Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and self-proclaimed global warming enthusiast, was just called out for the world to see for being the biggest hypocrite out there.
The tech billionaire used Twitter to profess his disdain of President Trump's decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Accord, and in turn, Musk will be departing from all future presidential councils.
Musk told his Twitter followers that global warming is real and that Trump's decision to leave the Paris Accord is "not good" for America or the world. Hours after the tweet, Ted Cruz took to social media to mock Musk's concern for global warming considering he actively flies around in his private jet.

If the billionaire was so concerned about global warming and so dedicated to reducing the world's carbon output, wouldn't he be flying in commercial planes rather than private ones?
"In support of Paris," Cruz began his tweet. "CA billionaires pledge to never again fly private, will only fly commercial. J/K--will quit symbolic councils instead." Musk has been under fire in the past for his liberal use of private jets and even upgraded his Dassault Falcon 900 B to a Gulfstream G650 ER.

It's about time someone called out this billionaire for his hypocrisy when he is "so passionate" about ending global warming, but yet, will not give up his private jet. Actions speak louder than words, Elon Musk!
