America's Wealthy Elites Responsible for 40% of Emissions While Lecturing Everyone on Climate Change

Forty percent of greenhouse gases emissions in the United States come from 10% of the country’s wealthiest households, according to research published in PLOS Climate.

PLOS Climate is an open-access journal that aims to advance the understanding of climatic patterns, processes, and impacts with open research from diverse perspectives.

According to the study, which analyzed household income data from 1990 to 2019, 40% of total U.S. emissions were associated with income flows to the highest earning 10% of households,” while GHG emissions among the bottom 90% had decreased.

It also adds that income from the top 1% was “linked” to upwards of 17% of GHG emissions.

The study, which progressive researchers conducted, suggested remedying this “emissions inequality” via “an alternative income or shareholder-based carbon tax.”

Doing this may aid in “raising revenue for climate finance,” they wrote.

It’s also worth noting that the richest people in America are self-described climate activists despite pumping out large volumes of GHG emissions.

One of those people is Bill Gates, who owns four private jets and flies around the world to lecture people on climate change.

Earlier this year, Gates voiced that many Westerners will refuse to live in poverty in order to help fight climate change.

“I don’t think we can count on people living an impoverished lifestyle as a solution to climate change,” Gates said at an event in India on March 1.

“You know, meat consumption in India will be less … That’s wonderful. Will all Indians become vegetarians? Will all Americans become vegetarians? I wouldn’t want to count on it. Anybody who wants to evangelize that, they’re welcome to. I won’t resist in any way,” Gates added.

Other hypocritical private jet flyers include Jeff Bezos, Michael Bloomberg, and Mark Zuckerberg.

Many in the Biden administration have a massive carbon footprint while ordering the peasants to fight climate change.

Climate czar John Kerry declared he was part of a “select group of human beings” called to save the planet.

In 2019, Kerry defended taking a gas-guzzling private jet to accept the Arctic Circle award in Iceland in 2019.

“If you offset your carbon, it’s the only choice for somebody like me who is traveling the world to win this battle,” Kerry said.

Naturally; Leftist elites are for tax increases that they can always avoid, disarming citizens while their private security squads are armed to the teeth, flooding our streets with illegal immigrants that only invade their gated communities during cleaning and landscaping hours, rationing our health care while they have concierge doctors at their beck and call, driving up energy costs that go directly to the profit margins of their energy companies and investments…
