Eco-Loon Chris Packham Cashing In On Carbon Belching Luxury Wildlife Tours

May 8, 2019

Guido exposes eco-loon Chris Packham’s hypocrisy:



Environmental activist and BBC presenter Chris Packham has been busy of late, whether it’s causing chaos for farmers, joining disruptive Extinction Rebellion protests, writing articles warning about the “catastrophic impact” of climate change, ranting about “extreme capitalism” or generally lecturing everyone else on how to live their lives. The petition to have him sacked from the BBC has already racked up a whopping 135,000 signatures in just two weeks…

Funnily enough, Chris’s concerns with climate change and capitalism mysteriously vanish when it comes to his own “Travel with Chris Packham” business. It turns out Chris is quite happy to take punters thousands of miles round the world on luxury wildlife tours, pumping out hundreds of tonnes of carbon dioxide to fly there. Provided they’re paying several thousand pounds each:

  • This August you’ve got a “a rare opportunity to spend time in the company of Chris whilst surrounded by the spectacular wilderness of Alaska” on a Wildlife Photography Cruise – for a cool £7,195 per person excluding flights.
    • Over 11,000 miles return from London via Seattle. With 22 passengers on board that’ll be 75 tonnes of CO2 pumped into the fresh Arctic air…

  • In December 2018 you could have spent two weeks exploring Antarctica with Chris on the luxury RCGS Resolute, complete with gym, spa and steam room, all for the modest sum of £8,799 per person excluding flights.
    • It’s a 16,740-mile round trip to Ushuaia via Buenos Aires. If the full 110 people went that’s a staggering 588 tonnes of CO2 Chris has helped pump out…
  • This February you could have enjoyed ‘The Ultimate Birdwatching Trip to The Gambia with Chris Packham’ – with three separate tours of up to 17 people each and prices varying from a few hundred pounds to over £1,000.
    • Banjul’s a mere 5,560-miles return. Only 88 tonnes of CO2 on Chris’s conscience, although he’s been running this tour for over a decade

  • There’s still time to book onto a “Stunning Photographic Safari in Kenya with Chris” this September, a lucky group of 12 will stay in luxury tents for 8 days for just £7,699 per person.
    • Just the 8,500 miles return to Nairobi. Chris’s safari group will only be adding 58 tonnes of CO2 this time…

All in all that’s over 800 tonnes of extra carbon dioxide Chris Packham is helping to pump into the atmosphere in just 9 months, while trousering big bucks for himself. Good to see he’s taking the climate “catastrophe” as seriously as he’s busy ordering everyone else to…

    Unbelievable hypocrisy. He is a full member of the GW hoaxing society

    And climate alarmist hypocrites.

    Shocking but not surprising, like most green initiatives and dud equipment to deal with a unproved problem. Evokes fury of the Greenaloons against “deniers”.
    All at vast cost to us taxpayers and damage to industry.
    Outlook therefore awful, so better to have elected political leaders with nous and balance.

    Reblogged this on WeatherAction News and commented:
    What hypocrisy from our wannabe green overlords? Peckham, Thompson, Di Caprio, Gore. All exactly cast from the same.
    For thee, not for me.

    Just been on Gridwatch and notice a sudden drop in Solar output just after noon on both Tuesday and today.
    Is Paul able to offer an explanation?

      It’s a model run by Sheffield Uni, not actual metering, so I’d guess it’s either a bug, or an awful lot of thick cloud just happened to bubble up at about the same time both days!

      I think its called afternoon!

        Looks like the gridwatch site has a data dropout glitch then, as the dip doesn’t appear on the Sheffield site or other grid status sites.

      Rain kicking in ?

    You would have to pay me an awful lot of money to go on a trip with Packham,

    He’s morally superior, no explanation required, just like cyclists ignoring red lights and give way lines and lying that the highway code entitles them to block the road to ensure their convenience, just accept it. And he’s on the spectrum (AKA antisocial/awkward) so he’s got a double free claim to guilt free hypocrisy.

      I reckon that every one of us pedalling away in city centres is one less car in the queue ahead of you. And it’s probably safer for all concerned if cyclists can get clear of junctions ahead of the traffic light racers.
      It may interest you to know that most people cycle for reasons of economy, some of us even do it to eke out the lifespans of the old bangers we own, we’re not all sanctimonious Guardian reading p*****s

    Has anyone noticed that these tours are all excluding flights?
    So he will claim all those multiple tons of CO2 are caused by the airlines (who should all be using hydrogen powered zeppelins, or that customers should buy carbon offsets).

    I, along with countless others including Robin Page, have loathed this man for years. He pontificates about the countryside without any awareness or understanding of the rural way of life. That could be ignored, but not his actual interference in policy matters affecting land management issues that have disastrous effects for the future of our wildlife..
    I have,signed the petition but – somehow – it doesn’t quite fulfil what I would like to do to him.

    Then there’s Cameron the Quitter. Apparently, news of the downsides of wood burning heaters hasn’t reached Cornwall yet:
