Meet Emma Thompson

At 16, she was an environmental activist. No, it's not Greta Thunberg... it's Emma Thompson.

    I can't see how flying economy reduces a carbon footprint, flying is flying. However, Emma and her family do fly a lot which means that she does what suits her lifestyle whether it's 'green' or not, so she is a hypocrite.

    So disappointed by her final comment. The less people flying first/business class reduces the amount or first/business class needed which will increase the size of economy which means more people can fly with the same carbon footprint. Don’t get me wrong I would love to fly first class for the experience but there’s a difference between experience and lifestyle. That being said, we all could do better and changing lifestyle takes time and is also not so black and white

    Greenpeace is a watermelon: green on the outside, commie red on the inside.

    Honestly, I can't believe what a hypocrite she is. Flies all that way to lecture people about climate change! And then says 'oh well I have to fly, as it's a necessity'. Well, millions of us need to drive as that's necessity too. Plus she flew business class. If she and the rest of the elite start flying economy, they'd fit more people on the planes and reduce the carbon footprint that way. This is the same woman who sent her daughter to private school despite telling everyone else their kids should go to their local comps. Shes nothing but a hypocrite.

    Emma Thompson is an amazing actress and I'm a great fan of hers. Which is why I find it so disappointing to hear her talking nonsense about flying less. Does she mean that people should stop travelling at all, instead being chained to their lot like mediaeval serfs? Or does she mean that an airplane-full of people should instead travel the flight distance in their completely "eco-friendly" cars?

    Climate change because of human activity is nonsense in order to impose more taxes...
