The Guardian newspaper has blamed the middle-class for climate change in a scathing new article.
The left-wing outlet reported the richest 10 per cent cause up to 40 times more climate-heating carbon emissions than the poorest 10 per cent.
He went on to describe how many people in Britain will fall into the richest 10 per cent.
The article said: “The world’s richest 10 per cent encompasses most of the middle classes in developed countries – anyone paid more than about $40,000 (£32,000) a year.”

It added: “But the 10 per cent are responsible for half of all global emissions, making them key to ending the climate crisis.”
The mean average salary for all workers in the UK is £33,402 in 2022.
The median wage for just full-time workers in Britain stood at just £33,000 at the same time.
However, the article clarified the top 10 per cent within the UK are paid more than £59,000.

Carbon emissions also drastically vary by country, with China emerging as the world’s top polluter on 30.9 per cent in 2021.
The United States was next on the list with 13.5 per cent and India took up third place on 7.3 per cent.
Britons were responsible for 0.9 per cent of emissions - behind Australia, Canada and Germany in 17th place.
There has been somewhat of a push-back in the UK against carbon-cutting policies, including Ulez.
Rishi Sunak celebrated a rare by-election victory in Uxbridge & South Ruislip this summer after attracting voters dismayed with Sadiq Khan’s levy on motorist.
The Prime Minister later watered down a number of net zero commitments amid concerns about how Britons could foot the bill during the cost-of-living crisis.
Sunak said he was trying to “bring the country along with us” and save families thousands of pounds by delaying the green pledges.
“I’ve got an opportunity to change things and what I don’t want to do is make yet more short-term decisions, easy ways out and ultimately not be straight with the country about what those mean for them,” he added.
