Actor and aristocrat slacktivist Ian Somerhalder considers himself a “global trotter.” The hypocritical “green energy” fanboy jets around the world lamenting that he can’t even open his swanky L.A. windows thanks to the pollution spewed by your gas-guzzling cars and filthy airplanes.

See, his globe trotting is Important™. Jet engines for me, but not for thee.

And now, after stepping off a plane in London, his elitist sense of right and wrong is under assault by taxi engines that just don’t burn cleanly enough for his refined, environmentally-correct tastes.

Hey, Ian, after your next transatlantic flight, we have a concept we’d love to introduce you to: self-awareness.
