Where do you stand on holidays in the sun and global warning? We know what the Bishop of London thinks, recently he said “Making selfish choices such as flying on holiday or buying a large car are a symptom of sin. Sin is not just a restricted list of moral mistakes. It is living a life turned in on itself where people ignore the consequences of their actions.”
Yesterday, Ryanair’ boss, Michael O’Leary, not a man known to hold back even at his worst, had this to say:
Speaking at a press conference he said “The Bishop of London has got empty churches – presumably if no one went on holiday perhaps they might turn up and listen to his sermons. God bless the bishop. The bishops have got their own crosses to bear. Goodness knows what he would know about greenhouse gases. He was obviously at some dinner party with the chatterati.”
Apparently, air travel isn’t the problem at all. According to Mr O’Leary 25 percent of global warming is caused by animals, most notably methane from widespread and industrialised cattle farming. To O’Leary, a world full of vegetarian jet-setters must be Nirvana; we await his conversion to Hinduism with much anticipation.
