He has been picked as an expert judge to help find the nation's next biggest superstar on hit TV show The Voice.

But when arrived at a climate change debate recently, he showed a shocking lack of judgement.

The 37-year-old Black Eyed Peas star arrived for the talk at Oxford University in his private helicopter.

Seemingly oblivious to the furore that it might cause, the pop star even tweeted pictures of the 'hip.hop.copter' when he landed.

According to the Daily Star, he then spent about an hour with Myles Allen - a leading climate expert - before heading off to carry the Olympic torch in Taunton.

His trip from London was a total of 286 miles and used 71.5 gallons of fuel, ploughing three-quarters of a tonne of CO2 into the atmosphere, which is the same as the average UK person produces in an entire month.

Of course, this is nothing new. Check out how many private jets and huge limos are present at every UN/IPCC climate conference. If these alarmists are so worried about global warming, then they should change their own behavior first. Otherwise, it's just another excuse to control other people's lives and spend other people's money.

Reactions from fellow hypocrites?
But his transportation to the event did not escape the attention of those at the university - or physics professor Mr Allen.

He said: 'The irony didn’t escape everybody. But he’s committed to the issues and he’s written songs about it.'

He added that a better understanding of the problems is probably more important than whether he travelled in the helicopter.

Oh, he's written songs about it. That makes it okay then. If I tweet "CO2 is bad!" then I can keep driving my SUV?
