Environmentalists are the worst polluters

Greenies are the worst polluters - measured by carbon footprint, which is their measure. What did you expect? They would practice what they preach? From the Telegraph UK:
A survey of travel habits has revealed that the most environmentally conscious people are also the biggest polluters. "Green" consumers have some of the biggest carbon footprints because they are still hooked on flying abroad or driving their cars while their adherence to the green cause is mostly limited to small gestures. ... Geoff Wicken, the author of the report, pointed to David Cameron, the Conservative leader, as a classic eco-adopter because despite styling himself as a green warrior he also takes flights in private helicopters and planes.
"Do as I say, not as I do." This survey was done in the UK. Surveys in the US and France had similar results. Tip: Jim Miller
