Suzuki’s Large Carbon Footprint

April 30, 2018
Suzuki’s Large Carbon Footprint

For many years now we’ve heard David Suzuki express support for carbon taxes and lecture Canadians about the need to reduce their carbon dioxide emissions.

With that in mind, I decided to take a closer look at Mr. Suzuki’s carbon footprint. It seems that while his Foundation’s website encourages Canadians to “videoconference” and vacation “close to home,” Mr. Suzuki seems to want no part of such restraint. 

Here are some of the trips the famous British Columbian has been on in the past few years:
