Billionaires Talking Climate Change Tie Up Air Traffic w/Their Private Jets

0

A cabal of some of the most high-profile people in media, finance, and technology descended on Idaho’s resort town of Sun Valley in private jets this past week to tackle, among other things, climate change.

On the day the conference began, traffic from private jets got to be so busy that the Federal Aviation Administration temporarily banned planes on the West Coast from taking off.

The FAA told Fox News it held planes on the ground at their departure airports to avoid congestion in the airspace around Sun Valley.

The manager of the Friedman Memorial Airport in the neighboring town of Hailey, predicted ahead of the conference that he expected more than 90 private planes.

A session preaching the perils of climate change to people who flew to the event on their own carbon-emitting Gulfstream jets rankled some business leaders that FOX Business contacted earlier in the week.

One CEO, ironically referring to Gates said, “Talking climate change on his private jet?”

Steve Milloy pointed out the obvious “Climate Hypocrisy”.  

So many billionaires in private jets flew to Sun Valley to hear 

@BillGates rave about climate that the FAA had to stop temporarily shutdown Western air space to other air traffic.

Often referred to as a summer camp for some of the world’s billionaires, this year’s fun in the sun was attended by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates.  Billy’s public image has taken a hit over his upcoming divorce and reported ties to alleged sexual deviant Jeffrey Epstein.  

The closing speech was given by super-wealthy Warren Buffett.  

There were no “working-class Americans” taking a week off from work, and driving their cars and trucks to Idaho, so they could speak about real-life, everyday concerns.  

Why make the trip when their voices would likely have been drowned out by the roar of all those private, carbon polluting, jets, shuttling “woke” billionaires to and from their next virtue-signaling event? 

Google Celebs Party Against Climate Change in Private Jets

0

Google is tossing a star-studded bash this week to promote the fight against climate change – but ironically the three-day powwow at a posh seaside resort in Italy stands to trigger a torrent of pollution itself.

While the guest list is top secret, those reportedly invited to “Camp Google” – hosted by company founders Larry Page and Sergei Brin – are Tom Cruise, Barack Obama, Mark Zuckerberg, Prince Harry, Leonardo DiCaprio, Bradley Cooper, Katy Perry, John Legend, Harry Styles, Stella McCarthy, Nick Jonas, Gayle King, and Barry Diller.

For 72 hours, some 300 invitees will cavort at the ultra-luxurious Verdura Resort & Spa on the southwest coast of Sicily. They will attend earthy-crunchy seminars on global warming, human rights, health, and education as well as bask in the sun, dip into the sea and enjoy gourmet meals and top-shelf booze.

But with many of the attendees pouring in in their fume-spewing private jets, helicopters and yachts – the atmosphere is no doubt distressed by a substantial carbon footprint.

According to the New York Post, if the number of jets that are expected show up, some 784,000 kilograms of CO2 will be released into the air. Excessive CO2 in the air is responsible for the so-called “Greenhouse Effect.”

And the news website DailyMail.com reports: “With environmental costs thrown in – guests arriving in Palermo on 114 fuel-guzzling planes, roaring around Italy in Maseratis, and enjoying the well-watered golf courses and swimming pools at their $903-a-night resort – the climate party quickly made a mockery of its grandiose intentions.”

Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, also took note of event’s double-edged sword, posting a Washington Examiner story on Twitter titled: “Climate activist celebrities arrive at ‘Google Camp’ by yachts, helicopters, and private jets.”

And Jason Kenney, the premier of Alberta, Canada, remarked on Twitter:

“Another celebrity environmental conference, another hypocritical display of mega yachts, private jets, and conspicuous consumption while billions live in energy poverty. They’re pretty flagrant about it: ‘do as I say, not as I do.'”

The splashy party costs Google about $20 million to put on and includes a private concert by Coldplay’s Chris Martin by the ancient ruins at Valley of the Temples.

“As for the brainstorming sessions, you need not worry that they’ll be too arduous on the guests. Morning discussions are reportedly followed by afternoons and evenings of relaxation, food, and drink,” Nick Bastone of Business Insider writes.

Among the yachts now anchored off the beach at Verdura, according to Forbes.com, are German pharmaceutical titan Udo J. Vetter’s Aquarius, and Barry Diller and Diane Von Furstenberg’s EOS. Meanwhile, London’s Daily Mirror reports an early speaker, a barefoot Prince Harry, stressed the importance of tackling climate change before a crowd of 200.

Nnamdi Kanu lived five-star life, travelled in private jets —Lai Mohammed

0

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, on Thursday, alleged that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu, lived a five-star life across several countries.

He said Kanu travelled on chartered private jets, lived in luxury apartments, and was always turning out in designer wears and shoes.

Speaking on Kanu’s re-arrest at a press conference in Abuja, Mohammed said the IPOB leader was re-arrested through a collaborative effort between Nigerian security agencies and their international counterparts.

The Minister said, “As you are aware, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, has been re-arrested and repatriated to Nigeria to resume his trial. This was made possible through the collaboration of Nigerian security and intelligence agencies.

“Kanu, who is facing an 11-count charge of treason, treasonable felony, terrorism and illegal possession of firearms, among others, jumped bail in 2017 and left the country. On Tuesday, Kanu was re-arraigned in court and ordered to be remanded in the custody of the DSS, while the case was adjourned till July 26-27, 2021

“Gentlemen, the Federal Government wishes to commend the Nigerian security and intelligence agencies, who collaborated to re-arrest the proscribed IPOB leader in one of the most classic operations of its type in the world. We commend the professionalism, diligence, patriotism, and painstaking efforts of our security and intelligence agencies. We also thank the sister international agencies that collaborated with us to pull off this arrest.

“It will interest Nigerians to know that for over two years, our security and intelligence agencies were on the trail of the proscribed IPOB leader as he lived a five-star life across several countries, travelling on chartered private jets, living in luxury apartments, and turning out in designer clothes and shoes. Of course, as we all saw, he was wearing an attire made by Fendi, a luxury Italian fashion brand, when he was arrested.”

From buying a $200,000 Lamborghini SUV as an anniversary gift to reportedly turning away hurricane evacuees, these 10 televangelists have caught flak for their actions and sermons.
