The Davos hooligans destroying the planet with carbon
I suppose the main problem at the moment is the appalling carbon footprint of the Davos meeting.
I’m able to add most of the following statistics courtesy of the Bonner Private Letter, which I receive regularly. A lot of it is repetitive, and Mr Bonner clearly doesn’t understand the digital revolution, but he is smart and he undoubtedly is well educated and can think clearly. Those characteristics are rare these days.
For a start, how about John Kerry, the US Climate Czar:
“If you stop and think, about it, it’s pretty extraordinary that we, a select group of human beings, because of whatever touched us at some point in our lives, are able to sit in a room and come together and actually talk about saving the planet. I mean, it’s so, almost extraterrestrial to think about quote ‘saving the planet.’ If you said that to most people, most people they think you’re just a crazy, tree-hugging, leftie, liberal... you know, do-gooder, whatever...and there’s no relationship. But really, that’s where we are.”
As you can see the guy is barely literate, but has a stupendous view of himself. But hold on a minute. He is a climate freak and green apologist, but how about a few facts about the blighter.
“The Free Beacon reviewed 75 of Kerry's official travel announcements from March 2021 to July 2022, which show Kerry has flown roughly 180,100 miles—the equivalent of traveling around the world more than seven times—to discuss climate change with various world leaders. Planes on average produce 53.3 pounds of carbon dioxide per mile traveled, according to carbon emissions modeling website BlueSkyModel, meaning Kerry's flights have produced 9.54 million pounds, or 4,772 tons, of carbon—roughly 300 times the average American's carbon footprint for an entire year. From May 13, 2021, to May 19, 2021, for example, Kerry traveled to Rome, London, and Berlin before returning stateside. Those flights total roughly 10,100 miles and 538,000 pounds of carbon.”
‘And that‘s just official travel. From the time Czar Kerry was appointed by president Biden, or whoever is pulling Biden’s strings, he has also taken the family Gulfstream GIV-SP private jet (est $4.5 million) for a few spins too “emitting more than 715,000 pounds of carbon in the process.
Much like the Catholic Church’s system of “indulgences” in the Middle Ages, whereby a sinner could hope to have his peccadilloes mitigated or even absolved in the afterlife by making a “fixed monetary payment” to the church, Czar Kerry offsets his carbon-based transgressions with dollar-based credits.
According to a Greenpeace report released last Friday, the emissions generated from the luxury jets flying in and out of airports serving Davos last year were equivalent to those produced by about 350,000 average cars for a week. Another 1,000+ private jets shuttled this year’s saviors to the mountaintop…’
