Virtue-signaling. That’s the name of the game.
For some reason, liberals think their good thoughts and good words and good intentions on all things climate-related replace actually practicing what they preach.
Schwarzenegger spoke at at the COP24 United Nations Climate Change Conference 2018 in Katowice, Poland on Monday, and he basically said that he wishes we could go back in time and reverse our reliance on fossil fuels. He’s confident we’d be “much better off.”
“The biggest evil is fossil fuels: it’s coal, it’s gasoline, it’s the natural gas,” he said.
“Every time you talk about America, you’re right when you say that our leadership in Washington is a little bit backwards, but you’re wrong when you say that America dropped out of the Paris agreement,” he continued.
“Because if you look a little bit beyond Washington, you will see that it is the states and the cities, it’s local governments, that control 70 percent of our emissions,” he added. “And you will see all the extraordinary work that is going on at the state and city level in America. The United States is still in.”
Bernie Sanders isn’t. What was it? $300k on private jet use for ONE MONTH?
Also, how did you get to that conference, Arnold?

Sure, but he only eats meat 3 times a week, which makes him a better person than you, because reasons.
Schwarzenegger later told The Associated Press he has converted his signature Humvee trucks to run on hydrogen, electricity and biofuel and only allows himself to eat meat three days a week.
“I mean, maybe it tastes delicious, but I think we should think then and there before we eat about the world and about the pollution,” he said. “So I discontinued eating meat four days a week. And eventually, maybe we’ll go to seven days”
Hypocrites. Hypocrites everywhere.
