But she cares.
Via Daily Wire:
Actress and self-described “climate change activist” Emma Thompson flew from Los Angeles to London — some 5,400 miles — to give an impassioned speech on climate change at an Extinction Rebellion protest. Ironically, the famed actress railed against the “hypocrisy” of her government concerning climate change while at the protest, fresh off her long flight to London. And adding insult to injury, the protest announced plans to block flights out of a major airport on the day Thompson arrived.
The Independent reported Friday that Thompson said in a video prompting the event that she “was unable to be at the first day of the protest because she was ‘away’ with her husband as she turned 60.”
“I absolutely wanted to be arrested on my 60th birthday but I didn’t quite manage that. I’m so proud and thrilled to be part of Extinction Rebellion,” the actress said.
“A representative of Dame Emma said she needed to take the 5,400-mile flight home to London after working in LA,” the report said.
Ironically, young people attending the protest announced plans to target the Heathrow Airport because “air travel is so damaging to the environment,” Sky News reported.
