Formula 1 multi-millionaire Lewis Hamilton, the face of an industry responsible for 256,551 tonnes of CO2 emissions a year, took time out of his busy schedule to virtue signal about the state of the environment while enjoying his luxury speedboat.
Oh, the irony.
“Took the day off on Tuesday, a day for myself and no phone, no training, just me and Roscoe on the water. I had time to reflect on where we are in the world today, everyday I see something upsetting happening, people being abused, people suffering,” said Hamilton.
“Oceans and forest’s being destroyed. 2020 is such a heavy year. But it gives me hope seeing people come together, fighting for justice and doing more for our planet and the people in it. I’m sending you all positive waves, keep pushing and inspiring those around you,” he added.
