Carole Malone criticized Joanna Lumley’s proposal as a “hypocritical” suggestion to ration luxury to save the planet, arguing that it is “absurd”. The heated feud arose after the Absolutely Fabulous actor proposed the creation of a rationing system under which people would have points to spend on vacations or lavish consumer goods, ultimately helping to fight the crisis. climate.
Speaking on the Jeremy Vine show on Five, Ms Malone said, “So back to Joanna Lumley. What she’s saying is every little thing you do matters.
“Actually, I think it’s nonsense. Because every little thing we do a little bit of recycling but that’s it.
“None of this matters when China is making it very clear that it will not start reducing its carbon emissions until 2030.
“They are not going to go zero carbon until 2060.
“And you have the same with Russia. They pump it up.
“So you cut the meat half a day a week. It makes no sense. Boris said quite clearly the other day that recycling is nonsense.
Co-panelist Matthew Stadlen said: “Do you think that makes it more or less likely, Carole, that China and Russia will eventually join us.
“I was just going to say – how do we run the world like Boris Johnson claims and by the way our government should be doing more than it is?”
“How can we run the world if we don’t continue to do our part?
“We can’t lecture China and Russia like we should be if we say right, we can’t be bothered because they don’t.
“It’s about taking small steps. That’s all we can do.
Ms Malone said: “We lead the world. We produce 1% of global emissions.
DO NOT MISS :
“We lead the world by our actions, by what we do.
“China produces 26% of global emissions, India almost as much.
“So you say anything. We are already leading the world.
