Actor Jackie Chan is the latest recipient of the Albert Gore Jr. Eco-Hypocrisy Award for the following offset of irony…

Chan’s been a longtime champion of the environment, as evidenced by this profile from 2005:

Jackie Chan may not drive a hybrid (or maybe he does) but he has taken meaningful action on behalf of the environment.
[…]
He has also offered his star power to environmental efforts on the mainland. In 2004 Jackie participated in the effort to build a Green Great Wall in China when he planted trees near Beijing’s Great Wall to promote awareness of environmental protection. In recognition for his commitment to the environment in China, he was appointed an Environment and Culture Ambassador by the State Environmental Protection Administration.

In 2011, Chan’s appeared in a PSA about saving energy:

Chan urges people to turn off the lights, turn down the thermostat and use public transportation.

Which all leads to the reason he’s the recipient of the Albert Gore Jr. Eco-Hypocrisy Award:

null

Might as well go ahead and turn those thermostats back up everybody.
