Was Alex Jones right in how he spoke to David Mayer de Rothschild?
David de Rothschild was a guest on the Alex Jones show
David Mayer de Rothschild is a fabulously wealthy member of the Rothschild banking family, so in other words he is part of the elite who run the world but does this mean that he should be condemned because of his background? Does this mean that he personally agrees with what others in his family believe or have done? I personally don't think so.
Alex Jones, a name well-known to conspiracy theorists and truthseekers, is a man I usually have a lot of time for, however, I thought he acted really badly when he had David de Rothschild as a guest on his show back in 2007.

Alex Jones versus David de Rothschild
Although Jones made some very good points he became rude and insulting to his guest and in my opinion failed miserably in making his audience think badly of De Rothschild. If anything he achieved the opposite.
As I see it, just because David comes from the Rothschild family does not mean that he is guilty of any evil crimes against humanity that Jones would like to pin on him. Because someone is related by blood to someone else or is part of a family does not mean anything more than that. Often children can disagree very strongly with their parents or other relatives and should not be tarred with the same brush because of the bad ways of people they are related to.
Nevertheless, I don't think De Rothschild's views are always correct either and I am not at all convinced that Global Warming has been caused by people nor that "green taxes" that have been put forward as a solution are the answer. I think that De Rothchild's opinions on the throwaway society are right though - we do need to cut back on our wasteful ways of living and we need to find solutions to the very real problems we face.
David de Rothschild is known as an adventurer, an explorer and an environmentalist. He is the founder of Adventure Ecology and also the author of The Live Earth Global Warming Survival Handbook: 77 Essential Skills to Stop Climate Change—Or Live Through It.
He has an advanced Diploma in Natural Medicine from the College of Naturopathic Medicine, and he is the owner of an organic farm in New Zealand. This is of interest to me because it shows that De Rothschild favours alternative healthcare and healthy food as opposed to what is generally available.
David de Rothschild was highly acclaimed by magazine and he has travelled to the North Pole, crossing the Arctic from Russia to Canada. He has also journeyed to Ecuador and seen the rainforests and their ongoing destruction for himself. National Geographic
David de Rothschild is embarking on another new adventure, in many ways following in the footsteps of the late Thor Heyerdahl, who crossed the ocean on his raft the Kon-Tiki and proved that such journeys across the sea were possible. De Rothschild is sailing a raft known as the Plastiki across the Pacific Ocean and it is made up of 12,000 plastic bottles.

Great Pacific Garbage Patch
He will be passing by the on his journey, a vast area spanning hundreds of miles made up of floating garbage and held there by a vortex of currents. Besides showing the degree to which plastic waste is not being recycled but is a major source of pollution he will be raising awareness of the extreme dangers to marine life that such rubbish can create. Turtles and seabirds such as albatrosses mistake plastic floating items for jellyfish and swallow the indigestible trash, which often results in their deaths. Great Pacific Garbage Patch
De Rothschild has the wealth to do whatever he likes and yet he has chosen to pursue an often very difficult and hazardous way of life on his expeditions and adventures. I have included some videos and links to information and I will let you make up your own minds about him.
