I'm sure he works on eliminating his carbon foot print and all that, but that's not the way it should work.
It's not a game of "I can afford to compensate for my carbon foot print, so just let me be." That just turns it into "I am rich and you are not, so you better make sure you don't cause global warming. Hey, I'm buying trees."
If these are really his ideals, why does he not try his best to minimise his carbon footprint before planting trees comes in? It's not that hard to turn a light of or to share a jet in the fancy business class department.
