An ECO mob protester accused of blocking busy roads enjoyed an 81,000-mile gas-firing global trip in an 18-year-old 4×4.
Embarrassing 44-year-old Emma Smart toured 50 countries in 858 days in a diesel-powered Toyota with her partner Andy.
Smart, a biologist, quit his job for the ride and boasted at the time: “We’ve saved and raised £20,000 to cover fuel costs.”
But now she’s come under fire for her role in the crippling Insulate Britain protests that have caused misery and crippling drivers on the M25.
Despite his 2012 world tour, critics called him “hypocritical” as he brought Britain’s busiest road to a standstill.
A photo during the recent protests shows Emma sitting cross-legged in the middle of a busy road and holding a sign that reads, “I fear my nieces will face violence and starvation due to the climate crisis.”
And in May, Smart was accused of blocking traffic in his hometown of Weymouth, Dorset, as part of another climate protest.
An enraged driver last night, after hearing the glob-trotting that pollutes him, said: “Emma Smart, who felt ‘obliged’ to stop traffic on the M25 this morning – hypocrisy at its best. 81 thousand miles journey.”
Another exploded: “And so another fruitcake was revealed as a hypocrite.
“Emma (not so much) Smart begs us to reduce our carbon footprint a few years after we drove 81,000 miles around the world on diesel in a two-year touring.
“Hypocrisy is everywhere if you look carefully enough.”
Smart said last night: “Research I did prior to my trip in 2012 concluded that when we went on the adventure, we would produce 62 percent less CO2 per day compared to when we live in a shared four-person house in the UK.
“For the past two years, I have voluntarily dedicated my life to helping people in this country and around the world come out of this crisis we are all in together. I found hope again with Insulate Britain.”
Smart isn’t the first eco-hole to be hypocritically exposed.
The Sun has revealed that 36-year-old Insulate Britain leader Liam Norton failed to insulate his home in South London.
He later admitted: “I am a hypocrite.”
We also told you that a protester who was pulled from the roof of a train by police this week is the wife of the Transport to London boss.
Cathy Eastburn, 54, He has been arrested several times for blocking M25 and is reportedly one of the most prolific climate activists.
Yet her husband, Benedict Plowden, was a £170,000-a-year transport magnate in charge of roads and trains in London.
He resigned after the explanations.
The enraged mother said, ‘I’ll go over it then!’ she shouts. others ‘Why aren’t you at work?’ shouting the M25 after the eco-mafia block
