One of Greenpeace’s most senior executives commutes 250 miles to work by plane, despite the environmental group’s campaign to curb air travel, it has emerged.

Pascal Husting, Greenpeace International’s international programme director, said he began "commuting between Luxembourg and Amsterdam" when he took the job in 2012 and currently made the round trip about twice a month.

The flights, at 250 euros for a round trip, are funded by Greenpeace, despite its campaign to curb "the growth in aviation", which it says "is ruining our chances of stopping dangerous climate change”.

One Greenpeace volunteer on Monday described Mr Husting's travel arrangements as "almost unbelievable".

Another said they were cancelling their payments to support Greenpeace in the wake of the disclosure and series of other damaging revelations of of disarray and financial mismanagement at the organisation, in documents leaked to the Guardian newspaper.

Agreed.

Spaceballs 'could' do his part to save the planet but shutting down his computer, but he can't.

As could the other warmists... but it they'd rather destroy the planet with more CO2 than actually save it, that is according to themselves.

Were not temperature records altered as he claims?

Of course they wete.

To correct for the fact that the time of observation was changed from a warm time of day to a cool one.

Are you going to argue that that correction should not have been made?

Scientists at two of the world’s leading climate centres - NASA and NOAA - have been caught out manipulating temperature data to overstate the extent of the 20th century "global warming".
The evidence of their tinkering can clearly be seen at Real Science, where blogger Steven Goddard has posted a series of graphs which show "climate change" before and after the adjustments.
When the raw data is used, there is little if any evidence of global warming and some evidence of global cooling. However, once the data has been adjusted - ie fabricated by computer models - 20th century 'global warming' suddenly looks much more dramatic.
This is especially noticeable on the US temperature records. Before 2000, it was generally accepted - even by climate activists like NASA's James Hansen - that the hottest decade in the US was the 1930s.
As Hansen himself said in a 1989 report:
In the U.S. there has been little temperature change in the past 50 years, the time of rapidly increasing greenhouse gases — in fact, there was a slight cooling throughout much of the country.
continued:
Delingpole is another high priest of the cult of stupid.

The correction was for a well documented shift in time of observation from a warm time of day to a cool one.

Is any one of you denier idiots actually going to argue that ignoring this factor gives a more accurate picture of how temperatures have changed?

No, as usual you will run away from any real discussion of the science involved like frightened rabbits, but come back later with more baseless accustions like vicious weasels.

The US has actually been cooling since the Thirties, the hottest decade on record

A scene from 'The Day After Tomorrow': in reality, officially approved scientists fudge the data By Christopher Booker

When future generations try to understand how the world got carried away around the end of the 20th century by the panic over global warming, few things will amaze them more than the part played in stoking up the scare by the fiddling of official temperature data. There was already much evidence of this seven years ago, when I was writing my history of the scare, The Real Global Warming Disaster. But now another damning example has been uncovered by Steven Goddard’s US blog Real Science, showing how shamelessly manipulated has been one of the world’s most influential climate records, the graph of US surface temperature records published by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Lies, deception, manipulation of data You warmies can't get your agenda through without lying.
You find a bunch of gullible morons and scare the sht out of them. OH GOD THE EARTH WILL END if we don't' do something now.
Your a bunch of pathetic puppets.

The planet has its own ways of fixing problems. So we in Texas will continue to frack, drill, pump, and refine our precious oil. Doing our part to keep our south Texas gas prices at $3.22Gal. Thats why we can afford to drive our Ford F350 6.2Ltr V8 4x4 lifted trucks that get 8miles to the gallon. Ozone destroyers. You're welcome.¿Y Que putos?-TX

Well, you can believe Mr. Booker, who is a writer, or the scientists, who are....scientists.

And you can believe the Supreme Court, which said today that greenhouse gases need regulating. I know you love the Supreme Court.

You deniers just don't know when the fight is over.

No you libretards have to lie to get your agendas passed and you can't stand it when people call you out.The whole libtard agenda(s) is based on lies and manipulation of data.

If you can find rare 100%(ethanol-free) gasoline in S. Texas, you might get 9mpg.

Keating says he is more than willing to pay the money [10K] but doesn't believe it will happen, "I'm a scientist and I have to go where the science leads me. I have been studying climate change for a long time and I am certain my money is safe. They are in the business of denial and deception, not science. But, if someone could give me a scientific proof global warming isn't real, it would be worth the money."
