Celebs With Big Carbon Footprints Join “Call For Code”

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

It’s always wonderful when these rich celebs with oversized carbon footprints extol other people to Do Something, using their star power to make this push but refusing to use their own money

Celebrities Join United Nations’ ‘Call for Code’ Climate Change Initiative

Record producer Quincy Jones and singers Barbra Streisand and Cher took part in the United Nations Human Rights’ “Call for Code” initiative in an event on Saturday, which is also the United Nations’ “World Environment Day.”

Singers Carole King, Rod Stewart, Melissa Etheridge, Sia, and Kesha also joined the call for developers to deal with “climate change” issues, according to a report by Rolling Stone.

The social media initiative is “a call to action, encouraging developers and innovators to use cutting-edge technologies to immediately create solutions for critical issues stemming from the global climate change.”

The stars involved in the initiative were also joined by singers Perry Farrell, Pitbull, and Tegan & Sara, and actors Kevin Bacon, Kyra Sedgwick, Pierce Brosnan, Don Cheadle, as well as Bravo’s Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi.

The Call for Code initiative is reportedly a partnership between the David Clark Cause, U.N. Human Rights, and IBM — which have pledged $30 million toward the project.

In a statement, David Clark said his organization extends its “deepest gratitude to IBM CEO Arvind Krishna, and the entire IBM family for their support and unparalleled leadership in harnessing the Call for Code platform to sign up more than 400,000 developers to help address world problems.”

In fairness, the Call For Code is about more than climate crisis (scam), but, this is what they were focused on over the weekend. Is there really a need for this, though? The solution is very simple: climate cultists give up their own huge carbon footprints. These celebs can stop driving fossil fueled vehicles and taking fossil fueled flights. They can slap solar panels and wind turbines all over their homes and property, disconnecting from the power grid. Better yet, move to a tiny, off the grid home. They can go vegetarian. Give up all the fancy clothes and award ceremonies and more. They won’t.

How much of their own money have they given to this initiative? Or, are they just ClimaVirtue Signalling, thinking their star power is enough?
