Lily Cole calls for media to stop ‘tearing apart’ climate activists for alleged hypocrisy

Lily Cole has called for the media to stop “tearing apart” climate activists for perceived hypocrisy.

“I’ve seen in the media in general, many climate activists being torn apart for hypocrisy. Over the silliest things, like plastic in their clothes, or any type of imperfection they may have,” Cole said on Good Morning Britain.

Cole was invited to take part in a discussion on climate change on 15 August.
