The World Economic Forum’s annual political and business glitterati conference is being held this week in Davos, Switzerland.
To be sure, we will be treated to staggering levels of hypocrisy and tone-deafness as clips and messaging from attendees as they stream their way into the media.
In 2023, global elitists were slammed for their “ultra-polluting” jets as they discussed the climate crisis.
“Europe is experiencing the warmest January days ever recorded and communities around the world are grappling with extreme weather events supercharged by the climate crisis,” Klara Maria Schenk, a campaigner for environmental group Greenpeace International, said in a statement ahead of the conference.
“Meanwhile, the rich and powerful flock to Davos in ultra-polluting, socially inequitable private jets to discuss climate and inequality behind closed doors,” she continued.
The flock of private jets and caravans of limousines heading to Davos for elite summits is legendary. So the question must be asked: Why are no climate protesters gluing themselves to runways or asphalt?
