Oceanfront home? Really. I thought Ocean Levels around the world were rising due to Polar Ice Caps melting. 🤔

If they really wanted to do it right, they could have imported skilled African artisans to build a 6,000 square foot hut with mud walls and thatched roof.

This is the elite thinking they are demonstrating to the working class how best to live. They believe that electric cars provide sustainability, meanwhile the local car dealer nearby me sold 1 EV this week while at the same time he sold 100 gas fueled cars. They think they know what is best. Ask Robespierre, he thought the same thing right up until the end!!

Having money does not mean your intelligent or have common sense. Usually it’s the exact opposite. What fools. I love to sell them some sustainable bridge to Manhattan.

I didn't realize that sustainability is directly proportional to cost.

My second home in West Virginia is made of wood and is painted green. Same thing?

What is this vapid couple going to do when they have smoked all their hemp insulation? Because clearly they are. The narcissism is steroidal.
