Green Davos Hypocrites Prefer Private Jets Amid Alleged Climate Worries

The Davos elite say they are more worried than ever about climate change. But that isn’t stopping them chartering nearly 1,500 private jet flights to attend the World Economy Forum in Davos.

The Davos elite say they are more worried than ever about climate change. But that isn’t stopping them chartering private jets in record numbers.

The convenience and comfort of flying privately rather than commercially appears to outweigh any concerns about the outsized carbon footprint it involves, judging by a number-crunching exercise by the company Air Charter Service (ACS).

It forecast nearly 1,500 private jet flights over the week of the World Economic Forum (WEF) to airports near Davos in the Swiss Alps.

That would be up from the more than 1,300 aircraft movements seen at last year’s forum, despite climate change registering as the top risk factor identified for the global economy in a survey of WEF movers and shakers last week.

In a blog post, the website privatefly.com forecast an even higher number of private flight movements related to Davos this week, of around 2,000 in and out of local airports.
