Climate change activist buys a stack of transatlantic plane tickets

“Camila Cabello, Shakira, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and More Sign Letter to Urge Congress to Act on Climate Change” (2021):

Camila Cabello partnered with the National Resources Defense Council Action Fund to help spearhead an initiative addressing climate change. And she’s not alone. Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Shakira joined alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, Lady Gaga and Billie Eilish in urging Congress to pass climate change legislation.

Same person (2022):

Tons of CO2 will be emitted to transport two people who have just seen Hamilton in New York to the other side of the Atlantic Ocean to see… Hamilton.

While trying to watch an Artemis rocket launch that was subjected to abortion care we happened to chat with a Gulfstream pilot who talked about working for some Silicon Valley righteous. They wouldn’t allow plastic bottles on their private jets because that was environmentally unsound. But they had no qualms about firing up a 100,000 lb. jet to carry one or two passengers on a leisure trip.

Some detail from Ham4Choice:

We are devastated by the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling eliminating the right to an abortion which has been a right since 1973. In response, we are teaming up with organizations providing support, access, and travel expenses to those seeking these services.

We’re stronger when we work together. We can stand up for every person’s right to make decisions about their own body and their own lives. Join HAMILTON & Friends in the fight for reproductive access and reproductive choice today.

  1. How Dare She! Why not team up with Greta Thunberg and have them ride across the Atlantic on sailboats?

    As far as the Artemis…ahem…abortion is concerned, I’m….perplexed. The RS-25 engines are the same engines that flew 135 flights on the Space Shuttle. But the Artemis configuration dictates that they’re trying to run these cryogenically fueled engines much closer to the hellish heat being blasted out by the solid rocket boosters. Coldest thing in the world, in other words, much closer to one of the hottest things in the world!

    Apparently they’re having sensor problems, which they claim to have solved, but what I don’t get is how they can’t get the quick disconnect fuel fittings (!!) to work right after all this time.

    More Marijuana Needed!

    “As the space shuttle main engine, the RS-25 has a proven record of launching 135 missions spanning over three decades. At the end of the shuttle program in 2011, 16 RS-25 engines that helped build NASA’s International Space Station and deploy the Hubble Space Telescope, among other achievements, were stored away.”

    Read the rest of the article. It sounds to me like they’re trying to take rocket engines designed in the ’60s and ’70s and finally certified for flight in the 1981 and subjecting them to much higher temperatures and pressures than they were originally designed for.

    Rocket #Science!

    • Is Climate Czar John Kerry’s sailboat yacht still available for charter? Back in 2010:

      “In any case, the 75-foot Isabel, a stylish sloop designed by Ted Fontaine and built in New Zealand by Friendship is now available for charter with rates beginning at $45,000 per week.”

      Why not enlist Kerry’s help and ferry them across the Atlantic on his yacht and do this thing in real style and with a low carbon footprint?

      “The pilothouse of the yacht features a wet bar and wine storage. The Edwardian-style interior is finished in glossy varnished teak. The Isabel can accommodate four guests in two VIP main staterooms with en-suite baths. Tenders and toys include a 13.5-foot Zodiac. And also on board there are all the bells and whistles a busy politico needs, from satellite communications to Wifi.”
