Elites accused of rank hypocrisy for flying to climate summit aboard private planes

A bevy of prominent figures from around the world flew aboard gas-guzzling aircraft to Scotland to the COP26 summit which is focused on tackling the supposedly imminent, existential threats posed by climate change.

The brazen display of hypocrisy from elites peddling climate alarmism has not gone unnoticed.

"Every world leader or dignitary that arrives to @COP26 by private jet is an eco-hypocrite. Fact," Nigel Farage tweeted.

"COP26 is a load of hypocritical garbage. The 30,000 climate alarmists flying in on their private jets and staying in luxury hotels while telling everyone else to give up meat, cars and gas boilers, can stick their New World Order where the Sun doesn't shine," David Kurten tweeted.

The conference has featured some of the same kinds of tired rhetoric many have come to expect from the peddlers of climate alarmism.

"Enough of killing ourselves with carbon. Enough of treating nature like a toilet. Enough of burning and drilling and mining our way deeper. We are digging our own graves," UN Secretary-General António Guterres claimed during a speech.

Billionaire Jeff Bezos, who founded Blue Origin and took a quick joy ride into space aboard a rocket earlier this year, flew his private plane to Scotland, Fox News reported.

"The Prince of Wales has been involved in fighting climate change and protecting our beautiful world far longer than most. We had a chance to discuss these important issues on the eve of #COP26 — looking for solutions to heal our world, and how the @BezosEarthFund can help," Bezos tweeted on Sunday.

According to the Washington Post, Prince Charles traveled from Rome to Glasgow aboard a private aircraft that utilized sustainable aviation fuel, which the outlet noted is more costly than traditional jet fuel.
