Lily Cole exclaimed expertly Good morning Britain‘s coverage of climate change during an appearance on the series.
The actor and model were invited to discuss the climate crisis with hosts Robert Rinder and Charlotte Ritchie on Monday (August 15).
At the end of the interview, she appeared to refer to a controversial interview that had aired on the show back in April.
This interview was conducted by Richard Madeley, who drew Ofcom complaints after he clashed with Just Stop Oil protester Miranda Wheelan whom he accused of hypocrisy.
“The clothes you wear owe their existence to oil to some degree,” Madely told Wheelan, adding, “There are so many ways oil impacts your life as a protester, but you don’t realize it on.”
Cole, 34, seemed to address that comment and told dem GMB Host: “It’s really very important that we don’t focus too much on individual actions. Individual action is really important to walk the talk, but the reality is that it is impossible to be perfect.”
She continued: “If we focus on that and focus on hypocrisy, we stop having the more important conversation, which is how can we all work together, how do we create political change, how does it become easier for everyone.
“I really want to invite the media and Good morning Britain really trying to take the conversation away from that and toward solutions,” she told Rinder and Ritchie.
During the April interview, Wheelan Madeley said in response to his remark, “We’re talking about crop failures by 2030, we’re talking about people in this country living in fuel poverty because of the price of oil, and you’re talking about what I’m wearing.”
Madeley was criticized by viewers for his “patronizing” questioning.
