What is it called ...

that curious ability that some people have to hold on to two completely contradictory principles at the same time?

The CEO of Google, Eric Schmidt talks to Portfolio.com about his company and what 'Sergey and Larry do'
They're heavily involved in new wireless technologies, climate-change stuff, making things faster,
meanwhile he is jetting around the world in his Gulfstream G-550 on his frequent business trips
It's my hobby.

Isn't this the "do no evil" company?

A G550 burns 0.87 gallons of jet fuel per nautical mile at 41,000 ft, Mach 0.80 and mid-cruise weight source: Road and Track

Our friend George called it "doublethink" I believe.
