Green Aussie idiot is going to kayak from Canberra to Paris…uhmm…by plane


The Green taliban fools really don;t realise just how foolish they look when they pull their lame stunts.

One Aussie Green idiot reckons he is going to paddle his kayak from Canberra (which is landlocked) to Paris…but of course he is a Green so his carbon footprint is going to be enormous.

He will risk confronting alligators, polar bears and container ships but in the end he will be able to say to his grandchildren, “I did my best”.

Engineer, grandfather and ecowarrior Steve Posselt begins an 8000-kilometre kayak journey from Canberra to Paris on Thursday.

He intends to drag and paddle his wheeled kayak halfway around the world to deliver a message on behalf of all Australians who want action on climate change. The message: we are in this fight against global warming.

His green bull-dust has been busted though.

Eric Worrall explains.

An Australian grandfather has announced plans to Kayak from Canberra, Australia’s landlocked capital city, to Paris, to deliver a message about climate change to the upcoming COP21 Paris climate conference.


Naturally, in the time honoured tradition of climate activism, activist Steve Posselt plans to take full advantage of the opportunities offered by our modern fossil fuel powered economy to achieve his goal. Not only does his kayak appear to be a modern plastic construction, lightweight and safe, rather than the kind of fire burned dugout effort you would expect from a truly committed eco-warrior, but Steve’s route to Paris includes a couple of long haul airline flights.

“From Canberra he drags his kayak to Port Kembla and then paddles up to Sydney. He will fly to the Gulf of Mexico, then paddle through North America to Canada. From there he will fly to Britain and will paddle through England and across the English Channel to Paris. There he will deliver his message at the United Nations Climate Summit in November 2015.”

Nevertheless, you have to admire Steve Posselt’s audacious hypocrisy, given that he is employing all this fossil fuel sourced goodness to achieve his goal;

“It is not a big deal to go to a zero carbon economy. It’s about political will.”

You first mate.

Ecowarrior? More like Eco-fool or Eco-hypocrite.
