Actress Emma Thompson generates 1.67 tonnes of CO2 on 5,456-mile flight to join ‘climate’ protest

In the 2005 film “Stranger than Fiction,” British actress Emma Thompson plays an author who controls a man’s fate and saves him from tragedy.

“’Hypocrite’ Emma Thompson flew 5,400 miles from Los Angeles to join London eco-warrior protest,” The Sun posted to Twitter.

The UK news site detailed the Oscar-winning actress’ 5,456-mile trans-Atlantic flight Wednesday from Los Angeles to London’s Heathrow Airport, where the climate activist group “Extinction Rebellion” attempted to shut down travel the next day over concerns about the environmental impact.
