U2: Environmental Hypocrites?

U2 and Bono’s long-held commitment to “save the planet” has come into question after it emerged they have a carbon footprint big enough to fly the band to Mars and back. But I wouldn’t single out U2 in this regard. All kinds of celebrities — from Oprah on down — talk about “going green” and then wouldn’t dream of even going to the local supermarket without hopping on their private jets. All I can say is that I hope some of these famous folk are buying carbon offsets in penance for their environmentally profligate ways.
