Green's Birthday Definitely NOT Green

spa.jpgsirgreen.jpg Britian’s 4th richest man is turning 55 this week, so please don’t use any energy or petroleum for the next couple of days. We’re going to need to offset all of the emissions that Sir Philip Green will be creating.

He and 100 of his closest friends (or just big name celebs) will be private jetting it to “eco-spa” Soneva Fushi on a private island in Maldives. It was all supposed to be top-secret – even to the guests, but The Guardian seems to have figured it all out.

They estimate that each of Green’s guests (what a strange last name for this particular circumstance) will generate 1.9 tons of carbon with their 17,000 km round-trip from England. That includes a private jet to Maldives capital city Male, then a 30 minute seaplane to the resort.

I doubt that includes emissions that will be created during their stay, including what I’m sure will be lots and lots of imported food flown in from just about everywhere. Maybe they should ask the guests to pack some Indian food in their suitcases – might save some chef somewhere a trip.

Suspected guests include Kate Moss and Simon Cowell, with possible performers George Michael and Ricky Martin.

The Soneva Fushi seems to offer some organic food. That and the fact that they don’t offer dry cleaning services are the only “green” things that we can find about them, according to the information available on their website.

I have no issues with spending buckets of money. Sounds like fun. It’s the way that it’s spent that gets me.
