Read here. The mega-rich, Republican or Democrat, have a high propensity to be fantastically hypocritical about a wide variety of issues, especially those concerning the climate and the environment. The classic case is the super-rich talking about their concern about "global warming" and then proceed to walk a lifestyle that is diametrically opposed to their talk.
It's bad enough when we are lectured by the likes of super-hypocrites such as Ted Turner, Richard Branson, Oprah, Bill Gates and etc., but it becomes insufferable when a billionaire candidate for president talks about his "global warming" concerns and then blatantly acts in accordance with his internal compass that is stuck on massive material greed.
Mitt Romney is such a mega-rich presidential candidate:
"Mitt Romney is looking to quadruple the size of his $12 million California home, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports...The GOP presidential candidate has filed an application with the San Diego government to bulldoze the 3,009-square-foot beachfront house in La Jolla and replace it with a 11,062-square-foot property...In addition to the California house and a townhouse outside of Boston, which is their official primary residence, the Romneys own a $10 million vacation home on the shore of Lake Winnipesaukee in Wolfeboro, N.H."
