Oh the Hypocrisy: 1,700 Private Jets Fly To Global Warming Forum

Our grid depends on this mineral

Every year, members of the World Economic Forum gather in the small resort town of Davos, Switzerland to discuss the most pressing issues that are effecting the global economy. Its ranks are filled with the wealthiest people in the world, and include monarchs, former and current heads of state, CEOs, and celebrities.

Much like the Bilderberg Group or G20, their members represent the tip of the pyramid so to speak. They wield immense power and influence in politics, business, and media, and what goes on during their meetings can have drastic effects on the world at large.

For a large part of the forum’s existence, one of most prolific topics has been the subject of global warming, due in part to the efforts of Al Gore. While Gore has been frequently criticized for his sprawling energy consuming mansion, it should come as no surprise that the rest of the wealthy members of the World Economic Forum might be equally careless towards their carbon footprint.

A squadron of 1,700 private jets are rumbling into Davos, Switzerland, this week to discuss global warming and other issues as the annual World Economic Forum gets underway.

The influx of private jets is so great, the Swiss Armed Forces has been forced to open up a military air base for the first time ever to absorb all the super rich flying their private jets into the event, reports Newsweek.

“Decision-makers meeting in Davos must focus on ways to reduce climate risk while building more efficient, cleaner, and lower-carbon economies,” former Mexican president Felipe Calderon told USA Today.

Davos, which has become a playground of sorts for the global elite, is expected to feature at least 40 heads of state and 2,500 top business executives. Former Vice President-turned-carbon billionaire Al Gore and rapper Pharrell Williams will be there as well; each plans to discuss global warming and recycling respectively.

What? There’s no carpooling for the global elite? None of them thought to share a private jet or ride coach like the rest of us? Would that be too much ask? I mean, it’s the least you could do if you’re going to stand in front of the world and tell the rest of us to reduce our carbon footprint. At least try to put a little effort into maintaining the illusion that you care.

I know what you’re thinking. You’re trying to imagine the likes of Bill Gates and Al Gore riding in coach, trying to avoid their fair share of sneezing passengers and irritable  stewardesses, while telling the kid behind them to stop kicking their seat. For your health I suggest you end that fantasy before you laugh yourself into a hernia. Save it for the other topics of discussion that will be shared at the World Economic Forum, like tackling economic inequality.

Another big theme of the mega-rich confab will be combating “income inequality” and how the world’s rich can pay their fair share to reduce the gap between top earners and the lower class. Admission price for Davos: roughly $40,000 a ticket.

The World Economic Forum will also feature discussions on gender equality and opportunities for women. According to the World Economic Forum’s own statistics, just 17% of all 2015 participants are women.

If you ask me, the World Economic Forum has nothing to do with solving the world’s problems. It sounds more like an exercise in collective vanity for the global elite. I never thought I’d say this, but they actually make Bilderberg look good. At least they keep their discussions a secret. We don’t have to sit here and listen to them tell the whole world how smart and wealthy they are. We don’t have to hear them blather on about what they think is best for the world, and why we should follow their lead.

So please, if you’re a member of the WEF and you’re reading this, do us all a favor and hide in the shadows like every self respecting elitist should.

    Just last week I was reviewing a “Warmista”site (you can already see
    where I am coming from right?) from some University Scholars who were
    paid to do a study, and they choose to come up with a model that showed
    the cost of a ton of CO2. Their estimate was 6 times higher than any
    supposed cap and trade type

    The Warmistas insist on hanging their hat on computer models, and it is
    becoming increasingly more difficult for them to hide the fact that they
    are ignoring REAL DATA. Check this chart.

    Is there a collective word to describe a bunch of rich arrogant sociopathic tossers. Would be a good place to wipe of the face of the Earth while they are all together.

    • Smarty

      Maybe Russian President Poontang will read this, and figure it’s a good idea. He could solve a lot of his problems all at once….

    • Joe Lizak

      Right! Where’s a young snackbar wearing his virgin suit when you need him.

    • Gregory Walls

      Yeah…in the states, the collective word is “Congress”

  • Cat-astrophe

    No big deal. They are the do as I say, not as I do boys, psychopathic whores the lot.

  • Joe Lizak

    But do they use the 1.5 gallon flush toilets when they take a dump in Davos?

  • Tom

    Seriously? Is this the Onion?

  • Sir TuberKopf

    The Global Warming movement is all about installing a global Marxist central government. Evidence..watch this: http://youtu.be/7jzBWmpzifc

    Sorry it is nearly an hour, but you can fast forward through parts.

    Global warming is built on blatant lies, the fine print requires annoying things like the US Constitution to be nullified via international treaty. Interesting how they have no way to save the planet except by eliminating the Civil rights of the American people!

    You want global warming? How ’bout when the elements melt with fervent heat? God’s gotta’ smelter the joint to clean it up, scrape off the dross …

  • RGP

    If they want to pay $40,000 per person to stay somewhere for a couple of days they can come stay at my place and I don’t care if they bring a jet. Thinking…. $40,000 x 1,700 = $68,000,000 in my pocket for a weekend of tolerating their crap.

    • Joe Lizak

      Heck for $40,000 bucks I’d even listen to Al Gore give a boring speech in my living room.

      • Garry Best

        I hope the speech he makes includes just a little bit about all the previous ICE AGES that the world has had. Sorry, my bad. There doesn’t seem to be a way to make $$$$$ from ice ages.

        • Joe Lizak

          Speaking of ice ages. Imagine…just 12,000 years ago (a blink of an eye in earth years) New York City and Boston was under 1 mile of ice !! Fruitcakes like Gore want to preach global warming and tax all of us when all research (maybe 200 years) is all the information they really have. It’s like criteeking Gone With the Wind after only watching the first 10 seconds of the movie.

  • Anothereno

    Ban flying 😛

  • Ben William

    Yeah, they don’t teach the kids at the Universities about this. lol

  • steveo77

    Even the melting ice caps area a lie. Yes they were quote small in 2011 2012. that was a 2 sigma variation as part of a natural cycle.

    now the antarctic has record ice, and arctic is coming back strong.
