A fortnight ago it was Matt Damon. Now say hello to our very own celebrity climate hypocrite, Chris Hemsworth. Egregious celebrity climate hypocrite.

The Northern Star, September 20, 2019:

Hollywood superstar Chris Hemsworth joined the Global Climate Strike in Byron Bay earlier today.

Joined by his three children and wife Elsa Pataki, the superstar turned heads while walking among the 5000-strong crowd.

The actor then posted a video he took from the event, with a lengthy caption in favour of the organisers.

“What do we want? Climate Action!,” he posted.

“The kids have spoken!

“Well done to all the young climate strikers for taking part in #climatestrike drawing immediate attention to the climate change emergency!!”

That’s the Chris Hemsworth who appears to use private planes like us mere mortals use Ubers. News.com.au, Monday:

Australia’s favourite superstar couple Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky touched down in Sydney on Sunday after taking a private jet from their Byron Bay home.

Byron to Sydney by private jet, hey? Climate action.

Remember, details of private jet emissions are available in this piece on the travel choices of those other climate warriors, Harry ‘n’ Meghan, from the BBC.
