World government leaders, executives, celebrities and billionaires likely emitted thousands of pounds of carbon dioxide traveling to Davos this week where they warned of an impending “climate crisis.”
Global elites like George Soros, Bill Gates and John Kerry descended upon Davos, a remote Alpine resort town in Switzerland, for the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) annual meeting which lasted from Monday to Thursday. The conference’s “global agenda” focused largely upon sustainability and climate change with major event sessions titled “Safeguarding Our Planet and People” and “Staying on Course for Nature Action” while the group says it works with various stakeholders “limit global temperature rise and stave off disaster” on its website.
However, 10 private one-way flights that departed various European cities on Wednesday evening and landed in St. Gallen-Altenrhein Airport, the closest airstrip to Davos, emitted approximately 43,440 pounds of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation analysis of flight logs, estimated fuel burn data for different aircraft models and an International Air Transport Association emissions calculation. The figure likely represents a minimum estimate since it doesn’t factor in the number of passengers or freight weight for each flight analyzed.
One of the analyzed flights traveled about 335 miles from Tuscany, Italy, to St. Gallen-Altenrhein Airport in a Bombardier Challenger 6000, a luxurious gas-guzzling business jet, and spewed approximately 13,532 pounds of carbon dioxide, the data showed. It is unknown who traveled on the journey. – READ MORE
