Emma is actively involved to defend the environment but in April 2019 she was lambasted for her decision to fly from the US to attend a climate change protest in central London.
When the interviewer asked if she was prepared for all the criticism and accusations of being a hypocrite se said: “I may well be hypocritical by flying but I’m conscious of flying so I fly much less, but sometimes I have to when I’m working. But I’ll continue to find ways to get to places without flying”.
I think they’ve been looking for a pretext to discredit her activism because that clearly annoys someone in high places.
“Every single person on this earth has the power to change the world!”.
Emma Thompson, activist and actress.
I went vegetarian in 1995 coming from a meat-eating family, and I headed for a compassionate living. I think that respect for environment, nature and animals is very important.
It has been a joy for me when I discovered that Emma has a long history of environmental activism with Greenpeace! ♥️
In August 2014 she and her sweet daughter Gaia Romilly Wise went on a Greenpeace “Save The Arctic” expedition and you can find many photos and videos on line to raise awareness of the danger of drilling for oil.
Each of us must contribute to help saving the earth! Emma played also a role in the short vegan film “Extinction”.
In this film she stars as a member of Extinction Rebellion.
