Generally, when you hear someone preach you would like to hear them practice what they preach as well.
It’s why whenever some people hear liberal politicians talking on and on about how they care for the poor yet live in multi million dollar mansions yet claim to be public servants. It’s sickening.
It’s like when living in Michigan during the auto crisis about ten years ago when the big three auto companies were coming to Washington to ask for a bailout from the government so they could stay in business they all came down separately in private jets that probably cost about a hundred thousand dollars just to get off the ground.
If you are trying to preach against global warming you probably shouldn’t be doing something that produces a lot of what you are saying is killing the environment.
Well, it seems that some of the richest of the rich are only concerned with making money and getting to where they need to be.
At least 1,500 private jets are expected to descend on Davos and nearby airports in Switzerland this week as the international financial and political elite gathers to talk about global climate challenges.
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 World Economic Forum (WEF) movers and shakers last week.
Sir David Attenborough, a lead speaker this year, has already stated that climate is the issue of our time.
The veteran broadcaster, 92, used his acceptance speech to tell business leaders and governments to come up with “practical solutions”.
Speaking at the beginning of the forum on Monday, the Blue Planet and Dynasties narrator told the crowd he is “quite literally from another age” and warned of “man-made disaster of global scale” that lies ahead.
Industry group Air Charter Service calculated the private jet flights over the week, as delegates fly in to hear the likes of Mr. Attenborough speak at an event boasting a basic entry ticket price of U.S.$60,000 – per person.
Davos is a small town in the Swiss Alps, around 92 miles south-east of Zurich.
