Irony Alert: A Thousand Private Jets Deliver Globalist Elite to Davos for Climate Change Summit

by VIRGINIA HALE 24 Jan 2018

More than 1,000 private jet flights have been delivering globalist elites to the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, where attendees are discussing — among other topics — the ‘major threat’ of climate change.
Airports around the Swiss ski resort will see the number of private jets spike 335 per cent during the annual meeting of world elites, according to Air Charter Service (ACS).

Research commissioned by the jet hire company found an average 218 private jet movements a day during the weeklong forum, compared to the 65 daily flights Swiss airfields usually deal with.

Andy Christie, group director for executive jets at ACS, said clients last year opted for expensive “heavy jets” to their lighter, more environmentally-friendly alternatives, with Gulfstream GVs and Global Expresses both being used more than 100 times each.

“With the length of some of the journeys, these slightly larger aircraft would have been needed, but with such wealthy individuals attending, they can afford to use such aircraft from wherever they were coming – as well as the element of larger aircraft being seen as a status symbol,” he said.

So hey, I’ve hired a private jet to go to the summit. Want me to pick you up? We can jet pool.

No thanks, I’ve also hired my own private jet, see you there!

The summit opened with a speech from Narendra Modi, in which he identified climate change as the number one threat to civilisation, and called for more wealth transfers from rich countries ....

Yes, wealth transfer. That's the ticket! That's the ticket!

And there is the smoking gun that the entire eco terrorist movement is funded and controlled by the uber rich.

To call this a climate summit is simply wrong. It was basically a business meeting, and climate change was a topic that came up.

Where do you get 1,000 private jets in Davos? They won't be sitting at the air field until the conference ends. They will drop off whoever chartered it then come back when the conference has concluded, if not sooner depending on schedules.

Research commissioned by the jet hire company found an average 218 private jet movements a day during the weeklong forum, compared to the 65 daily flights Swiss airfields usually deal with.
Dance as if no one's watching, sing as if no one's listening, and live everyday as if it were your last.

Simple math, 218-65=153 extra flights per day! Times 7 days equals 1071.

Number of flights doesn't equate 1,000 private jets sitting in Davos.

Off topic here:

Davos has beautiful wooden hockey arena that hosts the Spengler Cup each year at Christmas time.

I don't believe it says anywhere they are sitting in Davos. I see words like delivering but not sitting. Might have missed it.

You are DRASTICALLY missing the point.

It's not about the number of jets "sitting" at the airport, it's about the gross amount of spending and pollution our leaders are creating so they can get together and talk about pollution and spending.

Not missing the point. You really expect world leaders to fly on a commerical airline with their entourage and security detail for a conference of this scope?
