“Sorry, sometimes I have to fly, but I don’t fly nearly as much as I did because of my carbon footprint, and I have a lot of trees,” she said. “It’s always back to the individual. “You’re the one who is flying, you’re the one who’s using it, and you are the only one who wants it that way.’ The fact of the matter is, everyone has been asking for clean energy for decades to come. This is a question, and this question has been around for decades, and it has been ignored for decades. So where is the hypocrisy? If I was able to fly it, clean it, would I have to do that.”
