered by this is that Trudeau and the elites constantly lecture us on how we need to change our habits and reduce our carbon footprints. Yet, Trudeau, McKenna, and others refuse to use Skype or other video platforms to communicate, and instead rack up huge amounts of international travel on the taxpayers dime – heavily contributing to global emissions.
As always with the elites, it’s “do as I say, not as I do.”
