'Why Don't You Practice What You Preach?': Piers Morgan Grills Climate Activist's Hypocritical Lifestyle

British T.V. host Piers Morgan called out a climate activist about her lifestyle choices, which are not helpful for the planet, as protesters are staging demonstrations across the United Kingdom.

The ongoing protests has been organized by Extinction Rebellion, who want the United Kingdom's Parliament to take action on climate change. Demonstrations include clogging roads and blocking bridges with their bodies and other big objects.

Hundreds of protesters have been arrested for causing traffic disruptions, but organizers say they will continue to come out in force for the next two weeks. 

Morgan asked Extinction Rebellion’s co-leader Skeena Rathor how she arrived to their studio. Rathor said a car sent by the station had picked her up.

When Morgan then asked her if she had a T.V. at her home and if her children use computers, Rathor said she did not think it was relevant to "the planet emergency."

“Do you see the problem with all this? You go on about ‘My kids can’t get out of bed because they’re all so terrified,’ I’m not surprised they're terrified because your mum’s telling them everyday the planet’s about to end, and yet, I bet your own carbon footprint, for all the stuff I’ve just mentioned is terrible," Morgan said.

"So why don't you give your computer, give up your television, give up your air conditioning, walk your kids to school, get a bike to the studio. Why don't you practice what you preach?" he added.

Rathor said the problem is not about individual carbon footprints, but it is a "system-wide issue" and said she would not be able to "raise the alarm" about the issue if she did not participate in the system.
