Gotta love it when a bunch of Green Deal globalists travel via private jet to Switzerland annually to discuss various ways in which to curb the movements of the little people, who dare to drive non-electric cars and dare to eat a burger every now and then.
Less frequently now, given inflation.
Fortunately, Greenpeace recently issued a scathing report regarding the hypocritical globalists, which was rather amusing to read, to say the least.
“New analysis commissioned by Greenpeace International shows that 1,040 private jets flew in and out of airports serving the Swiss mountain resort of Davos during the week of the 2022 World Economic Forum (WEF), causing CO2 emissions from private jets four times greater than an average week,” the environmental organization reported.
How about that. Globalists causing four times the level of carbon emissions. Even more impressive when considering how few global elites there are relative to most of the population.
Furthermore, it was not as though many of these individuals were hailing from Antarctica.
“Of all these flights, 53% were short-haul flights below 750 km that could have easily been train or car trips, with 38% flying ultra-short distances of under 500 km. The shortest flight recorded was only 21 km,” Greenpeace continued
So, in other words, most of the elitists could have taken a bloody train.
“The research, conducted by Dutch environmental consultancy CE Delft, found that the number of private jet flights to and from airports serving Davos doubled during the 2022 World Economic Forum meeting compared to average weeks, causing CO2 emissions equivalent to about 350,000 average cars in the same time period,” the organization added.
One thing is for sure: 350,000 globalists were most certainly not in attendance at Davos … likely not even 350.
Yet they collectively contributed more to environmental destruction than 350,000 individual cars.
And the public is expected to believe they actually care about the environment?
“The issue of private jets garnered global public attention last year after several public figures faced criticism for taking ultra-short trips by private jet. The analysis released by Greenpeace International comes days before political and business leaders head into Davos to attend the 2023 World Economic Forum, with its self-proclaimed goal of wanting to tackle climate change and other ‘ongoing crises’ calling for ‘bold collective action,’” Greenpeace continued, directly taking aim at globalist hypocrisy.
“According to a study by Transport & Environment, private jets are 5 to 14 times more polluting than commercial planes (per passenger), and 50 times more polluting than trains. In 2018, 50% of all aviation emissions were caused by only 1% of the world’s population,” the organization continued.
Yep. And those same elitists have the gall to rant and rave over Ford pickup trucks.
And, in perhaps the most obviously biased laws ever, Greenpeace wryly noted that the European Union (EU), which has been vocal in its dislike of Trump, became a lot quieter in terms of legislating private jet usage.
“Private jets are not regulated in the EU, even though they are the most polluting mode of transportation on the planet per passenger kilometre,” Greenpeace noted.
So, in one of the most nanny state, regulatory environments on the planet, private jet regulations are apparently nonexistent?
Makes a lot of sense … for communists.
Laura Ingraham of Fox News also provided rather scathing commentary regarding the hypocrisy on full display at WEF 2023.
“This year, the star of the World Economic Forum – it wasn’t Ukrainian President Zelenskyy or opera singer Renee Fleming. Well, it isn’t a person at all. It’s a system, a system of governance that we know is the envy of the forum organizers and attendees. We’re talking, of course, about Communist China’s one-party state,” Ingraham remarked in disbelief.
Yep. The communist analogy is apt, as well as a zero-sum game set to favor the globalists, from Big Pharma to Big Brother, both of whom are buttressed by Big Tech.
“So I say, here’s to the troublemakers, the good kind, those who resist the collectivist solutions that Devos-ians champion. Those who call out the meaningless virtue-signaling of the corporate titans and those who reject the money and access dangled by the elites who happily shill for China,” Ingraham proclaimed.
Not to mention president’s sons who continue to sell “art” for upwards of $500,000 to China …
