Some things are just too perfect for words.
The people insisting there's a climate apocalypse don't believe there's a climate apocalypse. https://t.co/Qk2aUkfC8m

#ClimateChange is on the agenda at #Davos. Perhaps they should start in the airplane parking lot where 1,500 PRIVATE JETS are expected during the economic conference. https://t.co/wPv6SvxWq5 pic.twitter.com/f6TstSsnde

And the number of private jets isn’t the only thing that’s growing, but also the size of the planes, according to The Guardian:
Political and business leaders and lobbyists are opting for bigger, more expensive aircrafts, according to analysis by the Air Charter Service, which found the number of private jet flights grew by 11% last year.
“There appears to be a trend towards larger aircraft, with expensive heavy jets the aircraft of choice, with Gulfstream GVs and Global Expresses both being used more than 100 times each last year,” said Andy Christie, private jets director at the ACS.
Gee, why are they having so much trouble convincing people to heed their warnings?
Drives me nuts…the “do as I say, not as I do” crowd.

Give them the benefit of the doubt. I'm sure they Learjet-pooled.

Some people claim the right to steal the remaining carbon budget from future generations and people in poorer parts of the world.

Crap like this makes us really difficult for regular folks to take our leader’s word on climate change seriously. ? https://t.co/DOxsidYWpQ

They expect everybody else to believe their alarmism while behaving like they don’t even believe it.
