Still doesnt answer Nparker's question about flying and virtual attendance.
Btw wtf does 'ugh' mean? Does it give your position added gravitas? Or is it simply meant to demean and belittle the person you are responding to?
You should seriously think about the impact of your choice of words. This is a forum for debate and while I appreciate your providing the link to show an attempt at responding to Nparker, it loses all credibility when you open with 'ugh'
The "ugh" is a vocalization of my frustration with Nparker's ongoing "all-or-nothing" approach to various topics on the forum. As in, because the Mayor touts environmental stewardship, the thought of her jumping on a plane to fly somewhere is somehow unimaginable. That anyone who supports environmental initiatives must live their life 100% in an eco-friendly manner.
Guess what? People are allowed to support environmental causes while still consuming fossil fuels. People are allowed to gather in person to discuss environmental issues, getting there via plane, and not be considered hypocrites. Is this really the path you want to go down, that if we're not living all-or-nothing lives behind what we support, we're hypocrites? Sorry, that's not a reality of living. There are things that each and every one of us do that are inherently hypocritical, and that's ok.
