The double standards of Western morality are on show at the World Cup
Telegraph says When it comes to rank hypocrisy, the Cop climate jamboree is always hard to beat. Last year, it was Jeff Bezos who set a high bar with the news that he had realised that “the world is finite and fragile” albeit only after spending an estimated $5.5bn (£4.7bn) on an 11-minute trip to space with a squadron of other super-rich galactic explorers.
This time around, it’s hard to know where to start. There was the usual sight of delegates and world dignitaries arriving in their private jets to once again lecture the rest of us on sustainable aviation and other green initiatives. Not to mention one of the most brazen acts of corporate greenwashing ever witnessed: the choice as event sponsor of Coca-Cola, which consistently holds the dubious accolade of being the world’s worst plastic polluter, according to the Break Free From Plastic campaign.
